Both the processor models are built on 7nm process technology for efficient operation and based on Zen2 architecture, so every core is 15% more efficient than last year’s model. According to AMD, the new 3rd Gen Threadripper stands head in shoulders above last year’s Core X models from Intel.

AMD’s new 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper processors will be available from November 25 at a price of $1399 for the 3960X model and $1999 for 3970X. However, last month, Intel announced an updated lineup, which is also expected to have better performance than previous Core X models under $1000.
