AMD Ryzen 9 PIB Package Pictured Up Close

AMD will differentiate its high-end Ryzen 9 desktop processor PIB (processor-in-a-box) retail package from that of the Ryzen 7 series with a more premium-looking box. Retailer PC Part Picker put up this picture of the Ryzen 9 box up-close, which also surfaced in E3-2019 presentations by AMD. The box is made of a thicker paperboard than the one the Ryzen 7 ships in, and features a 2-piece clamshell design, in which the upper part slides off. A faux carbon fiber texture dominates four faces of the top half, while the orange bottom one features a chrome insert with the "9" brand extension. The chip's PCI-Express gen 4.0 support earns prominent mention on the front face. The box contains the processor, an AMD Wraith Prism RGB cooling solution that's capable of handling thermal loads of up to 140W, aRGB cables for the cooler, a case badge, and some documentation. AMD will use this package for both the Ryzen 9 3900X and the flagship Ryzen 9 3950X.

The Ryzen 9 3900X will launch on 7th July, and will be AMD's top-dog until the 3950X comes along some time in September. The 3900X is a 12-core/24-thread processor clocked at 3.80 GHz with 4.60 GHz boost, designed to compete with the Core i9-9900K, and priced at USD $499. The 3950X is a 16-core/32-thread part that occupies a price-point way above, at USD $749. This chip ticks at 3.50 GHz with 4.70 GHz boost, despite its high core-count. Both chips have their TDP rated at 105W and include a Wraith Prism RGB cooling solution.

I just hope 3900x can OC to 4.8ghz all 12 cores no downlocking on a top of the line $99 Noctua cooler with good temps... if yes... then I am sold... and probably retiring from PC building for a solid 5+ years minus gpu upgrades here and there.

Why would you.

If the 4.6Ghz Boost is archieved by PBO/XFR then it's pretty much at it's limits already. The 2700X boosts up to 4.35Ghz and manual OC's show nothing better then 4.4Ghz on avg.

So yeah, going through all that effort while XFR does a really good job already .. Mweh.

I'm imagining disappointment when it cant get past it's own boost.

The only relevant figure is how high can an all core clock speed go and be maintained....I'd be amazed if its anything higher than 4.4Ghz.

Love how the remaining small percent of blue fanboys are whining in their pillows.

4.0ghz on all 12 cores you mean...

Apples and Oranges kiddo. :)

You compare an 8c/8t cpu to a 12c/24t part?

Reminds me of the Netburst era where Intel fanboys were polishing their 4Ghz+ CPU's that were slower than AMD Athlon's at 3Ghz range. History as we know does like to repeat itself.
