The second half of the year 2019 is set to bring a new change and advancement to the processor arena. The launch of Third Generation Threadripper processors among the AMD Ryzen processors has been rather impressive. The first 7 nm processors coming from the stable of AMD are aimed at the consumer market and HEDT (High-End Desktop) market simultaneously. 

The processors launched would include AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X and AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X. One more processor in the making is labelled AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X and will be launched in 2020.

AMD explicitly compares its Threadripper Third gen processors to the Intel Core 10th Generation processors. In fact, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X is compared efficiently with the Intel Core i9-10980XE. In more areas than one, the flagship to flagship comparison puts the AMD offering as a clear winner in the top end High-End Desktop segment. The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3960X is compared to the Intel Core i9-10920X. 

The only advantage that the Intel Core 10th Generation processor has been able to achieve would be the lack of the need for a motherboard refresh. It works with the X299 motherboards and thus can be affordable when compared to the AMD Ryzen Threadripper Third Generation processors that would need a complete motherboard overhaul as they work with the new TRX4 socket.
