AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 3.5 GHz 16-Core AM4 Processor
Key Features
  • 16 Cores & 32 Threads
  • 3.5 GHz Base Clock
  • 4.7 GHz Max Boost Clock
  • Socket AM4
The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 3.5 GHz 16-Core AM4 Processor is a powerful 16-core processor with 32 threads, designed for socket AM4 motherboards. Built with Zen 2 architecture, the third-generation 7nm Ryzen processor offers increased performance compared to its predecessor. It has a base clock speed of 3.5 GHz and can reach a max boost clock speed of 4.7 GHz. Moreover, it features 64MB of L3 cache, 24 PCIe Gen 4 lanes, and support for dual-channel 3200 MHz DDR4 RAM. Users should pair it with an AMD X500-series motherboard to fully take advantage of PCIe 4.0. This processor has a 105W TDP (Thermal Design Power) and does not include a cooling solution. Please note that it does not have an integrated GPU, so a dedicated graphics card is required.

AMD GameCache

AMD GameCache is designed to reduce memory latency for higher frame rates in top titles.

Precision Boost 2

AMD Ryzen processors monitor energy consumption and temperature. When the processor knows it's running cool and quiet, it can raise clock speeds in precise 25 MHz steps for any application without pausing work.

One Click Overclocking

Precision Boost Overdrive works with your motherboard to boost clock speeds and lets you overclock with a single click.

AMD StoreMI Technology

AMD StoreMI technology can combine SSD and HDD storage into a single hybrid drive, which stores frequently used files and programs on the SSD and other data on the larger HDD.

AMD SenseMI Technology

AMD's SenseMI technology is a set of learning and adapting features that help the AMD Ryzen processor customize its performance to you and your applications, thanks to machine intelligence (MI).

Yes, the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X 3.5 GHz 16-Core AM4 Processor BH #AM3950X is overclockable, however, I could not point you in the direction of a video on how to do it since none of the videos are done by B&H Photo. We are not responsible for any damages done to the CPU in the process of overclocking from an unverified source. Sorry for the inconvenience.
