At its E3 2019 event today, AMD has unveiled the second 3rd Gen Ryzen 9 model in the form of Ryzen 9 3950X.

Back at Computex 2019 just a few weeks ago, AMD seems to have wooed the audience at its keynote event by unveiling the new 3rd Gen Ryzen processor line-up which include the 12-core/24-thread Ryzen 9 3900X. There will also be a Radeon RX 5700 XT version available for $449 and, to top it all off, a 50th anniversary edition of the graphics card with gold accents and a higher clock speed for $499.
