Switzerland-based online shop Digitec has listed Ryzen 9 3950x for a Sept. 30, 2019 release date. It then stirred speculations that AMD is planning to wait until the very end of the month to ship the product. But, without AMD’s official confirmation on the specific release date, it is also possible that Digitec only listed Sept. 30 as a placeholder since the company announced a September retail launch.

Ryzen 9 3950x joins AMD’s lineup of 7nm FinFET processors. It is confirmed to have 16 cores and 32 threads with a base clock speed of 3.5 GHz. Fans of overclocking will be delighted to know that this CPU is unlocked and can reach a maximum boost speed of up to 4.7 GHz.

Digitec also listed Ryzen 9 3950x with price tag €999 or around $1105. But it could also be just a placeholder as Wccftech notes the processor’s MSRP is only around $749.
