The first third-generation Ryzen Threadripper processors from AMD will hit the market within a week or two but the flagship will follow at a later date. So far, AMD hasn't shared official information about its Ryzen Threadripper 3990X but now there's a leak from MSI.

The motherboard maker accidentally revealed that the Threadripper flagship will offer a massive 64 cores and 128 threads!
But for those wondering that maybe AMD might have canceled the Threadripper 3990X 64 core part and that's the reason they didn't show it, well we have good news for you guys. MSI posted their TRX40 Creator motherboard introductory video yesterday and in that video, MSI leaked out the 64 core and 128 thread chip. The video which has now been taken down by MSI showed the TRX40 Creator and a Threadripper CPU performing some intensive workloads but MSI decided to open the task manager for us too. In the task manager, we can spot 8 vertical and 16 horizontal tiles. This rounds up to a total of 128 threads.
The Ryzen Threadripper 3990X is expected in January. Expect it to be very pricey. WCCF Tech speculates it could be as much as $2,999 for this chip.
