AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X Processor - Power Consumption Tests

The Ryzen Threadripper 3000 series makes use of a chiplet design rather than a single monolithic die. All dies are connected through the infinity fabric interconnect & is used to thermally manage the load on different dies. The 3rd Gen Threadrippers also make use of a 7nm process node which leads to energy savings through higher efficiency.

The AMD 3rd Gen Ryzen Threadripper processors feature a TDP of 280W. Overclocking would lead to higher power consumption than the stock clocks & we have listed our power numbers for both in the chart below.
