AMD Ryzen 9 3900, Ryzen 7 3700 And Ryzen 5 3500 Zen 2 CPUs Allegedly Outed By EEC
AMD took the PC enthusiast community by storm with the release of its 7nm Zen 2 Ryzen 3000 processors, and a new leak suggests that the company is looking to expand the family and fill in some gaps with respect to pricing. A Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) listing has been uncovered that makes reference to three unannounced processors: the Ryzen 9 3900, Ryzen 7 3700, Ryzen 5 3500.
The Ryzen 3900X is currently the most potent [available] Ryzen 3000 processor from AMD, and has 12 cores, 24 threads, and a 105W TDP. The new Ryzen 3900 (minus the X) is also a 12-core/24-thread part, but features a much lower 65W TDP.
Moving down the line, there's also a Ryzen 7 3700 which matches the 8-core/16-thread and 65W TDP of the Ryzen 7 3700X, and a Ryzen 5 3500 (6 cores, 12 threads) that will slot in under the Ryzen 5 3600.
Taking a look at the broader lineup, this is how the new processors would fit in:
- Ryzen 9 3950X: 12-core/24-thread, 105W, $749
- Ryzen 9 3900X: 12-core/24-thread, 105W, $499
- Ryzen 9 3900: 12-core/24-thread, 65W, $###
- Ryzen 7 3800X: 8-core/16-thread, 65W, $399
- Ryzen 7 3700X: 8-core/16-thread, 65W, $329
- Ryzen 7 3700: 8-core/16-thread, 65W, $###
- Ryzen 5 3600X: 6-core/12-thread, 65W, $249
- Ryzen 5 3600: 6-core/12-thread, 65W, $199
- Ryzen 5 3500: 6-core/12-thread, 65W, $###
At this point, we don't have any ideas on pricing, but it's not too hard to imagine how these three new processors will be positioned in the lineup in that regard. In addition, there's no word on clock speeds, but if we take a look at "X" versus "non-X" Ryzen processors, we should expect lower base and boost clock speeds across the board (which would explain the lower 65W TDP on the Ryzen 9 3900 versus the Ryzen 9 3900X).
We should also note that in addition to these new consumer-centric Ryzen 3000 processors, there's also reference to Ryzen 9 Pro 3900, Ryzen 7 Pro 3700 and Ryzen 5 Pro 3600, which would be aimed squarely at businesses like the current lineup of Ryzen Pro 2000 processors.
At this time, we'll have to take this information with a grain of salt, but it seems highly plausible that AMD could release the aforementioned processors to the retail market (or reserve them for OEM purposes) in the near future.
