AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT Clock Speeds And Performance Revealed In Benchmark Leak
The Matisse Refresh (Zen 2) family of processors consists of the Ryzen 5 3600XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT, and Ryzen 9 3900XT. All three [allegedly] have higher base/boost clocks than the processors that they are replacing, and new 3DMark listings have reported the clock speeds of the latter two processors.
The 3DMark listings shows that the Ryzen 7 3800XT with a base clock of 3.9GHz and a boost clock of 4.7GHz, while the Ryzen 9 3900XT is showing a base cock of 3.8GHz and a boost clock of 4.7GHz. Interestingly, the base clocks for both processors reported here are identical to the Ryzen 7 3800X and Ryzen 9 3900X respectively. Either the previous reporting on 4.2GHz and 4.1GHz base clocks for the two chips were inaccurate, or 3DMark is simply misreporting the clock speeds (which is quite possible). In other words, we’ll have to take these entries with a big dose of salt.
No matter what the discrepancies may be when it comes to clock speeds, there's no doubt that performance has increased for the two new processors. In 3DMark Fire Strike, the Ryzen 7 3800XT captured a physics score of 25,135 while the Ryzen 9 3900XT hit 29,172.
Other specifications from the 3DMark results also confirm our previous reporting, including the 8-core/16-thread and 12-core/24-thread configurations for the Ryzen 7 3800XT and Ryzen 9 3900XT. Given the slight upticks in clock speeds, we may see an increase in TDP as well for the new processors, but that is just speculation on our part
With that being said, AMD is rumored to announced the new Ryzen 5 3600XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT, and Ryzen 9 3900XT on June 16th, with an official retail launch coming in early July. All three processors are rumored to retain the same pricing as their Ryzen 5 3600X, Ryzen 7 3800X, and Ryzen 9 3900X counterparts.
