Two processors that we've been hearing whispers about for the past few weeks have finally been made official. AMD today confirmed the release of both the Ryzen 9 3900 and the Ryzen 5 3500X. Both processors are aimed at AMD's OEM partners and will only be made available in pre-built systems, so don't expect to easily find them from your favorite retailer – at least not initially. As we previously covered when the Ryzen 9 3900 originally leaked, it is still a 7nm Zen 2-based processor with the same 12-core/24-thread configuration as the Ryzen 9 3900X. However, whereas the Ryzen 9 3900X has base and boost clocks of 3.8GHz and 4.6GHz respectively, the Ryzen 9 3900 is scaled back dramatically... Read more...
Evidence pointing towards a Ryzen 5 3500X addition to AMD's third-generation Ryzen lineup is stacking up. The latest clue is a validated CPU-Z entry. Submitted by an anonymous user, the Ryzen 5 3500X listing on CPU-Z seemingly provides a glimpse of how the upcoming processor will fare compared to Intel's 9th generation Core i5-9400F. As previously rumored and now seemingly confirmed in the CPU-Z listing, the Ryzen 5 3500X is a 6-core processor without simultaneous multi-threading (SMT) support. It's said to have a 3.6GHz base clock and 4.1GHz boost clock, 32MB of L3 cache, and a 65W TDP, with a Wraith Stealth air cooler included with the chip. The new leak was spotted by a Chinese media outlet,... Read more...
AMD might be planning to roll out more affordable third-generation Ryzen processors in the very near future. According to the latest round of leaks, there are at least two lower end chips in the wings, including the Ryzen 5 3500X and Ryzen 5 3500. Neither of these would qualify as entry-level, but both would presumably be cheaper than every current third-generation Ryzen processor. We will get to the leaks in a moment, but first let's have a look at AMD's current third-gen Ryzen stack. Here are the processors that have been released (or announced) to date, with each one's launch pricing... Ryzen 9 3950X: 16 cores / 32 threads, 3.5GHz to 4.7GHz, 64MB L3 cache, 105W, $749 Ryzen 9 3900X: 12 cores... Read more...
