AMD Leaks Model Numbers of Upcoming Ryzen SKUs

AMD inadvertently put out model numbers of several Ryzen processor model numbers, before redacting the page with them. They reveal pretty much AMD's entire second wave of Ryzen 2000 series processors. To begin with, AMD will finally introduce Ryzen 3 series desktop processor SKUs based on the 12 nm "Pinnacle Ridge" silicon, with the new Ryzen 3 2100 (YD210BC6M2OFB) and the Ryzen 3 2300X (YD230XBBM4KAF). The Ryzen 3 2000 series includes quad-core parts without SMT. Since the Ryzen 3 2100 lacks integrated graphics, it end-user model numbering below the Ryzen 3 2200G. The Ryzen 3 2300X succeeds the Ryzen 3 1300X covering AMD's entry-level lineup.

The Ryzen 5 2000 series is augmented by the Ryzen 5 2500X (YD250XBBM4KAF). This likely 4-core/8-thread chip could feature higher clock speeds and L3 cache amount than the Ryzen 5 2400G, justifying its model number, despite the lack of integrated graphics. AMD's Ryzen Threadripper 2000 series are multi-chip modules of the 12 nm "Pinnacle Ridge" die, and AMD has three models in store, the Ryzen Threadripper 2900X (YD290XA8U8QAF), Ryzen Threadripper 2920X (YD292XA8UC9AF), and the top-dog Ryzen Threadripper 2950X (YD295XA8UGAAF), succeeding the TR-1900X, TR-1920X, and TR-1950X. Like the rest of the Ryzen 2000-series, the three new Threadripper chips could feature increased clocks and new features from "Zen+" to hold onto the existing price-points, and turn up the heat on Intel SKUs priced above $999, such as the 12-core i9-7920X, or even the 16-core i9-7960X.
There are also three Ryzen Mobile SKUs for ultra-portable notebooks - the Ryzen 3 2000U (YM200UC4T2OFB), the Ryzen 5 2600U (YM2600C3T4MFB), and the Ryzen 7 2700U (YM2800C3T4MFB). Even though AMD's list goes as far into the future as the 2H-2018 launch of 2nd generation Threadripper SKUs, there's no mention of a "Ryzen 7 2800X," despite Intel's rumored Core i7-8086K response to the Ryzen 7 2700X.

Pricing.
Please, AMD, don't make us pay over 140$ for that 2500X chip, and over 90$ for that 2300X.

About the 8086K rumors; its funny when you can see companies get jelous and try to oneup the other on paper and not in products (yet). With Intels lack of infinityfabric they must bleed to create a 8c16thread respone to 2700x/2800x this is pricecompetitive.

And good to see AMD not raising the pricepoint.

AMD seems to be stuck as the entry level chip in the mobile market, ie laptops.
I want to see APU's that equal their Intel counterparts in the mid to high end laptops.
If they can achieve that, there wont be a need for power hungry GPU's that drain battery life and heat your lap to the point you need a separate fan under the laptop.
