AMD-hired Agency in South Korea Teases AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, Ryzen 5 3600X

Anyone looking for an update to their CPU that didn't quite jump on the Coffee Lake/Zen/Zen+ bandwagon is likely paying close attention to AMD's upcoming Zen 2 CPUs. The upcoming AMD processors will finally leave the company ahead of Intel in terms of manufacturing process for the first time in years, and will bring about AMD's new vision for HCC desktop processors in a chiplet design. With the release of Zen 2 set for 2019 (probably around Computex), and its launch being of such importance to AMD, it isn't that surprising that some promotions/teases are already popping up.

The tease in question was posted by an AMD-contracted Sales agency in South Korea, which launched a campaign inviting users to guess Cinebench scores for upcoming AMD processors: namely, the Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 5 3600X - thus confirming the nomenclature for AMD's upcoming CPUs. The contest finishes on December 14th, and is basically asking users to take a gander on scores for unreleased CPUs - promising prizes of said CPUs when they launch.

If the contest ends on December 14th, I wonder when they will reveal the winner? Seems encouraging from a product point of view, that they want people guessing. It would have to be somewhat of a surprise, right?

The poster :

[Gaming, Office, Home, every computer is Ryzen]
After releasing the 7nm Ryzen in 2019, we released the time capsule to give the Ryzen7 3700X (tentative name) to the closest predictor of performance.

Talks about uses for those chips (home / gaming / office)


2019 7nm ready to launch to the public.

Then talks about the prediction score and "winner" will be invite to the presentation

I think it needs to hit the single-core and multi-core of both processors.

Korean isnt my strong suit, but at least you can kinda understand what is there.

well, if rumours going out to be true (3700X packed with 12C/24T) then I would happily to dump my current CPU to get the 3900X BE (it reminds me of my old phenom ii X4 955 BE (DENEB) :D )

Suspiciously early for this type of marketing... Maybe Ryzen series 3000 are to launch in Q1/2019 after all?

I'm thinking CES or shortly after, especially with Lisa Su giving a keynote.

If so that'll be the greatest birthday present from AMD ever.

If true this may be AMD striking while the Intel is hotter and slower.

Think the 3900X BE was pretty fake, The leak of a 3850X seems very possible, with 16c/32t and 4.3ghz base clock and a 5ghz turbo I'd be very happy with it.

1-2x core 5.1 ghz is actually MORE than enough, a game loop runs on one core and the others do other work but Always wait on one thread pretty much, thus one thread needs frequency and the rest really doesn't.
Rest is up to memory latencies, cache, ipc and so on. :)

Yes, Lets hope the 13-17% IPC increases were correct, if so this could be a VERY VERY dangerous CPU,

Also from the previous leak, the one that interests me is the low end desktop ones, 6c/12t @ 3.2Ghz and 4.0Ghz turbo for $100.... That'll rival a lot of our i5's we have in the office.

I seriously doubt it but if they do, guess I'll open my wallet for them.

3600X: 8c / 16 t @ 4.5 GHz for <£200 (this is my CPU budget) yes please.

Seems like they are pushing for a CES announcement, with actual availability a fair bit later.

The deadline for the guesses are December, it's not hard to guess that something will come out during CES at least the "official" cinebench scores from AMD.
As for people saying Computex for the tease which is in June, people would've forgot about this "guess the cinebench" event already since it's too far out.
I am pretty confident that AMD will release preliminary Zen 2 stuff including the cinebench scores on CES, and Computex will likely be the Zen 2 official launch plus Navi teases.
Zen 2 launch is big for AMD, and if half of the leaks were true, this is where AMD overtakes Intel in everything, from single thread performance to multithread performance as well as price.
And AMD will continue to hammer Intel until Intel's 10nm stuff to come out in Q4 2019 or H1 2020.

Yeah that's not happening, hence the 7nm PR blitz. Also if anything, this makes 10c Comet Lake rumors even more believable.

This Cinebench contest clearly suggest we'll see shitloads of core increase with 7nm Zen. I'd bet 8c/16t on 3600x and 10c/20t on 3700x at least . It wouldn't surprise me even if we get 12c/24t on 3700x and 16c/32t on 3800x. They have plenty of free space on 7nm die. Add 7 % IPC and frequency increase and you get a 9900K killer, especially if you price it under $500. Much more rendering, encoding and computing power with competitive gaming performance. What's not to like?. Intel will continue to lose it's market share until it moves to 10 nm and 7nm die.

I was close to jumping back to Intel (can get a 9900k for £499) but the draw of Zen 2 is strong. And I can keep my mobo. o_O

While true, it's conditional on whether or not Ryzen 3 does end up getting up to 16c / 32t (which is still uncertain, atm) in the sense that your mobo may be inadequate, from a VRM perspective, to support the higher core offerings. Unless ofc you're not interested in said offerings, in which case, up to an 8c / 16t Zen 2 processor will most likelly work quite nicely with your current board.

2600cb for the Ryzen 7, 2100cb for the Ryzen 5. That's just my estimates.

Ryzen 3 is 6/12, 5 is 8/16, 7 is 1224, and 9 is 16/32. That of course, is assuming that AMD bumps up the core counts again. Physically, the AM4 socket can handle up to 32 cores if the TR4 socket can handle up to 64 cores (half the cores). While Intel, from what I heard from an engineer, they can technically add as many cores as they want, but haha they will lose once Ryzen 3000 is out :) btw this is for the core count race, and actually I think Ryzen 3000 may even top Intel's 9th gen IPC (which is the same as the 6th, 7th, and 8th gen IPCs)!

funny, everybody thought amd would behave like intel and right now amd is proving it will not act like intel, amd released recently 12nm desktop cpus and people are wondering why amd will be releasing their 7nm so fast because Intel was never like that, intel used to launch something with 5% and then after 2 years launch something else with 5% more ipc and it kept going, I'm grateful amd is thinking on releasing ryzen 2 this fast, amd need this and we need this more than amd to show intel their days of milking in 5% bullshit in 2 in 2 years are counted.

It's called market share grab. If AMD would pause at 12 nm die data centers wouldn't care enough to drop Xeon for Epyc. With 7nm Epyc's much better power efficiency, more cores, lower latency and lower price, data centers will be hard pressed to not consider switching to AMD camp. 7 nm Ryzen is just a byproduct of that development. I'll happily accept it though :)

I remember the times when amd was ahead of Intel.especially 1 core 1 ghz days. Make no mistake those days AMD itself was charging premium. Neither companies are innocent. Competition is good for us consumers as they have to improve and make prices competitive.
