Alleged AMD Ryzen 3000 Series CPU Lineup Leaked by Russian E-Tailer

As we're coming up on CES, cameos and details (but mostly speculation) on AMD's upcoming Ryzen 3000 series are becoming more and more ubiquitous. Not the least of which is the recent listing of what seems to be AMD's line-up for that same processor series. Based on the 7 nm process, AMD's "Matisse" Ryzen 3000 series will bring about an evolutionary change on the way AMD's processors are arranged, with the "chiplet" approach allowing for an even more streamlined, scalable, cheaper design that can go all the way from a relatively basic 4-core CPU (which could belong to the Athlon range) all the way up to an (allegedly) 16-core Ryzen 9 3800X.

And thus the floodgates are open. The leaked top of the food chain for AMD's Ryzen 3000 series is the Ryzen 9 3800X, which ups the tiers on AMD's lineup to four (Ryzen 3, 5, 7 and 9), and which reportedly ships with an incredible (remember this, if true, is being supported on the AM4 platform) 16-core, 32-thread, 3.9 GHz base, 4.7 GHz boost, and 125 W TDP processor. That's a Threadripper on the consumer segment, and you can bet it will go for much, much less than the original 16-core CPU went for.
The Ryzen 7 tier sees an increase to a 12-core, 24-thread design under the new 3000 serie; the Ryzen 7 3700X and 3700 feature the same core counts, but base and boost clocks of 4.2/5.0 GHz and 3.8/4.6 GHz. If true, this means that the 12-core Ryzen 7 3700X would see the highest ever core count and core clock on an AMD Ryzen 7 CPU, by a long margin. The 105 W and 95 W TDP on eachmodel, respectively, pale in comparison to their respective core counts and frequencies.
The Ryzen 5 now becomes the baseline for AMD's 8-core CPUs, with the 3600X and 3600 enjoying a 4.0/4.8 GHz and 3.6/4.4 GHz base and boost clocks, respectively. If the leaks are correct, an increase of 400 MHz in the Boost cock for an 8-core, "Matisse" design still requires an additional 30 W TDp headroom over the (expectedly and apparently) better positioned in the frequency/power curve Ryzen 5 3600, with its tightly controlled TDP of 65 W.
Finishing up AMD's Ryzen 3000 series lineup would be the 6-core, 12-thread Ryzen 3 3300X and 3300, running at 3.5/4.3 and 3.2/4.0 GHz clocks, in a 65 W and 50 W TDp package, respectively. Hold on to your hats. If these leaks are true (and take them with metric tons of salt), this could get either very ugly, or beautiful.

bs until confirmed legit yo
honestly I feel this sorta stuff is just posted by (intel) fanboys to make sure everyone is disappointed when it turns out not to be true.

if this is true, Intel's entire lineup becomes immediately obsolete. They'll still sell chips at 50% markup because people are stupid, but whatever.

R3 3300 6/12 4 GHz for £100 or less, please. Make it happen, AMD, my body is ready.

LOOOL ... Intel lost to AMD "N.E.R.F." guns of Ryzen 1000/2000.
Now they'll get shredded.

All that power and in reality Ryzen 3 3300x overclocked to near 5GHz would be plenty for 99% of users.
Unless you'll use it to game, stream, virtualize and render at the same time.
I'm sure some people here will find them selves in that 1% :rockout:lol

A few typos. In the paragraph about the Ryzen 7 tier, series is missing an 's' at the end of the first sentence. The next two paragraphs both have a "TDp" instead of a "TDP". Just a heads up.

If this is true, their own lineup becomes obsolete also. No need for Threadrippers and all Ryzen 1xxx and 2xxx.

there is a need for some people with concrete tasks assuming its gonna be cheaper

Prices of lower product lines will adjust for these newer SKU's. Additionally don't expect the 3xxx line to be "cheap" like 1xxx or 2xxx were. Now that they're towering over Intel, they'll charge for it.

Also TR has several other reasons to exist, primarily PCIe lanes and cache. Those looking into HEDT CPU's will still consider Threadripper over Ryzen 3/5/7/9.

Drama, there are insermountable differences, ram channels ,pciex lanes then there's the higher core counts to because its clear am4 is stepping up , it's just as clear TR is going epic.

Do you know what product replacament in a company's line-up means?

No doubt. A big reason I went with the 2400G because it has a relatively high boost for a cheap-ish CPU. I’d love to upgrade to a 4C/8T at 4.5ghz+ for a similar price.

Well...This will be interesting if true. I mean we have sortta had this rumor before and it could become true. I wonder what prices will be?

8c\16t 1700 @ 3950 and I see no issues using 25% ipc and 4.7 ghz with 8c\16t.
6c\12t should be mainstream if you ask me

Holy shit, 5GHz? That would be awesome, here's hoping that rumor holds, they're using their new 7nm process right?

16 cores for $500? I wouldn't believe it if it wasn't AMD we are talking about, thanks AMD for making the CPU market interesting again!

Now hurry up and release an answer to nvidia's rtx series! We seriously need some competition in the GPU market again.

And this coming from a guy who uses almost only Nvidia GPUs, competition is good for everyone.

I'm crossing my fingers hoping this news really pan out!

Ugh, I was hanging on for 2019 shrinks, but my PC was just giving me such trouble a few weeks ago and I built a new rig. I mean, I guess Im not majorily missing out, since gaming at 4K doesnt budge a whole lot with CPU change. But still...

If you had bought AM4 you could have just plopped one of these in. That said, I wouldn't focus too much on these clocks right now. Whole lotta ifs left.

I know it’s early to confirm, but I think these clocks aren’t out of the realm of possibility. It’s a smaller node and a revised architecture featuring binnable chiplets. Intel is already hitting 5.0ghz on 8C with revised 14nm with a relatively old architecture and monolithic die with an IGP. Really, if Ryzen 2 doesn’t have a >10% IPC boost and/or a >4.5GHz clock speed, it won’t really be a success compared to Ryzen 1.5. It’s not just a die shrink, so AMD needs to bring it, IMO.

Pretty sure a 2600 will be much better already.
