AMD Ryzen 3000 Series With 16-Core Ryzen 9 CPU Said to Launch at CES 2019

A e-commerce website has published in-depth requirements and prices of what appear to be AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 3000-series processor lineup. There seem at least 7 models, codenamed ‘Matisse’ in keeping with AMD’s brand-new artist-inspired identifying plan. Most surprisingly, AMD appears to have decided to adopt a brand-new tier in its calling scheme, Ryzen 9. This will serve to rearrange its highest-end Ryzen desktop CPUs against Intel’s brand-new Core i9 brand, which itself was launched in action to the strong Ryzen 7 line. It is possible that AMD will formally reveal the new Ryzen 3000 series at CES 2019 next week, where CEO Lisa Su will be giving a keynote address for the first time.

The leaked details describes a relatively robust lineup of 7 CPUs 2 each in the Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 tiers, and one Ryzen 9 design. The information also lines up with an earlier leakage released by AdoredTV, though at that time there were rumours of 10 models, consisting of another Ryzen 9 chip and 2 brand-new Ryzen APU models with integrated Navi graphics.

AMD Ryzen 3000 Series cost and features (rumored).
The listings on the Russian E-Katalog website were found by Tom’s Hardware. Interestingly, all product tiers get more cores, with the purported Ryzen 9 3800X leading the way with 16 cores and 32 threads. This chip could run at 3.9 GHz with a boost speed of 4.7 GHz, all in a 125W TDP. If the leaks are accurate, it might be priced at $449.

The Ryzen 7 designs have 12 cores and 24 threads, while the Ryzen 5 tier now has 8 cores and 16 threads, with the entry-level Ryzen 3 models boasting of no less than 6 cores and 12 threads. TDPs range from 50W for the purported 3.2 GHz/4GHz Ryzen 3 3300 to 105W for the 4.2 GHz/5GHz Ryzen 7 3700X. Costs might begin at $99 and go up to $329.

These chips will slot into the very same Socket AM4 motherboards as all existing Ryzen CPUs although there need to be some new chipsets to support them. AMD has dedicated to utilizing the exact same platform for several generations to make it easy for owners to update. This would likewise indicate that the business is not transitioning beyond two channels of DDR4 RAM just yet. PCIe 4.0 could be supported on brand-new motherboards, though. All Ryzen CPUs so far have likewise been unlocked to allow for easy overclocking.

Such a drastic modification would completely distress Intel’s current lineup. The company only just recently introduced its first 8-core Core i9-9900K CPU and stripped Hyper-Threading from its lower-rung offerings, so the Core i7-9700K has 8 cores and the Core i5-9600K has 6. Intel is also still dealing with its long-delayed 10nm shift and has instead refined its 14nm architectures several times.

If AMD does announce these chips at CES 2019, it would be a surprisingly early timeframe for the 7nm Zen 2 architecture to debut. The company has actually formerly stated that it would lead with 7nm Epyc server chips in the middle of 2019. The Russian listings do say 7nm, which is one of the most significant reasons to cast doubt on this leakage.
