s*** is getting real!

At the top of the stack we see a couple of Ryzen 9 processors, including the Ryzen 9 3850X and Ryzen 9 3800X, priced at 760 and 684 Singapore dollars ($561 and $505), respectively. Based on previous leaks, both processors are expected to be 16-core/32-thread chips. The Ryzen 9 3850X is the fastest part, reportedly with a 4.3GHz base clock and 5.1GHz boost clock, while the Ryzen 9 3800X runs at 3.9Ghz to 4.7GHz.

The product catalog also highlights a full range of Ryzen 3000 series, including Ryzen 7, Ryzen 5, and Ryzen 3 SKUs. If once again basing specs on prior leaks, here is what we are looking at...
  • Ryzen 3 3300: 6-core/12-thread, 50W, 3.2GHz to 4GHz, $111
  • Ryzen 3 3300X: 6-core/12-thread, 3.5GHz to 4.3GHz, 65W, $145
  • Ryzen 3 3300G: 6-core-12-thread, Navi graphics, 3GHz to 3.8GHz, 65W, $145
  • Ryzen 5 3600: 8-core/16-thread, 3.6GHz to 4.4GHz, 65W, $200
  • Ryzen 5 3600X: 8-core/16-thread, 4GHz to 4.8GHz, 95W, $258
  • Ryzen 5 3600G: 8-core, 16-thread, 3.2GHz to 4GHz, Navi graphics, 95W, $224
  • Ryzen 7 3700: 12-core, 24-thread, 3.8GHz to 4.6GHz, 95W, $336
  • Ryzen 7 3700X: 12-core, 24-thread, 4.2GHz to 5GHz, 105W, $370
  • Ryzen 9 3800X: 16-core, 32-thread, 3.9GHz to 4.7GHz, 125W, $505
  • Ryzen 9 3850X: 16-core, 32-thread, 4.3GHz to 5.1GHz, 135W, $561

None of that is official and/or set in stone. As it pertains to pricing, those are all converted amounts based on the above product catalog. We do not usually see straight conversions from one territory to another, and with this being an early leak, the prices could be further inflated (previous leaks had pricing on each a bit lower). Nevertheless, this is what we have to go on at the moment.

Zen 2, otherwise known as Matisse, is expected to deliver increased power efficiency and a bump in IPC (instructions per clock) by a magnitude of 12-15 percent compared to the 12nm Zen+ Ryzen 2000 desktop CPU series that launched in mid-2018.

It is also worth noting that AMD is using a chiplet design for its Ryzen 3000 series. This consists of a smaller 7nm Zen 2 die paired with a larger I/O die (perhaps 14nm), which will introduce native support for things like PCIe 4.0.

As for when all of these processors will debut, AMD has pointed to mid-2019. Towards the end of the year, AMD will follow up its Zen 2 desktop CPU launch with mobile Zen 2 chips.

Hope these are still compatible with the AM4 socket. My understanding is that AM4 would still be good until about 2020. I'd like to see another update or two before moving from my 1600x.

AMD pushing technology forward. If it wasn't for AMD, Intel would still be pushing the same tired 4 core 8 thread CPUs as their top end consumer SKUs.

It's actually funny if you think about it. AMD has been pioneer in technology for almost ever.

First GHz CPU
First 64 bit CPU
First multicore CPU
First Unified Shader GPU
First low level Graphics API in Mantle
First to put memory directly on GPU package in HBM
First to put more than 4 CPU cores in a mainstream CPU

etc etc etc...I know I've missed some they've been doing it for a long time

I had a couple of AMD systems back in the day

Has a Athlon XP 1800, a Athlon XP 3200, a Athlon 64 4000+, a Athlon 64 X2 4200, and then had a AMD FX 8320 about 6 or 7 years ago.

Including my current PC, all but one (my previous) that I've built or purchased has been AMD. I don't see myself ever going back to Intel.

I was going to get a 3700x or 3800x but it seems like this was a paper launch based on the amount of available supply.

That's the one I want.
I guess my timing is excellent. Last Sunday I went ahead and decided I was ready to commit to building one since my oldest starts high school in a few weeks, so getting a PC build done would be a nice thing to do to finish off summer. I bought the case even though the processor was backordered, just so I'd be committed. Hit the notify thing on newegg, got in to work last Monday and they had refreshed stock, ordered it and the mobo. Went ahead and got that order placed, went and did other stuff and checked in a few hours later and saw my order was processing for shipping, and they were out of stock again already so that was fast.

Got everything by Friday night except for the noctua cooler which arrives today, but we went ahead and built it with the stock cooler Saturday. It's very nice. Once I get the decent cooler installed, hopefully tonight, I can see how the thermals hold up to see if I can start pushing a little more with it.

It turned out I had some bad RAM slots on the motherboard so I had to RMA it, which then got turned into a refund since newegg was out of stock, but then it went back in stock a day later at $20 less so woot woot. Got it put back together over the weekend and it's smooth.
