We’ve been seeing a lot of leaks regarding AMD’s upcoming Zen 2 based Ryzen 3000 desktop–class processors these days. Considering that the launch date is less than a month away, it’s not at all surprising. Yesterday, prominent Twitter leaker, TUM_APISAK shared the specs of the flagship (Ryzen 9 3800) 7nm CPU as 16 cores and 32 threads. Now, Jim from AdoredTV has joined the chorus by posting that the Ryzen 7 3700X will come with very high clocks to entice gamers away from Intel’s 9th Gen Core i7, and i9 processors.
Like APISAK, AdoredTV is one of the more reputable sources with a clean track record, and it can be said with a good deal of certainty that the Ryzen 3000 lineup with feature 6 cores (12 threads) for the entry–level Ryzen 3 parts, the 3700(X) packing 12 cores and 24 threads, and lastly the Ryzen 9 3800 enthusiast CPU coming with an insane 16C/32T configuration.
The pricing should start from $100 for the hex-core chips with the Ryzen 7 and 9 priced in the $300 and $500 segment, respectively. Once again, just in case you missed, AMD CEO, Dr. Lisa Su is expected to announce the 7nm Zen 2 processors at a pre-Computex press-conference at the end of the month.
