Leaks point to upcoming AMD Ryzen 9 3900 with 12 Cores and a 65 Watt TDP

AMD seems to be widening its Ryzen product stack. With evidence for more Navi cards mounting, it’s interesting to see a further level of segmentation happening in the processor space, too. A short while ago, we’d reported on the Ryzen 5 3500X. This is a processor (apparently confirmed by a pre-embargo review in China) with six cores and six threads that battles the Intel Core i5-9400F.

Now, AMD seems to be looking at improving the value of its upmarket offerings. Information that Planet3DNow put together, including listings on the Eurasian Economic Union list page, indicate that a new 12-core Ryzen 9 3900 is in the offing.

What does the 3900 look like? It will seemingly leverage a lower TDP to offer Ryzen 3900X’s 12 cores and 24 threads at something approaching 3800X money. The Ryzen 9 3900X and 3800X are already tightly segmented: there’s only a $100 price difference between the $499 3900X and the $399 3800X. Meanwhile, supply-side issues have inflated 3700X prices to essentially coincide with the 3800X’s launch price. This is would make the non-X 3900 a great proposition for potential 3700X buyers as well. It could also hint at improving Zen 2 yields, making it feasible for AMD to bring a 12-core product to this price segment. Core clocks look to be a bit on the low end, though. The reported base and boost clocks are a measly 3.1 GHz and 4.2 GHz respectively. We’d take these figures with a pinch of salt, though: they’re lower than typical numbers for second-gen Ryzen parts. And while part of that may be to hit the 3900’s 65W TDP, shipping clock speeds (and power) might end up being significantly higher. Let’s see how this product turns out once we get official confirmation.
