AMD unveiled its Ryzen 3000 series of CPUs at its Computex 2019 keynote. These third generation processors, manufactured using the 7nm process node, are based on AMD’s Zen 2 core architecture. AMD also expanded its Ryzen lineup till Ryzen 9 for its high-performance CPUs.

The processors that have been officially unveiled at Computex this year have a maximum core count of 12, in the $499 Ryzen 9 3900X. This is the flagship CPU of the Ryzen 3000 series and uses two Zen 2 dies. The other processors launched feature 8 cores and 16 threads.

AMD Keynote at Computex 2019

Now, in an interview at Computex, Steve Burke from Gamers Nexus has confirmed that AMD is working on a 16-core Ryzen 3000 CPU. Burke said that a 16-core Ryzen 3000 does exist and how AMD accidentally confirmed it to him. Now, what actually led Burke to believe that a 16-core Ryzen 3000 chip is in the making, is a conversation he had with AMD. According to Burke, during the conversation, the AMD executive said that “the platform started with a quad core and that we have quadrupled it to 12 cores”. Well, obviously quadruple of a quad is 16, not 12. This led him to believe that AMD might actually be prepping for a 16-core Ryzen 3000.

You can see it yourself in the video uploaded by KitGuruTech:

We know that the reasoning and the evidence is a bit sketchy and doesn’t really confirm the speculation, but we can never rule out anything. We would suggest taking this report with a pinch of salt. But still, until we get any evidence disproving this or until AMD confirms otherwise, we would like to believe that a 16-core Ryzen 3000 processor is actually in the works, but then again, don’t quote us on that.
