Unexpectedly, AMD just confirmed the release of its Ryzen Refresh All processors. The upcoming Ryzen ‘XT’ branded processors are expected to launch in mid-year.
Launch of the Ryzen 7 3800XT and Ryzen 9 3900XT Confirmed
The serial leaker TUM_APISAK spotted the 3D mark database for the two Ryzen chips, which suggest to the existence of a full complement of Ryzen processors.
Though complete details of the chips of the state of the processor have not been revealed yet, it’s confirmed that the Ryzen 7 3800XT manages a 3DMark Fire Strike physics score of 25,135, which shows a bit improvement compared to the Ryzen 7 3800X with an average 3D mark of 24,190.
The marginal performance gain of the new chip is expected due to the disparity in rumored clock speed and the speed which has been reported within the benchmarks. Both the 3800XT are 3900XT chips are reported to be lagging a little behind the initial rumored specifications with a 100MHz clock. However, this score is not that far off what was expected from a minor clock speed bump.
The new XT-branded chips have been rumored to launch on 16 June this year. Moreover, AMD’s true next-generation architecture, AMD Zen 3, is still on track for the end of this year. Thus, it’s expected to be focusing its time and effort.
More details of the Ryzen XT processors are yet to be revealed. So, we can expect an improvement to their boost algorithms or higher peak clock speed compared to their predecessors. There’s also a chance that the upcoming chips are a simple like-for-like swap with their current Zen 2 namesakes. In this regard, the pricing, performance gain, clock speed, etc., for Ryzen 9 3900X, Ryzen 7 3800X, and Ryzen 5 3600X, are all set to be minimal at best.
There would be a pricing competition between the new chips and the existing AMD chips since the Ryzen 9 3900X is available for just $420 and the Ryzen 5 3600X is available for $205. Moreover, both the chips offer heavy discounts on these chips’ MSRPs.
