AMD RYZEN 3000 SERIES PRICE LEAK?

AMD logoWe have seen some leaks of prices for the AMD Ryzen 3000 series which are expected to be announced on July 7 at Computex.  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

The R9 processors seems to be aimed at Intel’s higher end processors which will definitely pressure them into the fall of 2019 when shopping season picks up.

AMD CEO Lisa Su confirmed that the desktop CPUs will be based on 7nm, will work with existing 300 and 400-series motherboards and will be the world’s first mainstream CPUs to support PCIe 4.0 x16.

We are not sure if out MSI B350M Bazooka can handle the 135W processor but we have a powerful Corsair AX860i so we are not worried about that, we are more worried about the motherboard regulators.

NAVI

The rumor mill suggests Navi may be launched closer to Q4 2019.

  • RX 3080: GPU Navi 10, 8GB GDDR6 and a TDP of 150 W. Performance comparable to RTX 2070 or GTX 1080, price $249.
  • RX 3070: GPU Navi 12, 8GB GDDR6 and a TDP of 120 W. Performance comparable to RTX 2060 or GTX 1070, price $199.
  • RX 3060: GPU Navi 12, 8GB GDDR6 and a TDP of 75 W. Performance comparable to RTX 2050 or GTX 1060, price $129.

Later in 2019 AMD is expected to introduce new mobile processors.
