AMD Ryzen 3850X CPU to 16 kernels (32T) and 5.1GHz boost clock

We all know that AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 3000 series based on the Zen2 architecture will bring significant performance improvements to the company’s already effective design, but there is still no solid word on the specifications. But if you’re on the trail of leaks and rumors, you’ve come to the right place.

YouTuber, AdoredTV has shared a fair bit of data that he claims relates to next-generation Ryzen chips. Remember, but it’s still an unconfirmed reputation and takes it with a grains of sand as always.


Ryzen 9 3850X: Meet 16 Core Zen2 Flagship

Let’s start with the heavyweight, Ryzen 9 3850X and 3800X. Both of these parts pack 16 cores and 32 threads each, and while it previously appears to have a monstrous boost of 5.1 GHz, it decreases the power pull to limit the clock to 4.7 GHz. The 3850X has a TDW rating of 135W and the price of $ 499, while siblings are limited to 125W with a $ 449 price tag.


This is similar to Intel’s Extreme Edition K and Non -K processors, and the only difference here is that these are much cheaper. I’m not sure if these chips will compete with the i7s or i9s, and if they will actually be part of the Threadripper family or something is between, but from the price tags, i9s would be the most likely target.

Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 5 3600X: AMDs i7 and i5

Moving from the enthusiast area to the advanced space, we enter Ryzen 7 3700, 3700X and Ryzen 5 3600X and 3600. These are probably going to be i7 and i5 equivalents with an extra mass of CPU cores and this time higher clock speed as well. X versions increase up to 5 and 4.8 GHz while non-X parts are limited to 4.6 and 4.2 GHz respectively. The prices are also down to the $ 300 area for the 3700s and under $ 200 for the 3600s. For 3600, TDP is also reduced to almost half to 65 W.

Ryzen 3 3300s and Navi APUs

At the bottom of the carpet is Ryzen 3 3300s and these parts go down to the neck against Intel’s I3 chips and in contrast to that will armed with 6 cores and 12 threads watched 4.3 GHz for the X version and 4 GHz for non-X. These CPUs will have a TDP of 65 and 50W, and will be priced at $ 129 and $ 99 respectively.


At last, it’s about the APUs. According to this leak, AMD seems to have expanded its APU series and replaced Vega Cores with the still unannounced Navi GPUs. These APUs are expected to come in two flavors – a low-end 3300G with 6C / 12T clocked at a rather impressive 3.8GHz and a $ 129 price tag.

In terms of the higher offer, the Ryzen 5 3600G offers have a marginally higher core count of 8T / 16C and a boost of 4GHz. This part will be priced at $ 199 and just like the other APU is expected to land in the latter part of 2019.

Conclusion: Get Ready Intel

While I’m Still Not Sure Of This Leak, From What We Have already seen from the first two generations of the Ryzen chips, Zen2 should be a trend-set just like the first wave of Ryzen chips. AMD uses the same design as the Epyc server processors to build more complex chips from simple and use InfinityFabric to take things to the next level. Like Threadripper, these CPUs may be the best for gaming, but for creators and other professionals, they will not be a blessing.
