AMD Introduced Three New Ryzen Processors in 3000 Series
AMD announced three new additions to the 3rd Gen Ryzen desktop processor family. The Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT and Ryzen 5 3600XT processors introducing XT branding for the first time to the family of processors. The new desktop processors are purpose-built to maximize performance under any workload. Expanding on the 3rd Gen Ryzen processor family, 3000XT series desktop processors are optimized with higher boost frequencies.
AMD also announced availability of the AMD B550 chipset, the first mainstream chipset with support for PCIe 4.0. Available in a variety of motherboard form factors, the B550 chipset is perfect for high-speed performance in both gaming and multitasking. Additionally, AMD announced the A520 chipset for socket AM4 and 3rd Gen Ryzen processors with more than 40 designs in development. Alongside these new chipset and processors, AMD also announced the redesigned StoreMI storage acceleration software with a new UI and enhanced acceleration algorithm.
“At AMD, we are committed to listening closely to our customers and the enthusiast community to deliver leadership products,” said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, client business unit. “With AMD Ryzen 3000XT processors, we’re making additional optimizations to the 7nm manufacturing process to deliver industry leading single-thread performance and more choice and flexibility for enthusiasts.”
Building upon the legacy established by the 3rd Gen Ryzen family, the 3000XT Series processors elevate the Zen 2 architecture with an optimized 7nm manufacturing process technology to offer higher boost frequency and increased performance at the same TDPs of their Ryzen 3000 counterparts. New models have 6 to 12 phisical cores with 12 to 24 threads, 35 to 70 MB cache, 3.8 and 3.9 GHz base frequency that can be bosted to 4.5 and 4.7 GHz, and 95 to 105 W TDP. They will be available in the first half of July at prices ranging from $249 to $499.
