Scottish leaker Jim (AdoredTV) has shared new information regarding two of AMD’s top-of-the-line Ryzen 3000 series processors. These are believed to be the Ryzen 7 3700/X and Ryzen 9 3850/X, which will flaunt 12 and 16 cores, respectively.

The 12-core CPU’s base clock is still a mystery, but its boost clock is supposedly 5 GHz. The 16-core variant is said to have a base clock of 3.2 GHz and boost clock of 4.3 GHz. It’s listed with a Cinebench R15 benchmark score of 4,278, placing it just under an Intel i9 7960X (4.8 GHz, 4,288).

If the 16 core chip’s overclocking results are anything to go by then we may be able to see these 12 core Ryzens overclock to 4.2 GHz+ on all cores. There’s very little doubt that these 12 cores will be extremely popular among enthusiasts, due to their exceedingly high clocks and core counts. We could be looking at the new jack of all trades chip, with decent gaming performance and incredible multi-core brute force.
