We have seen a big bang of sorts in recent weeks with the arrival of Intel’s latest 10th gen processors. Exemplifying how competition in the PC consumer and enthusiast market is alive and well, we have also heard rumblings of a potential refresh from AMD. To date, there has not been an official statement from AMD, but that could be coming very soon. Coincidentally, during all of the recent events, one of AMD’s current top-of-the-line chips, the 12C/24T 3900X, had a major price drop. This often is a common tactic around a new or upcoming release or refresh.

Rumors to Date

The earliest rumors suggested a naming convention of 3850X and 3750X . Not too long after that, other names such as Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT, and Ryzen 5 3600XT surfaced. Shortly after that, Chinese website Chiphell spotted potential specs for these still officially unannounced processors. At the top, the 3900XT was rumored to have an increased base clock of 4.1 GHz (giving it a 300 MHz increase over the current base clock of the 3900X) and a boost clock of 4.8 GHz. The 3800XT’s base/boost clock was listed as 4.2 GHz/4.7 GHz, while the 3600XT’s base/boost clock was 4.0 GHz/4.7 GHz. A Cinebench R20 score for the 3900XT was also spotted, showing it edging out the Intel Core i9-10900KF in a single-core benchmark.

Potential Pricing?

Well, over the weekend, we got closer to seeing actual prices. French retailer briefly listed the three processors, along with some specs. All three processors are listed as “no longer available for sale,” but their prices remain. The Ryzen 9 3900XT is priced at 499 €, the Ryzen 7 3800XT at 459 € 90, and the Ryzen 5 3600XT at 319€. All three also have the same previously rumored base clocks.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
