AMD launches its Ryzen 9 3900 and Ryzen 5 3500X processors

AMD has officially revealed two new entries into their Ryzen 3rd Generation CPU lineup, both of which are designed for OEM systems and one of which is restricted to the Chinese market.  

The Ryzen 9 3900 will release to OEMs as a low-power alternative to the Ryzen 9 3900X, offering users lower clock speeds and lower power/cooling requirements. These changes will allow the Ryzen 9 3900 to be more easily integrated into OEM systems. The Ryzen 5 3500X is basically a lower clocked Ryzen 5 3600 with no hyperthreading/SMT. 

OEM only parts are not new for AMD, with the company's last-generation Ryzen 3 2300X and Ryzen 5 2500X filling similar niches as the Ryzen 5 3500X, albeit with older core designs and core counts. These chip designs enable OEM system builders to create cheaper systems while allowing AMD to sell chips that are otherwise unsuitable for their consumer-grade SKUs. 

Recent rumours have also suggested that a Ryzen 5 3500 processor is in the works, but AMD has not revealed any information about this product.

its good to see that there is demand for these. The more areas AMD can infiltrate the more competitive the market becomes. It takes a lot for OEM's to make a change like moving to AMD and their confidence in Intel must really be hanging by a string atmQuote

The 3900X is a ridiculously good looking CPU. No one could have expected a 12c $500 CPU that could boost to 4.6Ghz (roughly) in 2019 when just a few years ago $500 was needed for a 6c/12t CPU of similar clock speeds and IPC.Quote

That 3900 would be a nice option for those of us that like to overclock and save a few €.Quote

It would also be a great option for small form factor systems.Quote
