AMD reportedly planning to release Ryzen 7 3750X and 3850X "Mattise Refresh" processors

Rumour has it that AMD is working on a "Mattise Refresh", new additions to AMD's Ryzen 3000 series of processors which will offer users higher clock speeds than their existing counterparts. Videocardz was one of the first websites to report on these leaked Ryzen processors. 

Right now, rumours are spreading news of Ryzen 7 3850X and 3750X processors, CPUs which presumably offer users higher performance levels than AMD's existing Ryzen 7 3800X and 3700X products. With these new processors, performance increased will likely come in the form of higher core clock speeds, though other minor performance changes could be possible. 

At this time, it is unknown if these rumours are legitimate, but a recently leaked slide from Gigabyte has "Mattise and Refresh" listed under AMD's Ryzen 3000 series product line. 

AMD's Ryzen 7 3850X and 3750X processors may be a planned counter to Intel's Comet Lake series of desktop processors, offering buyers a clock speed bump and competitive pricing to help secure more sales for team AMD. This would then allow AMD to lower the pricing of existing Ryzen 7 series processors, creating an even more competitive CPU landscape for consumers. Combine this with the release of B550, and AMD has a huge opportunity to make more market share gains against Intel through AMD's combination of high-value CPUs and motherboards. 
  

AMD reportedly planning to release Ryzen 7 3750X and 3850X  

At this time, it is unknown whether or not AMD has Ryzen 7 3750X and 3850X processors in the works. Even if they do exist, it is possible that they could be OEM-only CPU SKUs, restricted to pre-built systems or custom system manufacturers. With Zen 3 being slated for a late 2020 release, why would AMD release new high-end Ryzen 3000 CPUs now?

They could have been cherry-picking good ones for this. Mainly so that Intel wouldn't have all the spotlight until Zen3.Quote

i don't understand this strategy.

Ryzen 4 is reportedly coming at the end of the year. But AMD wants to present two new cpus with slightly faster clocks while reducing prices on 3700x and 3800x.

I don't think people will pay launch prices of 3700x and 3800x for 3750x and 3850x for just a bit more core clock which buy no means will imply enough gains to justify buying these and not Ryzen 4.

If i were to buy this gen 3 ryzens, i would go for the cheapest 8 core i could get, and if 3700x goes with price cuts to get rid of them....that would be the go for.

soo....anyway, i will wait for ryzen 4 to update my system.Quote

Intel did the exact same with their 9900KS, AMD are just following suit.Quote

I understand what you're saying, but I think a refresh is perfectly reasonable given it's common practise from all three major hitters. And why not do it? AMD is trying to saturate the market with their processors. Giving those that held off on buying another option makes sense to me, even if in six months time a new CPU will replace it.

Realistically as well, Zen 3 isn't going to make a 3700X or 3750X rubbish. Those CPUs will still be better than Intel. Buying a Zen 2 CPU now is logical. If you can wait six months and want the extra performance of Zen 3, then wait. If you're not fussed and want something fast now, then buy either a cheap 3700X or a (rumoured) slightly faster, slightly pricier 3750X.Quote

I don't think AMD are trying to maintain high pricing. The fact is the 3700x isn't expensive. If anything these will just push the prices down on the lower tiered CPUs.

Any one with a brain large enough would avoid them any way, what with R3 coming this year. The article may be right, these may just boost higher for OEM rigs. That is where AMD need to launch an assault, not on us.Quote
