Expect notable bumps in clock speed

AMD Ryzen 3990XT, 3800XT and 3600XT Specs Leak

AMD Ryzen 3900XT, 3800XT and 3600XT Specs Leak

Rumour has it that AMD plans to release so-called "Matisse Refresh" CPUs, enhanced versions of AMD's existing Zen 2 powered Ryzen 3000 series processors with increased clock speeds and other improvements. Some have also claimed that these processors can handle faster memory speeds while maintaining fast 1:1 Infinity Fabric Ratios.

So far, AMD has been silent on the issue, but Videocardz has now reported on leaked clock speeds for AMD's new Ryzen 3000XT lineup: leaks which come via Chiphell. These processors are reportedly due to be announced in mid-June, which is when AMD's B550 motherboard socket is due to launch. 

So far, three Ryzen 3000XT series processors have come to light, AMD's Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT and Ryzen 7 3600XT. All of these processors will feature base and boost clock speed enhancements of 200-300MHz, delivering end-users significant performance bumps in single-threaded and multi-threaded workloads. In the case of the Ryzen 9 3900XT, boost clock speeds will reach as high as 4.8GHz. 

If these rumoured Ryzen SKUs are legitimate, these clock speed boosts will act as a counter to Intel's recently released Comet Lake series of processors. It is also possible that these new SKUs will release with the same pricing as each XT model's existing X series variant, effectively price-cutting AMD's existing Ryzen 3000 series processors. If true, this release would grant AMD more performance in the high-end while also delivering more value within the mainstream market.

Just speculating here.
If i remember correctly the 3950X uses some of the best binned chiplets.
Now that initial demand for the 3950X would have fallen off after launch and yields have improved, releasing these might just be a case of, because we can. Also it creates more price brackets that AMD can compete in etc.Quote

This is a media circus release just to get attention away from Intel only news. Intel did the same with 9900KS.

3950X was always in a tough spot. It is expensive enough that mainstream buyers don't consider it. The performance and price gap between 3950X and 3960X makes it compete in a different league. If I was building a workstation for around the money you will need for the 3950X system I would go Intel. 10920X/10940X are close enough and it gives you 48 PCI-E lanes. Which are very important for workstations. And you basically do very little rendering on CPU so that it beats Intel in rendering tasks doesn't matter.

It is possible that AMD wanted to reuse those binned chips in the market category that actually sells a lot of units.Quote

According to Amazon and Mindfactory the 3950X has actually been a hot seller given its price(Outselling all but two Intel processors for Mindfactory, making it one of the largest earning CPUs sold if you look at their revenue figures). Both platforms are matched on end PCIe bandwidth, but I guess you can buy a 3950X + mobo for like 30% less money than a 10920X + Motherboard, with 30% more cores.

Of course, this isn't too surprising given AMD are outselling Intel generally by like >500%.Quote

3950X is an amazing CPU there is no doubt about that. Even though theoretical bandwidth at the end might be the same, there are not many PCI-E Gen 4 devices. 48 PCI-E Gen 3 lanes are still much more than 20 Gen4 in the real world. Also I would rather go for Samsung 970 Pro over any current Gen 4 NVME for the same price.

On the very high and very low-end AMD has no competition. But right around that 3950X money you get much more with Intel X299.Quote

Can you practically though? Can you actually get any HEDT from Intel at all for the same platform cost? Maybe if you ignore the motherboards, but factoring motherboard cost you can get a 3950X setup with a decent motherboard for less than a 10-core 10900X with the cheapest X299 motherboard available here in the UK.

From a technical perspective Intel have some great CPUs here, but their pricing means they're getting pummelled into irrelevance on the market.Quote
