It looks like Ryzen 3000 will be EPYC!

Ryzen 3000 Series CPU Specifications Leak

A YouTuber known as AdoredTV has released a variety of specifications for AMD's upcoming Ryzen 3000 series of processors, revealing impressive specs for both AMD's low-end and high-end product lineups. 

For starters, AdoredTV alleges that AMD will be using the same multi-die technology as their second generation EPYC CPUs, which will allow them to utilise an affordable 14nm I/O die in conjunction with 7nm CPU and GPU cores. This design move will enable AMD to employ the same Zen 2 cores as their upcoming EPYC processors, delivering AMD economies of scale to provide better product bins for consumers and low unit pricing.

On the clock speed front, AMD Ryzen 3000 series processors will boast impressive performance, with their Ryzen 9 3850 boosting all the way up to 5.1GHz, albeit with a 135W TDP. Not bad for a sixteen core processor. 

Moving onto APUs, AMD will presumably release Navi/Zen 2 based APUs in Q3 of next year, delivering up to eight CPU cores and up to 20 Navi compute units. Today's Ryzen+Vega series APUs can be very constrained by memory bandwidth. Hopefully, AMD has worked to help address this limitation with their upcoming designs.  

Looking at these leaks, the first thing that comes to mind is how overly optimistic it all sounds, promising a 6-core processor with a 50W TDP and the launch of the majority of the product lineup at CES, not Computex like older rumours have suggested. AMD has stated many times that they are focusing on ROME (7nm/Zen 2 EPYC) for now, making a CES launch window seem too soon for a consumer product reveal.  

The promise of 5GHz+ clock speeds in conjunction with the IPC boosts that Zen 2 will offer also come off as being a little too good to be true, though I guess we will have to wait and see if these leaks prove accurate.

Ryzen 3000 series CPU Specifications Leak  

With Ryzen 3000 series CPUs allegedly shipping with TDPs of up to 135W, it is likely that these processors will be underclocked or will otherwise struggle on older 300-series or 400-series motherboards, despite AMD's promise to offer forward-compatibility through BIOS updates.

Will be very interesting if true, especially at those prices.

If true, AMD are really going to gain market share faster than they are now.Quote

Well if they are already outselling Intel 2 to 1 on some sites it wont take long.Quote

6c/12t @ 50W @ $99 in a month? I really can't see it happening.
If AMD do offer 2 die configs for Ryzen3000 I think they'll still stick with one Core die for 8C or lower to keep latency, costs and power consumption down. With 7nm being such a fresh node we wouldn't expect it to launch with the weakest bins still being 75%+ enabled(6c), that or these are proposed to be two dies with one CCX enabled in either and one core disabled in either, but that's setup to play havoc with non NUMA aware software, especially games.
Personally I think 4c/8t will be the new Ryzen3 tier, with 6c/12th being Ryzen 5, 8c/16t being Ryzen 7, with 12c/24t and 16c/32t being Ryzen 9 or 7X or something.
Ryzen 3/5/7 will be a Core die + IO die, Ryzen 9 will be 2 Core dies + IO die, while Ryzen G will be Core + GPU + IO chips, with the GPU basically being an RX460 Navi equivalent.Quote

I can't see them selling the 3850X for 499. That is too good to be true if it does hit 5.1.Quote

3850X shall be mine Quote
