AMD has announced a newly refreshed lineup of the existing Ryzen series. The new series is called Ryzen 3000XT and the highlight of the lineup is better single-threaded performance. The new lineup will be available from July 7 onwards, which is also the anniversary for Zen 2.
|Model||Cores/Threads||Boost/Base Frequency||Total Cache||TDP||Price|
|Ryzen 9 3900XT||12/24||Up to 4.7GHz/3.8GHz||70MiB||105W||$499|
|Ryzen 7 3800XT||8/16||Up to 4.7GHz/3.9GHz||36MiB||105W||$399|
|Ryzen 5 3600XT||6/12||Up to 4.5GHz/3.8GHz||35MiB||95W||$249|
Coming to the Ryzen 3000XT series, we have the refreshed versions of the existing X lineup. The 3000XT lineup includes Ryzen 5 3600X, Ryzen 7 3800XT, and Ryzen 9 3900XT. The new lineup is based on the new 7nm process technology which makes them more efficient and provides slightly higher performance over the base variants. The 3600XT and 3900XT get 100MHz boost frequency while the 3800XT gains 200MHz, compared to the X models.
Ryzen usually struggles when single-threaded performance is concerned. Hence we are getting up to 4 percent single-threaded performance improvements over the previous lineup. Since Intel is usually known for a better single thread. This is AMD’s response to Intel. With these minimal changes in the lineup, AMD is confident and claims that they’re enough to take the coveted single-thread performance crown away from Intel.
The thing to be noted is that Ryzen has priced all the three models at the same price as what the X models did when they launched last year. However, we might get an official price cut on the X models soon. On the other hand, only the base Ryzen 5 36000XT gets the free Wraith Spire cooler. While you will have to accompany your Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 9 with your own cooling system. AMD recommends “a minimum 280mm radiator or equivalent air cooling.”
