A Russian e-commerce web site has revealed detailed specs and costs of what appear to be AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 3000-series processor lineup. There look like at the very least seven fashions, codenamed ‘Matisse’ in line with AMD’s new artist-inspired naming scheme. Most apparently, AMD appears to have determined to undertake a brand new tier in its naming scheme, Ryzen 9. It will serve to reposition its highest-end Ryzen desktop CPUs towards Intel’s new Core i9 model, which itself was launched in response to the sturdy Ryzen 7 line. It’s potential that AMD will formally announce the brand new Ryzen 3000 sequence at CES 2019 subsequent week, the place CEO Lisa Su can be giving a keynote deal with for the primary time.
The leaked info outlines a reasonably sturdy lineup of seven CPUs – two every within the Ryzen three, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 tiers, and one Ryzen 9 mannequin.

AMD Ryzen 3000 Sequence worth, options (rumoured)
The listings on the Russian E-Katalog web site have been noticed by Tom’s . Curiously, all product tiers get extra cores, with the purported Ryzen 9 3800X main the best way with 16 cores and 32 threads. This chip might run at three.9GHz with a lift pace of four.7GHz, all in a 125W TDP. If the leaks are correct, it might be priced at $449 (roughly Rs. 31,500).
The Ryzen 7 fashions have 12 cores and 24 threads, whereas the Ryzen 5 tier now has Eight cores and 16 threads, with the entry-level Ryzen three fashions boasting of at least 6 cores and 12 threads.

Intel can be nonetheless scuffling with its long-delayed 10nm transition and has as a substitute refined its 14nm architectures a number of instances.
If AMD does announce these chips at CES 2019, it will be a surprisingly early timeframe for the 7nm Zen 2 structure to debut. The corporate has beforehand acknowledged that it will lead with 7nm Epyc server chips in the course of 2019.
