CES 2019 is about to kick in, and it seems that the show has started already, as we have witnessed some of the launches and some companies have teased new products in the upcoming event. And now we come to know about the upcoming AMD Ryzen 3000 Series that will be launched in the CES 2019 from a Russian based website, which mentioned the specs and other details of the upcoming AMD Ryzen 3000 Series processor chips. This hints the official launch of the Ryzen 3000 Series by AMD next week at the CES 2019 event.
AMD may launch the new Ryzen 3000 series at CES 2019 and may adopt a new name for the series called Ryzen 9, which will be the upgraded series of Ryzen 7 lineup, which launched earlier to take on Intel Core i9 series. Talking about the details that were mentioned on the website about the new lineup of AMD processor. There will be at least seven models two each in the Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 tiers, and one Ryzen 9 model, which will be launched under the AMD Ryzen 3000 series, codenamed ‘Matisse’, which is AMD’s artist-inspired naming scheme.
AMD Ryzen 3000 Specifications –
The AMD Ryzen 3000 Specifications are not confirmed yet. According to Tom’s Hardware, who spotted the list on the Russian website. The AMD Ryzen 7 models sport 12 cores and 24 threads, while the Ryzen 5 tier will be offering 8 cores and 16 threads, whereas, the entry-level model Ryzen 3 rumoured to feature 6 cores and 12 threads. TDPs range from 50W for the purported 3.2GHz/4GHz Ryzen 3 3300 to 105W for the 4.2GHz/5GHz Ryzen 7 3700X. According to the website, the prices could start at $99 (which is around Rs. 6,950) and go up to $329 (which is around Rs. 23,100).
Also, the leak source website also mentioned the 7nm Zen 2 architecture in the new processors, but AMD previously made a statement that it would lead with 7nm Epyc server chips in the middle of 2019, and also this is pretty early for the 7nm Zen 2 architecture to debut, which makes the listing source doubtful, and the leak could be fake.
If AMD announces the new chips at CES 2019 and the above-mentioned specification are true, the new AMD Ryzen 3000 Series would be giving a tough competition to the Intel chipsets. The recently launched Core i9-9900K CPU processor comes with 8-core and stripped Hyper-Threading from its lower-rung offerings, and the new AMD series is already a winner, only if the leaks are true. And rest we will see in next week when AMD will officially launch the new lineup.
