Hardware enthusiasts are going bonkers over this supposed AMD Matisse refresh and according to the benchmarks we might see these new chips reach the 5GHz with slight overclocking, this might potentially become the best gaming CPUs on the market.
Both the 12 core Ryzen 9 3900XT and the 8 core Ryzen 7 3800XT would feature a 4.7GHz boost clock (although this is still speculation as we have not seen any confirmation and even if these clock speeds are accurate it doesn’t represent the final product). The AMD 9 3900XT having the same base clock as the AMD 9 3900X.
In multi-threaded tests the 3900XT catches up to Intel’s HEDT, the 18-core i9-9980XE with Intel scoring 7,516 and 3900XT scoring 7,479, but AMD still has an upper hand in multi-threaded tasks thanks to its Threadripper 3990X. The new Matisse refresh will also feature a higher clocked infinity fabric to lower the latency making a gaming experience on this CPU more smoother.
AMD Benchmarking Results
Now the most interesting part of this might be 3900XT’s single core performance. With a score of 542 it marginally beat Intel’s latest line-up of the 10th Gen chips, more specifically the i9-10900K at 5.3GHz. This feat was actually pretty impressive considering the 10900K has a approximate 500MHz higher clock that the 3900XT which is at 4.8GHz as seen below.
The other refresh also have a impressive Single Core performance, both the Ryzen 7 3800XT and the Ryzen 5 3600XT scoring 531 while Intel’s Comet Lake S Core i7-10700K scored lower at 524.
The new refresh chips also show up on the 3Dmark benchmark database, the Ryzen 9 3900XT and the Ryzen 7 3800XT scores have been leaked. The 3900XT scored a Physics score of 29,172 in Fire Strike with 12 Cores 24 Threads, 2x8GB memory sticks at 3,732MHz and a X570 Aorus Extreme Motherboard
The three CPUs we see from the 3000XT series, Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT and the Ryzen 5 3600XT all of them will feature a higher clock speeds and enhanced overclocking features.
Our sources also suggest that the boost algorithms for the new CPUs are more tightly tuned which should result in 5-10% performance improvement over existing parts. In multi-threaded tests, AMD’s Matisse Refresh Desktop CPU lineup gives Intel’s 10th Gen lineup a big beating,” wrote Wccftech. The Ryzen 9 3900XT scores 7479 points which is around 5% faster than Ryzen 9 3900X but 16% faster than the 10900K. The AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT scores 5297 which is on par with Intel’s Core i7-10700K and around 6% faster than the AMD Ryzen 7 3800X. Similarly, the 3600XT scores a total of 4007 points which is around 10% faster than the Intel Core i5-10600K and 8% faster than the Ryzen 5 3600X.Quoted from Wccftech
There had been rumours that some of the refreshed AMD 3000XT chips like the 3900XT and 3800XT can boost up to 4.8GHz and 4.7GHz respectively, but as we see from the above benchmark results the maximum turbo clocks are at 4.673GHz for the 3900XT and the 3800XT having the maximum turbo clocks at 4.623GHz, so this is a slight decrease in the turbo clock speeds than what the rumours stated previously (again, this is still speculation as we have not seen any confirmation and even if these clock speeds are accurate it doesn’t represent the final product).
The prices from a EU based retailer has also been discovered for the three chips with VAT included so we expect he MSRP(Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) to be lower. The 3600XT would retail for 271€, the 2800XT would retail for 435€ and 3900XT would retail for 545€. These refreshed CPU’s might be announced by 16 June and a release by 7 July.
These refresh CPU’s might essentially replace the current offerings at the same price point with the current lineup getting a lower MSRP from AMD.
