While all PC enthusiasts know that the AMD Ryzen 3000 series is coming, AMD hasn’t released any specifications or information on the processors. Russian price tracking website e-Katalog may have just leaked the upcoming statistics for each chip. The codenamed Matisse will have four separate processors with each one having an ‘X’ edition. The amount of cores are up with the base 3300 featuring six cores and twelve threads. Known as the Ryzen 3 Matisse, the 3300 and 3300X will feature a 3.2Ghz/3.5Ghz clockspeed. These stats should all be taken with a grain of salt, but judging by progression these stats make sense.
The website isn’t listing the rumored top model 3850X, which can hit 5.1Ghz at its top clock. This may get released further down the road, but will be the direct competitor to Intel’s i9-9900K at a much more discounted rate. e-Katalog lists the Ryzen 5 Matisse 3600 and 3600X as 8core and 16 thread chips at 3.6Ghz/4Ghz, the Ryzen 7 Matisse 3700 and 3700X with 12 cores and 24 threads hitting 3.8Ghz/4.2Ghz, and finally the Ryzen 9 Matisse 3800X with 16 cores and 32 threads hitting 3.9Ghz. These processors will remain on the AM4 chipset so they should be physically compatible with previous motherboards. The jump from the first gen Ryzen chipsets to the second did require a firmware update for the motherboards.
