AMD Matisse Refresh SKUs coming with higher clocks, better overclocking

It is just recently we posted an update about the Matisse refresh CPUs. Earlier I mentioned two SKUs but the recent report provided better clarity. these are upcoming Ryzen 3000 series SKUs: the Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT and the Ryzen 5 3600XT.

AMD Variants for the existing chipset platforms

AMD Ryzen 4000 Series CPUs will take a while to be released. Intel Comet Lake-S series of desktop CPUs released with the new Z490 and LGA 1200 socket. So AMD needs something to hold the line until it can release the next-generation CPUs. The upcoming XT CPUs will work just fine with the 400-series and 500-series motherboards. It is not known if there will be a BIOS update for it. But surely, it is not going to be with many caveats like how it will be for AMD 400 chipsets with the Ryzen 4000 CPUs.

Speculated Ryzen 3000 XT Family SKU Specs

Cores/ThreadsBase/ Boost (GHz)L3 CacheTDP
Ryzen 5 3600X6 / 123.8 /4.432 MB95W
Ryzen 5 3600XT6 / 124.0 / 4.732 MB95W
Ryzen 7 3800X8 / 163.9 /4.532 MB105W
Ryzen 7 3800XT8 / 164.2 / 4.732 MB105W
Ryzen 9 3900X12 / 243.8 / 4.664 MB105W
Ryzen 9 3900XT12 / 244.1 / 4.864 MB105W

As you can guess from its nomenclature, these will be succeeding the Ryzen 9 3900X, Ryzen 7 3800X and the Ryzen 5 3600X respectively. While the core configurations are the same as its predecessors, the Matisse Refresh has higher base/boost clock speeds. There’s also an ‘enhanced overclock support’, which explains the new ‘XT’ numbering, referring to a higher grade over the unlocked X variants. Most likely these are higher binned CPUs.

These new XT CPUs should have the same MSRPs as its predecessors. It is not sure if AMD will be discontinuing the manufacturing of its X variants. If all things go well, these CPUs should be announced by June 16th, and be sold maybe on July 7th.

Rumours, leaked slides and benchmarks show a strong presence of Matisse refresh Ryzen 3000 CPUs to stay ahead of the Intel Comet Lake-S CPUs that's launched recently. While this is using the same Zen 2 platform, there's apparently an XT variant which alleged has a better overclocking ability and higher base/ boost clock speed.
