AMD Radeon is now bundling two free games with its RX 5000 series graphics cards: Godfall and War of Warcraft: Shadowlands. Graphics cards such as the Radeon RX 5700 and 5700 XT, RX 5600 XT and the RX 5500 XT qualify for this offer. But the RX 5500 XT gets only a copy of Godfall. Those who purchased these GPUs between July 14th to October 3rd will get a game code from your retailer.
Accidental retailer listing indicates two things: Prices and SKUs are fixed. The product is landed and arrived at local distributors or retailers. This is the case with a Dutch retailer Centralpoint who posted the listings of the upcoming AMD RYZEN 4000 series APUs, codenamed Renoir. The retailer listed the expected inventory to be available on July 17th.
AMD has two more Matisse Refresh CPUs- the Ryzen 9 3900XT and the Ryzen 5 3600XT. The leak appeared in Amazon Italy, which pretty much confirms its stocked for retail.

The prolific leaked information hunter _rogame was able to find UL Benchmark’s 3DMark tests on the upcoming Renoir-based Ryzen 4000 series APUs. Based on the benchmarks, the upcoming APUs have strong CPU performance over its predecessor. The screenshots show the existence of three APUs- the Ryzen 7 Pro 4700G, Ryzen 5 Pro 440G and the Ryzen 3 Pro 4200G. The Renoir APUs are based on the 7nm process Zen 2 architecture manufactured by the TSMC.
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.
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.

An industry source suggests the all-new low-budget tier chipset will be available in September. It is not surprising news, to be honest. But it looks like the A-series will be pushed harder towards low-budget gaming PCs and general/ HTPC segment.

The listing of SKUs on a motherboard support list also indicates its inevitable release, most likely on June with the B550 motherboards are listed for sale.
