AMD set to release Ryzen 7 3750X and Ryzen 7 3850X to take on Intel Comet Lake S i7-10700K and i9-10900K
Rumors indicate that AMD may be launching the Ryzen 7 3750X and Ryzen 7 3850X soon to tackle Intel's high-end Comet Lake S lineup including the Core i9-10900K and the Core i7 10700K. These parts will likely be faster than the eight-core, sixteen-thread Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 7 3800X. Multiple sources appear to back up the speculation: we expect to hear from AMD soon about these Matisse refresh CPUs.
A leaked product timeline from an AMD board partner indicates that "Mattise & refresh" will arrive shortly before the Ryzen 4000 series. Moreover, an ASUS general manager posted on Weibo that "Big day is coming...6/16, 7/7."
Last year, AMD announced its Navi GPUs on July 7th (7/7), a nod towards the 7nm process it is leveraging. Tipster @9550Pro went on to confirm that the ASUS manager was indeed talking about the Ryzen 7 3750X and Ryzen 7 3850X.
We still have no word on price, specs, nor availability for these parts. Earlier speculation indicated that the Ryzen 7 3750X would be an eight-core, sixteen-thread part that slots in between the Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 7 3800X, with slightly greater L3 cache than the 3700X.
While we haven't heard anything at all about the Ryzen 7 3850X, we wouldn't rule out the possibility that it is a 12-core part, delivering ballpark Ryzen 9 3900X performance for less. We will update you as soon as we learn more.
