A couple of photos of an AMD Navi chip and a Ryzen 3000 series processor have been published by a Japanese website. After months of rumors and leaks, the physical products are finally available to see. The Ryzen 9 3900X is easily distinguishable with its chiplet design. The rear sides of the processors show Navi’s smaller ball grid array.

AMD has been enjoying a successful Computex 2019 due to Lisa Su’s impressive keynote address and the various product reveals that were involved. Thanks to Japanese website MyNavi, we can actually have a good look at two of the most eagerly awaited items in AMD’s upcoming hardware lineups: A Navi GPU and a Ryzen 3000 CPU.

There’s not much to glean from the photos themselves, but it is interesting to finally see the real thing after months of speculation and theorizing. The Ryzen 3000 processor shown here is the current high-end chip of AMD’s Matisse family: the Ryzen 9 3900X. This 12-core chip has a base clock of 3.8 GHz and can boost to up to 4.6 GHz. The expected price for this power? US$499.

The Navi GPU in the photo is much more mysterious. It’s likely to be the main component of the first graphics card that gets released from the Radeon RX 5000 / 5700 series that was revealed during Su’s keynote speech. The AMD CEO even showed one of the GPUs off in her hand while standing in front of a large render of the chip, but now we have a front and rear close-up view of it, too. It seems there are some exciting times ahead for the red team.
