Purported details of the AMD Ryzen 9 3900 processor have been posted on Twitter. The Ryzen 3000 series chip has not been officially announced yet, but it seems this particular SKU could be a 65-W TDP variant as opposed to the Ryzen 9 3900X with its 105 W TDP. The latest chip is expected to have 12 cores and 24 threads.

It appears AMD is far from finished with the Ryzen 3000 series of desktop processors. The well-regarded data hunter Tum Apisak has managed to uncover some details that apparently pertain to a Matisse chip known as the Ryzen 9 3900. The processor has been mentioned before, with scant details revealing a 12-core, 24-thread SKU operating at a TDP of 65 W.

According to Apisak’s recent tweet, AMD’s Ryzen 9 3900 could sport a base clock of 3.1 GHz and have the ability to boost all the way up to 4.2 GHz. This wide range of clock rates would put it on a similar footing as the previously reported 16-core Ryzen 9 3950 SKU, which has been listed with a base clock of 3.3 GHz and a boost of 4.3 GHz, although it may come with a 105 W TDP.

The alleged base rate and TDP of the AMD processor would place the Ryzen 9 3900 in a similar position to Intel’s Core i9-9900, although the latter can boost to an impressive level of 5.0 GHz. However, Intel’s 8-core processor currently costs over US$400, whereas it’s likely AMD’s 12-core competitor would be priced at a similar point but offer potential customers additional cores/thread count for their money.
