The first signs of the potential of AMD's Matisse Refresh Ryzen 3000 XT series have popped up online, suggesting the CPUs are set to pack quite a performance punch. The Matisse Refresh chips are an update on the existing 3000 series spread, according to details leaked by a GIGABYTE roadmap slide that leaked last week.
This fresh leak comes from a post of the Chiphell forums, where a user has purportedly shared the clock speeds for three Ryzen 3000 XT chips - Ryzen 9 3900 XT, Ryzen 3800 XT, and Ryzen 5 3600 XT. The details are a little sparse other than the speeds, but it’s more than we’ve seen to date.
The Ryzen 9 3900 XT reportedly has a base clock speed of 4.1 GHz, and a boost clock speed of 4.8 MHz. The speeds would represent a 300 MHz and 200 MHz on the 3900 XT's X series counterpart.
The Ryzen 7 3800 XT reportedly hits a base clock speed of 4.2 GHz allied to a boost clock speed of 4.7 GHz. Much like the 3900 XT, this represents a significant improvement on the equivalent X series model, with a 300 MHz and a 200 MHz jump.
Finally, we have the Ryzen 5 3600 XT with a base clock speed of 4.0 GHz, jumping to 4.7 GHz for the boost clock. Improvements on the X series model are 200 MHz and 300 MHz.
Core counts are expected to remain the same on all XT SKUs as the X series models. The core counts aren't 100% confirmed, so don’t take this as gospel quite yet. Twelve cores, twenty-four threads for the Ryzen 3900 XT, eight cores, 16 threads for the Ryzen 7 3800 XT, and six cores, twelve threads for the Ryzen 5 3600 XT.
As always, we'd recommend taking all this with a pinch of salt ahead of an official announcement from AMD, which is expected on June 16th, with a launch date and availability at retailers from July 7th.
