You were probably thinking there was already enough choice when it comes to AMD Ryzen CPUs right? Well, AMD is back at it again with its latest processors entering the market. AMD has launched their new XT line of desktop processors that consists of three models aimed at enthusiasts. These latest models are going to assist you in maximizing the speed you can get out of your PC and are just about perfect for anyone looking to get extra performance from their CPU without a motherboard upgrade!
What Are The New Ryzen 3000XT Series Processors?
“With AMD Ryzen 3000XT processors, we’re making additional optimizations to the 7nm manufacturing process to deliver industry-leading single-thread performance and more choice and flexibility for enthusiasts.” said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, client business unit.
The new enthusiast-focused series consists of three new processors:
- AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT
- AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT
- AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT
The XT branding isn't something we have seen before with AMD desktop CPUs but they are essentially trying to improve on brilliance. AMD's XT models claim to be up to 300MHz faster in max boost than the current X models and while still being based on Zen 2 architecture, they are just a tad faster.
The AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT will feature eight cores and sixteen threads that can run up to 4.7GHz in max boost or 3.9GHz out of the box. That is an extra 0.3MHz in max boost for the 3800XT, with the TDP remaining at 105W!
