Notice putting Navi on the die drops the clock speeds dramatically. I don't think Threadripper replacements could exceed 5Ghz ...

That would be single or even dual core though mate

I mean it does sound too good to be true for the price.... I hope the specs are in line with the rumors.

Yeah we'll just wait and see. But... we can guarantee an IPC increase as well as clock speed; So if anything, it's going to be bang on with CFLR or a touch more at least.

Well looks like you can replace those Phenom of your then SC?

If the six core APU is real... then I might just ?

I have a Kaby Lake paired with GTX1060 anyway so don't need no APU

JB FI are selling HP AMD Zen laptops with a Ryzen 5 2500U amd Vega 8 graphics for 899. Bargain compared to the crappy a series based laptops they usually sell. The Dell Zen 7 laptop is double the price and even a Zen 10 APU, probably not worth it.

Huge Leak Reveals AMD Ryzen 3000 Series Details: 16-Core Monster 2019's Killer Processor?

We're just weeks away from finding out what AMD has in store for 2019 with its desktop CPUs and the latest rumor seems to confirm previous suspicions that AMD is indeed releasing a 16-core desktop 'Ryzen 9' CPU.

The leak, spotted on Russian retailer E-Katalog, reveals seven new 3000-series Ryzen CPUs, with the top-end model being the Ryzen 9 3800X with a maximum frequency of 4.7GHz.

This is tantalizing news given we've already heard several rumors of AMD doubling its core counts on the desktop, but this is the first retailer leak showing in-depth details for the new Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 9 ranges of CPUs.

There are plenty of interesting details too, such as frequencies hitting 5GHz on the Ryzen 7 3700X, which has 12 cores and 24 threads. The two Ryzen 3 models - traditionally four-core CPUs, have been bumped up to six cores each and are the Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3300, with maximum boost frequencies of 4.3GHz and 4GHz respectively.

Similarly, the Ryzen 5 series now seems to start at eight cores with the Ryzen 5 3600X also sporting a massive 4.8GHz boost frequency, which will likely mean it could offer competition to Intel's mighty Core i9-9900K.

The Ryzen 7 series now starts at 12 cores, with the Ryzen 7 3700X also sporting that massive 5GHz boost frequency which should mean it can out-do Intel's Core i9-9900K in most benchmarks, although there's no word on price yet for any of the CPUs. Even if these specifications vary a little between now and launch, this is huge news for AMD as it points to at least two of Zen 2's expectations being fulfilled - higher frequencies and increased core counts. With a decent bump in IPC too, it looks like AMD could have a very good 2019.

The rumour continues to spread

Wonder how much the motherboards for the new zens will cost ...

If these specs are true they gotta have good VRM's

Means for people it's freaking pointless plunking series 3 zens into series 2 motherboards (if that actually works!)

Yea I wonder if 125w 16 core will require x570 or if it down clocks on older chipsets

Yes, the Zen3 might downclock to say 4.1Ghz on Zen2 chipsets to work with the limitations of those chipsets.

Unless they are six to eight core chips. in which case they should be fine. But even then AIB's are skimping on the VRM spec for high end B450/X470, so gotta do your research

MSI I believe, do have decent VRM's on some B450 boards

Efficiency will have been improved a bit with the new process and MB VRM are often not as bad as some make out provided they have some direct airflow like the stock HSF provides.

The time when you will have serious problems with a lot of MB is on a test bench using AIO with no fans moving air over the VRM. While in a case with a HSF the temperature will usually be acceptable if your not pushing for a high V OC.

 

This will make for a tempting upgrade\new toy it's just a shame that what I really need is a new GPU and nvidia is milking the market due to a lack of competition

The next desktop might be an AMD for me but AMD are dragging themselves around with the graphics department. Yes I would like 32 threads so I can go nuts with VM builds.

You can have an AMD CPU with an nVidia GPU... it's legal... they let you do it.

Yeah but past experiences with AMD GPU drivers as well.

Come on Dude... that's a silly excuse. AMD's GPU drivers are top notch. Besides which you won't need them with an AMD CPU.
