Expanding their reach across more of the market, AMD today announced the Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT, and Ryzen 5 3600XT as well as the the AMD B550 chipset availability and the new A520 chipset.

These newer XT branded chips are aimed at the enthusiast market, to give what AMD say is "elite-level performance that dominates gaming and content creation" using further optimizations to their 7nm manufacturing process. This update to 7nm, AMD say, gives an AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT around a 4% increase in single-threaded performance over previous AMD Ryzen 3000 desktop processors.

From the press release:

"At AMD, we are committed to listening closely to our customers and the enthusiast community to deliver leadership products," said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, client business unit. "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."

AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT 12/24 Up to 4.7/3.8 70 105 AM4 $499
AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT 8/16 Up to 4.7/3.9 36 105 AM4 $399
AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT 6/12 Up to 4.5/3.8 35 95 AM4


All three are expected to be available on July 7.

On the subject of cooling, AMD say the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT comes with a Wraith Spire cooler but the other two AMD suggest looking elsewhere for better cooling "with a minimum 280mm radiator or equivalent air cooling".

Today we also see the worldwide availability of the AMD B550 chipset, the first to support PCIe 4.0. AMD also announced the new A520 chipset, aimed at "everyday PC users".

Gonna need to see the comparison shootout between the 3900X, 3900XT, and 3950X on Blender, Kdenlive, and other multithread Linux workloads. I'm going to buy one of them in the next two months.

EDIT : Right now I'm leaning towards 3900XT+ . Get the extra boost speed of the 3950X and I'm only going to be rendering in 1080p video for the next year anyway, and it will cost about the same amount of money.

I wouldn't trust UserBenchmark, it says that i3 is faster in gaming than any Ryzen processor, which is a lie as many new AAA games require 6+ threads for smooth gaming. Here is the quote:

"The heavily hyped 3700X offers real world gaming performance comparable to the $80 USD entry level 4-core, 4-thread Intel Core i3-9100F."
