Yes, Matisse refresh is happening and now we have more leaks or rather confirmation of specs as well as potential price leaks as well. For the past few weeks, we are getting a lot of rumours about the upcoming Matisse refreshed CPUs rather than the Zen 3 based Ryzen 4000 desktop processors which are supposed to launch end of this year.
AMD understood seeing Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake-S desktop processors that its own Ryzen 3000 CPUs are enough for it, provided they receive some handsome increase in clock speeds. This is exactly what they aim to do with the refreshed Matisse CPUs.
Both the Ryzen 7 3800XT and Ryzen 9 3900XT were spotted on 3DMark Fire Strike and the benchmarks were kind of confusing. While the leaked Cinebench R20 benchmarks did potentially give us a good look at how these processors perform in single-core tasks.
Now according to a recent article from Videocardz, who got the leak of these upcoming CPUs via @NotDjey, the French retailer Materiel.net accidentally published the pricing of these processors and did take it down as well, bolstering the presence of these AMD processors.
The retailer priced the Ryzen 5 3600XT for €319 ($355 or Rs.26,836), the Ryzen 7 3800XT for €459 ($510.64 or Rs.38,614) and the Ryzen 9 3900XT for €499 ($555.14 or Rs.41,979). While Videocardz confirms from their sources that the Ryzen 5 3600XT will cost around $28 more than the current Ryzen 5 3600X.
|Specs||Ryzen 5 3600XT||Ryzen 7 3800XT||Ryzen 9 3900XT|
|Base clock||4.0 GHz||4.2 GHz||4.1 GHz|
|Boost clock||4.7 GHz||4.8 GHz||4.8 GHz|
|L2 cache||3 MB||4 MB||6 MB|
|L3 cache||32 MB||36 MB||70 MB|
|TDP||95 W||105 W||105 W|
Overall the specs of all of these 6, 8 and 12 cores CPUs seems almost alike to the first leak that was posted in the Chiphell forums, only, the Ryzen 7 3800XT is likely to have 4.8 GHz boost clock speed, a 100 MHz increase to the reported 4.7 GHz.
One thing to do notice is that, the prices posted by Material.net will not be the final pricing as they have a very high pricing to other French or European sellers. Obviously, the fact is clear that these CPUs are to be launched soon and will be a handsome option for gamers and professionals who were thinking to opt for Intel for that extra high clock speed.
