Specs of Next Generation Ryzen 3000 series leaked at turkish shop sites - Update: Now with real specs

Update 27.05.2019: Today AMD announced the real Ryzen 3000 specs and they are nowhere close to what was claimed below. There are no additional cores for Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7, there is just a new Ryzen 9 3900X with 12 cores. Ryzen 5 and 7 just get a small clock improvement and a larger L3 cache. The 65W TDP of the Ryzen 7 3700X is interesting. Anandtech reports:

Name Cores Base clock (GHz) Turbo Clock (GHz) TDP
Ryzen 5 3600 6 3.6 4.2 65
Ryzen 5 3600X 6 3.8 4.4 95
Ryzen 7 3700X 8 3.6 4.4 65
Ryzen 7 3800X 8 3.9 4.5 105
Ryzen 9 3900X 12 3.8 4.6 105
Correct Specs        
Based on AMD announcement        

If what is listed on these shop sites is true Ryzen 3000 will be an incredible release. But first the links:

This would result in these specifications:

Name Cores Base clock (GHz) Turbo Clock (GHz) TDP
Ryzen 3 3300 6 3.2 4.0 ?
Ryzen 3 3300X 6 3.5 4.3 ?
Ryzen 5 3600 8 3.6 4.4 ?
Ryzen 5 3600X 8 4.0 4.8 ?
Ryzen 7 3700 12 3.8 4.6 ?
Ryzen 7 3700X 12 4.2 5.0 105
Ryzen 9 3800X 16 3.9 4.7 125
leaked specs        
might be wrong        

If the data is correct this would be huge. Two reasons:

1) The core count is a jump up. So far, Ryzen 3 had 4 cores, Ryzen 5 had 6 and Ryzen 7 had 8. Now Ryzen 3 would have 6, Ryzen 5 would have 8, Ryzen 7 would even move to 12 and the Ryzen 9 3800X would move into Threadripper territory with 16 cores. It can be safely assumed that all these processors would feature double the threads. This means that if AMD manages to keep the prices close to the prices of the current generation, already because of the jump in core count these offers would be very attractive.

But 2), AMD also raised the core clock significantly. With new turbo clocks of up to 5GHz Intel’s i5-9600K, i7-9700K and i9-9900K would no longer be the only ideal option for high FPS gaming. And also many regular applications would profit a lot from the higher clocks.

I would not believe these numbers if it were a regular leak. But specs on shop sites tend to be correct, and it would be not the first time specifications of a new product get published like this by accident. Let’s hope it’s true.

Update: GTX 1650, more filters and AIO coolers

Nvidia released the GTX 1650 today and it turned out to be a bad release. The $150 card performs worse than the cheaper RX 570, it is only a small step up from a GTX 1050 Ti, as evident in the direct benchmark comparison. But it’s in our system now and you can add it to your build if you want.

Cases and cpu cooler got a bunch new filter option, both when creating builds and when browsing the parts lists. Cases can now be filtered for their fan mounting and radiator support, how many 140mm fans can be added for example. And cpu coolers, which had almost no filter option so far, can now be filtered for height, socket support, and even radiator length and cooling type.

Those last few filters might be surprising because AIO coolers were missing so far. Since air coolers were till recently always the best option for budget optimized build, AIO coolers were just not interesting for us. But with the i7-9700K and i9-9900K there are now consumer processors on the market that get hot enough to make AIO coolers relevant, they are basically being needed to allow overclocking of these processors. That’s why AIOs got added, with full compatibility checks.
