AMD recently launched three new processors as part of the Ryzen 3000 family. The new [processors will offer higher frequencies and add to the lineup of 3000-series processors the brand already offers. The processors will start being available through many regions starting July 7, 2020.

The three new processors are the AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT, the AMD Ruzen 7 3800X, and the AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT. The new processors focus on boosting the turbo frequency by 100-200 MHz for the same power. However, despite the boost, the new processors consume the same power. As per the brand, this is due to the usage of a more optimized 7nm manufacturing process.

The top new processor is the Ryzen 9 3900XT which offers +100 MHz turbo over the 3900X, for the same official price as the 3900X. The 3800XT offers +200 MHz on single core turbo over the 3800X for the same price. The final new processor is the 3600XT, with +100 MHz on the turbo frequency, again for the same price over the 3600X.

In each three cases, the XT processors give slightly better frequency than the X units, so we should expect to see an official permanent price drop on the X processors in order to keep everything in line.

These new processors will be supported in any motherboard that already supports Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 hardware (the cost in BIOS space to add a CPU of the same family is negligible). Retail for these parts is expected on July 7th, 2020. Which happens to be 7/7, a year to the day that AMD launched 7nm Zen 2.
