AMD about to refresh a few of the 3xxx series CPUs

It appears that AMD is planning a refresh of three of the 3xxx series CPUs. The new refreshed CPUs will have a T on the name. The expected models are:

  • Ryzen 9 3900XT
  • Ryzen 7 3800XT
  • Ryzen 5 3600XT

I would have preferred them to be XR’s where the R would stand for refresh… but I guess XT is supposed to make you think XTreeeeeeem! :wink: (but come on, how extreme is 100 or 200Hz boost, really?)

I think these new part numbers will be slightly more expensive than the ones they “replace.” (It’s unclear if AMD will stop selling the old ones, but certainly not right away, as they must have some stock in the channel.) I think the idea is they know they’re going to be more competitive with Intel’s latest fare, so they want to raise the prices to be higher to compensate.
