 AMD Ryzen™ 9 3900XTRyzen™ 7 3800XT and Ryzen™ 5 3600XT pro­ces­sors offer hig­her boost fre­quen­ci­es for enthu­si­asts who want the best per­for­mance –

AMD B550 and A520 chip­sets expand AM4 plat­form sup­port for 3rd Gen Ryzen pro­ces­sors 

 Updated AMD Store­MI soft­ware enab­les users to com­bi­ne SSD speed with HDD capa­ci­ty 

SANTA CLARA, Calif.

 

Today, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announ­ced three new addi­ti­ons to the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ desk­top pro­ces­sor fami­ly – the AMD Ryzen™ 9 3900XT, AMD Ryzen™ 7 3800XT and AMD Ryzen™ 5 3600XT pro­ces­sors. Intro­du­cing XT bran­ding for the first time to the Ryzen™ fami­ly of pro­ces­sors, the new AMD Ryzen™ 3000XT desk­top pro­ces­sors are pur­po­se-built to maxi­mi­ze per­for­mance under any workload. Expan­ding on the award-win­ning 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ pro­ces­sor fami­ly, 3000XT seri­es desk­top pro­ces­sors are opti­mi­zed with hig­her boost fre­quen­ci­es to deli­ver eli­te-level per­for­mance that domi­na­tes gaming and con­tent crea­ti­on.

Today also marks world­wi­de avai­la­bi­li­ty of the AMD B550 chip­set, the first main­stream chip­set with sup­port for PCIe® 4.0. Avail­ab­le in a varie­ty of mother­board form fac­tors, the AMD B550 chip­set is per­fect for high-speed per­for­mance in both gaming and mul­ti­tas­king. Addi­tio­nal­ly, AMD announ­ced the A520 chip­set for socket AM4 and 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desk­top pro­ces­sors with more than 40 designs in deve­lo­p­ment. Along­side the­se new chip­set and pro­ces­sors, AMD also announ­ced the rede­si­gned Store­MI sto­rage acce­le­ra­ti­on soft­ware with a new UI and enhan­ced acce­le­ra­ti­on algo­rithm.

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.1” 

AMD Ryzen™ 3000XT Series Processors

Buil­ding upon the lega­cy estab­lis­hed by the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ pro­ces­sor fami­ly, the 3000XT Seri­es pro­ces­sors ele­va­te the world-class “Zen 2” archi­tec­tu­re with an opti­mi­zed 7nm manu­fac­tu­ring pro­cess tech­no­lo­gy to offer hig­her boost fre­quen­cy2 and incre­a­sed per­for­mance at the same TDPs of their Ryzen™ 3000 coun­ter­parts.

The AMD Ryzen™ 9 3900XT offers:

  • Up to 4% incre­a­se in sin­gle-threa­ded per­for­mance over AMD Ryzen™ 3000 desk­top pro­ces­sors3
  • Up to 40% more power effi­ci­en­cy than the com­pe­ti­ti­on4

  5. Max boost for AMD Ryzen Pro­ces­sors is the maxi­mum fre­quen­cy achiev­a­ble by a sin­gle core on the pro­ces­sor run­ning a bursty sin­gle-threa­ded workload. Max boost will vary based on several fac­tors, inclu­ding, but not limi­ted to: ther­mal pas­te; sys­tem coo­ling; mother­board design and BIOS; the latest AMD chip­set dri­ver; and the latest OS updates. GD-150
  6. Base fre­quen­cy is the appro­xi­ma­te pro­ces­sor clock speed of a typi­cal workload run­ning at the processor’s stan­dard TDP. GD-166.
  7. Though both are often mea­su­red in watts, it is important to dis­tin­guish bet­ween ther­mal and electri­cal watts. Ther­mal wat­ta­ge for pro­ces­sors is con­vey­ed via ther­mal design power (TDP). TDP is a cal­cu­la­ted value that con­veys an appro­pria­te ther­mal solu­ti­on to achie­ve the inten­ded ope­ra­ti­on of a pro­ces­sor. Electri­cal watts are not a varia­ble in the TDP cal­cu­la­ti­on. By design, electri­cal watts can vary from workload to workload and may exceed ther­mal watts. GD-109
