AMD Announces Ryzen 3000XT Processors
Three New Ryzen Desktop Models Offer Higher Boost Clocks
It’s official: there are three new members of AMD’s Zen 2 based Ryzen desktop family, with the Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT, and Ryzen 5 3600XT being announced today.
“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.”
These new CPUs offer slightly higher boost clocks, with the Ryzen 9 3900XT and Ryzen 7 3800XT matching the 4.7 GHz maximum boost of the flagship Ryzen 9 3950X.
“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 frequency and increased performance at the same TDPs of their Ryzen 3000 counterparts.”
