AMD Ryzen 3000 Refresh Prices Leak Out: 3600XT, 3800XT & 3900XT Specs

The prices of AMD’s upcoming Matisse refresh have surfaced. It looks like the existing Matisse parts are going to get an official price cut while the newer XT variants will launch at their original MSRPs:

CPU C/T Base Boost TDP MSRP Market Price
Ryzen 9 3950X  16C/32T  3.5 GHz  4.7 GHz  105W  699 USD $699.99
Ryzen 9 3900XT  12C/24T  3.8 GHz  4.7 GHz  105W  499 USD ?
Ryzen 9 3900X  12C/24T  3.8 GHz  4.6 GHz  105W  449 USD $419.99
Ryzen 7 3800XT  8C/16T  3.9 GHz  4.7 GHz  105W  399 USD ?
Ryzen 7 3800X  8C/16T  3.9 GHz  4.5 GHz  105W  359 USD $328.99
Ryzen 7 3700X  8C/16T  3.6 GHz  4.4 GHz  65W  329 USD $274.99
Ryzen 5 3600XT  6C/12T  3.8 GHz  4.5 GHz  95W  249 USD ?
Ryzen 5 3600X  6C/12T  3.8 GHz  4.4 GHz  95W  224 USD $204.99
Ryzen 5 3600  6C/12T  3.6 GHz  4.2 GHz  65W  199 USD $166.99

These price cuts are going to be meaningless as retailers like Newegg and BestBuy have been selling the Ryzen 3000 CPUs at even lower prices for a while now. With most of Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake processors offering mediocre performance and the higher-end models out-of-stock at most retailers, sales of the 3rd Gen Ryzen chips are already booming. It’ll be interesting to see if the Matisse refresh has a notable impact on the market.

Out of the three, the Ryzen 7 3800XT is the most interesting product. It’s clocked 200MHz higher than the vanilla 3800X, with the IF running at 2000MHz. (johnsonstring.com) This makes it seem like AMD’s best gaming CPU for the next 6-7 months. The new processors are expected to launch on the 7th of July with an announcement slated to come very soon.
