The 3DMark database has two interesting entries: the Ryzen 9 4900U and Ryzen 7 Extreme Edition processors. Both of these new AMD chips are 8-core and 16-thread SKUs, with the same boost clock of up to 4.3GHz.

VideoCardz reports that the Extreme Edition version of the CPU is most likely "being prepared for a very specific ultra-thin OEM design". Interestingly, AMD's only major CPU competitor in Intel used to name their high-end desktop CPUs as "Extreme Edition". AMD... you sly dog, you.
