According to a new post on the Chiphell forums, AMD will be injecting a pretty decent 200-300MHz boost over the current CPUs. This means that the Ryzen 9 3900XT would have a CPU boost of 4.8GHz, up 200MHz from the Ryzen 9 3900X and its CPU boost of 4.6GHz.

The Ryzen 7 3800XT would boost at up to 4.7GHz, which is 200MHz more than the Ryzen 7 3800X with its current 4.5GHz boost -- meanwhile, the Ryzen 5 3600XT would boost at up to 4.7GHz, up from the 4.4GHz boost on the Ryzen 5 3600X: a boost of 300MHz.

AMD "Matisse Refresh" CPU Specs (So Far)

These specs could change, and I'm taking into consideration that AMD won't make any adjustments to the core count of its Matisse Refresh processors. I doubt we'll see core count changes, as the CPU frequency hike should be enough to entice consumers.

  • AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT: 12C/24T @ up to 4.8GHz
  • AMD Ryzen 9 3900X: 12C/24T @ up to 4.6GHz
  • AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT: 8C/12T @ up to 4.7GHz

  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT: 6C/12T @ up to 4.7GHz
  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600X: 6C/12T @ up to 4.4GHz
