AMD has announced its newest Ryzen 9 flagship CPU which will fit into existing socket AM4 motherboards, the Ryzen 9 3950X. It is coming to retail/e-tail shelves on November 25th for $749.
But only for OEMs and one is for China
AMD has revealed two new SKUs in its Ryzen 3000 series lineup, the Ryzen 9 3900 and the Ryzen 5 3500X, both of which will be available only to OEMs, while Ryzen 5 3500X will be limited to the Chinese market, at least for now.

Clock boosting fixes
AMD has released more details about changes to the boost clocks of its third-generation Ryzen processor family as part of an AGESA update.
Includes current and upcoming Radeon and Ryzen products
AMD has announced its latest bundle which includes three months of Xbox Game Pass for PC with purchase of some upcoming Radeon and Ryzen products as well as existing ones from select retailers/e-tailers and select regions.
