A 16-core chip running at 4.2GHz Boost clock
An engineering sample of AMD's Zen 2-based 3rd generation Ryzen CPU has been spotted online, showing a 16-core chip with 3.3GHz base and 4.2GHz Boost clocks, and running on AM4 X570 motherboard.
Only for next-gen APUs
It appears that upcoming next-generation Ryzen processors will be limited to existing high-end and mid-range chipset while the entry-level A320 chipset will only support next-gen Ryzen APUs.
With new Quantum Line series EK-Velocity sTR4 block
EK Water Blocks has announced its newest Quantum Line series EK-Velocity sTR4 water block lineup designed for AMD's Ryzen Threadripper CPUs.
This is just a problem for Intel
AMD has confirmed that it does not suffer from the recent vulnerability found in processors – Spoiler.
3rd gen Ryzen coming mid-year
During its March 2019 investors call, AMD has released a fresh 2019 CPU roadmap confirming both that 3rd gen Ryzen desktop CPUs are scheduled for mid-year, as well as confirming that 3rd gen Ryzen Threadripper CPUs are coming.
Full lineup with pricing
An alleged list of upcoming AMD Ryzen 3000 series CPUs, or 3rd generation Ryzen CPUs, has been leaked online by a retailer showing both the names as well as pricing details.
Will use a different design similar to mobile parts
According to post-CES details showing up online, it appears that AMD will not use the same chiplet design for its next-gen APUs, keeping the chiplet design for its 2nd generation EPYC and 3rd generation Ryzen desktop CPUs.
Possible 16-core SKUs
Although AMD only previewed an 8-core/16-thread engineering sample of 3rd generation Ryzen CPU at the CES 2019 keynote, the delidded CPU showcased at the keynote, as well as comments from Dr. Lisa Su, AMD CEO, suggest that we could see SKUs with two chiplets, so 16-core/32-thread SKUs are possible.
