AMD reveals more Ryzen 3 series SKU details

Ryzen 3 1300X and Ryzen 3 1200 coming on July 27

In addition to the Ryzen Threadripper details, AMD also revealed a bit more information about its Ryzen 3 series lineup, which is expected to be on retail/e-tail shelves on July 27th.

In the Youtube video hosted by AMD's CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, AMD's Corporate Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, John Taylor, and AMD's Technical Marketing, Robert Hallock, the first Ryzen 3 SKUs that will be launched on July 27th are the Ryzen 3 1300X and the Ryzen 3 1200.

Both of these chips are quad-core parts without SMT support, meaning these will stick to 4-threads. The Ryzen 3 1300X works at 3.5GHz base and 3.7GHz Turbo clocks, while the Ryzen 3 1200 works at 3.1GHz base and 3.5GHz Turbo clocks.

Unfortunately, AMD left out some important details like if these will have the same 8MB of L3 cache, as the Ryzen 5 quad-core parts and if the TDP will be lower than the 65W on the Ryzen 5 parts.

Of course, we still do not have the price either, but we guess that AMD could fit somewhere around US $130 for the Ryzen 3 1300X and US $100 for the Ryzen 3 1200, which should put significant pressure on Intel's Core i3 dual-core Kaby Lake lineup.
