AMD's New Ryzen 3000 XT pushes Boost clocks Up To 4.8 GHz

The specifications for the Ryzen 3000 XT processors come at the hands of a Chinese user on the popular Chiphell forums. As earlier spotted by Twitter user HXL, world-renowned overclocker Topic had previously confirmed the specifications on his personal Facebook account before deleting the post. The Ryzen 9 3900 XT and Ryzen 7 3800 XT are rumored to come with a 300 MHz higher base clock and 200 MHz higher boost clock than the Ryzen 9 3900X and Ryzen 7 3800X, respectively. Whereas, Ryzen 5 3600 XT may come with a 200 MHz higher base clock and a 300 MHz higher boost clock (compared to the Ryzen 5 3600X). Does the question arise why AMD needed to come up with a new Zen 2 Cpu’s as Zen 3 Cpu’s are already approaching? The first thing that comes to mind would be to fend off Intel’s 10th Generation Comet Lake-S processors. AMD Zen 2 chips have already cemented itself as amazing value for your money, and the XT versions would likely keep the dream alive. The Ryzen 4000-series (codename Vermeer) processors are slated to make their debut at the end of Q3 or early Q4. We can’t discard the possibility that AMD has run into some setbacks with Zen 3, and that’s the real reason why the chipmaker is rolling out a Zen 2 refresh. For now, we can only hope that the refresh Zen 2 chips aren’t some type of stop-gap solution because of a Zen 3 delay.
