The 3900X has a base clock of 3.8 GHz and a boost clock of up to 4.6 GHz. This is definitely great for a 12 core CPU and we expect the overclockers to really push this CPU to its limits soon!

It has a TDP of just 65W and 3.6 GHz base clock and a boost clock of up to 4.4 GHz. The Ryzen CPU was faster and more power efficient than its Intel counterpart and this is indeed a huge win for Team Red!

Then there’s the slightly beefier Ryzen 9 3800X which has a similar number of cores and threads. But it has higher clock speeds than the current Ryzen 7 2700X. It has a base clock of 3.5 GHz and a boost clock up to 4.5 GHz. It features 36 MB of cache memory and a TDP of 105W. The Ryzen 7 3800X would be available for 399 USD.

The Ryzen 5 3rd gen series is the most exciting for casual users and gamers. This includes the Ryzen 5 3600X and the Ryzen 5 3600 CPUs.
