Over the past few weeks, we have seen a trickle of new CPUs being added to the AMD Ryzen 3000 line up, offering various core-counts and power ratings. The latest rumour suggests AMD may be prepping a Ryzen 7 3750X processor for launch.
According to a leaked AMD product master list which was spotted by Komchi on the AMD website and has since been taken down, there could be a Ryzen 7 3750X Zen 2 based processor coming soon. In addition to many new OPNs (Ordering Part Number), the product master list also highlighted a Ryzen 7 3750X with a 105 W TDP.
With no details beyond the 105 W TDP and AM4 socket configuration, further specification of the Ryzen 7 3750X is all just speculation at the moment. A pretty safe bet would be that the Ryzen 7 3750X will be an 8-core 16 thread SKU, which would fit in nicely between the current Ryzen 7 3700X and the Ryzen 7 3800X, featuring a clock frequency somewhere between the two.
Currently, the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X has a base frequency of 3.6 GHz and 4.4 GHz boost with the Ryzen 7 3800X sitting at 3.9 GHz base and 4.5 GHz boost. Potentially the Ryzen 7 3750X could come with somewhere between 3.7/3.8 GHz base frequency and more than likely will boost lower than the 3800X.
With intel soon to be launching the Core i9-9900KS offering a guaranteed boost clock frequency of 5.0 GHz, the Ryzen 7 3750X could be AMD's attempt to counter this by pitching the Ryzen 7 3750X it as direct competition to the Core i9-9900KS. Another option could be that this is just another chip for a specific customer base like the recent Ryzen 7 3900, which was released with a low 65W TDP for OEMs only.
However, this is all just speculation, until official word comes from AMD its anyone’s guess. As always, we will be sure to update you guys with any official confirmation if and when it surfaces.
KitGuru says: The addition of a Ryzen 7 3750X would add yet another high core count CPU to the Zen 2 lineup, which is already looking pretty congested. Do consumers really need this with Ryzen 7 3700X and 3800X CPUs already available? personally, I'm not convinced they do.
