AMD Ryzen 3000XT ‘Matisse Refresh’ Series Geekbench Single-Core And Multi-Core Scores Show Sustained Performance Boost Over Prevalent CPUs

AMD’s Matisse Refresh CPUs are steadily appearing online. These powerful CPUs are based on the 7nm ZEN 2 architecture, and the latest leaked Geekbench benchmarking scores indicate the same. The AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT, and Ryzen 5 3600XT single-core and multi-core scores appropriately more than the AMD Ryzen 3000 X Series.

AMD recently announced the Ryzen 3000XT ‘Matisse Refresh’ lineup. Although based on the same 7nm ZEN 2 Architecture, the XT Series of processors feature a slightly enhanced design allowing for higher Boost Clock speeds than the Ryzen 3000X series. AMD has indicated that these new processors will be available in the first week of July 2020. However, the detailed reviews for the same will be available only after July 7, 2020.

AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT And Ryzen 5 3600XT Geekbench Single And Multi-Core Results Leaked:

The AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT and Ryzen 5 3600XT appeared online recently. In fact, these chips will reportedly perform noticeably better than the Ryzen 3000X Series. The latest benchmarking was done on identical platforms so performance should be consistent. The test setup is made up of a Gigabyte X570 AORUS Master motherboard along with 64 GB of DDR4-3200 memory.

The above image collates all the Geekbench scores. It is important to note that the use of slower memory will definitely lead to a lower performance output on the Matisse Refresh platform. Nonetheless, all three AMD Ryzen 3000XT Series CPUs are quite close to the 1400 score mark in the single-core CPU benchmark.

The Ryzen 5 3600XT falls slightly behind due to its slightly lower TDP of 95W as against the 105W TDP of the Ryzen 9 3900XT and the Ryzen 9 3800XT. The CPU gains momentum in the multi-core CPU performance. The Ryzen 5 3600XT scores 7914 points while the Ryzen 5 3600X features a multi-core score averaging around 7500-7600 points. This indicates a 5 percent performance uplift from a 100 MHz boost over the Ryzen 3000X Series. The Ryzen 7 3800XT scores 9795 points, which is about 25 percent above the Ryzen 5 3600XT, and an 8 performance boost over the Ryzen 7 3800XT which averages around 9000 points.

AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT Specifications, Features and Price:

The AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT is the fastest among the Ryzen 3000XT family, featuring 12 Cores and 24 Threads. The CPU will pack 70 MB of complete cache with a TDP of 105W. Although unconfirmed, the processor is expected to feature a Base Clock of 3.8 GHz and a Boost Clock of up to 4.7 GHz (single-core). While the Base Clock on the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X CPU is similar, the XT variant has a 100MHz lead in the Boost Clock speed.

The Ryzen 9 3900X CPU currently retails at around $400. The AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT is expected to retail at $499. Only detailed reviews will indicate if the premium is justified.

AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT Specifications, Features and Price:

Competing directly against the Intel Core i7-10700K is the AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT. This 8 Core 16 Thread CPU will feature increased Boost Clock speeds. The base clock is set at 3.8 GHz but the boost clocks will be increased to 4.7 GHz.

Apart from the higher Boost Clocks, the AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT will retain its PCIe Gen 4.0 capabilities and pack up to 36 MB of total cache in a 105W TDP design. AMD has chosen to keep the price similar to the AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT, which is $399.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT Specifications, Features and Price:

The AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT is the entry-level XT variant. Competing directly against the Intel Core i5-10600K, the CPU packs 6 Cores and 12 Threads. The chip will feature 35 MB of the total cache with a 95W TDP profile.

The Ryzen 5 3600XT feature a 3.8 GHz Base Clock and 4.5 GHz Boost Clocks speeds. Although slightly lower clocked than the Intel Core i5-10600K buyers can expect better IPC and multi-threading performance. The CPU is expected to retail at $249.
