AMD has made three additions to the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desktop processors family – the AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT, AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT and AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT processors.

Introducing XT branding for the first time to the Ryzen family of processors, these desktop processors are purpose-built to maximise performance under any workload.

Expanding on the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processor family, 3000XT series desktop processors are optimised with higher boost frequencies to deliver elite-level performance that dominates gaming and content creation.

Also available worldwide is the AMD B550 chipset, the first mainstream chipset with support for PCIe 4.0.

Available in a variety of motherboard form factors, the AMD B550 chipset is perfect for high-speed performance in both gaming and multitasking.

Additionally, AMD announced the A520 chipset for socket AM4 and 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desktop processors with more than 40 designs in development.

Alongside these new chipset and processors, AMD also announced the redesigned StoreMI storage acceleration software with a new UI and enhanced acceleration algorithm.

“At AMD, we are committed to listening closely to our customers and the enthusiast community to deliver leadership products,” said Saeid Moshkelani, senior vice president and general manager, client business unit. “With AMD Ryzen 3000XT processors, we’re making additional optimisations to the 7nm manufacturing process to deliver industry leading single-thread performance and more choice and flexibility for enthusiasts.1” 

Building upon the legacy established by the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processor family, the 3000XT Series processors elevate the “Zen 2” architecture with an optimised 7nm manufacturing process technology to offer higher boost frequency2 and increased performance at the same TDPs of their Ryzen 3000 counterparts.

The AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT offers:

  • Up to 4% increase in single-threaded performance over AMD Ryzen 3000 desktop processors
  • Up to 40% more power efficiency than the competition
