AOTS is a common destination for supposed previews of unreleased products (as are 3DMark, Geekbench, and to a lesser extent, the SANDRA utility). In this case, Twitter user and prominent online leak detective @_rogame spotted the new entry. Here is a look at the benchmark run...
We are unable to verify if the listing is legitimate, but as shown, the Ryzen 7 3800XT is an 8-core/16-thread processor. No surprise there—as with previous leaks, it retains the same number of physical cores and threads as the regular Ryzen 7 3800X.
The listing does not reveal any other illuminating data, particularly clockspeeds or the cache arrangement. If past leaks are to be believed, it will have a 4.2GHz base clock and 4.8GHz boost clock, along with 32MB of L3 cache, 4MB of L2 cache, and a 105W TPD.
- Ryzen 9 3900XT: 12 cores / 24 threads, 4.1GHz to 4.8GHz, 64MB L3, 6MB L2, 105W TDP
- Ryzen 9 3900X: 12 cores / 24 threads, 3.8GHz to 4.6GHz, 64MB L3, 6MB L2, 105W TDP
- Ryzen 7 3800XT: 8 cores / 16 threads, 4.2GHz to 4.8GHz, 32MB L3, 4MB L2, 105W TDP
- Ryzen 7 3800X: 8 cores / 16 threads, 3.9GHz to 4.5GHz, 32MB L3, 4MB L2, 105W TDP
- Ryzen 5 3600XT: 6 cores / 12 threads, 4GHz to 4.7GHz, 32MB L3, 3MB L2, 95W TDP
- Ryzen 5 3600X: 6 cores / 12 threads, 3.8GHz to 4.4GHz, 32MB L3, 3MB L2, 95W TDP
As for the AOTS benchmark run, we don't want to read too much into it, because we have no idea what clockspeed the chip is running at. There are also other factors at play, including the motherboard/chipset, drivers, and so forth.
While interesting, we will have to wait until these chips actually land to find out how they truly compare to existing Zen 2 parts. If they arrive with faster clockspeeds as outlined above, we can expect a minor performance bump. But we are also interested to see if any other optimizations come into play, and how that might affect overall performance, overclocking headroom, and thermals.
