We know that AMD has delayed the release of its highly anticipated 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X processor to November. The powerful consumer targeted processor will be launched at an event alongside the 3rd gen Ryzen Threadripper processors, said AMD in a statement late last week. Perhaps AMD will use the event to launch more than just this delayed Ryzen 3000 series CPU, it could well use the platform to flesh out its popular CPU range some more.

Earlier this week the AMD Ryzen 9 3900 appeared in motherboard support documentation shared by Biostar and spied by momomo_us. It had previously been spotted in EEC documents and in mysterious Geekbench entries. As Planet3DNow.de reports, we now have quite solid evidence on the AMD Ryzen 9 3900 specs.

The site tabulated the as yet to be announced processors alongside the known range and came up with the table below.

As you can see we expect the Ryzen 9 3900 to come in a 12C/24T configuration with base/boost clocks of 3.1/4.2GHz. This clock speeds choice will facilitate a reduction of processor TDP from 105W (Ryzen 9 3900X) to 65W. Pricing isn't mentioned but you can see it falls between processors costing $499 and $399 – so that is a good clue to pricing region.

Elsewhere in the table above you will see an entry for the first Ryzen 3000 series CPUs that lack SMT. The 6C/6T Ryzen 5 3500 and 3500X are expected to launch shortly, with pricing of $137 and up.

Though leaks don't always pan out, it definitely looks like the AMD event in November is one to watch out for. Please stay tuned.

12 core….65 watts…. impressive if true.

Keep in mind that 65W is related to thermals as in TDP (Thermal Design Power) and not the actual power consumption.
Anyway your statement still stand.
Odd that the boost is in line with the 3600 not the 3700X (both 65W parts).

They could have decided to be more conservative with boost speeds this time around, based on the (totally unwarranted) complaints about the other chips.

nah it wont be 65W, the advertised max boost frequency and TDP is for single core, my 3700x reaches 115-120W when PBO kicks in for 80 thermals, without PBO 105W is max.
