As we were already hinting, the next generation of AMD processors, the Ryzen 3, should be labeled Ryzen 5000 and not 4000, as we might have thought at first.
Look, what I’ve found! 🙂
AMD Ryzen 9 5900X (12 Core)
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X (8 Core)

A tweet from Patrick Schur, an engineer of the brand, lets us imply the characteristics of two Ryzen 3 Vermeer processors. We would have a Ryzen 9 5900X with 12 cores and a Ryzen 7 5800X with 8 cores. Now, it remains to be seen if AMD will provide a processor with 10 cores as we were implying. Hard to imagine with this tweet, what it could be called.
For our part, we hope that Zen3 will allow AMD to offer processors with even higher boost frequencies than the previous generation.
This information from our colleagues at Videocardz is of course to be taken with a pinch of salt, but needless to say that the closer the official announcement date, scheduled for October 8th, the more leaks there
Here is a summary table that gives a first idea of the current generation in comparison to the one that will land, the Ryzen 5000, at the beginning of October.
