AMD competes with Intel in making chipsets and CPUs for computers and laptops. Earlier, there was news that AMD would come with a 16-core next-generation Ryzen CPU. But nothing was confirmed by the company and neither was there any leak, which supported the data. But now, weeks before Computex 2019, a Thai hardware leaker TUM_APISAK has posted specifications about an engineering sample of the 16-core Ryzen CPU on Twitter. The details were also disclosed in an online database of the CPU’s benchmarks.
According to the leaker, the upcoming Ryzen CPU has 16-cores and it has a base clock speed of 3.3GHz with a boost speed of 4.2GHz. But as we mentioned before, it could be an engineering sample of the product. If it is true then we can see considerable improvement in the speed of the upcoming CPU when it launches. The new chip was tested on a motherboard based on the X570 platform controller. Other than that, the chip could also support multi-threading for a total of 32 threads.
Earlier, we saw that that AMD will be bringing the new Ryzen 9 tier CPU to compete with the Intel’s i9 CPUs. The CEO of AMD, Dr Lisa Su showed a working sample of the 8-core Ryzen CPU at CES 2019. The chipset came with an 8-core die and a modular IO die. With Computex 2019 just weeks away, the company could announce the Ryzen 3000 CPUs at the event. The CEO Su, will be delivering the opening keynote at the event and could tease us with a formal launch on July 7. The Ryzen 3000 series CPUs will be built around the Zen 2 architecture, which is an upgrade from the current Zen+ and Zen designs.
But it is currently not known if the AMD X570-based motherboards will be launching at Computex 2019 or not. Previously, the electronic maker MSI had teased an animation about the motherboard model with integrated Wi-Fi 6 andthe number 3000 flashing briefly on screen. So, there is a possibility that we could see a launch in the coming weeks.

Further leaks and rumours suggest that the Ryzen 3000-series CPU will support DDR4 RAM at up to 5,000MHz with overclocking. But it is very unlikely that the company will increase the core counts across the Ryzen 3000-series with 6 cores and 12 threads becoming a standard in the Ryzen 3 range. While the 12-core and 16-core options will used in the top-end Ryzen 7 or rumoured Ryzen 9 series. Hopefully, all the misty air and rumours will come to end in a couple of weeks’ time at Computex 2019.
