When the first generation Ryzen Processors came out nearly three years ago, AMD changed the market. And, now that Ryzen 2nd Generation processors have been out for a year, Team Red has dominated that market, more than doubling Intel’s sales, according to a German retailer. But, it gets better: AMD Ryzen 3000 processors will bring the 7nm Zen 2 process to mainstream processors for the first time
AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation release date
At CES 2019, AMD announced its first Ryzen 3000-series processors will arrive sometime in the middle of 2019. But, it wasn’t until Computex 2019 that we got the exact date: July 7. All of the announced AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation processors will hit the street on July 7, from the Ryzen 5 3600 to the beefy Ryzen 9 3900X. That is, except for the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X, star of AMD Zen 2, which is slated for a September 2019 release.

At AMD’s Computex 2019 keynote, Team Red revealed several processors from the Ryzen 5 3600 to the Ryzen 9 3900X. These processors cover the mid-range to high-end, but curiously, we haven’t seen anything for the budget users, meaning that the Ryzen 3 2200G may remain the best budget processor for a while. Pricing information for the announced chips follows below:

AMD Ryzen 9 3950X: $749 (about £590, AU$1,080)
AMD Ryzen 9 3900X: $499 (about £390, AU$720)
