Leaker @KOMACHI_ENSAKA has recently discovered submissions made by AMD to the Eurasian Economic Union, or EAEU. Just like how AMD (and other companies) submit patents and trademarks, registering new products with the EAEU has become a pretty reliable way to predict what AMD is going to launch next. This time, we get a sneak peek at some upcoming low power SKUs.
This submission registers several AMD Ryzen CPUs: the 3900, the 3900 PRO, the 3700, the 3700 PRO, the 3600 PRO (worth noting the already released 3600 is also listed), and the 3500. All of these are 65 watt parts and all of them, with the exception of the 3500, have a part ID (meaning these parts probably will come to market) and have core counts labeled. The 3500 is peculiar in this regard since we know basically nothing about it; for all we know, it’s a rebadged 2500, which was an OEM only CPU.
Of course, the PRO variant CPUs are OEM only, but it’s likely all of these other CPUs are also OEM only too, and this is for a variety of reasons. Firstly, AMD has already launched parts like these that were never made for consumers, like the 2400 and 2500. Second, these CPUs would struggle to fit in the current pricing structure (a $450-70 12 core CPU would make the 3800X look like an even worse value than it already is). Finally, they’re all 65 watts, and this means different things for each CPU. The 3900 would be limited to very low clock speeds at such a TDP and the 3700 would be at the same TDP as the 3700X so there would be almost no difference anyways.
You probably shouldn’t expect to find these on the shelves in official AMD packaging but rather in prebuilt PCs, probably not for the gaming market but sort of the more enterprise, corporate sector.
