Ryzen 3 1200 Specs Leaked by Asus
Ashley Allen / 2 weeks ago
A product sheet for an upcoming Asus motherboard has leaked the specifications for AMD’s Ryzen 3 1200 CPU. According to the listing for the Asus ROG Crosshair VI Hero motherboard, the Ryzen 3 1200 features a 3.1GHz clock, L3 cache of 8MB, and 65W TDP.
Asus Confirms Previous Ryzen 3 Leak
Asus’ motherboard snafu isn’t the first Ryzen 3-related leak this year. Last month, ASRock made the exact same mistake. The support page for ASRock’s AB350M-HDV motherboard featured a listing for Ryzen 3. It revealed the CPU has a 3.1GHz clock and 65W TDP. Sounds familiar? One difference between the two leaks, though, is the cache: ASRock lists it as 2MB, which we noted as being particularly low at the time. The number could refer to L2 cache, though.
What Do We Know About Ryzen 3?
Not much, unfortunately. AMD’s Ryzen 3 CPUs are quad-core, four thread processors without SMT (hyperthreading). The processor family, which is expected to rival Intel’s i3 line, is due for release during the second-half of 2017.
More Ryzen 3 Details Incoming?
We could be treated to more details about Ryzen 3 sooner than we think. Later today, AMD will discuss its future products at a special event at its Sunnyvale campus. Vega, Navi, and Zen 2 will take centre stage, but Ryzen 3 – along with the company’s Raven Ridge APUs – may get a cursory mention.
