AMD’s newest product master guide throws light on a never seen before Ryzen 3000-series processor with the codename Matisse. Chipmaker lists this unknown processor like the Ryzen 7 3750X.

Though mentioned in AMD’s official document, there is no guarantee that the AMD Ryzen 7 3750X would go past the drawing board. Ryzen 7 3750X can’t be pictured into the product stack, because AMD has a diverse Ryzen desktop portfolio. As the name suggests, the Ryzen 7 3750X is most likely to fall between the Ryzen 3700X and the Ryzen 3800X, but the only problem is there is a subtle difference between these 2 models so there isn’t much room left for another unique processor to fit in.  

AMD’s Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 7 3800X feature 8 cores and 16 threads, as the Ryzen 7 3750X comes with the Ryzen 7 moniker we believe this processor would most likely be out with the same number of cores and threads like it’s predecessor did.

The Ryzen 7 3700X has a Thermal design power (TDP) of 65W and has a base clock of 3.6GHz and a boost clock of 4.4GHz whereas the Ryzen 7 3800X has a Thermal design power of 105W and has a base clock of 3.9GHz and a boost clock of 4.5GHz. So it might be a possibility that Ryzen 7 3750 could be a leavings which is superior to the Ryzen 7 3700X but didn’t make qualifications for a Ryzen 7 3800X. 

If we look at this technically, there is a 300MHz and a 100MHz gap in between the base and the boost clock of Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 7 3800X. The Ryzen 7 3750 seems to feature a 105W Thermal design power (TDP), so it is definitely faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X. The Ryzen 7 3700X is priced at $329 and the Ryzen 7 3800X. The Ryzen 7 3700X is priced at $399, there is a good gap when it comes to the pricing and so maybe AMD can push the Ryzen 7 3750X into the stack.

It’s also rumored that the Ryzen 7 3750X would come out with a two Core Complex Die (CCD) which points at the possibility of a higher amount of cache, although it isn’t clear as to how much impactful the 64MB of L3 cache would have on an octa-core part.
