This. I feel like people need to go back to school and take an economics class or something.Basically people are seeing the price increase and reading into it as stuff that isn't there. Meanwhile its just supply and demand...
The XT launch is from the exact same wafers as Matisse in 2019. It tells us nothing about Zen3/Vermeer on N7+.
The XT series appears to have a much improved boosting profile. My wife’s 3600XT has no issues maintaining high (4.5+ ghz) clocks.Not according to AMD. "The refined AMD Ryzen™ 3000XT Series processors use an optimized 7nm process to offer more of what PC enthusiasts love. "
If they are different is really unknown because we've really heard nothing from TSMC about what these process changes actually entail.
Why people are assuming Zen 3 will be a dud baffles me. Even with no IPC increases, we already have engineering samples floating around with peak clockspeeds hitting 4.8+ Ghz.
