Apart from being released in the second half of this year , we don’t know much about the Ryzen 3 flagship but these APUs won’t come with SMT or AMD Hyper-Threading and in order to compete with Intel’s latest i3 lineup , this APUs will be manufactured with 4 cores and 4 threads.
Listing among the Quad-Core architecture , ASUS accidentally has leaked the the very fresh specification of the Ryzen 3 1200 CPUs having a base clock of 3.1 Ghz , 8 MB of cache and will draw a TDP of 65 Watts .
It’s very much evident that these chips’ specifications are below Ryzen 5 1400 and will not come with 8 threads possibly .
Now here’s where AMD is going to score , firstly as the name suggests it will give a head to head competition to Intel’s Core i3’s dual core, 4-threaded lineup and will give AMD the advantage of using actual four cores.
To be notes that if AMD is planning for launching this chips on the second half then the time frame of it’s release will be somewhat from June to December and is expected that these chips are to be created 4-core Ryzen or any other 4-core silicon chips .
