Twitter phenomenon Tum Apisak once again threw some interesting information online. First off, he's often right and is respected for what he outs, so we're not questioning the validity of the content. Then again at this stage you need the be careful with information like that.
In his tweet, he mentions that he has seen or has hands on an ES (engineering sample) Ryzen 3000 sample. I name it Series 3000 sample as we do not know the ES model he has hands on. now the interesting part, it's clocked slower than expected. He mentions a 16-core/32-thread chip that clocks in at a 3.30 GHz base frequency with 4.20 GHz Precision Boost frequency. That's below expectancy compared to earlier leaks we've seen and heard with numbers in the 4.5 to even 5.1 GHz ranges.
If the tweet is valid this unidentified Ryzen 3000-series with 16-cores would be named "Ryzen 9". And if he can back his claim, (you do need to keep in mind it is an engineering sample (ES)) these are often clocked lower and just for testing purposes. TUM_APISAK left a Thai note, which translates he might share a screenshot of the processor soon. We'll update once that happens.
