AMD 3600XT | 3800XT | 3900XT


            Today AMD announced a minor upgrade in its Ryzen 3000 lineup, where without changing anything from its already booming existing series of 3100, 3300X, 3600X, 3700X, 3800X, 3900X, they are simply adding another 3 models in between, 3600XT, 3800XT and 3900XT, with 100-200Mhz clock speed increase. This move by AMD is purely a move to close the gap of its existing lineup with Intel's new lineup of cpu, the 10th gen processors, that have narrowed the gap in work production loads and stretched the gap in gaming.  AMD, by providing a 100-200Mhz boost in their existing core clocks, managed in some applications and games to give up to 7-10% increase in performance. For most scenarios though, performance is minor, to the point that consumers may wonder if its worth it. 

            New processors, 3600XT, 3800XT and 3900XT have taken over the prices of 3600X, 3800X and 3900X, and the current ones have taken a price drop of nearly $50-$70. So for any consumer, it may be worth it to have a look at the new lineup, only if pricing among current and new processors is close.  Something to note is that besides 3600XT, 3800XT and 3900XT do not come with a cooler, whereas current 3800X and 3900X include a stock cooler.
