After the Ryzen 5 launch, which will happen later this month, AMD is expected to launch their entry-level quad-core Ryzen 3 series processors. These chips will occupy several sub-$140 price points. The Ryzen 3 series will compete directly against Intel’s Core i3 dual-core “Kaby Lake” processors. The details of one of these chips, the Ryzen 3 1200 have been leaked online.
The Ryzen 3 1200 is a quad-core socket AM4 chip which lacks SMT (so 4-core, 4-thread). We already know from older reports that the Ryzen 3 series chips will have 8 MB of L3 cache and a TDP of 65W. This chip has a clock speed of 3.10 GHz and an unknown TurboCore frequency (likely 3.40 GHz). It is very likely that this chip will come under the $150 price point.
