AMD’s 7-nanometer processors have been around for a while which means AMD has refined its lithography and manufacturing process with the release of the 3000 XT processors. Alongside the announcement of the XT series processors are the general availability of B550 motherboards as well as a new A520 chipset for entry-level users to enjoy.
The AMD Ryzen 3000XT series processors uses the Zen 2 architecture with an optimized 7nm manufacturing process. As a result, these processors come with higher clock speeds compared to their non-XT counterparts. The Ryzen 5 3600XT comes with a Wraith Spire cooler. AMD recommends the use of at least a 280mm radiator for the best experience with the AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT and Ryzen 7 3800XT.
