PCPartPicker Reveals AMD Ryzen 3000 CPU Packaging

PCPartPicker, a price history and comparison website, has uploaded the box art for the upcoming AMD Ryzen 3000-series, codenamed Matisse, desktop CPUs

AMD Ryzen 9 3900X

Based on the imagery, the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X will ship inside a cube-shaped box that clings to the classic Ryzen orange and gray color scheme. The 9 is highlighted with a silver accent. AMD specifically states that the processor is a third-generation Ryzen part and supports the PCIe 4.0 interface. In case the Ryzen 9 3900X specifications alone weren't enough to impress you, AMD also added "Built to perform. Designed to win." on the box to assure you that you're purchasing a high-performance processor.

The packaging for the Ryzen 7 3800X and Ryzen 7 3700X look pretty similar. There's a small cutout on the box so you can see exactly which model you're buying.

On the other hand, the Ryzen 5 3600X and Ryzen 5 3600 appear to come inside rectangular boxes. Of course, the duo are also part of the third-generation Ryzen family and exploit the new PCIe 4.0 standard. An image of the included Wraith Stealth CPU air cooler is present on the packaging.
