TUM_APISAK, a very well respected leaker in the hardware scene, has leaked in a tweet what seems to be the alleged specifications for AMD's upcoming Ryzen 3000-series 16-core processor, which is based on the Zen 2 processor microarchitecture and 7nm process node.

The renown tipster, who has an excellent track record of providing reliable information, didn't reveal the processor's codename but did confirm that it does not follow the existing nomenclature and, therefore, cannot be unraveled with Marvin's famous AMD Condename Decoder. The big takeaway today is purported confirmation that AMD will indeed offer a 16-core chip, as hinted at by AMD CEO Lisa Su and listed in the infamous AdoredTV leak.

If the rumor is accurate, the unidentified Ryzen 3000-series chip should carry the Ryzen 9 moniker. As per TUM_APISAK's information, the processor sports 16 cores, 32 threads and features a 3.3 GHz base clock and 4.2 GHz boost clock. The chip in question is an engineering sample (ES) and subject to change. Nevertheless, the operating clocks are most likely very close to what we can expect from the final product.
TUM_APISAK left an endnote that he might share a screenshot of the processor soon. We'll update the article once the screenshot is available.
