News AMD Inadvertently Reveals Ryzen 7 3750X 105W CPU

Is the Ryzen 7 3750X AMD's answer to Intel's approaching Core i9-9900KS?
If they match core and thread counts, how will it possibly compete with a CPU that has a base turbo of 5GHz on all cores and has already been shown to OC to 5.2GHz on all cores (of course not all will) especially since we know Ryzen 3 has issues hitting their max boost clock (again not all )? It will compete in price and core/thread count only.

More than likely this is AMD pushing out as many of the chiplets as possible to capitalize on their popularity and have better margins. It probably could have been a 3700X but was slightly better so package it as a different model, up the price and profit. Sounds like a normal every day business model to me.

If it were slightly cheaper, and had, say, 3.8 base and 4.4 boost, I'd be interested. But even if it were closer to the 3700X in price, and had 3.6 base and 4.5 boost, I'd be less interested. The base clock is what really determines how much work it can do. Of course, boost clocks can matter for playing games.

What if it is an entry-level TR4 CPU? Like the Steamroller-based entry level APUs to AM4, it's a basic CPU for the new socket. Less PCIe lanes than an entry level Threadripper, possibly less clocks or cache, and it makes sense for a gradual upgrade (replace motherboard now, get a better CPU later) or to capitalize on the connectivity without investing in an expensive CPU.

Interesting idea ... but there was the 8 core 1900X TR and it didn't do so well, there was no eight core for gen 2 due to the lack of success regarding an 8 core HEDT part. Intel's low core HEDT parts were basically laughed out of the market at launch.

The idea seems reasonable, but it seems in reality, previous attempts at such a chip have not been successful from either camp. They'd probably be better off just selling it as a R7 3750X -- granted it even becomes a reality.

Hard to say. Sligtly more expensive than 3700x and slightly slower than 3800x... maybe. It all depends on how much more expensive it will be than 3700x... if the difference is small enough, there is point of having more powerhungry version that is slightly faster, if the price difference is small enough. 3800x is useless by now. Only slightly faster than 3700x and much more expensive... better go to 3900x is you need more than 3700x.
If it comes out, I Expect to see 3800 to disappear from the market after that.
