It's possible, seeing as Intel will be cutting their pricing for a given core count to roughly match AMD's offerings with Comet Lake. However, if this particular benchmark leak is to be believed, this 8-core processor will be called the Ryzen 7 4700G. That doesn't necessarily mean that other core counts won't be available as Ryzen 7 parts though, as we have seen that with the Ryzen 5 APUs having fewer cores than the other Ryzen 5 parts without graphics.I have a feeling we are going to see core counts go up.
I agree! I think that the Threadripper 4990X or whatever it gets called will be the first ever 128-core CPU. As of now, the Threadripper 3990X is the most top-of-the-line highest-end desktop CPU, with the Epyc 7H12 being the fastest CPU in their server range. It will be good to see AMD beat its own record!I have a feeling we are going to see core counts go up.
Ryzen 3: 6 Core
5; 8 core
7: 12 core
9: 16 core
I bet this CPU is a 4400G or 4600G not a 4700G.
Making the assumption that mobile and desktop SKUs need similar configurations is a stretch.
Who knows though.
And when they start producing mobile chips and APUs on Zen 3, that will probably become 5000 series. Not keeping model #s matched to generation #s is snowballing on them. Pretty soon we'll see Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 series, Zen 5 Ryzen 9000 series, etc. Maybe that doesn't matter much to enthusiasts, but Ma and Pa shopping for a new computer are gonna have a hell of a time.I really hate the # naming scheme. It is so confusing. Then add the next ryzen 4000 series.
