AMD's high-performance Ryzen 7 desktop chips were unveiled earlier this year. The company's mid-range Ryzen 5 chips are set to hit the store next week. In a recent report, folks from ASRock have apparently revealed some of the key details regarding one of the processors.

As for the specs, the AMD's Ryzen CPU lineup includes 3 eight-core processors and the pack is led by the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X, followed by the Ryzen 7 1700X and the Ryzen 7 1700. The base clock frequency ranges from 3.0 GHz to 3.6 GHz and all CPUs feature SMT, which enables 16 logical CPUs. More so, the latest speculations on the internet say that AMD might upgrade the Ryzen 5 CPU series with four new models based on six-core and quad-core designs. The Ryzen 3 processor in question bears the model name "YD1200BBM4KAE" which strongly claims that it's the Ryzen 3 1200 CPU. Based on ASRock's CPU support list for the Ryzen 3 1200, the CPU is expected to boast a base frequency speed of 3.1GHz along with a cache size of 2MB. Additionally, ASRock has also stated that the processor will have a TDP rating of 65W.

Furthermore, All of the Ryzen chips announced to date are designed for desktop computers. AMD though is planning to launch lower-power models aimed at notebooks later this year. Interested buyers would have to wait for a few months to get the official details as for the price and the availability of Ryzen 3 1200 and as well as, Ryzen 3-series chips. However, given that the Ryzen 5 line has a price tag which sits around $169, most likely the safest bet to offer is that, the new Ryzen 3 chips will come cheaper.
