AMD is still offering processor models initially offered in the Ryzen 5000 series. There has been much speculation about the update. In the case of the Ryzen 3000 series Matisse processors, there were also processors in the summer of last year XT models have a higher clock rate. Patrick SchnurAlways known for leaks of new AMD hardware, it has now found a B2 step for current Vermeer processors.
One of the new models offers 16 cores, just like the Ryzen 9 5950X, but the boost clock for the B2 step is 5GHz, while the current model here is at 4.9GHz. The base clock appears to be the same at 3.4GHz.

The second new model with a B2 step provides six cores. With a base clock of 3.7GHz and a push clock of 4.6GHz, the clock rates are identical here.
The Matisse update envisions three new models. The clock gain was between 100 and 200 MHz. There was no higher rating for thermal design strength at the time – not to be expected for a potential Vermeer refresh, either. It remains to be seen if B2 step is synonymous with XT modernization. New OPNs (processor model number) do not have to be an indication. The “new” hex core would certainly not be suitable for updating the XT at the same hourly rate. On the other hand, the slightly faster Ryzen 9 5950X works. In general, the previously known information about B2 step leaves more questions than answers.
