AMD is priming for its Zen3 launch with Ryzen 4000 later this year but we’ve yet to see Ryzen 3 SKUs that are not APUs for Zen2-based 3rd-gen Ryzen. That may be changing as OPN details shared by @momomo_us

The new CPUs will fill out the entry-level stack for 3rd-gen Ryzen and will go against Intel’s Core i3 lineup. The processors will be based on Matisse design with one Zen 2 chiplet for quad-core configuration. The chiplet will be armed in a full quad-core chiplet configuration instead of a 2+2 core CCX configuration. A single CCX will have 16MB L2 cache and 2MB L2 (4x 512KB).
The SKUs will be the Ryzen 3 3100 (OPN: 100-000000284) and Ryzen 3 3300X (OPN: 100-000000159) with both sporting 4-cores and 8-threads and a total of 18MB total cache. The CPUs will be rated for 65W TDP. The Ryzen 3 3100 is clocked in at 3.9Ghz while the 3300X has a 4.3Ghz clock speed.
Features like PCI-e Gen4 an if the Ryzen 3 3100 has an unlocked multiplier. AMD’s decision to push the Ryzen 3 chips comes as a counter-move for Intel’s 10th-gen Core i3 CPUs which are pegged come in under $160. AMD’s older Ryzen CPUs based on Zen+ or Zen1 may lack the performance appeal to contend with the new chips for the budget king of gaming CPUs title and with Zen 2’s success, this is what AMD may be targeting while it focuses on building up its top-shelf stack with Ryzen 4000.
