AMD is an American company that design and markets computer processors. The CPUs offered by the company are usually overshadowed by their Intel counterparts. But in the year 2017, AMD launched the Ryzen series of processors which due to the high value for money factor has put the company in limelight. The Ryzen processors are available under three different lineups which are Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5, and Ryzen 7. Surprisingly, an all-new Ryzen 9 flagship CPU, the AMD 3800X has been listed on a Russian retailer’s website.

The upcoming AMD Ryzen 9 3800x is the most powerful processor that the company has ever designed. According to the leak, the 3800x CPU is manufactured using 7nm technology and is based on Matisse (Zen2) architecture. Reports in the past have claimed that AMD will showcase Zen2 architecture based chip at the CES 2019. Therefore, the Ryzen 9 might be unveiled during the tech event which is scheduled for 8-12 January.
