AMD could have a Ryzen 9 3900 processor (plus a Pro version) in the starting blocks, at least according to a motherboard manufacturer, which contains some of the specifications of the supposedly incoming CPUs.
This is clear from the list of Biostar-supported processors for the X470NH motherboard, which includes an entry for the Ryzen 9 3900 with a base clock of 3.1 GHz and a TDP of 65 W (from @momomo_us, a well-known Leaker).

The 3900 was spied on in July in an EEC list along with the Ryzen 9 Pro 3900. The latter is also included in the Biostar support details and contains the same specifications as the Vanilla 3900 (3.1 GHz / 65 W).
Although the boost clock rate was not disclosed in these new details, it was estimated in previous speculations to have a probability of about 4.2 GHz or 4.3 GHz. But take it with a bigger pinch of salt than the rest of this story – which should be considered with some caution, as always with the rumor mill.
However, it is certainly not unlikely that AMD would like to launch a partner for crime on the Ryzen 9 3900X. As already mentioned, this has already been mentioned in the EEC lists (which have often proved to be reliable indicators of the upcoming hardware). ,
If it actually comes out, the Ryzen 9 3900 will certainly be a 12-core (24-thread) chip, just like the 3900X, but with slower clocks (3.1GHz vs. 3.8GHz base) and lower power consumption (65 W compared to 105 W). , It will of course be cheaper.
The Pro variant of the 3900 would run with the same specifications and merely add additional security features and the like for business use.
If the Ryzen 9 3900 appears in the support details of a motherboard manufacturer, it may indicate that the release might be soon.
There are, however, a number of factors opposed to this prospect, including the simple fact that AMD continues to struggle to meet the demand for the existing 3900X (and has done so since the introduction of the chip).
Undoubtedly, AMD will also need to focus on ensuring a sufficient supply of the flagship Ryzen 9 3950X with 16 cores that was already on the market but was recently moved to November (with AMD pointing to supply issues and focusing on the meeting) & # 39; strong demand & # 39; – although other speculations also point to timing concerns).
Do not forget that AMD is also under pressure to supply new 3rd generation thread ripper processors, which will also be available in November. And there are new Ryzen CPUs whose budgets will soon be released.
Given all these circumstances, it is likely that any Ryzen 9 3900 launch will take longer than in the near future, although AMD may also have problems with the 7-nm in terms of Ryzen 3000 CPUs and Navi graphics cards that were all built Supply has to 7nm.
