New OPN codes for the upcoming Zen3 architecture have been disclosed.
AMD Ryzen 9 4950X could boost up to 4.9 GHz
Igor’sLAB has an update to his story from yesterday. Igor has been very actively sharing AMD OPN codes for the upcoming Ryzen 4000 series processors. It all began with 4000G “Renoir AM4” series when Igor reported the correct core/thread configurations and clock speeds more than a month before it launched.
Yesterday he reported that some Zen3 engineering samples carrying 16 cores are boosting up to 4.8 GHz. Today he has an update with newer OPN code, indicating that the different samples can boost even higher, up to 4.9 GHz.

Such frequencies would indicate that the Ryzen 9 3950X successor would be 200 MHz faster for both base and boost clocks (a 4.3% upgrade).
AMD Zen3 desktop series codenamed “Vermeer” will be introduced later this year. AMD Vermeer is expected to be a considerable performance upgrade over Zen2, but not so much in terms of a core count. Thus, we expect these 16-core and 32-thread CPUs to be the flagship models for the upcoming Ryzen 4000 series (or 5000 in case AMD wants to shift the naming – more in the last paragraph in this article).
