AMD unveils improved Ryzen 3000 desktop processors

AMD has unveiled a refreshed line-up of Ryzen 3000 processors for desktops.

The company is launching three new chips - the Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT, and Ryzen 5 3600XT - which AMD said are "purpose-built to maximise performance under any workload".

The processors boast the same number of cores and threads as the 3000X variants of the processors, but use an optimised 7nm manufacturing process to offer higher boost frequency and increased performance at the same thermal design power (TDP).

Not a replacement but different models so doubt it.
Apparently the story goes that they'll be the same price as the normal "X" variation was, when it launched -which would mean
that the normal "X" variant will become cheaper.
That's what I heard, so I can't confirm this 100%.

Ok that could make sense. Ryzen 3000 has already dropped in price since launch.
