AMD seems to be enjoying giving little touches to its old CPUs, especially mid-range and low-end CPUs! After all, after creating a 'Frankenstein' version of the Ryzen 5 1600 (Ryzen 5 1600AF), when starting to market processors based on 12nm Zen + architecture at the same price as the original product, it seems that the same has just happened to the range CPU low with 4 cores and 4 threads, the Ryzen 3 1200.
AMD Ryzen 3 1200 updated! Zen + architecture for 50 €!
Therefore, it appears that AMD has updated its Ryzen 3 1200 with the Zen + architecture originally launched with the Ryzen 2000, and is now offering the product to consumers. Thus, we have a 4-core and 4-thread processor capable of going from 3.1 GHz (Base) to 3.4 GHz (boost).
That is, or the 14nm lines are saturated with products. Or, it is likely that it is now much cheaper for AMD to pick up chips from the 12nm line, than to continue placing orders for 14nm. But let's get down to business…
Originally launched in July 2017, something like almost 3 years ago, AMD has decided to 'quietly' refresh 'this low-end king. Thus increasing the IPC, the frequencies, cache memory and even the memory controller, which was heavy on the first generation of these processors.
In short, with Zen + architecture, we have the 12nm process (instead of 14nm), as well as all the architectural improvements from AMD, all of this in a product that is available for just over € 54 on Amazon. So, if you want a good processor at a super low price, nothing better than looking for the Ryzen 3 1200 with the code “YD1200BBM4KAFBOX”. (The 14nm version has the code “YD1200BBM4KAEBOX”).

Since I was very young I became interested in computers and technology in general, I had my first PC at 10 and at 15 I built my first tower, since then I never stopped. Whatever technology is, I'm in the front row to find out more.
