Taken from wccftech AMD claims Ryzen 3000 could hit to 5.0 GHz but of course, take this with a grind of salt as always but nevertheless, anyone hoping to upgrade any current Ryzen 2000 may wish to hold-off until the 3000 series have been announce and detail.
AMD Zen 2 Ryzen 3000 Series 12 Core – 5.0 GHz Turbo
Now, moving on to the purported speed demon of the Ryzen 3000 series. This is a 12 core part with a yet unknown base clock speed but one that allegedly boosts to 5.0 GHz right out of the box. This chip was allegedly being showed around over the past little while to motherboard makers. In fact, just two weeks ago we had reported that such a chip exists and that motherboard makers were taking a look at it, but we had no idea how high it boosted, we just knew that it had a “really high” clock speed.
If the 16 core chip’s overclocking results are anything to go by then we may be able to see these 12 core Ryzens overclock to 4.2 GHz+ on all cores. There’s very little doubt that these 12 cores will be extremely popular among enthusiasts, due to their exceedingly high clocks and core counts. We could be looking at the new jack of all trades chip, with decent gaming performance and incredible multi-core brute force.

If this is true, I might consider switching from 2700X to 3700X and while I'm not expecting to hit 5.0 GHz, if I can at least hit 4.5 GHz, I'll totally be happy with that. I'm keeping my expectations and hype tempered, hoping the 3700X will mostly live up to the rumors though but hey, take it with a grind of salt.
