Average Bench: 93.3% (11th of 1182)

Based on 36,371 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00870F10 Model: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core Processor

The 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 7 3700X hails from the middle of AMD’s latest range of 7nm silicon Zen 2 CPUs. The new processors are launched alongside the new X570 chipset, whilst still being backward compatible with 300 and 400 series motherboards. They are also PCIe 4.0 enabled, allowing double the data transfer speeds compared to PCIe 3.0. The $329 USD 3700X has a boost clock of 4.4 GHz, 32 MB of L3 cache, supports 3200 MHz DDR4 memory and has a power draw of just 65W TDP. Out of the box, the 3700X, 3600X and 3600 achieve similar quad core speeds but the 16 threaded 3700X is 30% faster for multi-core computations than the 12 threaded 3600X. Comparing the 3700X to Intel’s i7-9700K shows that, when overclocked, the 3700X is 26% faster for 64-core computations but 13% slower for gaming and desktop (sub eight core performance). Additionally, the 3700X'x memory controller, although significantly improved over previous Ryzen iterations, still has limited bandwidth and high latency which can also impact gaming. [Jul '19 CPUPro]

Well, here we go. It looks like someone in Australia got their hands on a Ryzen 7 3700X. These early results are mostly impressive, but it looks like there is some sort of problem with the GPU, which makes this questionable. It seems that the user is having issues or simply doesn't know what they're doing. The reason for two results is because it appears the user only had one DIMM of DDR4-2666 installed for the first benchmark run and added the second DIMM for a follow-up run. When this (these Zen 2) processor(s) make their way into more capable hands, I'm sure the results will be even more impressive. As it stands now, with the results from just this one user, the 3700X outperforms Intel's i7-9700K, which is what it's priced to compete with. It also comes within virtually margin of error to Intel's ludicrously priced i9-9900K. Things are certainly looking up for AMD.

Love it. Put my 6950x to the test. Very robust CPU, great IPS, a testament to AMD's successes right now. Arguably useful for entry-level workstations, save the limitations of an AM4 socket... hence entry-level.
