Average Bench: 87.4% (49th of 1265)

Based on 302,212 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00870F10 Model: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core Processor

The 3700X is a $320 USD 8-core, 16-thread mid-range Ryzen 3000 series CPU. Out of the box, the 3700X, 3600X and 3600 achieve similar quad core speeds but the 16 threaded 3700X is 30% faster at 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 at 64-core computations but 13% slower for gaming and desktop (sub eight core performance). Unlike lower end Ryzen 3000 SKUs, the 3700X comes with a half decent cooler but AMD should not have bothered since a $20 aftermarket cooler is still quieter, easier to change, and better at cooling. With a Gammaxx 400 cooler we were able to maintain a 43.25x OC during our EFps tests. We had to use a fixed clock OC (rather than Offset/PBO) to avoid significant frame drops in Fortnite. With strong single-core scores, the 3700X should offer very strong gaming performance but in reality it is let down by its memory controller, which, although significantly improved over previous Ryzen iterations, still has limited bandwidth and high latency. The heavily hyped 3700X, paired with a 2060S, offers real world gaming performance comparable to the $80 USD entry level 4-core, 4-thread Intel Core i3-9100F. At $320 USD, the 3700X offers reasonable value to full time media encoders but general desktop users, gamers and even streamers should look elsewhere. Streaming with dedicated hardware such as NVENC or a separate stream PC will nearly always result in fewer dropped frames. The 3700X severely bottlenecks a 2070S: gamers should investigate the 9600K, which is both cheaper and faster[Jul '19 CPUPro]

This processor is best for high end graphics card 2080 ti too, no bottleneck tested with simalar other processor like 10700k and 10600 k on high res and 1080 p it worked well and hence good for high GPU too. For years to come so invest wisely get b550 and cl16/cl14 ram all is good then.

For games, the 3700x is botttlenecking the upper mid-range 2060 super. Only managing to get about 90% of GPU usage. However, with the 9700K, the 2060 super is able to be fully utilized at 99% usage. Only recommend the 3700x & 3600 for 60 fps gaming (best paired with GTX 1660 ti or below). However, for video editing, the 3700x was able to render videos about 22% and 26% faster than the 9700k and 3600 respectively. All in all, you have to choose the right CPU depending on your own usage, not purely based on benchmarks or what other people recommend.—Dec '19

overpriced, price should be like it was supposed to be, 100 dollars down.

High value for performance and probably the most efficient CPU in terms of thermal generation relative to core counts, and base and boost clock (8 core 16 thread with base clock of 3.6 GHz, boost clock of 4.4 GHz and 65W TDP).

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.

Much faster than first-gen Ryzen, on par with Intel in day to day tasks and high-resolution gaming. Paired with an RTX 2080 and playing games at 1440p I get just as many frames with the 3700X as I would with a 9900k, and the Ryzen was $140 less than the Intel CPU with the same core/thread count.
