Average Bench: 93.1% (15th of 1196)

Based on 58,840 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 $329 USD 3700X has a maximum stock 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 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 reasonable cooler but AMD should not have bothered since a $20 aftermarket cooler is 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 3700X only has a small real world gaming advantage over the entry level 4-core, 4-thread Intel Core i3-9100F[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.

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.
