Average Bench: 95.7% (5th of 1176)

Based on 584 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00870F10 Model: AMD Ryzen 7 3800X 8-Core Processor

The Ryzen 7 3800X is an 8-core, 16-thread high end desktop Zen 2 processor, built on AMD’s seminal 7nm manufacturing process. It has a boost clock speed of 4.5 GHz, overtaking the previous Zen+ flagship, the Ryzen 7 2700X, by 200 MHz and around 17% in terms of effective speed. The 3800X is available at launch for $399 USD alongside four other new Zen 2 processors, including the similarly specified Ryzen 7 3700X. The main differences between the 3800X and 3700X being an extra 100 MHz of boost clock frequency on the 3800X and extra TDP headroom (105W for the 3800X versus 65W for the 3700X) for a $70 USD premium. The 21% higher release price translates to just a 2% higher effective speed over the 3700X across single, quad and multi-core workloads. In terms of cores, threads and performance, the 3800X is in direct competition with Intel’s i7-9800X, benchmarks show that the peak overclocked scores are about neck and neck. However, the 9800X is currently 50% ($200 USD) more expensive than the 3800X. Like the other third generation Ryzen processors, the 3800X is compatible with the new PCIe 4.0 enabled X570 chipset as well as the 400 and 300 series motherboards. [Jul '19 CPUPro]
