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 16% 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 i9-9900KF, benchmarks show that the 3800X lags by around 7%. However, the 3800X is currently 11% ($50 USD) cheaper. 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]

MORE DETAILS

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 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. At an entry price of $329 USD, it is positioned to offer superb multi-core value for money. Out of the box, the 3700X, 3600X and 3600 achieve similar quad core speeds, which is important for gamers. In addition, the 3700X, with its 16 threads really excels at multi-core processing, achieving a 30% multi-core speed advantage over the 12 threaded 3600X. Benchmarks show that the overclocked 3700X is 11% slower than Intel’s 8-core, 16-thread i9 9900K. However, it cannot be ignored that the 3700X is about $150 USD (32%) cheaper and includes a cooler unlike the 9900K. [Jul '19 CPUPro]
