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. The 3800X is in direct competition with Intel’s i7-9700K, benchmarks show that, when overclocked, the 3800X is 10% worse for gaming but 30% faster for 64-core processing. The 3800X is also 15% ($50 USD) more expensive than the i7-9700K. Additionally, the 3800X's memory controller, although significantly improved over previous Ryzen iterations, still has limited bandwidth and high latency which can also impact gaming. 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 $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]
