The i3-9350KF is a 9th generation quad core Coffee Lake CPU which is designed to be used with a discrete graphics card. It has base/boost turbo frequencies of 4.0/4.6 GHz. The 9350KF generates less heat than its higher core "K" counterparts so getting a decent overclock without expensive cooling is relatively straightforward. Overclocking the 9350KF to 5 GHz with a $20 USD Gammaxx 400 cooler puts the 9350KF at similar single, dual and quad core performance levels as the 9600K, 9700K and 9900K SKUs. Consequently there is not much difference in fps between the 9350KF and any other CPU regardless of core count. At $180 USD the 9350KF sits amongst the top value gaming and desktop CPUs currently available. Comparing the 4 thread 9350KF to AMD’s twice as expensive 16 thread Ryzen 3700X shows that the 9350KF wins hands down in all five of today’s most popular games. The only other CPUs worth considering for unbeatable gaming performance are the 9600K or 9600KF which have 50% more, equally fast cores, for less than 25% more money.  [Nov '19 CPUPro]

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 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 3700X only has a small real world gaming advantage over the entry level 4-core, 4-thread Intel Core i3-9100F. At $320 USD, the 3700X offers reasonable value for purely workstation tasks such as film production but streamers should look elsewhere. Streaming with dedicated hardware such as NVENC or a separate stream PC will nearly always result in fewer dropped frames. [Jul '19 CPUPro]
