AMD Ryzen 7 3800X Review

Amongst the new Ryzen CPU releases is the eight core Ryzen 7 3800X and we see how it compares to the other 3rd Generation processors.


AMD Ryzen 7 3800X Review

It's a shame AMD weren't able to eek higher clock speeds out of this gen.
If the 3800x boosted to 4.6 it would probably have been a more agreeable step-above the 3700x.

I must admit that I find it intensely annoying that these Ryzen 3700/3800's beat my 9900K in Cinebench.


..It's become an unscratchable itch of irritation.:D

Yes but 9900K at 5GHz still beats them in pretty much everything else. I really like this AMD release, but they are still just one step behind.

Not hardly, my 3900x stomps all over a 9900K in any multi-threaded application, and even in games is now a wash between them in any practical sense. That's without forcing an overclock. Intel is now the one behind the eight-ball and they know it.

Epyc "Rome" in the server space and the new soon to be released Threadripper 2 for HEDT will be another kick in the pants.

The coolest thing for me is I just flashed a new bios to my Crosshair VI Hero X370 and dropped in a new 3900X, no other expense involved.

You actually believe that? Wow.

The only thing Intel have left is clock speed. And that's only because they're billions into trying to shrink. Which leads me onto the next bit. With big shrinks will come clock drops. That is why they haven't released any desktop parts yet. What they gain in shrinks and improvements may carry a penalty.

per perf they're getting smashed all over the place. The only thing they have left is clock speed and 1080p gaming, which even on consoles is becoming a thing of the past, with Control (hailed as the beginning of a new era in game graphics) running at 1440p upscaling to 4k.

1080p will become a distant memory when the next gen if consoles come out and TV prices keep falling.

There may even come a point where games may need to be downscaled to 1080p or lose detail to be displayed at that Res.

I think that zen has really caught Intel with their pants down.
Yes the 9900k is still one hell of a processor but when you look at this CPU in particular its trading blows, stock with a CPU that is 130 more expensive in every way. Imagine where it would be if AMD had been on this node for as long as Intel has been on 14nm and pretty much the same architecture for even longer.
If the next gen AMD can speed up the infinity alongside the actual clocks, as they should be able to once this node has matured a bit, Intel may struggle to compete without dropping their margins significantly. Its a great time to be in the market for hardware, the only thing that worries me is how quickly i expect this to evolve now we have a competitive battle ground.
For the majority of the last decade quad cores were where it was at, i wonder how long it will be until a consumer CPU is 64 cores. Tell me 5 years ago that there would a 12 core as a mainstream part and i would not have believed you.

maybe he is only looking at userbenchmark.com.. you know 4 cores is all you need.

Maybe his primary use is gaming, and as such focuses on gaming benchmarks.
