AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT Review - Why Is It Still Popular?

    Ryzen 7 3800XT is a globally famous gaming CPU with 7nm Zen 2 architecture. It started to gain popularity from the launch date. Even today, while the internet is full of Ryzen 5000 news, we see the Ryzen 7 3800XT in the top-selling desktop CPU lists on various web sites. 

    In the last three years, since the release of the first Ryzen, changes in the desktop processor market have been much more productive. AMD has imposed a nuclear race on the competitor. In some cases, some say Ryzen desktop CPUs are winning the race. Of course, there’s still a fierce competition and it’s not easy to call one of them a true winner but from the Ryzen perspective, things are going well so far. Offering more cores for relatively cheaper prices is one of the key factors here for AMD. 

    The Ryzen 7 3800XT, as a desktop CPU, almost completely fits in the description above. 

    So, what are the key specifications of the Ryzen 7 3800XT?

Ryzen 7 3800XT Specifications

    So, the main characteristics of the Ryzen 7 3800XT shows that it is a powerful enough gaming CPU when combined with a mid to high-range graphics card. It is basically an 8-core CPU with support for important SMT technology on the Matisse core. Additionally, it is equipped with 32 MB of L3 cache memory. It utilizes the PCIe 4.0 technology, which is good for both current and the future gaming system setups.

AMD Ryzen 7 2700X - 12 nm Pinnacle Ridge 

    Perhaps the most important improvement for the Ryzen 7 2700X is a desktop CPU with a redesigned new Zen+ architecture with 12 nm Pinnacle Ridge. Also, the Ryzen 5 2600, 2600X, and Ryzen 7 2700 have the same advancement compared to previous generations. Maybe that’s the main reason for those processors to be still in the bestseller lists on different platforms both regionally and globally. And the Ryzen 7 2700X is no different. You can still see its popularity by looking at those lists. 

Ryzen 7 2700X Specifications 

    The Ryzen 7 2700X is a desktop CPU that is still chosen for gaming purposes. It is, of course, relatively older. Therefore the architecture and technology are not brand-new. Yet, it still has some perks to lean on. For example; it has important peripherals and extensions like the Precision Boost 2 and Extended Frequency Range 2 (XFR) and the Simultaneous MultiThreading Technology (SMT). 

    From the budget perspective, you have a Wraith Prism with RGB LED in the R7 2700X package. 

Key Features 

    Of course, the essentials are important. 

    AMD Ryzen 7 2700X has 8-cores and 16-threads. The base frequency is 3.7 GHz. and the frequency for the max boost is 4.3 GHz. There’s also a 16 MB of L3 cache and 2 MB of L2 cache.

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X - Among The Best Seller Desktop CPUs Globally

    Amongst the flooding news about the new Ryzen 5000 Series, there are still some quite popular previous-gen CPUs like the Ryzen 7 3700X. Mainly the impacting factor is the budget concerns. Yet, the innovative and promising design of the Ryzen 7 3700X also plays a vital role. It is not the most popular desktop CPU as of 2020 but from the day it has launched, we are used to seeing it on the top positions of bestseller lists. 

    We all know that the launch of the first Zen architecture desktop and gaming CPUs was a milestone for the market and the company. After that time in 2016, AMD has shown some improvement for each year. By improvement, we mean new architectures and redesigns. Zen, Zen+, Zen2, and this year finally, the Zen 3 appeared on the market. 

    Today we will show you the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X processor, which comes to replace AMD Ryzen 7 2700X. Since then, it is thought to be the equivalent of the rival’s Core i7 9700K. You will know why the Ryzen 7 3700X is still among the best seller desktop gaming CPUs, even today. 

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Gaming CPU Specs

    First of all, this CPU is far from being called “outdated”. Firstly because it’s only been 1.5 years. Second, the key features of the CPU are completely futuristic. For example; you’ll have the PCIe 4.0 x16. 

    It may not be a Zen 3 processor but the Zen 2 Matisse has still a powerful and contemporary design to offer high performance. It uses the same 7 nm CMOS technology as the newly launched Zen 3 architecture. Actually, before the Zen 3 5000 Series, it was among the most popular gaming CPUs. And the architecture has kind of proved it is worth in that sense. 

    The Ryzen 7 3700X is an 8-core gaming CPU with 16 threads. With a base frequency of 3.6 GHz and a max boost of 4.4 GHz. It will offer decent AAA gaming, of course, with the help of a quality GPU. For example, AMD Radeon Navi 5700XT or Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti would be great combinations to go alongside the R7 3700X. Other than that, the 32MB L3 and 4 MB L2 cache are also important features to provide reduced latency and faster processing in general for any task.

AMD Ryzen 5 2600 vs AMD Ryzen 7 2700

AMD Ryzen 5 2600 vs AMD Ryzen 7 2700


 

AMD Ryzen 5 2600 vs AMD Ryzen 7 2700

    As we posted recently, AMD has updated its range of multi-core processors for the AM4 platform. The senior representatives of Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 tested in various benchmarks. Yet, many Ryzen 5 vs Ryzen 7 reviews mentioned that these both CPUs have a kind of interesting relation. They differ only in core-thread number, clock frequencies, and price, almost. The price makes Ryzen 5 2600 even a bit more interesting in terms of building a “budget PC setup”, because, unlike Intel, the AMD favors overclocking of any processor in the Ryzen family, so that different frequencies are only different by default, and in practice, they can become the same. 

    Of course, most of the users are reluctant to perform overclocking. But for a large chunk of PC enthusiasts, it seems advantageous. And the Ryzen 5 2600, like the Ryzen 5 2600X, is equipped with six dual-threaded cores - but in his case, the savings are even more relevant, because it is the "old" Ryzen 5 1600 is the cheapest solution with the "wheel configuration" 6/12. 

    So let’s take a closer look at these two.

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, 5900X, Ryzen 7 55800X and Ryzen 5 5600X

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, 5900X, Ryzen 7 55800X and Ryzen 5 5600X


 

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, 5900X, Ryzen 7 55800X and Ryzen 5 5600X

    Team Red’s long-awaited Ryzen 5000 series launched in October 2020. First of all, the microarchitecture improved from Zen 2 to Zen 3. And it brings various significant differences. Therefore, we can say that the new Ryzen 5000 processors, starting from the Ryzen 5 5600X to the Ryzen 9 5950X are noticeably outperforming their predecessors. This time, it is a little bit different than the previous two Zen architecture upgrades.

%19 Rise in IPC Performance and New CCX Design 

    Those two headlines are probably the most important improvements we see in the Ryzen 5000 series. Because they offer an increased performance even on the cheapest model of the family. And this time the increased performance is mostly related to the “single-core” performance. As many of you know, this was one of the weak spots of the company back in the day. And we were more used to seeing the focus directed at the core count. 

    However, after seeing the Ryzen 5000 reviews, we know that the picture is quite different now. The new CCX design provides more cache per core compared to the previous Ryzen gaming CPUs, It means we have reduced latency and high bandwidth thanks to the new 8-core design that grants access for 8-core clusters to the 32 MB cache. With all these renovations and the improvement in the Zen 3 architecture, they achieved an average of %19 IPC performance rise. 

    The innovation kept going for the Ryzen 5000 series. Therefore, we see a %24 more energy efficiency compared to the previous Ryzen processors. Additionally, the Ryzen 5000 family, on average, is around 2.8 times more efficient than the i9-10900K. 

    Let’s take a look...

Ryzen 9 5950X 

    Let’s start with the “Threadripper alternative”, titan-like Ryzen 9 59500X. As you understand by now, it is the most powerful member of the 5000 families. Some even consider it an alternative to the powerful Threadripper titan CPUs of the Ryzen. They are not necessarily wrong, though. Because we are talking about a 16/32 core design here. Additionally, the base clock speed is 3.4 GHz. and the max turbo is up to 4.9 GHz. And the L2 cache is 8 MB while the L3 is 64 MB.

Ryzen 9 5900X

    This is another stunning Ryzen 9 which has 16 cores and 24 threads. Of course, it has an L3 cache of 64 MB. The base clock speed is 3.7 GHz and the boost goes up to 4.8 GHz. Just looking at those two lines of info, you can say it is one of the best gaming CPUs ever launched by AMD. 

Ryzen 7 5800X

    The 8/16 design carries all the architectural advantages that the series has. And we are again seeing great frequency rates. 3.8 GHz - 4.7 GHz. The L3 cache is 32 MB. 

Ryzen 5 5600X

    The modest member of the family. But, in pricing, it is a little bit different than the predecessors. Yet, the Zen 3 architecture’s unique design has brought so much power to this Ryzen 5, too. It has a 6/12 design with a 32 MB cache. Besides, it is the only Ryzen 5000 CPU that comes with a cooler in the package.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X Review - Brand New CPU with 8-Core for High-End Gaming

    As many of you know, the Ryzen 5000 series newly launched. And one of the most attractive models from the new series is the Ryzen 7 5800X. That is, mainly because it is not the most expensive option among the others while it still has a stunning performance capability coming from its amazing specifications. Of course, it is not easy to decide which one is the best, as always. Some may think of price/performance more than anything while some others are just interested in building the highest performing system around a Ryzen 5000 series CPU. Yet, we can already say that the Ryzen 7 5800X meets the “elite gaming needs” you expect from a CPU. And it seems like it will continue to do the same for a long period. So, for some enthusiasts, this type of CPUs are considered a kind of investment as well. 

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X Gaming Processor Specifications

    First of all, this is a new processor that is based on Zen 3 7nm architecture. And AMD is improving the IPC whenever a new architecture is created. For example, we saw around a 50% rise in performance when the Zen/Zen+ architecture was launched. Again, with the development of Zen 2, we surely noticed the performance of the Ryzen CPUs getting better and better in many ways. Today, we see an overall increment of 19% IPC performance in the 5000 series, including the Ryzen 7 5800X. And of course, the gaming performance of the Ryzen 7 5800X is now significantly better than its predecessors. It is because we have a lot more powerful single-core experience now, compared to the previous models of the same Ryzen CPU line. Therefore, of course, that applies to general processing performance, as well. 

What does Ryzen 7 5800X have? 

    The R7 5800X is a CPU designed genuinely to offer higher FPS ratings and a better gaming experience, overall. Therefore, the specifications also make the CPU eligible for creator tasks such as encoding and rendering.

    The biggest change that the new Zen 3 microarchitecture has brought us is probably seeing the one 8-core CCX instead of two 4-core CCX. Before that, the four cores used 16 MB of the total L3 cache, which resulted in 2x 16 MB of L3 cache on the CCD. But now, with the Zen 3 architecture, AMD switched to a CCX with 8 cores that used 32 MB of shared L3 cache.

    The Ryzen 7 5800X processor uses 8 cores and 16 threads. The base clock frequency for the R7 5800X is 3.8 GHz. And with the max boost, it goes up to 4.7 GHz. The total cache size of the chip is 36 MB (32 MB L3 + 4MB L2). We see a TDP of 105W and a max temp of 90°C. And the PCI express version is 4.0. 

    The Ryzen 7 5800X also benefits from the contemporary extensions and technologies like the Precision Boost 2, SMT, and AMD Ryzen VR-Ready Premium.

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Review

    AMD Ryzen 7 3700X is basically another powerful CPU from the famous Zen family. Its high-core count and frequency allow users to run some of the most demanding tasks, including various games, smoothly. 

    When the 3000 Series was launched, we saw in the Ryzen family, the core count increased alongside the overall processing performance. AMD again managed to become a successful competitor for the rival with the release of this generation of Ryzen processors. Some of the users have already fallen in love with them for the excellent price/performance ratio, and AMD did not want to stop there. They wanted to keep improving. 

    The first processors with Zen microarchitecture were released in March 2017. Only two and a half years have passed till the launch of Ryzen 7 3700X Therefore, the third generation Ryzen we are talking about today is not just an advanced technological product, but also a significant change in topology and microarchitecture for the Zen family.

    In recent years, AMD takes noticeable steps to improve its product line. This way, the company is steadily increasing its share in the market. Thus, users’ opinions on AMD CPUs are also changing continuously now. Ryzen 7 3700X is one of the processors that had a positive impact on this opinion development. 

    AMD started selling AMD Ryzen 7 3700X on July 7, 2019, at the recommended price of $329. This is a Matisse (Zen 2) architecture desktop processor, primarily designed for high-end home systems. Therefore, it is eligible for mid to high range gaming. It also allows you to stream your gaming experience smoothly. And it is of course a quality choice for your daily work on the computer. It has 8 cores and 16 threads. It has 7 nm architecture. The base clock speed is a good 3.6 GHz. and you’ll get 4.4 GHz. max boost speed. There’s also no multiplier lock on this CPU, so for the serious enthusiasts, it’s good news. In terms of compatibility, it is a processor for AMD Socket AM4 with TDP 65W. It supports DDR4 Dual-channel memory.

AMD Ryzen 7 3800X Review 

    In the wake of newly launched Zen 3 processors, we still have some powerful previous generation CPUs. And the Ryzen 7 3800X is one of them. 

    Considering you are setting up a system around R7 3800X with quality parts, you are going to get a long-term high-performance. What does this mean? For example; for motherboards, you can use X570 and on that board, you can have a GPU like GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. And of course, you are going to need a DDR4 2x16 (32GB) memory to get the intended performance. 

    It is of course not as powerful as its more improved and renewed cousins however, everyone does not have the same budget to spare for a PC at the end of the day. With that being said, we should emphasize that the Ryzen 7 3800X is certainly not a middle or low-budget CPU but the brand new Ryzen 5000 series would probably make previous model prices go lower. Since the R7 3800X has a monstrous-like performance, you may not always need the newest product in the market. 

So what does the R7 3800X have to offer?

    First of all, it is simply one of the best-performing CPUs of AMD in terms of gaming. You can also see it will be an eligible choice for your future plans. For instance, R7 3800X has PCI version 4.0 which will become the mainstream version soon. And thanks to PCI 4.0, the GPUs and NVMe SSDs can communicate at double speed, compared to 3.0. 

    The most important and exciting part is the core and thread counts. AMD Ryzen 3800X has 8/16 core-thread formation. The base clock speed lays at 3.9 GHz, which is quite sufficient for many tasks even without the boost, and the boost frequency can go up to 4.5 GHz. And the cooling solution is also one of the best; Wraith PRISM.

AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT Review - Designed For Gaming

    Before giving some details, we are going to answer this question “Is Ryzen 7 3800XT good for gaming?”. Yes, absolutely. In fact, it is designed to meet your ultimate gaming goals. Besides, it is so powerful that it allows you to even stream what you play. So it is not only a gaming processor but also a CPU for streamers. 

    R7 3800XT is built on Zen 2 architecture. On July 7, 2019, AMD turned the CPU market around and started selling desktop processors with Zen 2 architecture. Therefore, it is faster, quieter, and more powerful than the previous Zen models. Also, Ryzen 7 3800XT comes with some additional features some are not found on regular 3000 series models. 

    The Ryzen 3000 series not only proved to be a good alternative to existing Intel processors but in some cases offered even more attractive features, such as a more core count with decent IPC performance. As a result, over the past year, AMD was able to seriously claim a place in the competition of the CPU market. Especially if we talk about the segment of solutions designed for enthusiasts and advanced users who build computers themselves. Here, we also see a quality cooling solution for overclocking lovers. But time does not stand still, and after a year AMD thought about making changes to the CPU model range that they offer to users. The need for this step has arisen in the light of the emergence of Comet Lake processors, which managed to demonstrate progress by adding additional cores/threads and the growth of clock frequencies. 

    Of course, AMD wanted to stay in the competition. And they launched the new XT models that are slightly more powerful than the X models. Thus, they were more capable to compete in the CPU market at least until the 4000 series were available. In other words, AMD clearly says that processors with the “XT” in the name are noticeably better optimized to work in applications that are highly relying on core and thread power. This means that you can't expect any noticeable improvements in energy efficiency from new processors, but they seem to be able to maintain stability at higher frequencies than their predecessors. 

R7 3800XT Specs

    The Zen 2 7nm gaming processor has 8 cores and 16 threads. We see a high base clock speed of 3.9 GHz. along with up to 4.7 GHz boost frequency. Seeing PCI 4.0 makes us happy in terms of general processing power and quick operation. The AM4 socket of the Ryzen 7 3800XT is compatible with the X570 and B550 motherboards.

Ryzen 7 4700G

AMD Ryzen 7 4700G Review 

First thing we can say about this CPU is that it is the flagship hybrid processor of the Renoir family in the AM4 version of the 4000 series.  The processor has 8 cores on Zen 2 architecture with multi-threading support, 8 MB of cache level 3 and a dual channel memory controller DDR-3200. The x86 cores operate at 3.6-4.45 GHz, and the nominal TDP level is 65 W. the Ryzen 7 4700G is based on the Zen 2 7nm architecture. This is certainly noticeably less than the 32 MB of L3 cache that the 8-core Ryzen 7 3800X has, but this is due to the monolithic nature of the chip, which uses a single chip rather than multiple chips under a single package like the Ryzen 3000 Matisse series.

Comparing the various online published results with the existing Ryzen processors, we see that the Ryzen 7 4700G corresponds to the Ryzen 7 3800X in terms of CPU performance, The Ryzen 7 3800X is an 8-core 16-stream CPU with 105W TDP, while the Ryzen 7 4700G is an 8-core and 16-stream CPU with 65W TDP. Thus, such energy efficiency for Ryzen 4000 Renoir family is truly impressive. In general, we see that the architecture of 4000 series provides a great advantage over their predecessors. 

Ryzen 7 4700G APU Itself Offers Entry Level GPU Performance

The graphics unit is a modified Vega architecture with 512 stream processors and 2.1 GHz frequency. Raw computing power is 2.15 Tflops, which is about the same level as the Radeon RX 460 desktop graphics card. Therefore, it also offers a performance similar to Nvidia GeForce GTX 950. Therefore, the OEM only processor would please the gamers of low-budget with this integrated graphics capability. But it is still not a great choice for pro gaming on the computer.
