[TECHSPOT] AMD Ryzen 3800X vs 3700X What's the difference ?


Recommended Posts

Just goes to show that AMD have already pushed the silicon virtually to its max at any rate. I did remember seeing the Silicon Lottery report and their results were nothing astonishing for Zen 2.

Yeah unless there was a dramatic change from Zen, there isn't much to be gained. It is how it is.


Which hey, is already a decent improvement from the 1st gen, especially to those of us that have Zen 1s that don't clock all that great (mine starts becoming a bit of a blast furnace past 3.9GHz).


Interesting that Silicon Lottery's voltage for a 3700X at 4.15GHz is what my 1700 needs to run 3.7GHz lol.

My 3700x falls right in line with a middle of the road silicon lotto chip for heavy avx loads. If you look at games, any difference practically vanishes. With PBO on +200 while gaming my chip does 4275 all core. Still hoping for ..a tad more.. from a bios update since I don't get advertised boosts, but whatever.


Honestly, given how tiny the difference is, I feel like they shouldn't even have bothered separating them. 3800x should be the 12/24 chip and 3900x should be the 16/32..


Here's hoping they drop a 4950x for AM4 on the updated node with a bit more headroom. I like the 3700x but it certainly wasn't necessary to spend as much as I did on an x570 board (aorus pro wifi). I bought this insanely over powered VRM for a chip that absolutely brick walls at around 115 watts !
