The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X is an 8C/16T part that runs at higher clocks than the previous generation’s R7 2700X, making for an interesting comparison versus AMD’s own predecessor. Critically, the R5 3600 also falls into territory of “good enough for gaming,” which starts putting pressure on the 3700X by AMD’s own product; that said, the 3700X does have some key advantages, like additional thread count for massive uplift in multithreaded production workloads (e.g. Blender), all shown in today’s review. These benchmarks look at the R7 3700X vs. the i7-9700K, AMD R5 3600, and AMD R9 3900X, alongside previous AMD Ryzen and Intel CPUs. Our goal is to look at the best CPUs for gaming (standalone), production / workstation (standalone), and overall balance (mixed workload).
