Ryzen 7 3700X Matches i9-9900K; Ryzen 9 3900X Bests Threadripper 2950X

The first results of AMD Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 9 3900X CPUs have appeared and on the 3DMark benchmark website. Both chipsets are scheduled to go on sale on July 7. The weaker model of the two matches the performance of Intel Core i9-9900K and the stronger that of the Threadripper 2950X, which has 4 cores more.

Ryze, ryze baby....

We are only a few days away from the moment when the new AMD Ryzen 3000 series CPU will be available for sale. On the same day, i.e. July 7, the embargo on the publication of reviews of new chipsets will also end. However, their first benchmark results, sent by people who received pre-premiere chips and checked their performance, are already in 3DMark's database.

Come on, tell us the results already.

The 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X is faster than the 16-core Threadripper 2950X, while the 7 3700X looks similar to the Core i9-9900K, but definitely beats the Core i9-9900K. The picture below shows a comparison of AMD and Intel CPU parameters. There is one more model missing - the Ryzen 9 3950X, which is to be the most powerful processor aimed at a wide range of customers and will be available on the market a little later - in September.

But let's go back to the results and start with Ryzen 7 3700X, which in comparison with the i9-9900K, prepared by, is as follows:

3DMark Firestrike Extreme

  1. Intel Core i9-9900K: 24596
  2. AMD Ryzen 7 3700X: 25011

3DMark Cloud Gate

  1. Intel Core i9-9900K: 18804
  2. AMD Ryzen 7 3700X: 17484

3DMark Ice Storm Extreme

  1. Intel Core i9-9900K: 74107
  2. AMD Ryzen 7 3700X: 82831

3DMark Night Raid

  1. Intel Core i9-9900K: 15782
  2. AMD Ryzen 7 3700X: 13487

The results speak for themselves - a cheaper AMD processor with a TDP of 65 W can compete with Intel's Core i9-9900K (TDP 95 W). Oh, these are hard times for Intel...

Meanwhile, the first 12-core gaming CPU - the Ryzen 9 3900X - sets the bar even higher. The CPU scored 29777 points in Fire Strike Extreme benchmark, which is a result better than Intel's top score (by over 5000 points) and Ryzen Threadripper 2950X's (by nearly 2000 points).
