The Ryzen 7 3700X is one of the few Matisse chips that haven’t been getting that much attention from media outlets, and considering that it fits somewhere in the upper mid-range segment it’s not hard to imagine why. So to make up for that we are sharing the Geekbench score of the 3700X and compare it to Intel’s competing 9th Gen processors, and see how the mainstream Ryzen flagship holds up:
On putting the 3rd Gen Ryzen 7 side by side against the Intel Core i9-9900K, the difference in the multi-score is almost negligible, while the single core performance is a tad bit higher in case of the latter (given its high single core boost).
The i9 yields 6,220 points in the single
You can ultimately draw two conclusions from this benchmark. Intel’s higher-end 9th gen CPUs will still be quite viable in single threaded workloads like gaming, but the multi-threaded charts will be dominated by the Zen 2 processors. I’m optimistic about the 3800X and the 3900X as they have relatively higher clocks, so I expect them to keep up with their blue competitors in the single-core tests as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
