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 singlecore test and 34,143 in the multi-core. The Ryzen 7 3700X achieves 5,714 and 33,841 points in the single and multi-core tests, respectively. As you can see, the multi-core scores put the $484 Intel chip on par with the $329 AMD Matisse part, but in the SC test, there’s still a deficit, and keeping the price gap in mind, it’s not really disappointing. In fact, the Ryzen 3000 parts come with a soldered IHS (integrated heat spreader), so they should overclock rather well, unlike the Coffee Lake chips that run hot even at stock clocks.

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.
