$329 AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Beats $999 Intel Core i9-9900X

Yesterday, we saw the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X perform on par with Intel’s Core i9-9900K in Geekbench. No surprise, considering the Zen 2 CPUs’ advantage in multi-threaded workloads, but it once again proved that Intel’s CPUs are overpriced and by quite a bit. Today, we’ve gotten our hands on the PassMark benchmark of the 3rd Gen Ryzen 7 and can say it looks even better.

The Ryzen 7 3700X and the Intel Core i9-9900X in the above comparison are running at almost identical clocks with the Ryzen part two cores short. Despite that however, it beats the Core i9 by more than 500 points. Furthermore, it does this while consuming less than half as much power, thanks to the new 7nm node from TSMC. The AMD Zen 2 chip draws 65W for eight cores and sixteen threads and scores 23,557 while the Intel Skylake X part draws 165W to fuel ten cores and twelve threads and obtains a score of 23,041.

The single core performance is also surprisingly in favor of the Ryzen 7 3800X. This is because the Core i9-9900X is running at the same frequency, unlike the 9900K which pushes 5GHz plus on a single core. The single-thread rating is 2,876 for the 3700X and 2,494 for the 9900X. The yearly running power cost is $30 for the Intel chip while the Ryzen 7 is limited to just $11.86 (almost a third).

Last but not least, let’s consider the price. The Ryzen 7 3700X costs $329 while the Core i9-9900X is priced at a whopping $999. That’s three times as much compared to the Zen 2 CPU.

If you look at the other competing processors, the i9-9900K is still slower in the multi-threaded test but manages to surpass the 3700X in the single-threaded benchmark, courtesy of its high operating frequencies. The Ryzen 7 3700 is approximately 35% faster than its predecessor (2700X) in the single-core bench and almost 40% faster when you consider the overall scores. Impressive stuff!
