$399 AMD Ryzen 7 3800X Faster than $484 Intel Core i9-9900K in Geekbench

We’ve already seen the Geekbench scores of the 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X and the hex-core Ryzen 5 3600 and I can say with a good deal of certainty that you’ll probably want to check them out if you skipped the last few upgrade cycles. The former is the fastest consumer CPU ever, with 32-threads and an astounding 72 MB of cache, while the latter beats just about every CPU in the sub-$300 range while costing just $199. Today, we have the Geekbench score of the Ryzen 7 3800X that lies in between these two SKUs with a price tag of $399 and it seems to be giving the Intel Core i9-9900K a run for its money.

As expected, the 3800X is a bit slower than Intel’s eight-core flagship in the single-core test, but in the multi-core benchmark, manages to beat it, all the while costing almost $100 less. The CPU model is the same, AMD Myrtle which appears to be in use for all the higher-end Matisse parts. The Ryzen 7 3800X is clocked at a base clock of 3.9GHz and a boost of 4.47GHz, while the i9 runs at a single-core boost of 5GHz+, explaining the delta in the SC score.

This has pretty much become the norm nowadays. Every Zen 2 chip is faster than the competing Intel product. It’ll be interesting to see what Intel’s response will be once the Ryzen 3000 lineup debuts on 7th July. In case you didn’t know, AMD has moved to the 7nm node while Intel is still stuck on the 14nm, with troubling reports of the upcoming 10nm processors.

I love computer hardware and RPGs, and those two things are what drove me to start TechQuila. Other than that most of my time goes into reading psychology, writing (and reading) dark poetry and playing games.
