We’ve seen many synthetic benchmarks of the AMD Ryzen 3000 chips in the recent past, but not many real-world or game benchmarks. Today, @Komachi shared the Ashes of the Singularity scores of the Ryzen 7 3700X and the Ryzen 9 3900X, and we have gotten a chance to compare it to Intel’s existing 8th Gen Core i7-8700K. Let’s dig in.
Ryzen 5 3600, Ryzen 7 3700X & Ryzen 9 3900X: Ashes of the Singularity
At first sight, these are outright misleading, but on careful analysis, you can get a good idea of how the Ryzen 3000 chips will perform in games. These results are a bit too much to take in. So look closely. The Core i7-8700K is quite a bit faster than the Ryzen 7 3700X at 1080p (high), but we’re not sure whether both the 1080 Ti’s are running at the same frequencies, so don’t take these results as final.
However, the fact that the RTX 2080 Ti/Ryzen 9 3900X setup is slower than the Intel i7/NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti combo is surprising, to say the least. We’re not sure if this will change as the CPUs are launched after two days via game/driver update but one thing can be said for sure. The Coffee Lake parts will continue to perform on the same level as the Zen 2 chips (at least) in gaming.
As I’m sure you’ve already noticed, the Ryzen 6 3600 is paired with a Radeon RX 5700 XT, but its score is crippled by the hex-core CPU, so we can’t make a proper comparison.
