The AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is the upcoming top of the line CPU from AMD that features 12 cores and 24 threads. At the moment, the top of the line Intel 9900K only offers 8 cores and 16 threads. This is why the announcement of the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is so huge. Here we have some leaked benchmarks of the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X and the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X.
AMD has provided some official numbers showing how the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X beats the 9900K. It is not surprising that the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is able to do so keeping in mind the additional cores and threads but you can check out the numbers below:
Interestingly the similar spec Intel 9920X costs around $1200. The AMD Ryzen 9 3900X on the other hand, will be available on July 7th and will cost $500. That is great value for money.
AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, Ryzen 7 3700X Benchmarks
The above benchmarks are official numbers but we have some leaked AMD Ryzen 9 3900X Benchmarks as well. You can check out the numbers below:
It is worth mentioning that the boost clock is lower than 4.3 GHz in the leaked benchmarks. AMD claims that the Ryzen 9 3900X will be able to hit a max boost clock of 4.6 GHz. This could mean that performance at launch will be better, with proper driver and BIOS support. With that in mind, do take these numbers with a grain of salt.
Next, we have some benchmarks of the Ryzen 7 3700X. This is an 8 core, 16 thread CPU. You can check out the leaked benchmarks of the CPU below:
AMD claims that the CPU will have a max boost clock fo 4.4 GHz and that is what we are seeing here. AMD claims that the performance of the CPU will be similar to the Intel 9700K and that seems to be the case from these numbers.
AMD has made a great comeback and is building on top of it. This is the 3rd generation of Ryzen that is based on the 7nm process and Zen 2 architecture. AMD is an actual threat to Intel and in a leaked memo, Intel actually admitted that these CPUs could beat Intel 9th generation CPUs. That is what we are seeing here.
All things considered, Intel claims to have a great strategy and roadmap to take on AMD Ryzen. How well that plays out is something only time will tell.
