Man, the 3800x looks really disappointing against the 3700x ($80 doesn't seem to get you anything). On the plus side, everything seems like a solid upgrade from the 1800x.

Seems to be just like the 3600/3600X. No significant difference to justify the extra price.

Makes sense that it wouldn't be any faster for games than the 3700x. The clock speed is almost the same and there are just no games that exist that are going to use enough threads to show a difference between the 3700x and 3800x.

That said, I would still get the 3800x over the 3700x because the next consoles will have 8 core 16 thread CPUs and I wouldn't want to get anything less than what a next gen console will have.

The 3700X and 3800X have the same cores and threads (and cache). The only difference is lower base clocks for the 3700X, and higher boost clocks for the 3800X. But since the Ryzen 3000 (so far) are having trouble going 4.3-4.4GHz, those two are almost equal.

They're using a H115i closed loop cooler, which kind of defeats the additional boost potential.


$80 could get you a really nice waterblock or top end air cooler for the R7 3700X.

I talked about this in another thread, but IMO, as an early adopter you are paying more for a binned chip with the 3800X. Early on the best silicon will be used in the most demanding CPU’s, later on, the lower end chips will outsell the higher end ones (especially to PC manufacturers) and you can often win the silicon lotto and a cheaper chip will have higher quality silicon; do to supply and demand. Some might say the TDP is what is making the difference, yes, but the silicon has to behave and scale with the higher voltages/TDP, so it still makes it better silicon. I think once we see some stability in BIOS’s, WHEA problems are addressed and AGESA is tuned, the 3800X will have considerable headroom over early 3700’s. Again, that’s my opinion, but I think it is much closer to fact that the 3800’s are binned.

Oh right, they are both the same core count. Kinda makes it odd that the 3800x even exists.

It's to make slides saying they beat the i9-9900K stock vs stock...

Fake slides.
