AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Processor Review

The flagship processor for AMD’s 2nd generation Ryzen processors was the Ryzen 7 2700X. For the Ryzen 3000 series we of course have the Ryzen 9 processors, which are really targeted towards the high-end. The Ryzen 7 3000 series is made up of two chips, the Ryzen 7 3800X and Ryzen 7 3700X. Both are 8-core, 16-thread parts with 36 MB of AMD GameCache. The Ryzen 7 3800X has a base clock of 3.9 GHz and boosts all the way up to 4.5 GHz whereas the Ryzen 7 3700X has a base clock of 3.6 GHz and boosts up to 4.4 GHz. The chips are only $70 apart too, at $399 for the Ryzen 7 3800X and $329 for the Ryzen 7 3700X. Today we will be checking out the Ryzen 7 3700X. We will not only be testing it against previous Ryzen processors, but Intel processors as well. Let’s take a look!

Packaging

AMD has revised their packaging slightly since last generation. While you have the same Ryzen logo on the front of the box, the background is different, giving the box a more distinct look.

On the side of the box we have information on the included Wraith Prism RGB cooler. Moving to the other side we actually get a view of our processor.
