The upcoming 7nm Ryzen 3000 CPUs are on par with 9th gen Intel CPUs in single-core performance, much faster in multi-core
For the past few weeks we have seen lot of benchmarks and leaks that suggests the fact that Ryzen 3000 CPUs are much powerful from the last gen especially in single-core performance which eventually boosts gaming performance.
While in multi-threaded performance, these CPUs have ripped off Intel in various benchmarks and proved its worth for workstation and productivity purposes.
The Zen 2 architecture has helped AMD to make its new 7nm CPUs much better through its improved IPC, cache memory, floating-point performance and higher clock speeds.
On an average we see these new chips to be 2-3% faster than its nearest Intel competitors but we have exceptions like the Ryzen 5 3600 which even challenges its $150 more priced i7-9700K in single-core performance.
So, apart from being fast, these CPUs are efficient as well because of the 7nm process and we can expect better-overclocking capabilities which we can only see after the launch.
Another leaked benchmark from TUM_APISAK suggests that the Ryzen 7 3700X beats the Intel Core i7-9700K in single-core scores by a small margin, and in the multi-threaded performance the AMD CPU gives provides 35% better speed.
In the gaming scores, the Ryzen 7 3700X beats the i7-9700K by 4% and in workstation scores the AMD CPU leads by 23%.
In Passmark scores, the Ryzen 7 3700X looks to be as fast as the $484 Core i9-9900K CPU. While in the single-core scores, this Zen 2 just lags behind the Intel CPU by inches and also we see that the Ryzen 7 3700X beats last year’s star – the i7-8700K.
So one thing we can conclude from these various benchmarks that this time’s competition is even more intense and we can expect these new CPUs to get more sales due to its modern chipset, higher multi-core performance and neck-to-neck gaming performance with the Intel counterparts.
The final unveiling and availability of these CPUs is scheduled tomorrow and then we can officially check how these CPUs eventually perform in real-world scenarios. Here the price-to-performance ratio will play a much bigger role which ultimately will determine the fate of the Ryzen 3000 CPUs.
