AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 8-Core Processor In-Depth Review!

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X : Content Creation Performance

3D Rendering Speed – CINEBENCH R20

CINEBENCH R20 is a real-world 3D rendering benchmark based on the MAXON Cinema 4D animation software.

It is a great way to accurately determine the actual performance of a processor in 3D content creation.

This new version uses a much larger and more complex test scene than CINEBENCH R15, requiring about 8X more computational power and 4X more memory to render.

 

CINEBENCH R20 Single Core Performance

This Single Core test is not reflective of real world performance, but it is useful to find out the performance of the individual core.

On paper, the Ryzen 7 3700X is almost similar to the Ryzen 7 2700X, but we can see that it has 17.3% better single-core performance!

In fact, it was 8.3% faster than the Intel Core i7-8700K, which has higher base and boost clock speed!

 

CINEBENCH R20 Multi Core Performance

The Multi Core test shows the processor’s real-world 3D rendering performance.

The Ryzen 7 3700X was 21.8% faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X, and a whopping 34.5% faster than the Ryzen 7 1800X, even though they are all 8-core, 16-thread processors.

This clearly demonstrates the improvement in microarchitecture throughout the generations.

 

Multi-Threading Boost

This is not a CINEBENCH benchmark result. The Multi-Threading Boost is our calculation of the performance boost that the processor’s Multi-Threading capability provides. It is based on the MP Ratio and the number of physical cores.

Due to their long experience with SMT (Simultaneous Multi-Threading) technology, Intel still has the edge, with the Core i7-8700K delivering a 25% boost.

The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X did well though, improving on the Ryzen 7 1800X by 6%, and the Ryzen 7 2700X by 31%.

 

Video Transcoding Speed – HandBrake

HandBrake is a free, open-source video transcoding utility, which converts a video file from one resolution / format to another.

As you can imagine, it’s very compute-intensive, which makes it a great benchmark for multi-core processors.

In our test, we converted a 4K video of 1.3 GB in size into a 1080p video (HQ1080p30).

The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X was excellent in this test, transcoding the video 35 seconds (18%) faster than the next best processor – the Ryzen 7 2700X.

It was also almost 50% faster than the Ryzen 7 1800X – a first generation 8-core Ryzen processor!

 

Radial Blur Speed – Photoshop CC 14

The radial blur filter adds the perception of motion to a picture. This is a compute-intensive operation that benefits from multiple processing cores.

This radial blur test was performed on a single 13.5 megapixel photo, with a filesize of 4,910,867 bytes.

Yet another great example of how much faster the Zen 2 microarchitecture is, compared to the Zen+ and Zen microarchitectures.

The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X is 11% faster than the Ryzen 7 2700X, and a whopping 29% faster than the Ryzen 7 1800X.

It is also just over 50% faster than the Core i7-8700K, which we must note is a 6-core, 12-thread processor.
