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

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X : Our Verdict + Award, Price + Availability

AMD Ryzen 7 3700X – Our Verdict + Award!

The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X is not just an improved version of the last-generation Ryzen 7 2700X processor.

Built around the new Zen 2 microarchitecture, it uses a new chiplet design which combines 7 nm and 12 nm fabrication technologies to deliver a more powerful, and power-efficient processor at a great price point.

  • AMD Ryzen 7 3700X CPU underside

The end result? Significantly better single-core and multi-core performance, which can deliver really surprising boosts in gaming performance.

The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X debuts at the same price point as the Ryzen 7 2700X – US$329, and is bundled with the same Wraith Prism cooler.

This makes it a very compelling option for those who want the best of both worlds – gaming and content creation performance – at an affordable price point.

What if you currently own an older AMD Ryzen system?

  • If it uses a first-generation AMD Ryzen 7 processor like the Ryzen 7 1800X, upgrading to the Ryzen 7 3700X will give you a big 30-50% boost in gaming and content creation performance.
  • If it uses a second-generation AMD Ryzen 7 processor like the Ryzen 7 2700X, upgrading to the Ryzen 7 3700X will give you a 10-20% boost in gaming and content creation performance.

And here is a BIG ADVANTAGE for existing Ryzen users – the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X is compatible with all existing AMD 400-series (and some 300-series) motherboards with a BIOS update. This makes it a very affordable upgrade option.

For all these reasons, we gladly give the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X processor our Editor’s Choice Award. Great job, AMD!
