    3900x (no smt) vs 9900k(HT enabled) looks like the gap closes significantly. Would like to see your numbers on this. Maybe a new video? Possible 9800x & 9700x no smt as well.

    The price difference between the 3800x and the 3700x is almost nothing in my country.

    Im upgrading from a E5-1660 v2 and was able to get a R7 3800x for $260 on black friday.

    The difference in price was very small during black friday. There is not a huge difference in stock performance but I believe the OC stability of 3800x is higher. Simply higher binning perhaps. Maybe im wrong

    I dunno most 3700xs i see only can only get 4200-4300"maybe 4300 but with high voltage" TOPS all core overclock.. I can get 4470 all core on my 3800x with 1.34v. I paid $330 for my 3800x 3 months ago. To be honest i feel that extra 150-200mhz was worth it to me, even though i probably wont see it in gaming. I dont care, the 3900x is an even bigger waste yet all i see is you at Gamers nexus reviewing with that cpu 24/7

    but your comparing a 3800x at 4.1 volts and a better silicon chip 3700x at 1.35 volts . my 3800x runs at 1.26 volts at 4.348 ghtz and i found any voltage higher than that to get better oc degrades performance. if you really want to compare the 2 run the 3800x on eco mode vs the 3700x and show the mode drops the 3800x down to 65watts making it the same as the 3700x , why didnt you do that ?

    It's the same bloody thing. The frame rates match up half the time which is kind of hilarious. The 3800x is priced lower than the 3700x at the moment, but that's only because the 3700x is out of stock. If the 3700x comes back in stock at a lower price, I'll end up buying that instead. The performance difference is too negligible for me a give a flying fuck about the 3800x.

    Yet here we are 4 months after this review and I just bought a 3800X. It's the same price as the 3700X at launch($329). Those Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales yo. Funny enough you can get a 3700X for $299 as of this writing(1 Dec 2019). $70 off or $20 off. You choose.

    Same. Just bought a 3800x with a free deepcool gammaxx 400 cooler for the same price as a 3700x. Plus since nowadays I basically run my PC at stock speeds for daily use, it makes even more sense.

  19. SternLX

    SternLXIl y a 5 jours

    Same price as the 3700X at launch for a 1.5-2.0% avg gain overall. No other reason.



    What's the advantage in your mind of the 3800x? His points remain the same. Same goes for 3600 vs 3600x.

    I got my 3800x on a black Friday deal that listed it cheaper than the 3700x on its own black Friday sale. Lucky me i guess.

    Walmart has the 3700X for $300 and amazon has it for $310. Amazon has the 3800X for $330. $30 difference but 3800X comes with both Outer Worlds and Borderlands 3(with 3700X, you have to choose 1 of the 2).

    Now interestingly enough, there is 3800x in black friday sales going for the same price as 3700x lol. So I guess I am in a rare scenario where I would not waste money opting for 3800x instead of 3700x Hahaa.

    AMD has simultaneous multi-threading. Intel has hyper-threading. They both have the same effect or creating another thread for each core (not exactly, but basically the same effect)

    I ended up with a 3700X because I run Adobe Premier Elements. Premier Elements is tough on just about any processor, in my experience. My old, reliable Intel i5 3570 just can't hack it. The r7 3500X is adequate, and quite a bit better at running the application than the r5 2700. Depending on my budget, I may upgrade to a 3950X rather than spend $50.00 per month for a Premier Pro subscription. Sometimes, you have to think about the more powerful rototiller before you consider hiring someone else to do the garden at a significantly higher cost. Hence, the slightly more powerful processor to save a bit of money in the long run.

    @YY8811 3800x also comes with one more game which you can probably sell for $20-30, so 3800x is at most $10 more than 3700x.

    close yur eyes n get the 3800x it is better binning higher base clocks higher oc clocks it has better silicon it runs is the second best cpu after 3900x...the above review was made when the price difference was $70...but now its a different doesnt makes any sense to buy the 3700x now.....

    Plus you get an extra game with the 3800x. I just bought a 3700x today from microcenter but I'm seriously considering returning it and getting the 3800x for the extra game. It's only 20-30 bucks.

    while these 2 cpus are great.. if all you do is game, save even more money and get a 3600. honestly even when we see at the frame charts is really not far behind the 3700x and 3800x.. really making the 3600 the best choice of the 3 for pure gaming purpose. it can even do streaming fine, tho at 720p. so i imagin if you want to do 1080p streaming ud need the 3700x the more costly 3900x.. you really dont need all those cores for gaming. so if you arent gonna stream either. and just game, watch movies/series or voice chat, the small performance increase in gaming only does not validate a 3700x/3800x imo
