    Thank you Paul! Looks like I will get that Ryzen 3 16 core at some point, wins in single-thread performance over my r7 1700.

      which one you would chose for cad 2/3d (autocad,inventor,solidworks etc.) and gaming on 1080p or 1440p on 144hz?

            I came here looking for some positive reinforcement after I already ordered a 3700x and gamers Nexus weren't particularly impressed with the chip.

            Thank you for reassuring me.

                      Finally retired my old Sandy Bridge i5 2500K, with the Ryzen 3700X. Arrives in two days. Binge-watching these benchmark videos 'til it arrives! w00t

                        The 3700x is a great CPU. It has everything to crush the others, performance, power, price. I am in the process of building a new PC since my current one is pretty old (still using FM2+) was about to lose my mind and buying the 3900x, but it seams to me the 3700x is the clear winner is many tests I see on YT.

                        Thank you for sharing Paul.

                          Hi Paul. Nice video. I am not a gamer. Any chance that you might be testing photoshop and lightroom between the Ryzen 7 3x00X and intel i7-9700 CPUs?

                              you have to overclock my 3700x hit 4.4ghz on all core at 1.4 volt but you need aftermark cooler for that voltage

                              Help me please?! Hello Paul, I liked the comparison video. But I was unsure, would the best processor be the 9700k or the 3800x to work with video editing? I want to equip with an RTX 2060, 16gb 3000mhz ram, ssd and hd. tks - bye Brasil

                                    Broadwell architecture,same one Intel used in 15' it's been handed down to AMD tactically,Intel realized that almost all in the gaming world which makes up about 60% of pc users wouldn't be using their PC's for editing and workstation,no money there for Intel,that's why they aren't going crazy with core count or threads,we know,they know, that a high powered simple cpu will always yield maximum gaming performance.AMD is sucking in people that rely on marketing hype for their decisions,Intel is watching and laughing because they know when everyone catches on and the hammer falls that they will retain their loyal gaming customers while making gradual and realistic future designs.

                                      You are completely ignoring anything outside of gaming. I do a lot of code compiling at work and my 3900x’s 32 threads/16 cores blasts through everything I do. Intel’s competitor for such tasks is over £1000. It’s not all about gaming.

                                    I am enjoying the fact that AMD is making water cooling look a bit silly unless it's for noise reduction. That kinda came and went it looks like....well unless you are still using Intel.

                                          intel wins again. Higher fps in games. Who cares about 'benchmarks' like cinebench? Real world application is what matters. Intel still has more fps for lower price

                                            That was a shit ton of numbers, providing us with good info. I guess the only question now, which kid do I sell to get both cpu and gpu.... maybe sell both and i could get an x570 too....🐒

                                              I watch this review and the subscribe button which states 1M subs and I'm in awe. This is a horrible predisposed product review. Even the stats where the 3900x was almost 30% better he found a way to make the Intel sound equiv. Maybe you should just not review hardware, Paul.

Good competition is always good. Makes the price drop. The 2700x is so much cheaper where I’m at. Sadly the 3900x is not available at my micro center but I’ve tested both platforms and rarely notice a big difference between the two companies. Granted Intel still has a edge and both companies are innovating.

With Intel your room will be nice and toasty during the winter whereas with AMD Ryzen 3000 you will actually have to turn on the heat to stay warm.

I'm just not sure if this is normal. you got a lower heat-output and you clocked your CPU higher than me. I'm using 1.3V clocked at 4.1 ghz.

Specifically covering actual testing temperatures of the chips. I just helped my friend build his first pc. He lives in California, I'm in Ohio. He had temps that sounded really high to me, and trying to find information has really been a nightmare. So many gaming/workload benchmark video's out there, none that really touch thermals. Thank you for doing a good job, and the content!
