  1. I built 4 systems for people using the 3700X. I was really hoping there would be a 5700X. Or they could drop the price on the 5800X, that would work too. 3700X and 5800X are both good CPUs, but the superiority of Zen 3 really shines through. I wasn’t expecting an article like this, nice surprise, thanks Brent.

  2. I’m on a 5800x for my gaming PC. Very happy. I came from a 3800x. Which seems silly, but who cares. HAHA

  3. Cool to see a side by side between the two. I had considered upgrading to a 5800X, but think I’ll hold on to my 3700X for a couple more years. At 1440P the gaming difference is probably 2-5%, so it really doesn’t make sense.

    Curious, why was PBO not enabled for the 3700X?

  4. So basically for gaming at ultra / 4K it is worthless to upgrade, thanks for that, now my itch to replace my 3700x is completely gone.

    My thoughts exactly.

  6. It was a very nice incremental upgrade. The biggest benefits IMO were better RAM compatibility / higher RAM clocks, but the higher power envelope and clock speeds were nice.

    I wouldn’t see it as a necessary upgrading coming from Zen2+ either, but if you were on anything older (Haswell, for me), it was a very nice boost.

  7. I made the change from the 3700X to the 5800X and have enjoyed every single bit of improvements so far.

    Yeah.. That’s why I left my 3700X at home, and went with the upgrade for the work machine. I am noticing a good performance boost for my work applications for sure.
