AMD Ryzen 9 3900X:
AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is the fastest processor from AMD. This processor has some amazing features and specs. What makes this processor so powerful is its cache memories and its speeds.
|Cinebench R23 (Single-Core)||1316|
|Cinebench R23 (Multi-Core)||18848|
For decent Gaming-Performance, you should make sure you are above 1000 Cinebench R23 Single-Core Points, and this processor just smashed the other processors in the new record-breaking scores of Cinebench R23 Single-Core 1316. In 3D rendering the higher the Multi-Core Score. The better the performance you will see. Anything above 20k+ Multi-Core Points will boost the performance and will render complex scenes in less time. And this processor scores 18848. This will also help in gaming. As most of you will know that the more the single cores scores are the faster will it open and close the applications. The multicore will also help in rendering and in gaming. This processor has the speeds of whapping 4.6GHz and can be overclocked further with precautions.
|Geekbench 5 (Single-Core)||1307|
|Geekbench 5 (Multi-Core)||12323|
Geekbench 5 Test system’s potential for gaming, image processing, and video editing with the Compute Benchmark. This also tests your GPU’s power with support for the CUDA, OpenCL, and Metal APIs. This processor scored the best in the Geekbench 5. This processor also beats some of the latest and most powerful processors with new record-breaking scores of single-core and multi-core performance. The single-core scores are 1307, and the multi-core scores are 12323. As you guys know. The higher the Geekbench 5 score the higher performance of the processor. Geekbench 5 score that is twice as high will mean the processor is twice as powerful. Ranking of single-core processors by Geekbench 5 score performance worldwide 2022. As of March 2022, the Intel AMD Ryzen 9 3900X processor achieved the best single-core performance with a score of 1316 from the Geekbench 5 benchmarking tests. Which is not fast as the intel 12Gen has, but still good enough to play decent games.
|Released||July 7, 2019|
AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is a desktop processor produced by AMD. This processor supports the socket AM4 which most important fact of the new AMD Ryzen processors. This processor has 12 cores and 20 threads. The base clock frequency of the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is 3800 MHz, but with the new Turbo Boost technology, it can go up to 4600MHz. The size of the L3 cache is whapping 64 MB. Unlike intel, this processor doesn’t have also integrated graphics. The instruction set architecture is based on x64 and can support x86. As the x64 will make more bandwidth then this x64 will be the best choice. This processor is based on Zen 2 architecture which is 25% faster and more efficient than the Zen 1 architecture.
|Base Frequency||3.8 GHz|
|Turbo Boost Frequency||4.6 GHz|
|Bus frequency||100 MHz|
|L1 Cache||64K (per core)|
|L2 Cache||512K (per core)|
|L3 Cache||64MB (shared)|
This processor has 12 cores and 20 threads with a base clock of 3.8GHz and, a boost clock of 4.6GHz. Bus frequency is 100MHz. which will help PCI lanes in terms of performance. This processor is also unlocked with a multiplier of 34x. This will help in overclocking this processor with the right amount of power consumption. This processor has the fastest L1, L2, and L3 cache memories. The L1 cache memory is 64K per core which means 12 cores have their own L1 cache memories. The L2 cache memory is also 512KB per core on 12 cores. The L3 cache memory is also 64MB which is also shared with the system. If you are looking for the best value processor then this AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is the best choice. In terms of gaming, this processor performs very great with good compatibility with the Nvidia GPU and with the AMD GPU’s. In terms of video editing and graphics rendering this processor also shows the best performance. Because of its base clock of 3.8GHz and the boost clock of 4.6GHz. This processor can be more powerful if you chose the right motherboard for it. Because this processor can be overclocked. But I would say no to overclocking because 4.6GHz is enough for today’s gaming and editing. This processor performance is faster and more stable than the Ryzen 7 3700x and Ryzen 5 3600x.
|Fabrication process||7 nm|
There are 19.2 billion transistors. This processor is based on 7Nm process fabrication. The TDP shows 105W of power consumption. This processor can also be overclocked. So, you can increase the voltage in the motherboard interface if the motherboard supports the unlocked processors. The most amazing fact about this processor is that the max temperature support of this processor is 95C which is awesome. You can play games as long as you want and this will not affect the speeds or any thermal throttling issues if you have a good CPU cooler or water cooler. Sometimes when this processor takes a bunch of loaded applications then the processor increases the speeds of each core to the needs. This increases power consumption, thus making the CPU hotter. And is known for overheating so this will help in the state of the CPU performance and make it cooler. The max temperature of this processor is 95C which is awesome.
This processor doesn’t have an integrated GPU. If you don’t have a GPU and you put this processor in a motherboard and you want to check the system performance, then sorry my friend because without a GPU this processor will not give a display.
|Memory Size||128 GB|
|Max. Memory Channels||2|
|Max. Memory Bandwidth||47.68 GB/s|
AMD Ryzen 9 3900X can support the DDR4 Ram with a memory frequency of 3200MHz. The max memory support of this AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is 128GB of ram. The max memory channel support is 2 channels of Ram. The max memory bandwidth is also 47.68 GB/s which is incredibly fast. There is no ECC support on this AMD Ryzen 9 3900X.
This processor is a good option for gamers. Considering its capabilities, it performs well in almost any situation like editing, gaming, rendering, streaming, etc. So, if you are looking for a processor under $650 then I highly recommend buying this processor. There are more alternatives to this processor like core i7 12TH Gen and other AMD CPUs. In this processor, you got 12 cores, 20 threads, and a boost clock of 4.6GHz. This will play every game at high FPS with a good combination of Graphics card and Ram. You will see no issues in the performance unless there is a bottleneck. So, to avoid that, I will make complete another article on the best compatible Ram, storage, and GPU for this processor. Just let me know in the comment.
So, this was my review of the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X. If you guys learned something new then make sure to check out my other articles in the review, as well as my YouTube channel.
