AMD Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 9 3900X Review

Test Setup

One of the great benefits to the AM4 platform is its compatibility, so we are testing these CPUs on both the X470 and X570 platforms to see how the Zen 2 architecture works as a whole, and how much performance you can expect if you drop your new 3rd Generation Ryzen CPU into your existing X470 motherboard.

Ryzen 7 3700X Overclocking

With the latest BIOS in place both the X470 and X570 chipsets are capable of pushing the Ryzen 7 3700X hard, up to 4.4 GHz across all eight cores, with 3600 MHz DDR4. We’ve also got some DDR4 overclocking tests we’ll show you in a moment, where the X570 clearly has the upper hand.
