AMD X370 vs X470 vs X570 - 3600X & 3700X Review

Overclocking and Temperatures

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X X370 vs X470 vs X570 Review


The X470 is recent enough that we've tested it in full for today's comparison, but we're focussing largely upon the X370 and X570 as there is such a broad time gap between their relative launches.

The X570 comfortably has the better memory capability being able to run the 3600x at 4550mhz, something we knew would be the weakness of the X370 boards as it has been one of the biggest area of improvement and even shouted about by AMD themselves on the X470 launch. However in raw CPU overclocking terms the X370 just shades the X570 by another 25 MHz but this is definitely down to the fact the memory is considerably lower at just 3200mhz, showing that the Ryzen 5 3600X isn't anything stronger than the power phases were designed to handle.

Great, thanks for this, must have been a lot of work, been looking around at super cheap 2nd hand AM4 boards recently now my AM3+ gaming system has finally given in. Might even go B350 tbh just need a quick replacement that does the job for that rig since nothing too important on thereQuote

Uhhhh, that's juicy. Thank you Tom! <3

Having a Crosshair Hero VI it certainly a nice thing to know one could just drop a 3700x in there... but maybe the greed is real and I'll try the 3900x XDD However, probably more of a Winter Project ^^

Thanks again.Quote

Just be aware AMD a going to stop pcie 4.0 drives working on x370 and x470 boards in an agesa update as they want to differentiate the x570 boardsQuote

I sadly don't have time now to read all of this of comment about it, but I did notice the x265 and HEVC benchmarks, and I'm not sure what the deal is there. x265 is a HEVC encoder.Quote

Nice one

I'm still not decided on what direction I want to go in, if any. It's an extreme amount of faff for me so I think I will leave it for now. I'll wait at least until launch prices drop. Should only be a couple of months so I guess my upgrade could be done this fall. At least then I would be able to have it powered on for more than one minute before feeling cooked.Quote
