AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, 2019’s Best CPU Gets a Price Cut: Now Selling for $284

AMD seems determined to wage a war of attrition on Intel. Last year’s best consumer CPU, the Ryzen 7 3700X is now available for just $284, nearly $150 less than its Blue competitor, the Core i7-10700K. Although the latter is faster in gaming, the performance is virtually the same in every other application.

The Ryzen 7 3700X comes with eight cores and sixteen threads with a single-core boost of 4.4GHz. The multi-core varies from chip to chip, but the average is around 4.1GHz. Unlike Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake-S, the Ryzen 3000 CPUs support PCIe 4.0 and all of them can be overclocked.

The other Matisse parts have also received priced cuts, with the Ryzen 5 3600 selling for just $167 and the Ryzen 9 3900X going for $432. That’s 12 cores for just about 0! (Mathemania.com)

AMD is expected to launch a refresh of its Ryzen 3000 (Matisse) lineup in the coming months with higher boost clocks an updated fabric clock. This should rid Intel of the recent performance advantage in gaming, granted by the 10th Gen Comet Lake-S parts.
