AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 7 3800 XT has been spotted in the Ashes benchmark, and the results show a nominal improvement over the existing Matisse family. The 3800XT scores 7,400 points at 1080p using the “crazy” preset, yielding 76.6 FPS. This makes it roughly 10% faster than the vanilla Ryzen 7 3800X in the same benchmark.
Although this may not seem like a big boost, keep in mind that Ashes of the Singularity doesn’t benefit from higher core clocks as much as other games which is also why AMD’s Ryzen parts often come out ahead of the Intel competition here.

A 200MHz increase in the single-core boost should bring about a 10-20% increase in gaming performance (broadly speaking) and this is in-line with that. Games like Deus Ex, Far Cry 5 and other DX11 based titles should see a bigger boost as they rely more on single-threaded performance. You can read our earlier coverage of the Matisse refresh here:
