AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12 Core CPU Falls to $389, Almost Same as the Intel Core i7-10700K

With the launch of the Ryzen 3000XT CPUs, the vanilla Matisse parts seem to have dropped even further in pricing. The 12 core Ryzen 9 3900X which originally launched at $499 has now slipped to just $389, the same as Intel’s newly released Core i7-10700K ($375, but selling at over $400 at most retailers).

Although the 10700K is slightly faster in gaming workloads thanks to its higher boost clocks, the Ryzen 9 3900X is vastly superior in everything else from content creation to file compression and video encoding. It comes with 12 7nm Zen 2 cores running at a base clock of 3.8GHz and a boost of 4.6GHz. It has a massive L3 cache of 64MB and an L2 cache of 6MB.

Although the CPU comes with the stock wraith prism cooler, we strongly suggest buying an aftermarket cooler to get the best performance. You may buy the chip here.
