Which 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Is the Best For You

Previously We have Compared the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen With the 9th Gen Intel Core i
And Overall The AMD was the clear Winner

Here is the full comparison of the 3rd Gen AMD ryzen and (9th Gen Intel Core i9)

But Even if AMD was the Winner, you can still be confused at which AMD to buy, as straight forward buying a Ryzen 9 3900X isn’t always a great option

Even If, you have the budget to buy the Ryzen 9 3900X if your workload doesn’t need it then it will be a waste of money

In this post, I will Try to Make It Easy For Choosing a CPU according to your workload

The options we will be comparing today are
Ryzen 5 3600X
Ryzen 7 3700X(The 3800X is almost the same as the 3700X with just 100 MHz increase in core speeds and a greater TDP)
Ryzen 9 3900X

AMD Ryzen 3,7,9 Specification table

So First Let’s start with the specification table and see the difference between the Ryzen 3,7 and 9

Note: The Ryzen 9 3900X is Much Costlier in India as compared to the other CPU’s

Light Workload

So let’s start with Light Workloads like beginner desktop-level CAD/CAM, Beginner level 3D rendering, simulations, Up to 1080P video editing and Medium Setting at AAA titles
Then The Ryzen 5 3600X would easily do the job for you
and the 3600X can also handle very light server loads and would be a good option if you want to build a tight budget Workstation

Medium Workload

Now If you do Intermediate desktop-level CAD/CAM, 3D rendering and simulations, Up to 2K Video editing and want to play AAA title at High Setting
Then Ryzen 7 3700X is the way to go
The 3700X can also handle light to medium server loads
The 3800X is a beefier version of the 3700X with 100MHz increase in Clock speed and a greater TDP
But the performance increase doesn’t justify the price increase so the 3700X has a better value for money

High Workload

Now for High desktop-level CAD/CAM, 3D rendering and Simulation, Up to 8K Video Editing and want to Play AAA titles at Highest Setting
Then The Ryzen 9 3900X is the answer for you
It can easily handle medium server loads and workstation loads

If you want more performance like handling medium to high-medium workstation load easily, fluid 8K video editing
and Highly complex Desktop level CAD/CAM editing then, the 16 Cores 32 threads Ryzen 9 3950X
is the answer, but most of the people don’t need that kind of performance

For more intensive Task’s like High Workstation loads and medium level server loads then,
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper series is the way to go

Benchmarks

Benchmarks are compared with the intel counterpart

First Will Be the Cinebench R20
Cinebench R20 can be said to be an overall CPU Benchmark with single and multicore scores

Here Clearly AMD Ryzen is the Winner in each segment
And The Score fo Threadripper 3970X is even beating the Intel Xeon series

Higher Is Better

7-Zip Compression/Decompression
Here Again, AMD wins by a good margin

Due To WinRAR using a variable number of Cores and Performing badly with two-digit cores
here Intel is the winner but by a very close call

In SIngle Core The core i9 Is better than The AMD Ryzen 9, that is due to a higher clock speed
But in Multithreaded workload, AMD Ryzen is the winner

Higher Is Better

In Gaming the Intel is clear winner, the reason being most of the games take full advantage of a higher clocked CPU core and
most of the games only use 4-6 Cores at max

Conclusion

If Gaming is the only thing you are going to do on your system and nothing more
then only go for intel

if you are more into multithreaded workload like video editing, CAD/CAM, rendering, simulations and alike,
and game streaming at 1080P or Above then AMD Ryzen is the Answer
