AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT and Ryzen 7 3800XT Benchmarks Surface

AMD's 3rd generation Ryzen "Matisse Refresh" processors surfaced on the Futuremark online database, as dug up by TUM_APISAK, where someone with access to them allegedly posted some performance numbers. Interestingly, the clock-speeds as read by the Futuremark SystemInfo module appear very different from what were previously reported. The 3800XT is shown featuring a 3.80 GHz nominal clock, boosting up to 4.70 GHz, while the 3900XT has a 3.90 GHz nominal clock, boosting up to the same 4.70 GHz as the 3800XT. APISAK reports that the 3800XT scores 25135 points in the FireStrike physics test.

A WCCFTech report presents screenshots of Cinebench R20 single-thread performance scores of the 3900XT, where it is shown beating the i9-10900K (in a single-threaded test). The 3800XT is within striking distance of the i9-10900K in this test, and beats the i7-10700KF. This single-threaded performance figure suggests that AMD's design focus with "Matisse Refresh" has been to shore up single-threaded and less-parallelized application performance, in other words, gaming performance.

So... that 3900XT is like a dual socket 8700K rig, all rolled up into one CPU.

max 4670mhz ? man,that's not that much over 3900x,even the early batches did that.

Updated with alleged cinebench scores. Looks like AMD has been busy.

That Single Core score though.

4% over 3900x

am I seeing what you're seeing ?

Maximum frequencies during test are 4623 and 4673 MHz, both fall a bit short of 4700 and 4800 MHz, respectively.

It's better but I can't hear any fanfares. Wonder if that is the final product or there will be more frequency adjustments.

I think they're just monetizing more mature 7nm.

It would seem so but deep inside I've expected a little bit more. Not like it's a crap, hell no, but a little bit more.

The "busy" probably refers to the fact that AMD is trying to polish the 3000 series with some sort of effect to counter Intel 10th Gen. It's not bad still though even if it's 200Mhz up.
Considering how "great" AMD CPUs OC it is quite and achievement.

yeah but isn't all credit due to tsmc really ?

I suspect board vendors need to tune their BIOS before we'll see clocks meet the rated speeds on the box. The CPUs themselves are no different to always - the XTs are neither an architectural nor process tweak, these are still just the same product that released last year, only binned higher thanks to 7nm maturity and better yields.

Sure TSMC earns the token but AMD surely as well. It's AMD's product and AMD didn't have to polish the 3000 series but did it.

That for sure. I wonder how far these can go. I'm 99% certain, there will be no headroom for more OC.

Absolutely, but of course AMD is going to use it to their advantage. It's what everyone expects and the nudge AMD needed was Intel Comet Lake.

thanks tsmc more like
I hope they don't just raise the prices on current cpus,those manufactured in the recent months have both dropped in price and clocked better than launch

fankly,to my mind,if you want to get a 3000 - get it now.

This is just a 7/7 July 7th relaunch from last year with slightly higher clocks.

No like, waiting to see proper new CPUs Zen 3 Vermeer in September.

Napkin math, applying the rule of three to the 3900X cinebench singlethread and gaming scores, shows the 3900XT should be slightly better in gaming.
Good job AMD! The world's fastest gaming processor might have a very short reign :)

huh.
Maybe you are right. Amd has been releasing and will release 3000 series ryzens no matter what. Maybe AMD didn't plan to release XT version but since TSMC got the node improved, AMD decided to go for it since they have noticed higher CPUs potential.
yup.money doesn't grow on trees.it grows in your wallet.

Apparently the latest samples OC better, which would be only reasonable, given the time the process has had to mature. Also, AMD might have been binning their chips from the beginning.
