The AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT is as oddly positioned as was the original AMD R7 3800X CPU. In our 3800X review, we concluded “don’t waste the money,” noting that the 3700X made more sense. Now, with the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X being cheaper than at launch (it typically sits around $400, as the official new MSRP), a same-priced 3800XT leaves us scratching our heads. AMD is trying to raise ASP, it seems, because otherwise, the XT series doesn’t have the same punch as other AMD launches. The company is starting to circle the Intel CPU release pattern of many years ago, and that concerns us. Either way, we’re benchmarking the AMD R7 3800XT vs. the 3900X, 3800X, 3700X, Intel i9-10900K, i7-10700K, 10600K, and more. We briefly talk about Infinity Fabric clocks, overclocking, and voltages here, but our higher focus on overclocking is in the 3600XT CPU review (linked above). Benchmarks again look at the best CPUs for video editing, Adobe Premiere, gaming, Blender, code compile, and similar workloads.
