AMD 3rd Gen Ryzen CES 2019

First official gaming benchmarks released for AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, as fast as Intel’s i9 9900K

AMD has just released the first official gaming benchmarks for the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X. AMD has put its new CPU against the Intel i9 9900K and from what we can see, AMD’s new CPU is as fast as Intel’s offering at 1080p.

As we can see, in Devil May Cry 5 the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is slower than the Intel i9 9900K, whereas in Counter Strike: Global Offensive the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X is faster than Intel’s high-end gaming CPU. In the other games, the Ryzen 9 3900X performs similarly to the Intel i9 9900K, something that will definitely please a lot of PC gamers.

AMD has also shared some official gaming benchmarks for the AMD Ryzen 7 3800X and the AMD Ryzen 5 3600X. The red team compared the first CPU with Intel’s i7 9700K and the second CPU with the Intel i5 9600K. Again, AMD’s CPUs appear to be doing great on gaming and the gap between Intel’s and AMD’s CPUs is pretty minimal at this point.

AMD will release its 3rd generation Ryzen CPUs on July 7th. The AMD Ryzen 3800X (which will target most gamers) will be priced at $399, will feature 8 CPU cores, will support 16 threads, will be clocked at 3.9Ghz with a turbo-boost of 4.5Ghz, and will require 105W of power.

On the other hand, the AMD Ryzen 3900X will be priced at $499, will feature 12 CPU cores, will support 24 threads, will be clocked at 3.8Ghz with a turbo-boost of 4.6Ghz, and will require 105W of power.
