When he presented his new architecture, AMD promised a considerable generational leap for Zen 2 with respect to current processors: with higher caches, double AVX output and support for faster DDR4 memories. The other day we saw how the closure of the leaks was opened with the performance of the Ryzen 5 3600, and today we have to take a look at a more powerful component: the Ryzen 7 3800X. Tum Apisak, a regular at this house, have posted on his Twitter account the results of the Geekbench 4 test bench:
In tasks with a thread, the processor is positioned with 5406 points, while in multihilo arrives until 34059 (all this with memory at 2133 MHz). Putting as a reference of the previous Ryzen 7 2700X (because there is no 2800X model) with memory at 2666 MHz, we find a blunt improvement: Zen + obtained scores of less than 5000 and slightly higher than 25000, respectively to a single thread and multi -thread It remains to elucidate the impact that will have the use of faster memories DDR4, but if we add to the comparison the results of an Intel i9-9900K with 3200 MHz memory, you can see that the results are higher. On the other hand, Geekbench 4 usually leaves blue processors in a better place, especially with respect to the older Ryzen.
The most relevant conclusion we can draw is that third-generation processors Ryzen will rectify most of the problems that existed in the AMD line. The new designs of Zen 2 will become much more competitive, especially adding the best frequencies and energy efficiency.
