AMD's third-generation Ryzen series is finally available, with comparative reviews of Ryzen 9 3900X and Intel Core i9-9900K available


third-generation Ryzen series, such as the 12-core, 24-thread Ryzen 9 3900X designed with the Zen 2 architecture, was released on Sunday July 7, 2019, 19:00.

YouTube channel ' Jarrod's Tech ', which deals with PC hardware, has released a movie comparing Ryzen 9 3900X of such 3rd generation Ryzen series with Intel Core i9-9900K of 8 cores and 16 threads in the same price range. .

The image left is Ryzen 9 3900X, and the right is Core i9-9900K.

The specification comparison of both is below. The Core i9-9900X (left), designed with 14 nm process, has 8 cores and 16 threads, a base frequency of 3.6 GHz and an overclocking time of 5.0 GHz. The L3 cache consumes 16 MB and consumes 95 watts. On the other hand, the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X with 7 nm and 12 nm processes has 12 cores and 24 threads, a base frequency of 3.8 GHz, an overclock time of 4.6 GHz, an L3 cache of 64 MB and power consumption of 105 W. In addition, Ryzen 9 3900X comes with a set of AMD air-cooled CPU fans.

The following are the specifications of the PC used for comparison. The operating system is Windows 10 version 1903, the memory is 16GB · DDR4 · 3200MHz · CL14, and the GPU is

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti .

In the movie, comparisons were made not only for ratings but also for overclocked environments.

First of all, the result of measurement using benchmark software Cinebench R20 is below. The higher the number, the better the result. The score is almost the same in single core, but in multi-core, Ryzen 9 3900X scores higher than Core i9-9900K. However, when overclocking the Ryzen 9 3900X, you can see that the single core score is slightly lower than the rating.

It seems that Ryzen 9 3900 X recorded higher score even if it measures with Cinebench R15 which is a little older version. However, by overclocking as well, the score of the single core of Ryzen 3900 X is the same as being slightly lowered.

In a performance ratio experiment using

Blender Ooen Data , which is the official benchmark of Blender of 3DCG software, Ryzen 9 3900X was about 70% shorter in rendering time than Core i 9-9900K.

Free software '

HandBrake ' that can rip DVDs and convert movies, and convert 4K H.264 movies to 1080p and 1080p movies to 720p. The higher the number, the better the score, but the result is that Ryzen 9 3900X outperforms Core i9-9900K in both single-core and multi-core.

Comparing the time to output a 1080p H.264 movie with

Adobe Premiere CC 2019 , Ryzen 9 3900X is slightly higher in rating, but the result is almost the same value in overclocking.

When I performed '

Warp Stabilizer ' processing of Adobe Premiere CC 2019 to reduce the blurring of the movie with 4K · 60 FPS movie, Ryzen 9 3900X wins for both rating and overclocking.

The following is the result of measuring the

MIPS value by compressing and decompressing a 32 MB file using 7-Zip , a compression / decompression software. For both rating and overclocking, Ryzen 9 3900X has nearly doubled the value compared to Core i9-9900K.

Core i9-9900K was clearly faster than Ryzen 9 3900X when encryption and decryption were performed with the

AES algorithm using VeraCrypt encryption software.

It's like this when you summarize the score at the rating. The performance ratio with the 1st rating and the 2nd with overclocking, and the stick on the right means that the Ryzen 9 3900X has a better score than the Core 9 9900K. The performance ratio with 7-Zip and Cinebench on multi-core has risen to Ryzen 9 3900 X, but not all Ryzen 9 3900 X dominate.

The power consumption of the Ryzen 9 3900X is higher than that of the specifications according to the specifications, but the Core i9-9900K almost paralleled the Ryzen 9 3900X with overclocking.

The CPU temperature seems to be higher in Ryzen 9 3900X for both rating and overclocking.

The following is a measure of the average FPS when playing a game of

AAA title. After playing ' Shadow of the Tomb Raider ' at 1080p resolution, Core i9-9900K outperforms in any setting condition.

The result is the same even if you play at 1440p resolution.

The same result

applies to ' Assassin's Creed Odyssey '.

Other popular games such as '

Far Cry New Dawn ', ' Rainbow Six Siege ', ' Watch Dogs 2 ', ' Battlefield V ' and ' Counter-Strike: Global Offensive ', comparing the performance at 1080p and 1440p resolution, It was a result that Core i9-9900K exceeded. After all, Core i9-9900K seems to be able to perform better than Ryzen 9 3900X at the frame rate of the game that higher CPU clock is required.

Jarrod's Tech calculates the 'cost per frame' and compares the cost-effectiveness of each CPU. The Core i9 9900K does not have a CPU cooler, while the Ryzen 9 3900X has a CPU cooler. In terms of the price including CPU cooler, in gaming, Ryzen 9 3900X and Core i9-9900K will result in almost the same cost performance.

However, the cost per frame at HandBrake is Ryzen 9 3900X, which is the best for both rating and overclocking. For CG renderings and videos that use multiple CPU cores, Ryzen 9 3900X with 12 cores and 24 threads is well-known. It seems that Ryzen 9 3900X is more suitable than Core i9-9900K for high power PC for creators such as 3DCG creation and video editing.
