AMD Ryzen 7 3700U vs AMD Ryzen 7 2700X

AMD Ryzen 7 3700U

► remove

The AMD Ryzen 7 3700U is a mobile SoC that was announced in January 2019. It combines four Zen+ cores (8 threads) clocked at 2.3 - 4 GHz with a Radeon RX Vega 10 graphics card with 10 CUs (640 Shaders) clocked at up to 1400 MHz. Specified at 15 Watt TDP, the SoC is intended for thin mid-range laptops.

The Picasso SoCs use the Zen+ microarchitecture with slight improvements that should lead to a 3% IPC (performance per clock) improvements. Furthermore, the 12nm process allows higher clock rates at similar power consumptions.

The integrated dual-channel memory controller supports up to DDR4-2400 memory. As the features of the Picasso APUs are the same compared to the Raven Ridge predecessors, we point to our Raven Ridge launch article.

AMD states that the Picasso APUs are about 8% faster than the predecessors. Therefore, the Ryzen 7 3700U should be slightly ahead the Ryzen 7 2700U.

AMD Ryzen 7 2700X

► remove AMD 2700X

The AMD Ryzen 7 2700X is a high-end desktop processor with 8 cores (16 threads) that was announced early 2018. It is based on the revised Zen+ cores and at launch the fastest Ryzen CPU. The CPU cores clock at 3.7 GHz base and using Precision Boost 2 up to 4.3 GHz. All 8 cores and 16 threads can clock up to 4 GHz. The 8 cores are divided in two cluster (4 cores each with own L3 cache) connected via Infinity Fabric.

Compared to the older first Ryzen generation (e.g., Ryzen 5 1700X), the second generation is manufactured in an improved process (12nm called), offers and improved Precision Boost 2 (especially in partial load of the cores) and faster cache and memory speeds.

See our second generation Ryzen review for detailed benchmarks and information.
