AMD Ryzen 3 3300X vs AMD Ryzen 9 3950X

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X

► remove from comparison AMD R3 3300X

The Ryzen 3 3300X is a mid-range desktop processor of the Matisse series with 4 cores and 8 threads. It clocks from 3.8 (base) - 4.3 GHz (boost) and uses the Zen 2 microarchitecture. It uses all four cores in a single CCX-cluster, unlike the slower Ryzen 3 3100 which uses two clusters. The CPU is manufactured in the modern 7nm process at TSMC. The I/O die on the package is separate and manufactured in 12 nm at Globalfoundries. The TDP is specified at 65 Watt and therefore the CPU wont need a big beefy cooler.

Thanks to the high clock rates, the Ryzen 3300X is performing similar than the old Core i7-7700K (a former high end CPU) and therefore a good pick for entry level gaming systems.

AMD Ryzen 9 3950X

► remove from comparison AMD R9 3950X

The AMD Ryzen 9 3950X is a high-end desktop processor with 16 cores based on the Zen 2 architecture. At launch in November 2019 it is the fastest CPU of the Matisse series. The 3950X clocks from 3.5 GHz (base) up to 4.7 GHz (Turbo for a single core). All sixteen cores can reach up to 4.1 GHz.

Thanks to the 16 cores and 32 threads, the 3950X offers excellent application performance - if the number of cores can be used. Thanks to the relatively high Turbo, the single core performance is also situated in the high end. For games however, there are faster CPUs, like the Core i9-10900K.

The Ryzen 9 3950X is manufactured in 7nm (the four CCX-cluster with the cores) at TSMC and 12 nm (I/O die) at Globalfoundries. The TDP is rated at 250 Watt and therefore the CPU needs a very powerful cooling system.
