AMD Ryzen 3000XT series CPUs get a bump in performance

Computing
AMD is launching their XT lineup of third gen Ryzen processors, and their performance makes them ideal for professional content creators. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] Today the Ryzen 5 3600XT, Ryzen 7 3800XT, and the Ryzen 9 3900XT are available. These CPUs are still Zen 2, 7 nanometer chips that AMD has been using for the last year. However, AMD says that they were able to improve the manufacturing process. To achieve better performance, essentially increasing boost frequencies without having to increase power consumption, meaning that these chips are faster and more efficient. Let's get right into it and look at some of the benchmarks comparing the Z line to the rest of the third Gen rising lineup. The cinebench multi core score shows general improvement from the rising threes all the way up to the rise of nines. This is pretty expected and nothing unusual to report here. The X teams performs slightly better than their predecessors but not by much. The cinebench single core score reveals much more about the performance gains from the higher single core boost clock frequencies that are achievable on the XT chips. I was able to achieve an improvement of just under 4% in my testing Looking at some real world test I use the recent project I worked on in Adobe Premiere Pro to test the render speeds. This project had some color grading a few motion graphics and was rendered in 4k. Again, not much to point out just slight improvements for the XTline. In After Effects, I booted up our 5g animation, which is a complex animation with hundreds of assets. Looking at the 3800 x versus the 3800 x t, we see an improvement of 20 seconds in this test one of the largest performance improvements I saw between these two chips during testing and finally looking at 3d animation and modeling Using the blender classroom render benchmark, we see that the 3900 xt performed incredibly well against the rest of the lineup only falling short to the top of the line 3950 X. The 3000 xt series line of CPUs performed, as expected, offering slight improvements over the 3000 X series CPUs. Now, are they upgrade worthy? No, of course not going from a 3800 X to a 3200 XT just isn't worth the money for such a small improvement. And AMD knows that the X series will continue to coexist alongside the XT lineup. While AMD is not officially cutting prices on its older third Gen CPUs. They are falling in price at retailers making choices difficult for those who are shopping for new CPUs, if you're starting from scratch and building a new PC or looking to upgrade from an older CPU. Then an x t makes sense. Same with professional content creators. If you're working everyday in the Adobe Creative Suite or doing some 3D modeling, then a 3800 x t or 3900 x t make a ton of sense, shorter render times and a snappy system response are always key in a productive environment. This is one of those cases where creator has a monetary incentive to invest in their gear for production. So it makes Sense to get the best that you can afford. But for the average consumer or even avid video gamer, it's hard to justify the price. Let's talk about expected gaming performance for a moment. When it comes to games on a PC. They aren't really optimised to take advantage of large core counts, which is what the rising third Gen is all about. If you're looking for peak performance when gaming, then having a higher clock speed is more important. However, the XT lineup only offers 1 to 200 megahertz of improvement over the X series CPUs I think for the small increase in performance that you get, you're better off investing your money and getting a better graphics card, where you'll actually get a significant boost in fps. For those hoping for a major performance spike. This is gonna be a little bit disappointing. But it's nice that AMD is giving us one last Zen to performance bump. And they've really given consumers a ton of options when it comes to price from the bottom of their CPU stack all the way up to the top. But if you can wait a little while longer, AMD has already come out and said that the Zen three architecture is still on track for a 2020 release, meaning that the next generation of CPUs are just around the corner.
