Ryzen 7 3800XT review | PC Gamer

The AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT is the somewhat surprising star of the XT release line-up, simply because it’s privy to the highest boost improvement of any of the new chips. While the Ryzen 9 3900XT and Ryzen 5 3600XT get a 100MHz uptick to the top Boost clock, the 3800XT gets 200MHz instead. Heady stuff. 

AMD Ryzen 9 3800XT specs

The base clock hasn’t changed, and when you’re using all 16 threads at the same time you won’t really get near this new 4.7GHz ceiling either, but on those occasions where a single core is pressured into strutting its stuff, you should see improvements. And indeed that is the case. In Cinebench R20 the 3800XT hit one of the highest single-core figures I’ve seen, with a score of 539—that’s even higher than the Intel Core i9 10900K.
