AMD Ryzen 7 3800 XT 8C/16T ZEN 2 ‘Matisse’ Refresh CPU Benchmark Leaks Indicates Significant Performance Gains

The AMD Ryzen 3000 XT series has been spotted in leaked benchmarks. The results of the ZEN 2 based desktop-grade AMD Ryzen CPUs indicate the company has managed to boost performance significantly. The latest leak comes in the form of the Ashes of the Singularity (AotS) benchmark which doesn’t offer exact specifications but does indicate how evolved and powerful the as-yet-unreleased is the CPU.

The Ryzen 7 3800XT has been tested with Ashes of the Singularity benchmark, confirmed a Tweet from @_rogame. The CPU is listed with 8 Cores and 16 Threads. It was paired with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080. It is undoubtedly an Engineering Sample, but the results are a good indicator of the power of the CPU.

AMD Ryzen 7 3800 XT 8C/16T ZEN 2 ‘Matisse’ Refresh CPU Spotted in AotS Benchmark Indicating 34 Percent Performance Boost:

The AotS benchmark has been used to test both the Ryzen 7 3800 X processor and the Ryzen 7 3800 XT processor. The database does not list the clock speeds for its entries. However, it does showcase the framerate that these processors produced.

The AMD Ryzen 7 3800 X processor on the 1080p preset, at the resolution of 2560 x 1080, managed a score of 5,800. The CPU consistently averaged a frame rate of 60.3 FPS, which is not very high but still manageable. The AMD Ryzen 7 3800 XT, on the other hand, on the 1080p preset, with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, managed a score of 7,400. The CPU averaged at 76.6 FPS. It is important to note that AMD has not announced or even confirmed the existence of the 8C/16T Ryzen 7 3800 XT yet. Hence the engineering sample might have offered a lower result.

The important aspect of the benchmark result of the AMD Ryzen 7 3800 XT 8C/16T ZEN 2 ‘Matisse’ CPU is the CPU frame rate. The Ryzen 7 3800 X processor managed a score of 83.8, while the Ryzen 7 3800 XT processor featured a score of 113.2. Simple math indicates a substantial boost of about 34 percent.

Both the AotS benchmarks utilized the powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080. Interestingly, both the AMD Ryzen 7 3800 X as well as the AMD Ryzen 7 3800 XT feature a total of eight cores and a total of sixteen threads. This clearly means the XT variant doesn’t offer a higher core count. Instead, buyers can expect faster clock speeds. Since both the AMD CPUs are based on the same ZEN 2 ‘Matisse’ microarchitecture, it is not clear what else is different.

AMD ZEN 2 ‘Matisse’ Ryzen 3000 XT Series CPU Family:

The AMD Ryzen 3000 XT lineup should have an increased clock speed. Although unconfirmed, these CPUs could easily have a clock speed that is 200 MHz to 300 MHz higher than the ‘X’ variant. Compared to the previous generation of ZEN based Ryzen CPUs, these new 3rd-gen Ryzen processors will offer both a higher core count as well as a higher core clock speed. There are three variants in the AMD Ryzen 3000 XT series:

  • AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT (Ryzen 9 3900X Replacement)
  • AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT (Ryzen 7 3800X Replacement)
  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT (Ryzen 5 3600X Replacement)

The AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT will reportedly offer a Base Clock of 4.0 GHz and 4.7 GHz Boost Clock. The Ryzen 7 3800XT will offer a Base Clock of 4.2 GHz and a Boost Clock of 4.7 GHz. The AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT is suggested to feature a Base Clock of 4.1 GHz and a Boost Clock of up to 4.8 GHz.
