Built to Perform. Designed to Win.

The world's most advanced processor* with 8 cores for the world's elite gamers.

Everyone deserves a powerful processor. Uncompromising features and smooth performance are finally the standard for every gamer- and artist-oriented system. Powered by the amazing Zen 2 architecture and manufactured using 7 nm process technology, the Ryzen 7 3700X has 8 cores and 16 threads, offering exceptional parallel computing power to handle demanding tasks and multitasking. PCIe 4.0 allows you to take full advantage of the new generation SSDs and next generation graphics cards. A Wraith Prism with RGB LED cooler is bundled, keeping the processor running cool and stable while giving brilliant, mesmerizing lighting that will certainly wow everyone.

* “Advanced” defined as superior process technology in a smaller node and unique support for PCIe® Gen 4 in the gaming market as of 05/26/2019. RZ3-14

3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Technology

The Premium AMD Wraith Prism Cooler

You Pick the Color: Bundled with every 3rd Gen Ryzen 7 and 9 desktop processor, the AMD Wraith Prism goes where no stock cooler has gone before with per-RGB LED control around the illuminated light ring and transparent fan blades. We’ve also added support for Razer Chroma, so you can enjoy ambient in-game effects that react dynamically to every action and event.

But the Wraith Prism isn’t just a pretty face; motherboard and RAM compatibility is increased by minimizing the profile and added direct-contact heat pipes and fan overclocking control to increase thermal effectiveness, too.

User-controlled RGB illumination relies on socket AM4 motherboards that support this feature, like the ASRock RGB LED, ASUS Aura sync, Biostar VIVID LED DJ, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, and MSI Mystic Light.

Zen 2—Setting the Bar for High Performance

AMD’s high-performance x86 Core “Zen 2” architecture enables 3rd Gen Ryzen Processors to deliver the highest single-thread and multi-thread performance of any mainstream desktop processor. For gamers and creators alike, that’s mission-critical performance built to help you win.

Compute Efficiency by Design

The "Zen 2" core is a significant update to the historic "Zen" architecture. Now featuring:

  • Up to 15% more instructions-per-cycle
  • 2X L3 cache capacity (up to 32MB)
  • 2X floating point throughput (256-bit)
  • 2X OpCache capacity (4K)
  • 2X Infinity Fabric bandwidth (512-bit)
  • New TAGE branch predictor

Performance and Efficiency for Next-Gen Applications

Cloud computing, enterprise productivity, immersive visual experiences, gaming and streaming all demand increasing computing performance with optimal energy efficiency. From the very beginning, AMD engineers designed the new “Zen 2” core to meet those demands with more core throughput, larger caches, and powerful multi-threading capabilities.

AMD StoreMI Technology*

SSDs are fast, but expensive, and offer minimal capacity. Mechanical hard drives boast large capacity for a low price, but are much slower than an SSD. AMD StoreMI technology combines these two types of storage into a single drive and automatically moves the data you access the most to the SSD, so you get the best of both worlds: SSD responsiveness, and mechanical hard disk capacity with its low price.

* AMD StoreMI Technology is included with every motherboard that features an AMD X399 or 400-series chipset. If you have an AMD X399 or 400-series chipset, you can download AMD StoreMI software for free. If you have a socket AM4 motherboard with a 300-series chipset, you can still enjoy the benefits of storage acceleration with Enmotus FuzeDrive software, exclusively for AMD, for an additional fee.

AMD SenseMI Technology. Technology That Thinks.

AMD introduces SenseMI technology, a set of learning and adapting features that help the AMD Ryzen processor customize its performance to you and your applications. Finally: performance that thinks.

AMD Ryzen Master Utility for Overclocking

Every AMD Ryzen processor is multiplier-unlocked from the factory, so you can personalize performance to your taste. AMD provides the AMD Ryzen Master utility to access this powerful advantage.

AMD Ryzen Master provides up to four profiles to store custom clocks and voltage adjustments for both the Ryzen CPU and DDR4 memory. You can park cores and adjust memory timings, too.

Note: AMD product warranty does not cover damages caused by overclocking, even when overclocking is enabled via AMD hardware.

Amazing price to performance but... 7/7/2020 3:24:06 PM

Overall Review: I first got this and was ecstatic because I’ve seen many reviews and I was hopping for the best, when I first ran this with the stock cooler I was SUPRISED to see that my temps were 68c in the bios. I was forced to buy a cooler and it brand down my temps to a cool 37c which is pretty good for a ryzen cpu.

Nice upgrade for 5 years more of gaming and productivity 7/7/2020 2:35:00 PM

Overall Review: It is a high-end CPU value worth buying, even though the XT series is already available and even the next generation Ryzen is due out due to the value / performance ratio.

For 430 ish USD yo get 12 cores and 24 threads, that's something intel can't offer you and I know it's not the same clockspeed, Ryzen is slower, but that doesn't mean it's bad. Unless you are a competitive player that needs the higher FPS count as possible then AMD got your back.
This cpu is capable of doing everything, playing games and productivity where the multicore shines.

The bottom line for me was: if you are someone who cares about money and want to get as much as you can, buy this. If money is not a problem buy Intel, and even so I would highly recommend buying the most expensive AMD consumer CPU and spending the rest on video card and storage.

Great CPU! 7/7/2020 2:04:04 PM

Pros: Fast, great stock cooler, easy to install.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Overall this cpu is perfect at its price point. It runs smooth, fast, and at a good temperature even when in high usage. The stock cooler is really great! It doesn't keep it as cool as some people might want, however, I have experienced no issues with it, and it is shockingly quiet. I even accidently overclocked the cpu to 4.2ghz and it runs perfectly. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a mid, or even high range build. Paired with my 2070 Super, it works perfectly.

This thing blows my old i7 4790k 4.0ghz 4core 8thread out of the water!!!! 7/7/2020 12:10:46 PM

Pros: My old system bit the bullet and I lost it due to a power outage. Decided against buy the same motherboard since I was still on DDR3. So I bought the Ryzen 7 3700x CPU. Which uses less power than the i7 4790k cpu I was replacing. It came with the Wraith Spire cooler. That's actually pretty good. I didn't expect windows 10 2004 to run so smooth and fast. My games do run smoother and faster. I'm a happy camper. My gaming, DAW FLStudio 20, Renoise 3.2, and blender performance is much better than before.

Cons: None. There were no compatibility issues with this CPU running on an Asus ROG Crosshair Hero VIII Wifi X570 Motherboard.

Overall Review: If you're on haswell or older buy Ryzen now.

Overall Review: Moved from an i5-3330 4 core to this. Noticiable difference even with benchmarks. Runs hitter but went from a CM evo coolernto stock wraith. Will go back to CM and test again. Very happy so far
