AMD Ryzen 3800x Review


By my Boss, I was asked to review the AMD Ryzen 3800x.  I honestly had to do a decent amount of research because I am not down pat on what a CPU does.  He is wanting me to determine whether or not this CPU would be a good gamer CPU.  I know the simple stuff like what the CPU is which is the Central Processing Unit, and the clock speed which for this CPU it has a Base Clock speed of 3,900,000,000 GHz which means it processing at 3.9 billion cycles a second.

This CPU is an 8 core processor, or Octo core processor.  The processor core receives instructions from a single computing task, and works with the clock speed to quickly process the information and temporarily store in the Random Access Memory which the acronym to this term would be RAM.  Im glad I finally cleared this up.

So this CPU has 512 KB of L1 Cache, 4 MB of L2 Cache, and 32 MB of L3 Cache.  Cache is a small part of the memory which is apart of the CPU, actually it is closer to the CPU than RAM.  It is used to temporarily hold instructions and data that the CPU is likely to reuse.  So as you can tell this CPU has plenty of storage on the CPU for you being able to download files or play games on. This is all new to me honestly.

So this CPU has 16 threads.  By the research I have done a thread is directly related to a CPU core and is basically just a virtual version of it.  Although many AMD CPU’s use SMT (Surface Mount Technology) related to their threads, many Intel CPU’s use hyperthreading.

Ultimately, this CPU would be a good match for ideally a Business CPU or a Home CPU.  I mean if you want to, you could run this as a low end Gaming CPU but if you dont have to you definitely do not want to.

All in All, I would definitely recommend this CPU for your Business or Home purposes.  It makes a quality CPU for surfing the web or playing small games like coolmath games for example.  If you had to, you could run this as a low end Gaming CPU, but I would not recommend it.

Review of The AMD Ryzen 7 3800x

AMD also known as (Advanced Micro Devices) sells a wide variety of hardware products for a computer.  AMD manufactures a wide variety of products such as Microprocessors, Motherboard Chipsets, Embedded processors, and Graphic processors for servers, work stations, personal computers, and embedded system applications.  Out of all the things that AMD manufactures, they are most commonly known for there CPU’s (Central Processing Unit).  AMD is only behind Intel,  who supplies processors for computer system manufacturers, and also manufactures Motherboard Chipsets, network interface controllers & integrated circuits, flash memory, graphics chips, and embedded processors.

AMD was founded on May 1, 1969 by Jerry Sanders.  Their headquarters is located in Santa Clara, California, and is very close to the Intel company.





So as you can see the company’s are very close to each other that if they wanted to have a meeting, they could walk to either places buildings.

So Back to the CPU Review: 

The AMD Ryzen 7 3800x is a 7th Gen CPU that AMD makes.  In my opinion, this CPU would work on many sorts of motherboards except for Gaming Motherboards.  For your Home PC, this would be a CPU that has all the stuff you would ever dream for in a CPU for a low price.  This would also work on the Business PC because it is a very cost efficient CPU that has a lot of cache and a average clock speed.



  1. Base Clock: 3.9 GHz
  2. Max Boost Clock: Up to 4.5 GHz


  1. L1 Cache: 512 KB
  2. L2 Cache: 4 MB
  3. L3 Cache: 32 MB


  1. AM4 


  1. # of Cores: 8
  2. # of Threads: 16


  1. 24517 (higher the better)

This CPU can be found on for $379.99.  This steal of a price makes it a very cost efficient CPU.

After reviewing the specs, I would say that this CPU is definitely on the high end.  Whether you are using this CPU in a home computer, or using it in your computer at work it should fit all your expectations.  The only one category motherboard it would not be valuable for would be for a Gaming computer.  It even has a low price! You can tell by all the advanced specs and the wonderful Passmark rating that this CPU is definitely worth the buy, and I for sure recommend this CPU.
