Ryzen 9 3900X: King of Rendering and Productivity Workloads

On 7th July, AMD made the biggest performance swing in CPU history. Ryzen 9 3900X, Ryzen 7 3700X, Ryzen 5 3600X and Ryzen 5 3600 are officially benchmarked by trusted TechTubers respectively. These 7nm FinFet based chips were highlighted mainly with positive reviews. Most notable differences from previous 2nd Gen Ryzen chips were the rendering and productivity performance by Ryzen 9 3900X and Ryzen 7 3700X.

Especially, 12 Core 24 Thread plus max 4.6 GHz powered Ryzen 9 3900X made a revolutionary step towards solving complex multithreaded tasks faster than overpriced Intel Core i9-9900K. The secret sauce behind this amazing performance is the chipset design that allows fitting more cores and dissipates heating temperatures quickly upwards IHS (Internal Heat Spreader).

In 4K 60 fps YouTube Video export task using Adobe Premiere Pro CC, this Ryzen 9 3900X has completely obliterated Intel’s Core i9-9900K by finishing the export 22% faster. No one would imagine that Adobe Premiere Pro video editing software is favoring AMD’s Ryzen 3rd Gen chips since we knew that most TechTubers preferred Intel processors for their job. Here is the example is shown by the credible Hardware Unboxed channel:

Another reliable YouTube channel by name Tech Yes City has demonstrated H.264 4K Video rendering performance of Ryzen 9 3900X besting out any Intel CPUs to end the rendering video file in 272 seconds compared to 315 seconds by i9-9900K. This CPU launch was worth the wait. Benchmarks down below illustrate that an entire Intel Core processors lineup is outdated after 3rd Gen Ryzen release. Even though, 5 GHz overclocked i9-9900K could not match the current top of the line AMD processor.

Lastly, V-Ray is one of the heaviest rendering software that can be attached with Sketchup Pro and 3DS Max as an advanced plugin to execute complex designs into photorealistic images. In fact, Gamers Nexus Youtuber made a bold claim by demonstrating rendering benchmark of Chaos Group V-Ray 1.0.8 version featuring Ryzen 9 3900X which took the performance crown from i9-9900K with a shocking 20% better speed.

To conclude, the monster processor Ryzen 9 3900X is the big deal for productive people or even movie producers who own big studios. It’s current $499 price tag is making i9-9900K into non-existence in the market. All these above-mentioned benchmarks are done using Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card to avoid any bottlenecks. For motherboard choice, we recommend X470 or X570 with PCIe Gen 4.0 support (fast NVME SSD performance). However, some optimization is needed to address the single core performance issues with old game titles which require 4 cores only. Nonetheless, its rendering power is unmatched and currently only productivity dominant CPU among busy enthusiasts. In the meantime, you may get this incredible processor from trusted retailers or from online like Amazon or eBay. Links provided down below:
