The Power of 2 years and 7nm architecture
The AMD processor being produced today are leaps and bounds better than the processors of even two years ago. Today we will compare two processors that hit the market just two years apart the AMD Ryzen 7 1700X and the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X. These two processors are very similar both strutting 8 physical and 2 logical core per physical core and both have very similar clock speed with the 1700X having 3.4 GHZ and the later having a clock of 3.6 GHz and both fall under what is considered the performance tier. So now that we have the basics of what we are comparing let’s dive into the comparison of the two.
The Raw data on AMD Processors
The first thing that we should look at as is their CPU Marks which tells us each of the CPU’s performance compare to other similar processors and the higher the mark the better the processor performed compared to similar processors. This is done by benchmarking programs that select several tasks meant to push the processor and see what it can do and then compares its results to other similar CPU’s and then assigns a score to it. In these benchmarking tests, the Ryzen 7 3700X scored 22947 while the 1700X scored 15764. So, this tells us that the 3700X performed 45% better than its compatriot compared to other similar processors in the assigned tasks.
The next thing that we should look at is how each induvial thread performs because the previous tests checked the performance of the CPU as a whole and each thread. The threads are virtual versions of the CPU’s core which is what does operations, so by having more that one thread we can do a different operation at the same time. So, the scores for threads is 2,492 for the 3700X and 1,947 for the 1700X. which means not only does the 3700X perform better than the 1700X overall each induvial thread also of the 3700X performs better than the threads of the 1700X.
The Power use
The last thing we will look at is the power consumption because it doesn’t matter much that the 3700X performs better than the 1700X if it consumes triple the power. This is where you would think the older processor would use less power because it has less transistor to power but it’s the newer 3700X that uses less power. If we use the processor at 75% of its capacity for 8 hours a day in a year the 3700X will cost $35.59 to run while the 1700X will uses $52.01 to run for a year. Now we that we have some basic benchmark data which is better?
Which is better?
Choosing which of the two processors is best is not a simple task, it will depend on what you will be using it for. But if you want to know which of these two processors has performed better on these tasks it is easier to say we can see that 3700X has outperformed the 1700X. It performed better on the benchmark tests where it was tested for its overall performance and the single thread tests. We can see the improvement AMD has had over these past two years as the new processor outperformed the older ones and consume less power making them more economical. It is also worth noting that the older uses a 14-nanometer architecture and the newer one uses a 7-nanometer architecture. This just means that there are more transistors inside, and the design of the circuits are smaller.
