Ryzen 7 3700X and a Glimpse Of The Future
Wrapping up with the preamble before we get down to business, the Ryzen processors support the Precision Boost Overdrive which can, at the flick of a switch and in 25 MHz increments, overclock the boost speed of your processor by up to 200 MHz. No tweaking needed. All handled behind the scenes by the BIOS. Obviously manually overclocking will always be your best bet, but it's a good step onto the overclocking ladder for people who are nervous about pushing their new purchase beyond stock.
Any time you can be more energy efficient you produce less heat. Naturally we're going to be doing our own testing but if this AMD thermal camera image of a tower cooler is anything to go by, the Ryzen 7 3700X should at least pump less heat into your system.
The flagship of the 3rd Generation Ryzen won't be here just yet, but it's something to save for if you're in the mood for some extreme performance on your desktop.
