Then AMD should have marketed it as a 4.3 ghz product, not 4.4. But, some people are actually getting 4.4 Ghz out of their 3700X, while most people are not. So, that begs the question, why?Frankly, the "boost clock issue" is one of marketing, not actual real world performance and value.
If the box said max 4.3 GHz instead of 4.4 GHz, then the reviews would be the same, the conclusions would be the same, the awards would be the same, and people would be happy to see 4.3xx GHz on boost.
Thanks for the review, Dan.
That's my exact use-case for this CPU.. It works great for it!And thanks for the article!
On a side note the 3700X is a fantastic option for those looking to single PC game stream. I've not found a game where CPU contention is seen when streaming while using X264 with a medium profile at 6000 bit rate doing 1080/60.
