AMD Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 5 3600X - Temperature Tests
Based on the latest 7nm process from TSMC, AMD Ryzen 3000 processors offer a major shift over the previous Zen and Zen+ based processors. The 7nm process node helps AMD achieve massive efficiency numbers on higher core count chip that put them ahead of Intel's 14nm based families.
As for temperatures, we used our Cryorig R1 Ultimate with the AM4 retention kit during the overall tests. The results gathered during full load and under idle cases was pretty good. The chip remains cooler than Intel's HEDT parts and even the new Coffee Lake mainstream CPUs which is impressive since they are using a 14nm++ process.
