Ryzen 7 3700x vs Ryzen 9 3900x

So I'm planning to upgrade to Ryzen 9 3900X. How much added frames can I get if I do this? Around what range of improvement do I expect to get, will it around be +10 to 20 more fps?  


MSI X570 Gaming Edge Wifi Board
Ryzen 7 3700x (Current)
MSI Armor RTX 2070 8gb 
32gb 3000mhz TForce Nighthawk RAM
500gb NVMe Samsung 970 Evo Plus (for my main games that I play)

As far as gaming goes, there's effectively no difference between the two, look at the TomsHardware review, simply because games can't take advantage of the additional CPU cores. You'll experience a much greater performance increase by upping your GPU to a 2070 Super, where you will see double digit FPS increases.,6214.html

I see, Well the only reason why I'm planning to take the Ryzen 9 for now, is that my current budget for this upgrade is about $600 (yea R9 costs about 600 ish in the Philippines) I was thinking of saving up for a 2080ti around ber-months. 


nVidia's new generation of cards will be out before then, and are supposedly 40-50% faster with twice the ray tracing capability, so that $1200 2080 Ti may be the next $500 RTX 3070.

I checked out RTX 2080 Super, I can probably make it by next month. Do you think its worth it? Or should I just go for the Ryzen 9 now and wait for new gpu's end of the year? O_O

ferrrrrrrrrrkkk this is so confusing.. hahaha I hate this stage of "upgrading" 


Honestly, neither, because later this year AMD will be releasing the Ryzen 4000 series based on the Zen 3 archetecture which, according to Lisa Su, will be as revolutionary as Zen 1 was, and will deliver on the order of 50% increased performance. There are no details out now on if it will fit into existing Socket AM4 boards, or if they will be using a new socket, but again you'd be paying a massive price premium for a high end part which may end up being only as powerful as this year's mid range.

I'm still using my 1800X and Fury Nano for those reasons...
