The 3800x is $329 also. I picked up one of those because you get TWO free games instead of one. Also, my unscientific testing has led me to believe that the 3800x might be slightly better silicon (or at least maybe a slightly better memory controller capable of tighter timings).

Reviews show 3% performance from best silicon 3800x to worst silicon 3700x and 2-4c more heat, and 12 more ways power draw so that alone ruled out the 3800x for me.

But yeah the 3800x is a binned 3700x the worst 3800x will clock what the best 3700x does

I did end up getting the 3800x because after selling the games it’s basically the same price, plus a higher resale value at Zen 3 time
