Background on AMD Ryzen CPU
AMD's Ryzen 5000 Series of processors are focused on providing the best per-core performance, while maintaining the excellent multi-threaded processing which AMD has become known for. Increases to turbo clock speeds and instructions per clock enable fantastic single-threaded results, while the updated Zen 3 microarchitecture includes an improved design for the chip internally.

This is almost exactly the same as AMD's Ryzen 9 3900X processor, just with 100MHz higher maximum boost speed. The practical impact of that is about 1-2% higher performance in most applications, which is almost impossible to notice without actually timing things... but since the price is the same, there is really no reason not to get this model if it is available.
