Average Bench: 97.9% (59th of 1385)

Based on 148,645 user benchmarks.  Devices: 178BFBFF00A20F10, 178BFBFF00A20F12 Model: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-Core Processor

The Ryzen 7 5800X is one of four new processors from AMD’s latest range of Zen 3 CPUs. The new architecture is more power efficient than Zen 2 and also yields significant performance improvements. All four new CPUs have the ‘X’ nomenclature, indicating that they are tuned to their maximum clock speeds out-of-box. The 5800X has 8 cores and 16 threads with base/boost clock speeds of 3.8/4.7 GHz, 36 MB of cache and a 105W TDP. At $449 USD, the 5800X is relatively expensive, but it still offers far better value than the 5900X. A 500 series motherboard is recommended but the new Zen 3 CPUs will work with most 400 series motherboard following a BIOS update (expected in Q1 2021). At AMD’s launch presentation, they said they finally had the best CPUs for gaming. Our benchmarks show that the 5800X is comparable to Intel’s $175 USD 11400F. Gamers that do not wish to pay “marketing fees” can invest those savings in a better GPU which will produce an unquestionably faster gaming PC. [Nov '20 CPUPro]

AMD are great at selling junk. They pee in the well with fake comments, glorified cheerleaders on youtube and paid magazine reviews. My POS PC still crashes randomly. Everybody needs to call the rats out instead of letting them get away with it. —Nov '20

coming from a 3600 i can definitely say i like this upgrade. despite alot of complaints about it running hot. it does out of the box. but once you actually understand the relationship between the curve optimizer and other mobo specific settings i finally get it to run 4.91ghz @ 1.27 max temp on ek aio 76C. the biggest drop in temp tho was lapping it like my 3600. 7c drop right from that. definitely like it.
