Average Bench: 99.8% (6th of 1276)

Based on 3,077 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00A20F10 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 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 $250 USD cheaper i5-9600K. Gamers that do not wish to pay “marketing fees” can invest those savings in a better GPU which will produce an unquestionably better 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

Waste of money for gamers.—Nov '20

AMD screwed up big time with the pricing for this chip. There are no bad chips, only bad prices and really if you want a Ryzen for gaming 5600x is much better price to performance and if you want a workstation that benefits from more than 6 cores there's zero reason to not go for a 5900x or even a 5950x given how much better they perform. This chip is in no man's land and is not worth it in any usecase for it's current MSRP. And to make it worse this gen is a DEAD END in upgradeability since it's the last AM4 socket generation, which is yet another reason to just get a 5900/5950x instead... The 5800x even managed to lose to Intel's 10th gen 8c/16t i7-10700k in price to performance for gaming which is disappointing.

The ryzen 7 5800x beats the ryzen 7 3800x by A LOT

It appears that this one would be good for essentially everything while the 5600X would be similar but slightly worse for CPU intensive programs.

This new 5800X is a powerhouse, but its 449USD pricing and apparently disappointing thermal performance puts it in a weird spot right now. Let us hope for a 5700X in the upcoming months...
