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 $200 USD 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]

The Ryzen 5 5600X is both the entry-level and best value for money 5000 series CPU. The 5600X is a hex-core 12 thread processor with a base clock speed of 3.7 GHz boosting to 4.6 GHz. It has 35 MB of cache and a TDP rating of 65W. A cooler is included in the MSRP of $300 USD, but cheap after-market coolers (such as the $20 GAMMAXX 400) are far more effective and therefore worth the upgrade. Notably, AMD’s new Zen 3 architecture has vastly improved single-core performance and lower memory latency, which leads to a significant effective speed advantage over its predecessor, the 3600X. Last year, AMD’s marketers secured significant sales of the 3000 series CPUs despite a 15% performance deficit against lower priced Intel parts. The games, specific scenes, software/hardware settings and choice of competing hardware were often cherry picked, undisclosed, and inconsistent from one product to the next. Now that AMD have actually achieved both top tier performance and market share, their marketing machinery is focused on price hikes. Users that do not wish to pay a marketing premium should investigate Intel’s $190 USD i5-9600K, which, when paired with a 2060 Super, delivers higher EFps in four out of five of today’s most popular games. Allocating the savings to a higher tier GPU will result in an unquestionably superior gaming PC. [Nov '20 CPUPro]
