AMD Ryzen 7 5800X

As we come to the end of the year we are rounding up our reviews of AMD’s Ryzen 5000 Series processors. We’ve already taken a look at the Ryzen 9 5950X, Ryzen 9 5900X, and Ryzen 5 5600X. Obviously the Ryzen 7 5800X will slot in between the 5600X and 5900X. The 5800X will bring you 8 cores, 16 threads, a base clock of 3.8 GHz, boost up to 4.7 GHz, 32MB of L3 cache, and a TDP of 105W. AMD has really focused on single-core and gaming performance with the 5000 series of processors.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X

The Ryzen 5 5600X does land at higher pricing than we’re accustomed to – the $300 price tag is now the entry point for Zen 3 chips. That will change as AMD introduces its Ryzen 3 and APU models, but it is disappointing for value seekers. Unfortunately, AMD’s recommended retail pricing rarely has any relation to reality at the checkout lane, so it’s hard to project where pricing will land in a few months when availability improves. For now, crushing shortages make it difficult to score a Ryzen 5 5600X, even at recommended pricing.

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X

Core counts of mainstream desktop processors have been increasing over the past few years.  The big jump was with AMD’s Ryzen 3000 series were we saw not only a 12-core chip, but also a 16-core chip!  Bringing 16 cores to the mainstream is just insane!  It does however provide amazing multi-core performance you won’t find in other mainstream parts and will save you money from going to HEDT route.  For those who might not need quad channel memory and more PCI-Express lanes a 16-core mainstream chip would make sense.

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X & 5900X – Breaking 5GHz

The Ryzen 5000 series processors land at significantly higher recommended price points than the previous-gen models, and you’ll have to bring your own cooler. The price for entry on the low end is also higher than we’re accustomed to, not to mention that you’ll have to drop an extra $150 to move up from the six-core Ryzen 5 5600X to the eight-core Ryzen 7 3800X. At least 500-series motherboards are plentiful, and we now have B550 motherboards for budget platforms.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X

The Ryzen 5 5600X takes the mid-range by storm with six cores and twelve threads powered by the Zen 3 architecture fabbed on the 7nm process. That potent combination equates to a ~19% improvement in instruction per cycle (IPC) throughput, making the 5600X an easy choice for our list of Best CPUs. Other fine-grained improvements, like a vastly optimized boosting algorithm, improved memory overclocking, and reworked cache topology erases the last traces of Intel’s performance advantages while delivering a new level of power efficiency. In fact, as we’ll detail below, the Ryzen 5 5600X is the most power-efficient desktop PC chip we’ve ever tested.

AMD Precision Boost Overdrive 2 (PBO2) – Coming in December

If you’ve already bought, or plan on buying, a Ryzen 5000 processor, AMD just made the deal a whole lot sweeter. AMD’s Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) introduced one-click hassle-free overclocking to the masses for the Ryzen lineup of processors. Still, while the tech boosts performance in multi-threaded workloads, it has long failed to benefit single-threaded workloads. That changes in December when AMD’s new Precision Boost Overdrive 2 (PBO2) lands in BIOS patches. The new PBO2 boosts single-threaded performance while retaining the benefits of the existing multi-core boosts, and even adds a little extra oomph there, too.

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X

Traditionally, this was a task handled by HEDT systems in the past, but since the launch of Zen 2+ and the 3950X, AMD has brought the ability to the mainstream platforms and continues it with the Ryzen 9 5950X.

As many of you know, the Ryzen 9 5950X is a 2x CCD 1x IOD chiplet design, the full Zen 3. It offers 16 cores and 32 threads with SMT supporting a base clock of 3.4GHz and a boost clock of 4.9GHz. 64MB of L3 cache is shared across all cores with 24 PCIe 4.0 lanes for support.

AMD Ryzen 5000 Series on AMD 300 Series Boards?

The A320M-HDV R4.0 is a budget motherboard that retails for $64.99 and features a rather modest six-phase power delivery subsystem. However, the A320M-HDV R4.0 does support the Ryzen 9 3950X. Technically, it should be able to handle the Ryzen 5000 chips without a sweat. Logically, PCIe 4.0 is disabled due to the nature of the motherboard. Whether the processor works flawlessly or not is uncertain since the forum user didn’t provide any comment or benchmarks.
