The eight-core AMD Ryzen 7 5800X puts up a surprisingly powerful challenge to the Core i9-10900K. For most folks it's overkill solely for use in gaming at 1080p or 1440p. But anyone seeking a well-engineered—and well-rounded—high-end processor that won't break the bank should keep it front and center.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
AMD's Zen 3 architecture is based on the same 7nm manufacturing process as its predecessor, but AMD has completely redesigned it from the ground up. Each CCX now has 8 cores – that's up from 4 cores per CCX on Zen 2, greatly reducing latency between cores. On top of that, each core direct access to 32MB of L3 cache, which is incredibly important for gaming performance.
Reviewers from Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
The $449 Ryzen 7 5800X slots into AMD's Zen 3-powered product stack with eight cores and sixteen threads. AMD's premium could be a disadvantage if Intel becomes more aggressive on pricing, but AMD's suggested selling prices rarely manifest at retail. Intel's $440 Core i9-10850K comes into the picture with ten cores and 20 threads.
Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X desktop processor is built upon Zen 3 architecture with a 7nm process. With 8 cores, 16 threads and max clock speeds of up to 4.6GHz, it looks to have all of the spec credentials to challenge Intel's Rocket Lake CPUs. If you want a processor that performs well at both content creation and gaming, then this may well be the best value option currently available.
