Product Overview

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is a desktop CPU based on AMD's 4th-gen Zen (Zen 3) architecture. With 8 cores and 16 threads, the 5800X delivers a base clock of 3.8GHz and a boost clock of up to 4.7GHz.
The Ryzen 7 5800X has 256KB + 256KB L1 cache, 4MB L2 cache, and 32MB L3 cache. It provides 24 lanes of PCIe 4.0 and has a default TDP of 105W.
The Zen 3 architecture uses TSMC's 7nm process for the chiplets and GlobalFoundries' 14nm processor for the I/O die. Like other Ryzen 5000-series processors, the 5800X supports DDR4 up to 3200MHz. It is also unlocked. With AMD Ryzen Master Utility, the 5800X makes it easy to manage overclocking.

Sentiment Score 79%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X isn't the absolute fastest of what Zen 3 has to offer in content creation. But its balance of price to performance in both gaming and content work is what really sets this specific Zen 3 CPU apart. It's a great gaming chip, to be sure, but if a pure gaming CPU is what you are after and money is short, we'd still recommend considering cheaper options.

Pros
  • Extremely fast for gaming and content creation
  • Strong performance in 1080p and 4K gaming
  • Stable overclock
Cons
  • Pricey for a gaming CPU

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
AMD's Zen 3 architecture is based on the same 7nm manufacturing process as its predecessor. AMD changed the Core Die (CCD) design to only allow for one Core Complex per die. Each CCX now has 8 cores – that's up from 4 cores per CCX on Zen 2. On top of that, each core direct access to 32MB of L3 cache, which is incredibly important for gaming performance.

Pros
  • Great single-core and multi-core performance
  • Great value for money
Cons
  • Higher price than AMD Ryzen 7 3800X

Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following***:
Zen 3 uses the same 12nm I/O Die (IOD) and has 2.09 billion transistors. The IOD controllers still come with two chiplets. The chip comes with one CCD with all eight cores enabled, while CPUs with 12 or 12 or 16 cores are available. Zen 3 has unified its L3 cache into one 32MB contiguous cluster.

Pros
  • Higher performance than Ryzen 7 3800XT
  • Supports PCIe 4.0
  • 4.7 GHz all-core boost
Cons
  • L3 cache is limited to 32MB
  • Only one 8-core chiplets

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following***:
The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is an excellent all-round desktop processor. It offers a competitive performance in every area, including gaming and productivity. Intel's Core i5-11K is a better value for money, while the Ryzen 9 3900X is a more cost-effective alternative for multi-threaded workloads. Its low power consumption and compatibility with old motherboards means you won't have to pay lots of money for other components when upgrading motherboards.

Pros
  • Excellent multi-threaded performance
  • High-quality components
  • Good value for money
Cons
