AMD Ryzen 7 5800X : Verdict, Price + Availability
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X : Our Verdict!
Thanks to the new Zen 3 core optimisations and SoC design, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X offers a nice leap forward in performance.
Its single-core performance has been improved significantly over its predecessors, and so has its multi-core performance, offering a nice boost to both content creation and gaming performance.
Gamers will favour the cheaper Ryzen 5 5600X, but this is a great option for those who also need serious multi-core performance for content creation work.
Another great point about the Ryzen 7 5800X – even though it uses a new microarchitecture, it continues to use the AM4 socket
If you have an existing AMD 500 Series motherboard, you can pop it in after a BIOS upgrade.
Those on AMD 400 Series motherboards will have to wait until Q1 2020, before they receive BIOS upgrades to support Zen 3.
But while the Ryzen 7 5800X’s performance may be a leap forward, so is its price tag…
You may recall that the last-generation Ryzen 7 3800X had a launch price of $399 (RM1,799), with a nice Wraith Prism cooler.
The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X costs substantially more at $449 (RM2,049), and no longer comes with a very nice bundled cooler!
On the other hand, it comes with a free copy of the upcoming game – Far Cry 6 Standard Edition...
So who should, or should NOT, buy the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X?
- Buy : If you want the best possible 8-core processor for a new gaming or content creation system.
- Buy : If you are upgrading from a first-generation Ryzen processor.
- Buy : If you need more computing cores than your current system.
- Consider : If you are upgrading from a second-generation Ryzen processor.
- Skip : If you are already using a 3rd Gen Ryzen processor.
