Performance per £ Value
Cinebench-weighted performance value shows a reasonable offering from the Ryzen 7 5800X. Intel’s £20 more expensive and slightly faster Core i9-10850K offers a similar level of value, but the Core i7-10700K does not keep trend.
It comes as no surprise to see then Ryzen 7 beating AMD’s halo 16-core offerings in terms of value. However, the 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X and 3900XT both offer better performance and better value albeit at higher price points.
This chart highlights the tough position that AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X is placed in. The chip offers solid value versus Intel competitors. But versus its own Ryzen 9 siblings, there look to be better performing options for around £30-90 extra outlay.
