AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU Review

We will be outlining the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU’s performance while using X570 motherboards from ASUS and Gigabyte with the AGESA – 1.1.0.0 – BIOS version. A 32GB (2x16GB) kit of 3600MHz CL16 DDR4 memory serves our test system.

Today’s comparison processors come in the form of:

  • Comet Lake Core i9-10900K (10C20T), Core i9-10850K (10C20T), and Core i7-10700K (8C16T).
  • Matisse ‘Zen 2’ Ryzen 9 3900XT (12C24T), Ryzen 9 3950X (16C32T), and Ryzen 7 3700X (8C16T).
  • Vermeer ‘Zen 3’ Ryzen 9 5900X (12C24T), Ryzen 9 5950X (16C32T), and Ryzen 7 5800X (8C16T).


Each processor is tested at its default out-of-the-box settings. For the Intel CPUs, unlimited turbo duration as set by the motherboard with XMP enabled is the operating mode. All-core load frequencies for the tested chips are as follows:

  • Core i7-10700K = 4.7GHz.
  • Core i9-10850K = 4.8GHz.
  • Core i9-10900K = 4.9GHz.
  • Ryzen 7 3700X = around 4.05GHz.
  • Ryzen 9 3900XT = around 4.05GHz.
  • Ryzen 9 3950X = around 3.875GHz.
  • Ryzen 9 5900X = around 4.3-4.4GHz.
  • Ryzen 9 5950X = around 3.85-4.0GHz.
