AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU Review

Blender Classroom Benchmark

The 5800X outperforms the cheaper 10700K by a wide margin thanks to its 86 second reduction in render time. The Eight-core Zen 3 chip’s performance is closer to that of the Intel Core i9-10850K, though Intel’s £20 more expensive 10-core processor is 30 seconds quicker and even retains its lead when the Zen 3 5800X is manually overclocked.

If you were looking at purchasing the 5800X for multi-threaded Blender usage, the 12-core Zen 2 offerings look to be more valuable solutions at the price point.

As a cool side note, the 4.7GHz overclocked 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X offers exactly double the performance of the 4.7GHz overclocked 8-core Ryzen 7 5800X. That’s some excellent scaling from Zen 3 in Blender.

V-Ray CPU Benchmark

The Ryzen 7 5800X shows another strong performance victory of 25% over the cheaper Core i7-10700K. Versus the more expensive Core i9-10850K, the Ryzen 7 5800X provides roughly a performance tie by showing a slightly lower score at stock and a within error margin difference when overclocked.

Tough competition, however, comes from the 12-core Ryzens. The Zen 2 3900XT costs only a little more than the 5800X but is 15% faster. Meanwhile, the Zen 3 Ryzen 9 5900X is 21% more costly but offers 42% higher performance.

In this type of use case, those 12-cores both seem like better value options than the Zen 3 8-core depending on how rigid your budget is.

Leo recently sat through an Intel briefing relating to benchmarking laptops and focusing on performance both with an without the power adapter connected. Throughout, Intel was keen to highlight the AMD drops performance by a higher percentage in their own testing. Luke and Leo discuss this briefing and wonder why Intel is so keen to publicise AMD's weaknesses rather than focusing on Intel's own strengths.
