AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D review roundup

  • PCGamer – “It’s a technically elegant, efficient CPU that delivers on its promises. It can’t quite beat Intel’s hulking brute of a Core i9 12900KS in the frame rate war, but it still offers the majority of AMD users an easy upgrade path to gaming performance that is not far off. And for a fraction of the price and power demands, too.”
  • PCMag – “AMD has touted the Ryzen 7 5800X3D as its best gaming processor to date, but this was borne out in our benchmarks only at exceedingly high 1080p frame rates. It’s certainly no slouch in other scenarios but it’s not dominant enough in the games we tested to make it a clear victor given the launch list price.”
  • Techradar – “There were several times while testing the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor that I had to look over my notes and mutter under my breath that “this can’t be right,” as I ran the benchmarks again. The numbers held up, and after days of grueling testing it’s indisputable that AMD has delivered one of the best gaming processors we’ve ever tested.”

Based on the reviews so far, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D seems to offer great gaming performance at 1080p resolution. The additional L3 cache significantly improves the gaming performance, with reviewers calling it the best gaming processor AMD has created. However, for creating content, development, and general PC use, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is on the same level in terms of performance as other Ryzen chips. If you already have an AM4 motherboard on your system, then the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D upgrade is worth getting.
