Pros: -Same thermal envelope as the 5800x using a corsair h115i Pro XT
-maintains its max boost clock
-G.SKILL Trident Z Neo Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) F4-3600C14D-32GTZN - Running at 3800CL4 1:1 just like my 5800x
-Could actually run ram at 2000MHZ 1:1 but to many whea errors - 5800x wouldn't even post
-Better frame times\lows\average and max FPS in all my games i play over the 5800x - (Including X4 foundations and planetside 2) @ 3440x1440p max settings
-MSI X570S ace max BCLK OC now available with newest bios
Cons: None- Yes productivity scores are lower but I only game and that's it.
Overall Review: -Very impressed. Paired with my 6800XT, i used to see massive FPS drops (below 60) in Games like planetside 2 when there are too many things happening on the screen. Now? No drops below 70fps in those same battles. Same with X4 foundations ; used to drop below 40 in places like Nopileos Fortune 2 now it doesn't go below 60 and at times runs at a solid 100fps. This game usually kills the CPU.
Overall Review: I swapped my 5600x for this and I have another system with a 12600K ... All I can say is this processor is great. And for about a third of games it's absolutely insane...
Back 4 Blood, a game that typically has frame stutter due to all of the many AI characters runs flawlessly now. 3080ti with this rarely drops below 200fps.
Pros: It's fast!
Cons: Runs a little warm under full load, but for gaming it doesn't go above 78C on an air cooler.
Overall Review: With AM5 around the corner, this CPU is a great way to end the AM4 line up, although I'm in no rush to upgrade my platform to AM5. This CPU is 26% on average faster than my R7 3800X at stock. It handles anything I throw at it with ease. Paired with a recently acquired 3070Ti, it's a beast!
Pros: 5800X with steroids, the new 3D is incredible fast and consumes low wattage, it has the perfect balance for any demanding task while excels in gaming.
Best of both worlds.
Cons: As opposed to my previous 5800X I can no longer boot to OC 4X8GB 3800CL14 fclk 1900, the sweet spot for my new X3D is 3666 13-13-13-13-33 fclk 1833 with better Dram voltage instead.
it gained me lower timings which is also very nice.
Overall Review: Highly recommended! 5/5.
Pros: latency issues gone yes got rid of 5950x for this beast and not looking back thank you AMD and Newegg!!
Overall Review: Highly recommended
Pros: I have a dedicated gaming PC for sim racing and having the lowest possible latency and highest FPS is critical. Cooling is not an issue as I use the Corsair iCUE H150i RGB PRO XT Liquid CPU Cooler and the 5800X3D is cooler than the 5800X I replaced.
Cons: Not being able to overclock may not work for some users. I don't OC because I need rock solid stability for 24 hours or more in endurance races. If you are a streamer or have to use your PC for more than gaming the 5950X may be a better option.
Overall Review: Great value for a dedicated gaming PC. Pairs great with NVIDIA 3090 FE and Gigabyte X570 AORUS Ultra 1.2 motherboard.
Pros: More cache than my wallet.
Snappy 8 core CPU with 16 threads.
Will provide a noticeable boost in frame rates in titles not already pushing your GPU to 100% utilization.
Not hamstrung by high quality "slow" RAM due to large cache unlike the other Ryzen chip.
Not 16 cores.
Will likely not hold a candle to Ryzen 7800X in most games.
Does not benefit from my CL14 RAM.
Overall Review: I bought this 30 minutes after launch and upgraded from a 3900X. Since I game a lot, I am the target demographic. It's not in stock often and expensive, but in games, the 12900 is the closest competitor and those cost way more. Some Zen 2 and Zen 3 parts were intended to have V-Cache at launch, but TSMC only recently perfected the tech needed to fab these 3D stacked beauties. While it's fascinating to see what we *could* have had in 2019, I'm appreciative of the tech today.
So, what should you expect? If your current CPU can push games to 100% GPU utilization, those games will see minimal to no performance boost. The same applies to heavily single threaded games. Titles not able to push the GPU to 100% utilization on your current CPU will see boosts if they are multi-threaded. Examples would be Cyberpunk 2077 running with ultra settings on at 1440p - this did not see a boost from my 3900X. Fallout 76 running with ultra settings at 1440p on the other hand never dips below 100FPS now and can shoot up to 350-ish FPS. Previously this title would average around 70-80 FPS.
Overall I'm impressed with the 5800X3D, and I think it'll be a solid choice for gaming for most folks. Yes, AM4 as a socket will likely see no more launches, but this chip will be able to run games at high FPS for the next several years. The motherboards are affordable, and you don't need fancy CL14 RAM to have good performance. A solid X570 motherboard, some CL16 3200 RAM, a PCIe 4.0 SSD, and a high end GPU (6800XT/3080+) will give you enough performance to forget about upgrading for a long time.
My system specs:
5800X3D, Aorus Master X570, Aorus Master 6800XT, 32GB Trident Z Neo 3600 CL14-14-14, 2TB Corsair MP600 Pro, Noctua NH-U12A
Pros: Just finished building a new rig with a 5800x3d, 6950xt, x570s ACE MAX, 32GB 3600CL14, 2TB Gen4 SSD
And man what a BEAST for 1440p gaming 🔥🔥🔥
Overall Review: If your PC is mainly for gaming than this is as good as it gets 💪🏽
