Precision Boost 2

AMD Ryzen processors monitor the system's energy consumption, temperatures, and other factors to automatically raise clock speeds, allowing applications to perform faster.

Precision Boost Overdrive

Precision Boost Overdrive technology takes advantage of your compatible motherboard's design to boost clock speeds higher and for longer periods of time. It also allows you overclock the processor at the touch of a button.

AMD StoreMI Technology

AMD StoreMI technology helps to improve load times and overall system performance by combining solid-state drives and mechanical hard drives into a single hybrid storage drive. Frequently used files and programs are cached onto the fast SSD while other files are stored on the high-capacity HDD.

AMD Ryzen VR Ready Premium

Ryzen VR Ready Premium processors are designed to meet or exceed the recommended specifications from the top HMD manufacturers, including Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality for smooth performance.

Best CPU ever

I ordered the 5950x on a Saturday night along with B&H being closed for a holiday and by Wednesday it was at my doorstep. Very timely shipping excellent packaging checkout was a breeze. Would recommend buying through your store anytime. As far as the processor it's everything I could ask for yes it's pricey but it performs wonderfully. Keep in mind you must account for it's heat output but other than that it's great.

Fastest CPU I've ever used.

Awesome upgrade from a Ryzen 7 3700. Major speed improvements and noticeable snappiness in everything.

Powerful

With 16 cores (32 threads), this processor has power to run multiple applications simultaneously. Not only that, but it runs cool while doing it. I have undervolted mine to further reduce heat while I push it to run youtube videos, rip DVD's, keep a dozen tabs open in my browser, watch my closed circuit cameras, and keep up with my Discord and Telegram channels. I love it, so will you.

Does The Job

This cpu runs hotter than it's intel counterpart. I was concerned at first, and kind of obsessed with monitoring the temp. But it is stable and maintains constant temps so I quit worrying about it. I've had no issues with it and it works great in my custom build.

Faster than Amazon
