AMD 5800X Reviews

the thing auto-Overclocked to 4.85!!!

By Alex
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-25

easy setup, no broken connectors, no problems - it's still new but the overall reviews for it are great! we'll see... after setting up on a B550 - i decided to let it auto-adjust clock performance in BIOS it's base-clock showed 3.8ghz - pretty standard after reboot it Shown a 4.85 while recommended MAX was 4.7!... i limited it for now to no higher than 4.7 until i finish optimizing...

Much needed upgrade at an incredible price!

I was able to buy this CPU for $319 and no tax thanks to a B&H $75 off coupon - an absolutely unreal price. This was the first time I've upgraded my CPU since building my tower with a 2nd gen i5 and it's awesome. The only drawback is that the new chips don't come with a cooler in the box, so you'll need to have thermal paste on hand.

Good CPU

Can't go wrong with 8c/16t. If you know you dont need the 4 extra cores, go for a 5600x.

Well worth the buy

Coming from a 6700k this was a massive upgrade and I'm very pleased overall with the performance of this CPU. Paired with a 3070 and this thing is fire. Would have gone for a 5900x if they were in stock but I'm happy with the 5800x, especially for the price being almost 150 less than it's bigger brother.

Even when u get a nominal one

By Doug
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2021-09-09

droped it in and tested it with passmark. nominal ratings on this chip are 28k , mine clocked in at 24k. I tweaked it up using the new curve optimizer where you can pull voltage back a bit, one core at a time. and got it close to 28k. The rest of the setting made little difference when compared to reducing the heat loss with the Curve Optimizer settings. In the end, mine is a good 10% lowered on the single core speed, while surpassing 5ghz on the multicore test on 7 of the 8 cores. Not sure why, and it was tedious work. It replace a 3600xt which was running effortlessly ( after also tweaking) at 4.5ghz. The scores for testing are great for tuning. These chips are so much better that you do not loose. My system has an x470 board and a single fan water cooler.

great processor especially for photo editing
