AMD Ryzen 7 5800X & Ryzen 9 5950X Review

This week saw the launch of four new high-end CPUs from AMD, and we’ve already tested the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X and the Ryzen 9 5900X in our review a few days ago. They blew us away with their incredible performance, as AMD delivered on all of their promises. Not only that, but they gave Intel a beating that will take some time to heal, especially when it came to AMD’s new and improved single-core performance. Check out the review here.

AMD Ryzen 5000

For this launch, everything is updated. The new CPUs are promising a wider range of frequencies, full PCIe Gen4 support, and ready to deliver their best performance on the latest motherboards. We’ve seen impressive things from the other two CPUs, now the 5800X and the 5950X are here to fill out the range and we expect big things now. With the 5800X targeting the mainstream and enthusiast gamers out there, and the 5950X targeting content creators, we should see some interesting results today.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
