Power to game and content creation for the enthusiast that needs more


AMD is no stranger when it comes to its performance powered processor, yet the price is reasonable for its consumer when it comes to gaming and productivity processors. This is not meant for the budget minded consumers, yet this more towards the power user. Today we will have the short review and performance benchmark for the Zen3 AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 9 5900X. The processor is priced RM2049 for Ryzen 7 and RM2499 for Ryzen 9 5900X at the time of this writing


Both Ryzen 7 5800X & Ryzen 9 5900X comes with the Processor, Warranty statement and the Ryzen sticker. Its just as simple as that and all you need to do is plug it in to any compatible B450 boards and above and configure the rest via the Motherboard BIOS settings. Do take note that for certain B450 boards, a BIOS/UEFI update may be required.

Verdict and thoughts

Both the Ryzen 7 5800X & Ryzen 9 5900X is definitely the processor to go if you are upgrading from the Ryzen 2xxx and Ryzen 3 3xxx series. If you are currently on the Ryzen 7 3xxx series, it will not be a wise upgrade unless you are currently on any processors on 4 cores or below . For consumers that want to build a new PC, no doubt the both will be a great choice for all purposes, whether its VR, Gaming, Editing, Content Creation or just using Office applications. But should you wanted more on cores and thread especially on more rendering and very heavy editing, then the Ryzen 9 would be a better choice to go. We would recommend at least 16GB of RAM to accommodate the demanding applications today. 


  • Good amount of cache available
  • A capable 1080p/1440p processor on High/Very High settings beyond 144 FPS with a mid to high range graphics card
  • 4K ready for gaming over 60FPS if paired with a powerful graphics card


  • A520/B550/X570 boards required, while most B450 boards is compatible with BIOS update, older boards may not be compatible with the processor
  • Wraith Cooling is not included

Special Thanks to ASROCK for providing the motherboard for this review & AMD for loaning the processors
