Although it has been around since early November 2020, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor is still a worthy choice for the well-established AM4 socket thanks to the good deals usually available. Those interested can get this chip on Amazon for US$239.99, thanks to a 47% discount applied to the US$449 retail price.
Often compared with its younger twin sibling that features AMD’s innovative 3D stacking technology and has the same list price of US$449, the Ryzen 7 5800X is usually subjected to more generous discounts, so it remains a relevant presence in the desktop processor market. For the time being, those interested can grab it for US$239.99, 47% off the aforementioned list price. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D, on the other hand, only comes with a 27% discount.
The popular Ryzen 7 5800X received no less than 14,533 user reviews on Amazon so far and holds an excellent general rating of 4.8/5. This score is the result of 90% perfect reviews, 6% 4/5 assessments, 1% 3/5, and 2% 1/5 user reviews. On the other hand, the 5800X3D has already dropped to 4.7/5 after just 2,151 ratings.
Since this 8-core, 16-thread desktop processor comes unlocked and has a TDP of 105 W when running at stock speeds, AMD has decided to ship it without adding a stock cooling solution to the package. The manufacturer mentioned that a “high-performance” cooler should be used for best results, but did not highlight liquid cooling this time.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I’ve been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
