The 5800X will bring you 8 cores, 16 threads, a base clock of 3.8 GHz, boost up to 4.7 GHz, 32MB of L3 cache, and a TDP of 105W. AMD has really focused on single-core and gaming performance with the 5000 series of processors. That means that this processor not only can compete against Intel in gaming performance, but also in multi-core workloads. At $449 this processor is great for those who want a little more than the $299 6-core, 12-thread 5600X offers, but didn’t want to take the plunge into the $549 12-core, 24-thread 5900X. Let’s take a look and see what this processor can do!
