This is the most expensive AMD Ryzen CPU you can buy, which as you might suspect is also the fastest and most powerful Ryzen CPU currently in existence. Not even upcoming Zen 4 CPUs will change that.
It's time to compare the Ryzen 7 5700X against the Core i7-12700F, two relatively affordable and powerful 8-core CPUs. We've got a 23 game benchmark covering 1080p and 1440p resolutions.
For testing the Ryzen 7 6800H, we'll see how it performs up against a range of other laptop CPUs, but most importantly Intel's competing Core i7-12700H, and AMD's own predecessor, the Ryzen 7 5800H.
This is a benchmark session, as usual, where we'll be taking an old Ryzen 5 1600 system and upgrade it with the Ryzen 5 5600 to see what's what on gaming.
Today we're taking the Ryzen 7 5800X3D and installing it on a few different B350 and X370 motherboards that were released many years ago to see if it works, and if it does, how well does it work?
A big incentive of going Ryzen over the past few years has been the AM4 platform. AMD promised platform support until at least 2020 and they have delivered, giving users a clear upgrade path from Zen up to Zen 3 CPUs.
On the menu today is another 40 game benchmark -- actually 41. This time it's the 5800X3D against its spiritual predecessor, the 5800X, to see where that massive L3 cache can help out.
We're comparing the Ryzen 5 5600 and Core i5-12400F mainstream CPUs across a range of games at 1080p and 1440p using four tiers of GPU: RTX 3060, RTX 3070, RTX 3080 12GB and RTX 3090 Ti.
