The AMD Ryzen 7 5800 and Ryzen 9 5900 are two new CPU SKUs for the performance and enthusiast sectors of the desktop PC market. The Zen 3 parts are OEM-only processors, which means they should eventually start appearing in premium pre-built gaming systems throughout 2021. The new members of the Ryzen 5000 series come with reduced TDPs: 65 W compared to 105 W for the Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 9 5900X.

The Ryzen 7 5800 processor comes with 8 cores and 16 threads, and it has a 36 MB total cache amount. As for clocks, users can expect a base rate of 3.4 GHz with the boost clock reaching up to 4.6 GHz. This processor should appeal to those looking for a desktop PC that can offer performance-level processing but without consuming as much power as an X-branded SKU.

For enthusiasts, the Ryzen 9 5900 delivers 12 cores and 24 threads with a total memory cache of 70 MB and clocks of 3.0 GHz to 4.7 GHz. AMD has benchmarked this processor against the Ryzen 9 3900, and apparently the Zen 3 part produced an average of 24% faster rates at 1920x1080 (high settings) than the Zen 2 predecessor. Testing was carried out over 12 popular games in combination with a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
