The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X is a high-end 16-core, hyperthreaded (SMT) Vermeer Series desktop processor. With 32 threads, the new flagship offers as many threads as the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X. Introduced on October 8, 2020, the Ryzen 9 5950X is the fastest 16-core processor and is specified at 105 watts TDP.
The Ryzen 9 5950X clocks at 3.4 GHz base clock rate and reaches up to 4.9 GHz in turbo mode on a single core. However, when all 16 cores are loaded, up to 4.5 GHz is still possible.
The performance of the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X is consistently very high in all applications and has been significantly improved over the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X. AMD was able to improve especially the single thread performance and even beats the Intel Core i9-10900K in this discipline. The multi-thread performance is excellent due to the 16 cores.
The internal structure of the processor has not changed fundamentally at first glance. The CCX structure has changed a bit compared to Zen2, because now a CCX consists of up to 8 CPU cores. So each individual core can access the complete L3 cache (32 MByte). Furthermore the CCX modules are connected to each other via the same I/O die, which we already know from Zen2. According to AMD, the Infinity fabric should now reach clock rates of up to 2 Ghz, which in turn allows a RAM clock of 4,000 MHz without performance loss.
For the manufacturing processes, AMD relies on TSMC's 7 nm process for the Vermeer processor cores, although the I/O die is still produced on 12 nm Globalfoundries process.
In gaming, the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X is consistently impressive thanks to the significantly improved IPC, and easily outperforms the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X. The AMD Ryzen 9 5950X is the perfect CPU for content creators, because in addition to gaming, the new flagship also masters simultaneous streaming. However, if you only want to play games, you are well advised to take a closer look at the cheaper AMD Ryzen 7 5800X or the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X.
The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is an 8-core desktop processor with Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT), which allows it to process 16 threads simultaneously. With its launch on 08.10.2020, it is the fastest 8-core processor from AMD. The second fastest 8-core processor will be the AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT, followed by the more economical AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, also with 8 cores and 16 threads.
The Ryzen 7 5800X clocks with a base clock of 3.8 GHz and reaches up to 4.7 GHz on one core in turbo mode. When all 8 cores are utilized, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, like the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X, achieves up to 4.5 GHz.
The performance of AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is consistently very good in all applications. Especially in multi-threaded applications, the native 8-core can show its strengths, although the single-core performance has been significantly improved compared to the older Zen 2 architecture.
At first glance, the internal structure of the processor has not changed fundamentally. The CCX structure has changed somewhat compared to Zen2, because now a CCX consists of up to 8-CPU cores. So each individual core can access the complete L3 cache (32 MByte). Furthermore the CCX modules are connected to each other via the same I/O die, which we already know from Zen2. According to AMD, the Infinity-Fabric should now reach clock rates of up to 2Ghz, which in turn allows a RAM clock of 4.000 MHz without performance loss.
For the manufacturing processes, AMD also relies on TSCM for the Vermeer processors for the 7nm production of the CPU cores, although the I/O die is still supplied in 12nm by Globalfoundries.
In games, AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X can convince with its significantly improved IPC and even put Intel in its place. With the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, gamers are well prepared for the future as simultaneous streaming is no problem with the new Ryzen 7 5800X. Semi-professional content creators, who need even more power, can choose a Ryzen 9 5900X or the Ryzen 9 5950X on the shelf.
