FWIW it really depends on your GPU how much difference the CPU will make..


You're always going to be CPU or GPU bound... at higher resolutions you're more likely to be GPU bound with most GPUs--- so differences between CPUs will appear much smaller.

Here's a story on CPU scaling back then the 3000 series was kind, where if you were running something in 4k max you'd see just a few FPS difference between literally any modern CPU made in the previous 5 or so years.... i3, i5, i7, R5, R9, all meh.

https://www.tomshardware.com/feat...benchmarks

The i9 is barely more than 3% ahead of the i3. The R9 is almost identical to the R5 at 4k.

Hell the nearly decade old now i7-4770k was only a bit over 8% slower than the leader at 4k.

Because the GPU was the bottleneck.


Now drop down to 1440p max and differences get a little bigger... i3 to i9 is now a jump of over 10%... and that poor 4770k is over 25% behind the leader... because some CPU bottleneck is leaking through.

At 1080p the gap is larger still, over 20% between i3 and i9 and almost 50% difference from that 4770k to the leader as your bottleneck is largely in the CPU now not the GPU...




Now, if you're running like a 3060ti or something, you're gonna be GPU bound a lot sooner, meaning the "CPU makes little difference" threshold will drop a fair bit.


In contrast, the 4090 finally gets us to a world where you can be CPU bound even at 4k/Ultra... (which is the only reason I finally moved from my 3600x to a 5800X3D when I upgraded from a 3090 to a 4090, since all my gaming is at 4k)


https://www.techpowerup.com/revie...x3d/2.html

That for example is 53 games benchmarked on a 5800x vs a 5800x3d with a 4090 in both.

Even at 4k you see a near 7% difference on average, and double-digit differences (some in the 20-30% range) in almost a third of the games favoring the 5800x3d... certainly there's many games there still GPU bound, but a shocking # that aren't.


At 1440p with the 4090 the 5800x3d is over 15% ahead of the 5800X on average, and more in the 20-35% range in almost half of em.

That is a loaded question - easy answer both will be good for gaming if you have a good video card. If you are looking more towards productivity then 5900x every day, all day.

Check YouTube gaming comparisons… assuming you mean 5800x3d, the 5800x3d edges it for gaming

Or zero APR interest with Amazon prime CC. But no cash back.

If your primary focus isn't gaming get this cpu. A friend of mine got this, it's a monster. It's amazing how on his 3D modeling software it's smooth like butter.

But if your wanting to game and your gonna pair it with an rtx 3080 or 3090 get the 5800x3d

I'm looking to upgrade my Ryzen 7 2700x . My primary game is msfs 2020. Would this or the 5800x3d be a better choice?? It's paired with a RTX 2070 Super. Thanks

If your only primary use is games than the 5800X3D would be a better choice, but only if you can get it at the $330 price, which is hard atm. Content creation, streaming, ect go with the 5900X as a drop in upgrade.

This is only $10 more though and in stock.

Interesting. This is what I paid for mine (it was 332 actually) in July. Good to know that waiting was the wrong call Smilie
But then, that turned out to be the case for the GPUs too.

FWIW. I do primarily gaming on a 1440p ultrawide, teamed with a 6900XT and 32gb (2X16) of only 3200mhz ram. I get 500-600fps in Rocket League (max settings), and 300-700fps in Fortnite (depending on where you're looking). 120-150 fps on Warzone 2.0 and 120 fps on FH5 (I capped it but even uncapped it's barely more than that). Cyberpunk played well (no noticeable stutters) when I tried it but I don't remember the fps. I'd be surprised it if were much more than 60 though. Oh yea, I also play MSFS with is. Runs amazingly well on very high settings on the 1440p monitor but the reason I went with the 5900X is for VR, and It will get 35-40 fps in VR on my HP Reverb G2 ( no idea what settings I use as I'm constantly fidgeting with them but it looks pretty good)

I have everything on Max settings aside from ray tracing.

I get about 22000 in cinebench R23 (multi core) and like 1620 in single core. Passmark of 42000 (top 99%) using PBO and a mild curve optimization.

I have a 240mm radiator and my temps idle at 47C max at 80C, room ambient temp of ~24C, you could probably do better with a bigger radiator but there's no reason for me to bother as I don't ever thermal throttle.
