A few days ago AMD introduced the Ryzen AM4 CPU along with the Ryzen 7 5700X which will be priced at $299. At this price, we are surprised to see the performance on the benchmarks which have been leaked. AMD has waited long enough to introduce a more affordable option in the Ryzen 5000 family featuring the Zen 3 core architecture.
It appears that after Intel’s Alder Lake 12th Gen line up was released, AMD felt slightly pressured to release new SKUs, one of which is the brand new Ryzen 7 5800X3D. It is quite obvious how this SKU was placed exactly at par with Intel’s Alder Lake as far as gaming performance is concerned.
AMD’s Ryzen 7 5700X is based on 8 cores and 16 threads featuring a 7nm Zen 3 core architecture. With a base of 3.4 GHz and a boost clock of 4.6 GHz, the chip will further have overclocking support too. It has a cache of 36 MB. And since the chip comes with a 65W package it means that Wraith coolers will be compatible with it on the AM4 socket. The CPU is also made to be compatible with the 300-series and 400-series motherboards.
Thanks to Benchleaks, some new benchmarks have been leaked with core scores that are quite impressive. The single core score stands at 1645 points and the multi-core score is a whopping 10196 points. The testing was carried out on the ASRock X570 Taichi motherboard which has a 32 GB of DDR4-3200 memory.
It is quite surprising to know that the AMD Ryzen 7 5700X, can match performance of the more expensive 5800X, despite being $150 US cheaper. Thanks to compatibility with the current AM4 platform, the new CPU can serve as a major upgrade without having to wait for the AM5 platform.
