AMD Ryzen 9 5900X Processor
- The AMD Ryzen 9 5900X is an absolute beast in terms of performance thanks to its 12C/24T and boost clock of 4.8 GHz
- It is an unlocked processor and can be overclocked for even better performance
- The 5900X is based on AMD’s latest and greatest Zen 3 architecture (TSMC 7nm FinFET) and has improved latency, IPC, and overall performance
- Extremely efficient with a mere default TDP of 105W despite being such a powerful processor
- Supports AMD-exclusive features such as AMD StoreMI Technology, AMD Ryzen™ VR-Ready Premium, and AMD Ryzen™ Master Utility
- Comes with a massive L3 cache of 64MB
The Ryzen 5000 series was announced a few months ago in October. AMD announced four processors of this series, and among these four, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X is one of the most powerful ones. The Ryzen 9 5900X is an absolute beast. Just like all the Ryzen 5000 series processors, the 5900X is also based on AMD’s latest and greatest Zen 3 architecture.
The Zen 3 architecture is built from scratch, and is significantly better than all the previous iterations of Zen. The previous iterations had impressive multi-core performance, but lacked the single-threaded performance. But, all of that has been sorted with the Zen 3. There have been massive improvements in the performance, efficiency, Instructions Per Clock (IPC), latency, etc.
Ryzen processors were already popular for their amazing multi-core performance, and the Zen 3 did not only improve that aspect but also brought significant improvements to the single-core performance. All of these improvements make the Ryzen 5000 processors extremely popular among gaming PC enthusiasts. The Ryzen 5900X is the second-best processor of the Ryzen 5000 series. This processor comes with 12 cores, and also has 24 threads thanks to SMT (Simultaneous Multi Threading). Talking about the frequency, or clock speeds, the 5900X has a base clock of 3.7 GHz and a boost clock of 4.8 GHz.
The combination of a high core/thread, along with a high frequency ensures that performance is something that you would not have to worry about with the Ryzen 9 5900X. The processor can do anything and everything that a CPU is supposed to and will do so smoothly. Streaming, rendering, editing, gaming, you name it! As said before, the Zen 3 architecture allowed the processors to be efficient, while also having a significant performance boost.
That is true for this processor too. Despite having such a high core count, and core frequency, the default TDP is rated at a mere 105 W. As for the CPU cache, the Ryzen 5900X has a 64MB of ultrafast L3 cache. The AMD Ryzen 9 5900X is undoubtedly an expensive processor.
However, you get what you pay for. 12 cores, 24 threads, high boost clock of 4.8 GHz, 7nm architecture while also having a TDP of 105W. What more do you want? If you are an enthusiast and want a processor that will absolutely excel in everything you throw at it, then the 5900X is something you should seriously consider.
