AMD Ryzen 7 5800x (8 Cores, 16 Threads) $664.47 + Delivery (Free with Prime) @ Amazon US via AU

1230

Cheapest price ever, I think cashback is also available, only downside is slightly long delivery time of 2 weeks, with 5600x now around $540, this is getting better in value

Note: sometimes Amazon just glitch out and price jump to $1000+, just wait half an hour and price will drop back to per title

Price increased from $664.29 to $664.47 on 11:11 16 Dec

    Screw it.. I can’t be bothered waiting for a 5900X anymore, at that price it leaves more money to try and get an RTX 3080.
    I don’t think I’ll notice anything lacking by choosing a 5800X over a 5900X even with VR or steam link (which would use GPU).

          Running multiple VM's at the same time, which is my reason.

          professional work like rendering would need it

          if you need it for work just look up how much performance you gain with more cores.

    Got it the 5600X for around $480 a few weeks ago, seller was Australia AU though. Be careful buying things from Amazon US, if you have issues with it, Amazon AU won’t help you with a replacement and requires you to send it back to Amazon US for a refund only.

    • +6 votes

      I was pleased at how easy it was to return via parcel point and didn’t cost me a cent!

      •  

        I’d prefer a straight replacement, especially if you bought it at a discounted price. Getting a refund would suck if the price for the 5800x increases and you have to buy it again but at a higher price.

          Unfortunately if it’s a market place item they won’t do anything other than refund… just look at the air pods pro from last week

          •  

            @mitchins: Yes if the seller is not Amazon AU, replacement is not an option. Can only return for a refund

      •  

        I concur. It may take a while for you to get the refund though. But it comes, eventually

        Hi how did that work? I had to return to Amazon UK recently and needed to pay shipping to UK. I think they said something a bout reimbursement up to $30 for shipping some how but your way sounds much nicer.

        •  

          It was to the US but should be the same… also I am a prime member not sure if it’s a difference but just choose to drop off at parcel point .

        •  

          Annoyingly, parcel point returns are only available for returning items sold by Amazon US, not Amazon UK. Wish I’d been aware of this before having to return an item ordered sold by Amazon UK.

    • +12 votes

      Nope so if you buy something from Amazon us and it's faulty, you return it back to Amazon us, then you can go and buy the exact same item from Amazon au, then message their live chat and they'll credit the difference back to your account

        Pro tip… thanks!

        True but YMMV, depends on the rep you get

        •  

          well that's the recommended way to do it, you can also do this method though slightly dodgy, the outcome is similar enough

          buy one from Amazon AU, then return your faulty one that you got from Amazon US to Amazon AU order

          •  

            @ln28909: I guess you could, provided the Amazon AU store has it in stock lol

            At the moment, a bit of a wait from both places.

    •  

      Yeah, i was lucky, i got mine at F1Tech at chatswood for $469, they're a tiny shop so their stock doesnt show on websites, but they had multiple 5600x's and by my count over 10 RTX 3000 series cards. Would recommend someone check them out. Everywhere was out of stock except them, but i feel like no one knows about them. If people check lemme know ahaha

      I guess it depends on exactly what you are editing with what applications… Hardware unboxed and gamers nexus do very good comparisons for productivity work… The consensus was 5600x for gaming and 5900x for productivity… I think you can also get away with a 3900X as mentioned above

    •  

      5900 or 5950X if you spend lots of time encoding.

    •  

      Go for a 3900x. The xt version is $699 on Amazon UK

      •  

        Thanks everyone, why the 3900X if it's superceeded by the 5900X?

        • +2 votes

          5900X is hard to find in stock, and when it is in stock the prices can be a bit mad. If you can find a reasonable 5900x go for it. But between a 5800x and 3900x - which are a similar price - if you're doing video editing the 3900x has lots more multicore grunt than the 5800x.

                @ln28909: its in NR200 not worried about the thermals even if i do a light OC, with stock cooler it's been hitting 4.7 in benchmarks using PBO… thermals do hit around 85c though but yeh… pretty impressive these new Zen3's considering the lame cooler that is on it.. if only i could cable manage the friking thing it'd be a perfect itx case.. lol

                  @scud70: Yeah I haven't tried building itx before cause my cable management already looks like crap on my full tower case, just imagine what it'll look like in itx scares me

      That's just FUD. Refer to Robert Hallock from AMD's response regarding Zen 3 thermals.

      https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/jsy8bw/robert_hallocks...

      • +2 votes

        I downvoted the original comment because of this, it has been stated multiple times by AMD, Zen 3 itself is designed to run that way. The better cooling you give it, the more it will push itself. You put a bad cooler, under full peak maximum load it will hit 90, you put a great cooler, it will also hit 90. But with higher voltages and higher overall core speeds. You can change it around the BIOS to target less temps if that's what you want I believe, but don't be concerned about the chip itself reaching higher temps.

        • +3 votes

          This ^. I originally had doubts about my 5800x purchase too until I read more into the situation. While it is true that 5800x has more concentrated heat and more power available per core, its nowhere as disastrous. With the latest AGESA 1.1.8.0, AMD introduced Curve Optimizer and I was able to gain another 400-500 points on R23/MT - final score 15753. All I did was test some negative number on the VF curve and I'm not even pushing it yet. But guess what, it still hit 90C and stayed there along with performance increase. That didn't stop until I introduce limits to the temperature and EDC/power values. Now I effectively configured into an undervolted state and still hit stock performance. During gaming it is hitting 4850MHz (probably mix of single threads) and temperature hovering around mid 60s-70s (depending on game) without temp/EDC limits.

        •  

          So does that mean there's a bare minimum cooler you need to get max turbo speeds ( or max posted speeds )

          •  

            @Whomastadon: Yes, and I believe that applies to the whole lineup. And every chip is different too, some chips will be able to post with higher speeds, at lower voltages. It's just silicone lottery. You buy what's in YOUR budget always, you get the cooler you can afford and the CPU you can afford, and just be happy with whatever you get out of them, which is most likely a significant upgrade over whatever you're upgrading from (considering you upgrade every 2 to 5 years depending on each person).

        •  

          This is a great feature to see really, it's great to see chips automatically taking advantage of the headroom that exists in multiple aspects, and within the silicon health profile that it's aware of. It's also good that AMD is learning that they need to communicate more about what behaviour is to be expected after the whole "OMG my CPU is hitting 1.5V" of Zen 2, and has released expected thermal and voltage ranges and communicated more about how these will challenge conventional wisdom. Though, there will always be some resistance like in that video.

          Value wise, I would say wait till boxing day and buy a 3700x or 3800x for ~$420 on eBay, these 5000 series cpu are not really value oriented

            @ln28909: its just, i am looking to build a machine and not regret at the same time.
            idm spending a bit more if its worth.

            never looked into 3700/800, comparable to the 5600x?

            • +1 vote

              @jdmdavid: The gain you're getting with 5600x is not significant, say you'll go from 150fps to 170fps, sure there is a gain but not that noticeable, and I firmly believe that more cores will benefit you in the long run

              So unless you play competitive fps at 1080p, I would recommend 3700x/3800x for value

            @ln28909: got a 3700x last ebay sale for $420 from , crazy how this is still the best price so far

  •  

    I was just researching what I should get for my next build few hours ago, and came across this.
    I'm aware it's not the same processor, but I would lean towards close temps on both since they both on 7nm arch. Also 5800x runs on slightly higher wattage.

    "For instance, in our testing, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X reached a maximum temperature of 86°C – and that's with a 360mm AIO cooler attached. Don't worry, that's just how Ryzen is designed. AMD has told us that the new processors may peak around 98°C, and that it's expected. Your processor isn't going to burst into flames."

          Not true, shortage is starting for 5800x too, if you want to assess stock situation , just check shopping express, if they sell at or below msrp then plenty, if they go above, then there's a shortage coming, and they just up the price pretty handsomely for this

          • +3 votes

            @ln28909: Only because the rest are being snapped up and forcing people to go to 5800 if they want an amd 5000.

              •  

                @ln28909: On the point of shortage, any point over the last 6 weeks bar the very last week, there was 5800x in stock everywhere. The point about price jacking is simply because of the supplier cost of these 5000 chips means very very little margin.

              • +1 vote

                @ln28909: The 5800X RRP IS bad value compared to the 5900X.
                50% more core for like 20% more cost or something?
                As I said above, can’t be stuffed waiting around for a part that’s never available

    •  

      I also got a 5600x for msrp on release. They were easily available for a while after release along with the 5800x. It was only the 5900x and 5950x which were hard to obtain. Interesting that they are all hard to get now.

      I think you need a history lesson and look at what an 8 core Intel CPU would have cost you in 2016-2017 prior to AMD introducing Ryzen into the marketplace.

    • +1 vote

      The way AMD has made their product stack, they're stilll including the 3xxx series cards as your mid range. The 5xxx series is your top end.

      5600x vs 3700x/3800x for similar pricing is a very real thing now where one is better for gaming and the other is slightly for productivity. 3600 still exists and is probably still the best bang for buck if you get it at the right price.

      Depends on your usage and whether you need the extra 2 cores…and how much you love your money =)

      Jokes aside, you're looking at another ~6 weeks before they (especially MSRP 6800 XT) become more widely available (hopefully sooner than that).
