AMD Ryzen 5 5600X CPU $399, (Expired: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X $608.99, AMD Ryzen 9 5900X $839) Delivered @ Amazon AU

700

Best current bang for buck CPU out there at an all time low price at Amazon.

If you're in the market for one of these and not willing to sign up for afterpay etc. this is a great deal, about $15 less than the previous best Amazon price. The only reason to be cautious are the rumoured 'XT' models that should appear sometime this year but they may only be for the higher end models and if history is any guide they'll cost 25% more for an extra 10% performance.

Higher end models are also at or close to all time lows:

https://www.amazon.com.au/AMD-Ryzen-7-5800X/dp/B0815XFSGK?sm... (Out of Stock Price increased to $619)

https://www.amazon.com.au/AMD-Ryzen-9-5900X/dp/B08164VTWH?sm... (Price decreased to $799.00)

There are often some good CPU + motherboard bundles around that also offer good value if you find a combination you're interested in but this is a great stand alone price.with free delivery for everyone.

    This was $360 in the recent Shopping Express discount (+$10 shipping to Sydney)
    Not sure if that’s still going.

    If you're looking for a CPU for a gaming rig then look no further. In 95% of situations this is going to be right up there with CPUs that are twice the price.

    Got mine for $321.75 with the Klarna deal from PCCG. Seems very solid so far

    •  

      Obviously it was the Klarna deal, but I feel this should be the OzB benchmark price on this CPU

      •  

        I think its unfair to benchmark against klarna deal. $360-400 seems good as normal price is $420 and cpu prices in general are very stable.

        •  

          Naaa. See below. OzB expects $330-350 for this and so do I.

  • +16 votes

    There is really nothing special about these prices.
    OZB Benchmark price is should be around $330-$350 for 5600x.

    If it's for gaming why not just get an intel i5 10400F or 11400f as it will not bottleneck any games and it's cheaper…

    •  

      Do you mean that amd cpus above all have some sort of bottleneck when it comes for gaming?

      •  

        No, the AMD CPUs will not bottleneck any games but they are just more expensive with no real benefit for gaming.

    • +2 votes

      "will not bottleneck any game" is a very broad term, even without any number to proof it.

      and no, 5600x is better than both of those, hence better frame/less bottleneck on cpu intensive game. Which most of the MMORPG(for example WoW) or BettleRoyal (for example PUBG or Warzone or Apex) games are.

      • +1 vote

        It's a bit obvious but just in case you've missed my point. For most users, the GPU will be the bottleneck point in gaming not the CPU.

        "Without any number proof of it", well, you are wrong. there are plenty of youtube videos testing it, actually check the link below

        $200 CPU vs $600 and the gaming performance is very similar even with an RTX3080… get a i5-11400f ( $250 ) and you can barely tell.

          using your own source, [email protected], 1%low: 5800x = 119fps, 10400f = 103fps, same on flight similuator, hitman, GTAv, fortnite, and so on.

          so basically except red-dead, which for some reason was favor intel CPUs (proofed by multiple source), you see a big percent difference between average FPS and 1% low FPS.

          Keep in mind the source you provide test every game using high graphic setting,
          Realistically if you playing competitive, you will set your game to mid-low graphics, with less stress on GPU, the CPU performance affect FPS much more.

          This video also somewhat baked its data too: when you buy a $200 10400f, Consider you need to invest much more on mobo and RAM. I won't expect you pair it with an Z490, Z590, or B560 for memory overclocking, so user who's using 10400f won't run DDR4 3600 in most cases, they will likely be locked to 2666, by then you will see another big performance hit in those multiplayer games.

          • +1 vote

            @OMGJL: $200 vs $600 and the 10400f is not the latest GEN… 11400F
            Motherboard … B560M less than $200 Gibabyte Aurous PRO best performer for this CPU … not locked at DDR2666.

            $400 for Motherboard and CPU is still less than $600 just for the CPU… and don't forget is AMD that requires expensive RAM to perform well..

            •  

              @UrbionPT: I watched an interesting Hardware unboxed video today about value and it brought up a point about big performance hits in non gpu bound games and most productivity benchmarks when using intel 11th gen with b560m (at least most) motherboards. Definitely challenges the value I thought intel had with 4/6c or budget builds.

              I have no idea if the aurous pro has the same issue, just thought it interesting.

          also on top of it, in head-to-head extreme tweak scenario, 5600x vs 11400f,
          on 5600x,

          play with PBO to gain additional 200Mhz boost easily (effectively 4850Mhz all core), you can run 3800Mhz memory (if you don't care about windows spitting WHEA-19 error you likely could run 4000~4266 memory too)

          on 11400f, you could OC the ram to 3600 or 3733 depends on your silicon lottery, you can't tweak ring, can't tweak clock speed, all core 4.2Ghz

          • +1 vote

            @OMGJL: That means nothing, you can have memory ram at 5000mhz and I only have 3000MHZ or running the CPU at 5GHZ instead of 3GHZ and I still have the same performance. Besides… you then need to take into consideration extra cooling.

            • -1 vote

              @UrbionPT: cooling: 5600x with a $30 gammax 400 can do PBO +200Mhz easily, your 11400f would require buying some additional cooler anyway.
              Frequencies: rocket lake have similar IPC to Zen3, so frequency matters, memory frequency also matters.
              motherboard cost: you could buy a Gigabyte B550m H or Asrock B550m Pro 4 to have enough power to run a 5600x which would be less than $100.
              Memory would Cost the same, but will OC differently.

              ultimately you will spend around $100 more on 5600x, and you will gain the extra performance too, in terms of cost-per-dollar 11400f wins, but in terms of how long it would last before getting out-dated, 5600x easily wins, as gaming performance is dependent on single-thread performance. CPUz single core score: 5600x 645(non-OC), 670(OC), 11400f(stuck on 550)

      I would go for a used 3600 personally. Imo, it's better to go with AMD as in the future, you could go all the way up to a 5950x as long as you have a half decent motherboard. The problem with this gen of Intel chips is that they need very good motherboards due to their excessive power consumption if you want to upgrade to an 10900/11900k.

      Also, Intel chips have ridiculous used prices for some reason whilst used AMD's are much more reasonable in price. I saw a bid on ebay that went for $350 that was a 3570k, 16gb of ram and a z77 motherboard. You could get that level of performance brand new these days.

    Need to beat the klarna deal. Got a 12 core 5900X for just above the RRP of a 5800X.

  •  

    5700G, 5750G or 5900X for the same price?

    •  

      5800X is better than 5700G largely due to cache size differences, if similar in price 5800X is a better CPU for gaming and productivity.

    waiting for <750 price for the 5900x

    •  

      What do you plan to use it for?

      I'm trying to justify getting a 5800X or 5900X just so I can game and have a lot of stuff going on in the background so heavy multitasking and overall pushing my rig to its limit.

      My end goal is flexibility to play most games at 1080p max settings but also play at 4k max settings with lots of stuff going on in the background.

      I feel like I could get away with a 5600X but a 5800X could be helpful in some situations where the CPU is getting hammered but not sure by how much the extra will help.

      There will be no editing just maybe some streaming and capturing that's it.

      Maybe streaming to discord or twitch etc.

      •  

        the max cores ive ever had was 8c (fx 8230 or something like that, 2nd iteration of bulldozer). i just want 12 cores. (also why im skipping the 5800x)

        plan to video edit eventually when i find the right software. but for now its just light gaming + mining on my personal pc

        edit: mining is also reason i want to splurge on the cpu lol

        edit 2: also want to as close as possible to 5ghz

        edit 3: want to install loop, so need to buy cpu for that

    What cheaper board are people pairing with these? I always hear x570 b550 are much cheaper than Z590 but everytime I see a recommended board it's close to the price of Z590. No overclock, no wifi, audio can be rubbish as I use external sound device.

        The 5800x is still a beast, I have one and am impressed. I was waiting for a 5900x but price was just too high. Don't pay over $610 for a 5800x though and got mine for around $560 a few mnth ago.

      •  

        I am a video editor for one and a streamer so no less than an 8 core. If you don't do anything of that then a 6 core is fine. anything over this is only if you do something intensive. Gaming is not intensive on a cpu so any cpu will do.

        For me I can't have anything under a 8 core. thats the bare minimum. I have had 8 cores since 2009 back then it was dual quad core cpus on a board to get a 8 core machine.

    Man, shouldn't the 5600x be like $299.99, the 5800x $399.99 and 5900x $599.99? Also, shouldn't the 3080 RTX $699.99? Has inflation gone up 100% in 10 years? My wages haven't doubled.

      I agree the price was inflated and is unhealthy and ridiculous. But you shouldn't use US$ MSRP to compare against AU$ MSRP, especially we have different GST laws.

    •  

      Yes the RRP before the pandemic yes but because of the pandemic which people have seem to forgotten is STILL going! Manufacturing has not kept up with the demand which means low stock and prices going up

    Waiting for the updated V-Cache 5900X/5950X later this year myself.

    What would be a good pairing for a RTX 3080? I'm currently running with a R5 3600 (a little mismatched as I'd had it paired with a RX5700XT previously).

    Playing mostly FPS on a 2k 144hz monitor.

    •  

      if u spend that much on graphics card, it seems like a no brainer to just continue going all out and get the 5900x

  •  

    Anyone know if its worth getting the upgrade from a ryzen 3600?

    •  

      It depends, do you just check the news and watch YouTube videos and play games but you don’t have a graphic card better than at least a rtx3060? Then it’s not worth it. Do you do video editing or anything else that require a lot of CPU ? Then, yes it’s worth it

  •  

    What would be a good mobo for the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X. For gaming and Adobe After effects work. Hopefully within 100. Thanks!

  •  

    unless you already have a gpu, don't bother buying. Price will only go down as time goes. The hype is slowing down.
    A year old cpu at this point should be on sale anyways.

    5600X CPU $399

    For anyone gaming on a budget, consider the 11400f + decent b560 (e.g steel legend for 139 @ umart) + $30 gammaxx 300 can be had for under $400. Spend whatever you'd spend on a mobo for the 5600x to stretch for a better GPU. The 5600x is on average 11% faster at 1080p when using a 3090. For lower tier GPUs or higher resolutions, the gap would be smaller than 11%.

    From techspot: As it stands right now, the Core i5-11400F on a B560 motherboard should be the go-to option for budget builders.

    •  

      What do you think about that vs a 3600 and an ASRock b550m pro4 for 400$ all up

      • +1 vote

        Pretty solid but the 11400f is faster on avg in games for the same price (albeit at 1080p when testing with a 3090): https://static.techspot.com/articles-info/2232/bench/Average....

        I'm not familiar with that particular mobo but if the VRMs are up to the task you could potentially upgrade to a 5900x/5950x down the line if you ever needed the cores for some multithreaded workloads. As far as games go, by the time the additional threads of a 5900x/5950x are meaningful, there'll be something better from amd/intel to upgrade to anyway.

        So unless the potential of slotting in a high core count Amd cpu later is important, go with the 11400f which is better for games today.

    Should i upgrade to 5900x? currently on a 2700x which performs happily until i need to render 4k preview in video editing.
