AMD Ryzen 7 5700X Desktop Processor Review

Today we are reviewing a new processor from AMD, offering up to eight cores and 16 threads and 36 MB of cache. the AMD Ryzen 7 5700X desktop processor. Designed using new “Zen 3" architecture offering better performance while still being efficient with 65W TDP, the AMD Ryzen 7 5700X mainstream processor is the ideal solution for new gaming and multitasking PC builds.

AMD Ryzen 7 5700X is a 8 Cores, 16 Threads unlocked processor with support for precision boost has a base clock speed of 3.4GHz with Max Boost Clock of 4.6 GHz, which would enable fast creative workloads and gaming.

Now let's see what more the new AMD Ryzen 7 5700X desktop processor have for us.


7nm "Zen 3" Architecture
"Zen 3" architecture is a ground-up redesign of the legendary "Zen" family. Equipped with end-to-end design enhancements, "Zen 3" embodies AMD’s relentless focus on single-core performance, energy efficiency, and reduced latencies

AMD Ryzen™ Technologies
With great processing power comes the bleeding-edge technologies to support. All Ryzen™ 5000 Series processors come with the full suite of Ryzen technologies designed to elevate your PC’s processing power including Precision Boost 2 and Precision Boost Overdrive

Build with Confidence
AMD Ryzen™ processors are easy to configure and easy to customize.
Not only are these processors drop-in ready on AMD 500, 400 and select 3008 series motherboards with a simple BIOS update, you can easily tweak and tune your processor with Ryzen™ Master and AMD StoreMI.




For testing the performance for the new AMD Ryzen 7 5700X desktop processor, we ran few CPU benchmarks and compared it with the Intel's 8-Core 16-Thread Coffee lake i9-9900K CPU. All the CPUs under test were kept to their stock factory settings/ clock speeds as provided by their manufacturers. No overclocking is applied, as overclocking capability of CPU varies from chip to chip, cooling capabilities and many more factors. We also used same liquid cooling solution for all CPUs and ran all tests on same approx. ambient temperature.

AMD’s Ryzen Master

AMD’s Ryzen Master utility is a powerful overclocking and monitoring tool for tuning your AMD Ryzen system within the Windows operating system environment.

List of New features for the AMD's Ryzen Master utility

  • Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO): Enable and disable the feature, with and without Automatic Overclocking.
  • Package Power Tracking (“PPT”): The PPT% indicates the distance to configured maximum power (in watts) that can be delivered to the processor socket. “Limit” notes total motherboard-provided capacity if PBO is enabled.
  • Thermal Design Current (“TDC”): The TDC% indicates the distance to the configured current limit (in amps) that can be delivered by the motherboard voltage regulators when thermally constrained. “Limit” notes total motherboard-provided capacity if PBO is enabled.
  • Electrical Design Current (“EDC”):The EDC% indicates the distance to the configured current limit (in amps) that can be delivered by the motherboard voltage regulators in a peak/transient condition. “Limit” notes total motherboard-provided capacity if PBO is enabled.
  • Fastest Core Detection: The grey stars represent the fastest core(s) within each CCX, while the gold star indicates the fastest core in the chiplet. The circles represent the second fastest cores within the CCXes. This can be extremely useful for breaking single-core clock speed records.
  • Per-CCX Overclocking:It is now possible to independently control the clock speed of each CCX.
  • Topology View: Cores in the UI are now labelled and grouped according to their physical location in the SoC.
  • Active Power Management Insight: AMD Ryzen™ Processors make extensive use of cc6 sleep, rather than frequency adjustments, for active power management. Windows® is unable to probe and report the state of the core in a cc6 state, and instead reports the last active clock before sleep; this may give the illusion that a core is “stuck” at a high idle clock. With this update, users can now see for themselves when a core has entered cc6 sleep and can observe the complete range of idle/sleep frequencies available to the processor. This is the first and only tool in the market with this capability.
  • DRAM Profiles: Users now have access to every memory timing parameter, including drive strengths, on-die termination, and Rtt values. Users can import and export full memory profiles to share with the community.

Using AMD's Ryzen Master utility we were easily able to overclock AMD Ryzen 7 5700X CPU upto stable 4.50GHz all cores and maximum core clock of 4973.84 MHz.

AMD Ryzen 7 5700X is a High-end desktop processor with 8 cores 16 threads, max boost clock of 4.6ghz, base clock of 3.4ghz and 36mb game cache, offers remarkable performance and efficiency using "Zen 3" Core Architecture.

AMD Ryzen 7 5700X processor with backward compatibility on all AM4 chipet motherboards makes it great option for upgraders, for all owners of older Ryzen series desktop Processors now they can get a significant performance boost without whole PC upgrade.

Finally at a price tag of approx. Rs.26999, the new AMD Ryzen 7 5700X desktop processor is one of the best price to performance value CPU with 8 cores 16 threads for all type of PC build. It offers better value than the Ryzen 7 5800X, with surprisingly greater overclocking head-room make it worthy of our PC TeK Reviews CHOICE Award.
