Ryzen 7 5800x is no joke!

My son wanted a 5800x to replace his 2600 for Christmas. Of course, he didn't get one then but was willing to wait "however long it takes" and his waiting finally paid off. Found 1 on eBay for $500 so I jumped on it. I'm impressed with the performance jump. It's akin to a gpu upgrade (30-40fps) in some games. It runs about 10* hotter (idles @ high 30's low 40's) compared to the old 2600. Default voltage is 1.4+! It's got me wanting 1 now but I'm going to wait til they come down to the msrp of $450 before seriously considering 1.

nice, I love the new ryzens. I'm making a mini PC with one to put in the living room to use later on when I can get one on sale.

Zen3 is a beast. I got a 5950x/3090 build now and it can actually play Cyberpunk without it consistently being a powerpoint game.

Games I'm hyped for
The Last of Us Part 2, RE2 Remake, The Last Night

Current Platforms:
PC (Zen9 5950x, 64GB, RTX 3090), PS5
