Question 5900x vs 10700k

The 5900X is not better at gaming than a 5600X or 5800X. 5900X 12 cores 24 threads is a workstation CPU. Don't waste your money on a 5900X.

The 5800X is a better choice. 8 cores is more than enough for now and the near future.

If I had to choose between the 10700k and the 5800X I would take the 5800X depending on the price of each obviously.

I also vote for the 5800X if you are just gaming. Plus the 5900X/5950X are super hard to find right now. With alot etailers saying they won't have signicant stock until like spring/summer.

Warzone is a game that greatly benefits from the extra cores of the 5900x... so in most cases no, probably not worth it. But if your main game is warzone it would be imo.

Mate, there are benchmarks available online. It doesn't looks like it makes any kind of difference whatsoever if you use 5900X or 5800X.
I'm with the rest, for games 5800x looks like got to CPU.

Definitely the 5800X and save that extra money towards a GPU upgrade down the line when they are available. When it comes to 4k gaming it is more about your GPU and less about the CPU. Those extra cores will be bored and probably get depressed ;)

As has been mentioned the 5900X and 5950X are really workstation PCs. I do a lot of content creation / video editing for my business and the extra horse power of the 5900X really comes in handy. These Ryzen 5000 processors are game changers and will be the apex processors till Ryzen 6000 at the end of next year. Even then the Ryzen 5000 will be total powerhouses. From the benchmarks I've seen the Ryzen 5600X can handle the RTX 3080 without a bottleneck, so for gaming only even the 5600X is going to be an amazing processor and has better IPC / single core performance than the 10700K or 10900K. As has been mentioned, if games become capable of using even more cores than they do now then for future proofing the 8 core 16 thread 5800X is probably the way to go.

It also depends on price.Here the 5600x is expensive.Like 2.8k more than a 3600x but the 5900x is cheaper than a 10900k.I would also settle for a 5800x as it's more prob the best price to performance cpu here but it always depends on price.
