Question If I go from a 2700X to a 5800X will I notice a performance increase ?

I have a slow 2700X. so if I buy and install a 5800X will I get a huge increase in performance or just a slight "barely can tell" increase ?

Thanks always,
Computer User.
 
I would say yes, however if you don’t have one, an ssd drive would been a noticeable upgrade for day to day operations. You might consider the 5700x. The 5800x can run a bit warm whereas the 5700x starts with a 65 watt tdp and will likely have lower temps.

Can you, or anyone else, explain the performance difference between say a 5800X/5700X and the Ryzen 9 CPU's? Are they much faster compared to the Ryzen 7 5000 series, or what?

Thanks

"Faster" is relative to what you do, for a simple task like internet browsing, not even a super computer would do any better.
For heavier use there are at least 3 factors to consider depending on software.
  1. Single core performance where SW is working on mostly one or couple of cores disregarding others.
  2. IPC (Instructions Per Cycle/Clock) This tells you how many things a CPU can do in one cycle.
  3. Number of cores, pretty obvious. more cores, more simultaneous tasks it can perform.
As for 5700x vs. 5800x difference is some 100MHz maximum boost which is very little in normal use. but 5700x s easier to cool.
All 5000 series Ryzen have very similar single core performance and IPC and main advantage is number of core with R9
 
As the poster above said, single core on 5000 series (excluding the G cpus and the 5500) are going to be fairly similar. Those other cpus were built on a platform of an apu, where they had graphics built in. The 5500 is a cpu where they were basically disabled.

Now as you start looking at it, your ryzen 5 cpus will typically be 6 cores, 12 threads, ryzen 7 is 8 core 16 threads, 5900x is 12/24, and the 5950x I think is 16/32. Again single core not a lot of difference between say a 5600x and a 5950x. However the more you do at once the more cores you want. So if you are encoding or streaming a lot, you may want to look at the ryzen 9 cpus.

A couple of things. The 5700x and 5800x are pretty close in performance. The 5700x runs more like a slightly undervolted 5800x. In other words it’s got 90% of the 5800x performance but it’s getting less voltage and will run cooler. The 5800x is going to ramp up and run hotter.

One other exception is the 5800x3d which is basically a downclocked 5800x, but they put a lot of extra cache on it which helps with some games. It’s considered to be a great gaming cpu, but is pricey.
