Do not deny it: you have put eyes on this CPU on more than one occasion. It is normal and safe that if, as it is now available, you launch as little as the savings allow. Not every day you get a 16% discount on a TOP CPU on the market, but rather the opposite, prices go up.
AMD cuts the price with its two main sales partners in Spain
It is not surprising, however, that AMD wants to put the finishing touches on Intel in the gaming market if you have this CPU as a weapon, out of reach of your rival. And we are talking about a processor that houses nothing less than 12 cores and 24 threads that are capable of running at a base frequency of 3.7 GHz and that achieve a Boost of 4.8 GHz (as long as the algorithm conditions so determine).
However, it has a total L2 cache of 6 MB, where to the delight of the wealthiest we will have an L3 cache of no less than 64 MB. Of course this is possible thanks to the 7nm of TSMC and the support by Lisa Su in the socket AM4.
It is nevertheless a processor that manages to support PCIe 4.0, which will allow us to extract all the performance to the new NVIDIA RTX and AMD RX graphics cards, both with support for this version of the bus.
AMD Ryzen 9 5900X, a performance per watt not achievable by Intel
Right now in terms of performance per watt it is the best mainstream CPU with a consumption of just 7.8 kj, thanks in part to its TDP of just 105 watts. As AMD is accustomed to us, we are facing an unlocked CPU for overclocking, where we can squeeze it up to the frequency that our cooling system and motherboard allow us, where in no case we must exceed the 90º C of rigor that AMD marks.
Its BMI is new generation and now supports DDR4-3200 without overclock, where from that speed it is our responsibility to stabilize the frequencies and BMI. Given the CPU, let’s focus on the price and the offer, since Amazon and PcComponentes have set the same historical minimum price: € 539.89, which is a discount of no less than the 16%. This offer will not last long, since they are limited units and for example PcComponentes is already running out of stock little by little, run for this 5900X!
