Cores12More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed3.8GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenameZen 3The code name given by the manufacturers
Release Date20 Oct 2020 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP105WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L1 Cache768KBThe bigger the L1 cache, the more data can be stored for lightning CPU access to priority processes (though a bigger cache means a higher latency
L2 Cache6144KBAfter L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access
L3 Cache64MBThe L3 cache is the largest CPU cache, but still provides very quick access to data
Lithography7nmThe smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use
CPU SocketSocket AM4The motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it
Unlocked MultiplieryesAn unlocked clock multiplier means you can adjust the multiplier for an overclocking speed boost

Ryzen 9 5900X 12-Core 3.7GHz compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 12-Core 3.7GHz has exceptional performance. Its 12 cores clocked at 3.8 GHz provide extremely swift processing speeds and allow many processes to be run simultaneously.

The CPU is under a year old, meaning it should be based on recent technologies and manufacturer support should almost certainly still be available.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 7 nanometers, the Ryzen 9 5900X 12-Core 3.7GHz is built for extreme speeds and efficiency, although with a Thermal Design Power of 105W it requires a large amount of power to run.
