Breathes gaming life into AM4 like not other AM4 CPU ever has. Lowish power consumption, so it works even with really old, crappy, 300 series boards.
A bit weaker than the regular 5800X in productivity tasks because clock speed is deliberately kept lower by AMD. The option for overclocking should not have been locked out.
If you're a gamer who still has an older 1000, 2000 or 3000 series Socket AM4 Ryzen CPU, and a decent GPU, then pick one of these up.

What's more to say, if you're here looking for reviews at this point, chances are you're on the fence of upgrading from AM4 to AM5. Honestly, DON'T! Get the 5800X3d if you're looking for the little bit more "umph" in gaming, without a full blown upgrade to the first gen AM5, this is the perfect stop gap. Amazing gaming performance for the price, especially in simulation based gaming work loads ( flights sims, Tarkov, etc )
Low single core frequency clock compared to the current gen offerings, showing it's age in frequency sensitive gaming loads
Although this would be the Halo gaming processor of the AM4 platform, it's the perfect upgrade for those considering the first gen AM5 upgrade. Save your cash friends, this is the upgrade you want while waiting for the second gen AM5 processors & maturing DDR5 modules

Great value for performance. Outperforms more expensive Intel and Zen4 solutions.
The final CPU released for the AM4 platform. No upgrades from here.
I waited until Zen4 launch to grab one of these, the value proposition for the Ryzen 7600X and especially AM5 motherboards was almost non-existent so it sent me back to the AM4. With b550 boards and now GPU's entering their lowest prices both retail and used this is easily the best bang for your buck option for a CPU for gaming and also remaining competitive in productivity workloads. If you can wait for the Zen4 X3D chips then maybe wait, but until then you can't get much better than the 5800X3D. I purchased this CPU on Sale; look around for for the best price.

This CPU comfortably challenges any GPU and pushed my frame stability into wonderland. I don't play for high FPS, I play for solid 144Hz performance, and this CPU paired very, very well with both an RTX 3080 Ti, an RTX 3080 and *very* well with an RX 6600. This CPU will make your GPU sing.
The IPC per core is not as snappy as modern Intel. I replaced an i5-11600K with this, and while it pushes more frames, the desktop snappiness is just not quite as nice as I was experiencing with the Intel.
Expensive, but a very good way to get into Ryzen late in the Zen3 Generation. Pairs well with DDR4 and if you're in the market to build something that will game for YEARS, this is the CPU I recommend if you've got the scratch.
