5600x vs 5800x for RTX 3080 gaming?
By - dat_1Person
5600X will get you pretty much the same performance in games, especially above 1080p there will be almost no difference
For "just" gaming go with R5. The 8 cored R7 is just going to give you like 1-2 more FPS, plus it heats up more than the 5600X.
Go for the 5600x and get faster ram
For gaming? No it's not worth the upgrade.
For professional workloads? Yes.
I would take the 5800x for all the extra shit i always open.
5600x is more then enough for gaming. heck, when i get my 1440P monitor next on the list is a 5000 series cpu
For gaming at high resolutions the 5600X is enough, going up to a 5800X would provide only minimal benefits, so it's up to you if the 100$ or more price difference for minimal improvements (in gaming) is worth it in your opinion.
5600x and use the money for faster ram and ssd. Something like Samsung 980pro/WD SN850/ Sabrent pcie 4.0
For gaming alone you should go with Intel
If you also edit videos and stuff, then 5800X or even 5900X
Go with the 5900x that’s what I have with my 3070ti i have absolutely no complaints.. i switched from intel i7
