AMD RYZEN 7 1800X CPU Review

<![CDATA[The Ryzen 7 1800X is a gaming CPU on the more expensive end of AMD CPUs. I found this one on Newegg for around $500 after a friend recommended it to me. I was excited to try out this motherboard as I had heard it was really fast and I was not disappointed.

So I have bought CPUs from AMD but I have not always had the greatest experience so I was a little nervous in that aspect. For those who don’t know a lot about AMD here’s a little info:
Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) is an American multinational semiconductor company based in Sunnyvale, California, that develops computer processors and related technologies for business and consumer markets. AMD’s main products include microprocessors, motherboard chipsets, embedded processors and graphics processors for servers, workstations and personal computers, and embedded systems applications.

Warning: I tested this CPU using my ASUS ROG Strix X370-F motherboard so my results might be different than if tested using a different gaming motherboard.

  • Clock Speed: 4.0 GHz
  • Cache: L1 (768 KB), L2 (4MB), L3 (16MB)
  • Socket Type: AM4
  • # of Processors: 8
  • Passmark: 15443

So I went into this excited to finally try this CPU and I was not disappointed. The graphics did not lag and the game loaded faster than I was expecting no matter what game I was playing. One problem that I encountered was that I could not OC past 3.9 GHz. That was the limit and no matter what I did I was never able to get over that hurdle. I was reading up on the CPU and found that others had this problem as well.  Even with this OC problem, I still love this CPU. The price and the incredible speed seal the deal if you can get over a few problems such as the OC. For a fairly inexpensive, higher-end gaming CPU, I would definitely recommend the Ryzen 7 1800x to anyone looking to up their gaming experience.
