Like the title says, I just upgraded my trusty Ryzen 5 3600x to a Ryzen 7 5800x.

I needed to update the BIOS on my Asrock x470 Master SLI/ac. It just would not boot at all with the chip in there with the older BIOS. I thought I'd already done this, but it turns out I'd only updated to the 3000 series support, not the 5000 series.
So if your upgrade seems DOA, make sure to flash.


That said, here's a little demonstration of the sheer power:

The 5800x, 2700x and 3600x are all mine and are all on this same board.

I've got a 2700x and a gigabyte x470 - glad to see you got it working. (Thinking about the 5800x, too)

Notice any difference in games?

I'm not a huge gamer - I play a game called Dyson Sphere Program, and it did benefit from the change, for sure. Overall smoother.

Going from an R7 1700 to an R9 3900X was very, very noticeable for me.

I'm mostly curious what caused you do go from a 2700X to a 3600X, single core performance?

The hop from the 2700X to the 3600X was more predicated on memory compatibility and overclocking fun. My 2700X was kinda picky about its ram.
