Power and Temperature

In a similar vein to our CPU clock frequency testing, we’ll also look at power and temperature running Cinebench R23 and also Gaming in Cyberpunk 2077.


AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Power Cinebench R23 Graph

In a Cinebench R23 10 Minute run, loading the CPUs as hard as possible the Ryzen 7 5800X utilizes more power, 144W, while the Ryzen 7 5800X uses less at 124W. Keep in mind the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is running a lower clock speed, plus a lower Voltage as well, this is very important as to why the power looks different between them.

The same pans out while gaming in Cyberpunk 2077, the Ryzen 7 5800X reaches 99W, while the 5800X3D is at 77W.

Because of the higher Voltage and clock speed on the Ryzen 7 5800X it reached a whopping almost 87c in Cinebench R23, definitely proving that it runs the hottest. The 5800X3D was actually a little cooler at 81c, though still kind of toasty generally speaking, but the lower CPU Voltage certainly helps it here.
