    I dont understand the difference between the 5800 65W and the 5700X. Looks like the same chip with same specs? Is 5800 OEM only and that’s the only difference?

    Ah, the CPU market cooling somewhat plus high end competition from Intel means AMD are devoting a bit of 7nm fab space to the lower end.

    I’d wait for Zen 4 though – should only be a few months away.
