Finally, we have the Ryzen 9 5950X which debuted for $799 and has now tumbled to just $499, $50-100 over the Intel Core i9-12900KF. It’s worth noting that both are 16-core SKUs with the latter featuring just 8 performance cores with the remaining being low-power efficiency cores. The 5950X is powered solely by the “big” Zen 3 cores, resulting in higher overall multi-threaded performance.l
