Coming to performance and value, several OEMs including Alienware have already listed the new chips in their brand new AMD desktops. Alienware's configuration website for the Aurora Ryzen Edition gaming desktops gives us a good idea of how much value these chips are going to offer. The Ryzen 7 5800 is at least $150 US cheaper than the Ryzen 7 5800X configuration while the Ryzen 9 5900 is a whole $300 US cheaper than the Ryzen 9 5900X configuration. This is pretty good value for desktop CPUs that will offer almost 95% of the performance at far better efficiency.

It also looks like the Ryzen 5000 OEM parts from AMD feature a much better bin. A user who got his Ryzen 7 5800 OEM from Alienware confirmed on Reddit that his chip turned out to be a golden sample when tested within the Clock Tuner For Ryzen (CTR) utility. His chip can hit 4.4 GHz all-core OC at just 1.125V. While these chips are not coming to retail, the Ryzen 5000 OEM Desktop lineup is definitely going to sell like hot cakes in the OEM segment.
