I will purchase a 5700x they run colder.

Where did you find the memory bandwidth speed? This is very interesting!

5700x is the winner, because it has the same 5800x's efficiency, but that one, 5700x, is cheaper e less hotter.

5700x, you get about 95% of the 5800x with near 40% less power consumption and less heat, so the cooler is quieter too. You are not going to notice the difference in 5% of efficiency but you will in your system trying to cool down the CPU that runs 10-15 degrees hotter.

Definitely 5700x makes more sense to get.
