AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Processor Crushes Intel’s Fastest Gaming Chip, Core i9-12900K, In Gaming Benchmarks

The first proper gaming benchmarks of AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D have been revealed by Xanxo Gaming in their unofficial CPU review. Based on gaming performance benchmarks, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D delivers absolutely stellar results against the flagship Intel Core i9-12900K Alder Lake processor.

AMD Beats Intel in Gaming with V-Cache 3D Powered Ryzen 7 5800X3D Processor, Up to 29% Performance Over Alder Lake Core i9-12900K

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D will be the first and only chip with 3D V-Cache based on the 7nm Zen 3 core architecture. The processor is going to offer 8 cores, 16 threads and 100MB of combined cache thanks to its additional 64MB 3D stacked SRAM design. Clock speeds will be maintained at 3.4GHz base and 4.5GHz boost with a TDP of 105W.

As for the price, the processor will carry the same MSRP as the 5800X at US$449, which means the non-3D chip will get a discounted price of $399 or even less. The price makes the 5800X3D more expensive than the Intel Core i7-12700K which offers more cores/threads but less cache. It will be interesting to see performance benchmarks between the two chips.

The test platform included the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D on an X570 benchmark with DDR4-3200 CL14 memory and compared to an Intel Core i9-12900K running on a Z690 platform with DDR4-3200 CL14 memory also. Now, while Alder Lake can certainly support much faster memory compared to the AMD platform, especially DDR5, these come at an additional cost and don’t provide a worthwhile comparison. Both platforms used the same GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition graphics card.

When it comes to gaming benchmarks that include several AAA games tested at 1080p resolution, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D matched the Intel Alder Lake flagship processor, the Core i9-12900K, in 6 out of 12 games. It didn’t lose out in the rest, in fact, the US$449 chip managed to outperform the US$500+ chip that is the Core i9-12900KF in those titles, which is perhaps impressive. The advance is between 29% and an average of 10 to 15%.

Now the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D lacks overclocking capabilities and as a tradeoff for adding 3D V-Cache, AMD had to cut its clock speeds a bit to keep the traditional CPU’s workload performance are similar or a little slower compared to the standard Ryzen 7 5800X. This chip is specifically designed for gamers as such the app performance would be unnoticeable unless the app is using the extra cache in some way.

For gamers on the AM4 platform who were looking for a faster option and had doubts about whether to upgrade to Intel given their higher segment lead before the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, they now have something in which they can invest on their existing Platform. This will help AMD retain its user base until they launch their next-gen AM5 platform with Ryzen 7000 processors on the new Zen 4 core architecture. Compared to the non-3D chips brought by V-Cache, we would certainly have liked to see an even cheaper option like the Ryzen 5 5600X3D in the market, but I hope AMD continues to invest in such technologies for its future generation. of processors. The 5800X3D will be available April 20 with web reviews on April 14.
