Ryzen 7 5800X3D – Mixed bag of Feeling’s Or Really?

The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is marginally faster and sometimes even slower than the 5800X when it comes to synthetic benchmarks like GeekBench, CPU-Z and Cinebench, but the processor really shines in games where it manages to dethrone the 12th gen Intel Core i9 12900K.

The all-new AMD Ryzen 7 5800x 3D Launched with all new V-Cache Design which was said to bring a lot of performance improvement to CPU bound titles,

Recently released benchmarks clearly show that the claims AMD made, Speak for themselves.

Ryzen 7 5800X3D – Performance Analysis

The benchmarks were posted by XanxoGaming and CapFrameX . The new 3D V-Cache CPU doesn’t impress a lot in standard workloads, its gaming performance has been said to offer an average 15% increase over the non-3D chips. As such, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is now being tested in Shadow of The Tomb Raider.

Intel undoubtedly managed to regain the performance crown for desktop and laptop processors with the release of the 12th gen Alder Lake models, although that the victory came 1 year after the Zen 3 launch. While AMD is preparing the Zen 4 counterattack for a late 2022 release, Team Red is also testing the waters with the first 3D V-Cache technology implemented in models such as the Ryzen 7 5800X3D that is scheduled to release on April 20

There are hardly any complete reviews for this model out there at the moment regardless of the few retailers that are already selling it, but from what XanxoGaming has tested thus far, it looks like the additional L3 cache can help the X3D processors get the edge even over Intel’s i9-12900K in games.

XanxoGaming first tested the Ryzen 7 5800X3D with a Gigabyte AORUS Master X570 mobo (F36C BIOS) in synthetic benchmarks, and the results are rather underwhelming. This CPU scored 1639 points in single-core and 10948 points in multi-core running the latest Geekbench build. These results are slightly lower than the regular 5800X, unfortunately

For CPU-Z and Cinebench, the 5800X3D appears to be 25% slower in single-core loads and up to 50% slower in multi-core loads compared to the i9-12900K. The situation is somewhat better in Blender, where the 5800X3D is between 3% and 11% faster than the 5800X, Synthetic Scores Hardly Matter now a days, they are there if you want them.

The gaming side, however, looks way better for the 5800X3D model. Despite the clear hardware advantage for the Intel platform that benefits from DDR5-4800 DRAM over DDR4-3200 and an RTX 3090 Ti over an RTX 3080 Ti, the 5800X3D still manages to get around 21% more fps compared to the i9-12900K and around 16% more fps compared to the i9-12900KS in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. In order to minimize the GPU reliance

XanxoGaming chose to maximize the test for the CPUs in 720p low with full shadow details that are hard on the processors. Moreover, the 5800X3D results can be further improved by the upcoming AGESA 1207 update, as announced by the renowned 1usmus.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D is going to offer 8 cores, 16 threads, and 100 MB of combined cache thanks to its additional 64 MB 3D Stacked SRAM design. Clock speeds will be maintained at 3.4 GHz base and 4.5 GHz boost with a TDP of 105W. It has an official MSRP of $449 US, the same as the Ryzen 7 5800X when it launched and will be available starting the 20th of April.

We have to wait a bit longer till the product launches, and reviewers get their hands on the product, then it would be fare and square to draw the line of conclusion.
