AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU 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 review of the CPU. Based on benchmarks for gaming performance, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D offers absolutely amazing results compared to Intel’s flagship Core i9-12900K Alder Lake CPU.

AMD beats Intel in gaming with 3D V-Cache-driven Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU, up to 29% performance versus 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 CPU will offer 8 cores, 16 threads and 100 MB combined cache thanks to its extra 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.

In terms of pricing, the CPU will have the same MSRP as the 5800X for $ 449 US, which means the non-3D chip will get a price reduction to either $ 399 or even lower. The price makes the 5800X3D more expensive than the Intel Core i7-12700K, which, however, offers more cores / threads, but lower 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 test bed with DDR4-3200 CL14 memory and compared to an Intel Core i9-12900K that also runs on a Z690 platform with DDR4-3200 CL14 memory. While Alder Lake can certainly support much faster memory compared to the AMD platform, especially DDR5, these come at an extra cost and do not provide a valid comparison. Both platforms used the same GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition graphics card.

As for gaming benchmarks, which include several AAA games tested at 1080p resolution, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D flagship Intel Alder Lake CPU, Core i9-12900K, matched in 6 out of the 12 games. It did not lose in the rest, in fact, the $ 449 US chip managed to surpass the $ 500 US + chip, which is the Core i9-12900KF in these titles, which is perhaps impressive. The lead ranges from up to 29% to an average of 10-15%.

Now AMD Ryzen 7 lacks 5800X3D overclocking capabilities, and as a trade-off to add 3D V-Cache, AMD had to slow down its clock speeds a bit so that the traditional CPU workload performance would be either the same or a bit slower compared to standard Ryzen 7 5800X. This chip is specifically said to be designed for gamers as such, the performance of the application would be imperceptible unless the app somehow makes use of the extra cache.

For gamers on the AM4 platform who were looking for a faster option and had another guess as to whether to move over to Intel given their higher lead in the segment before the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, now have something they can invest in on their existing platform . This will help AMD maintain its user base until they launch their next-generation AM5 platform with Ryzen 7000 CPUs on the newer Zen 4 core architecture. Given the huge increase in performance over non-3D chips that V-Cache brings, we would certainly have loved to see an even cheaper option such as the Ryzen 5 5600X3D on the market, but hopefully AMD will continue to invest in such technologies for its future generation of processors. 5800X3D will be available on April 20th with reviews online on April 14th.
