AMD’s most anticipated CPU – Ryzen 7 5800X3D will be the first and only 3D V-Cache chip based on the 7nm Zen 3 architecture and is set to launch on April 20th. AMD’s new processor will feature 8 cores, 16 threads and an extra amount of L3 cache – to 96MB, as the clock speeds will be kept at 3.4GHz base and 4.5GHz boost with a TDP of 105W.
The new CPU has been tested up against the Intel Core i9-12900KS processor and based on the gaming performance benchmarks, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D outperformed the Intel Core i9-12900KS. The first gaming benchmarks of AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D have been released by Xanxo Gaming.
They ran the benchmark for Shadow of the Tomb Raider at a 1280×720 resolution with low settings and the CPU tests showed that the 5800X3D performed better than Core i9-12900KS, as AMD’s processor was 16% faster than the Core i9-12900KS. The interesting part here is that even though the Intel PC was the more powerful, paired with a GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, while the AMD test bench used a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, the AMD’s chip still outpaced the Intel’s one in the gaming benchmark.
The test results showed that while the Core i9-12900KS was only able to achieve around 200 fps, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D managed an average framerate of 231 fps.
Lastly, but not least, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D will be priced at $449, compared to the $799 price tag of the Intel Core i9-12900KS.
