Second, just behind the Core i9-12900KS, at 720p and 1080p. It’s in fifth place for 4K gaming.
After XanxoGaming, it is the turn of the TechPowerUp site to give its verdict on the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, still a few hours early; In principle, the official date for lifting the embargo is April 14. Remember that AMD will market the processor from April 20. Our peers tested the Ryzen 5800X3D in a host of games, at 720p, 1080p, 1440p, and 2160p. The games are Battlefield V, Borderlands 3, Cyberpunk 2077, Doom Eternal, Far Cry 5, Metro Exodus, RDR2, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Conversely in the XanxoGaming testTechPowerUp’s compares the performance of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D to that of a multitude of other processors, including its direct predecessor, the Ryzen 7 5800X.
To make their measurements, W1zzard installed all of the Ryzen Zen 3s on an MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus motherboard; the Ryzen 7 5800X3D takes advantage of the AGESA 184.108.40.206c BIOS which is supposed to take full advantage of it. On the RAM side, there are 2 x 16 GB of DDR4-3600. The Alder Lake processors take place on an ASUS Z690 Maximus Hero motherboard and are powered by 2 x 16GB of DDR5-6000 memory. Rocket Lake chips are powered by an ASUS Z590 Maximus XIII Hero motherboard and are paired with 2 x 16GB of DDR4-3600. Finally, the Comet Lake is powered by an ASUS Z490 Maximus XII Extreme motherboard still equipped with 2 x 16 GB of DDR4-3600.
All processors are cooled by the 360mm Arctic Liquid Freezer II AIO kit. Systems run on Windows 11 64-bit. The graphics card used is the EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra.
At 1080p, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D sits between the Core i9-12900K and Core i9-12900KS. It beats the Ryzen 7 5800X by 7.7 points. At 1440p, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D sits at the top of the rankings. It widens a gap of 6.4 points with the Ryzen 7 5800X.
For completeness, note that at 720p, AMD’s 3D V-Cache processor is on par with the Core i9-12900K and 1.9 points behind the Core i9-12900KS (101.9%). The Ryzen 7 5800X has a relative performance of 89.4%.
Gaps are minimal at 2160p. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is outperformed by the Core i5-12600K and Core i7-12700K both at 100.3%, Core i9-12900K/KS at 100.7% and 100.9% respectively. The Ryzen 7 5800X is at 98.7%.
As W1zzard, the author of the file, points out, performance differences vary greatly depending on the game. For example, at 720p, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D beats its counterpart by 10.6 points on average, but by 43 points in a game like Borderlands 3. In this title, the chip delivers an average of 139 FPS at 720p, vs. the 120.2 FPS of the Core i9. -12900KS and 96.6 IPS for Ryzen 7 5800X. This hierarchy is found at 1080p, with an average of 138.5 IPS for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, 120.6 IPS for the Core i9-12900KS, and 96.7 IPS for the Ryzen 7 5800X.
A few words about consumption to finish. In single-core, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D has the same consumption as the Ryzen 7 5800X: 76 W for the entire system. It’s less greedy on multicore in Cinebench, at 166 W vs. 175 W, even for the full PC. A Stress Test Prime 95 indicates a consumption of 176 W for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, 158 W for the Ryzen 7 5800X.
Overall, with a single core power efficiency of 12.8 kJ, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is the second best performer, just behind the Ryzen 7 5800X (12.7 kJ). On the other hand, with 10.5 kJ instead of 10 kJ in multi-core, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D leaves the best places in this category to position itself in the middle of the group, between the Core i9-12900K and the Core i9-12900KS.
