How does AMD’s first processor with 3D V-Cache fare? First benchmark results for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
There is still little to see of the lead of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
With the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, AMD wants to retake the lead in gaming CPUs. Responsible for this is an additional L3 cache with 64 MB, which is piggybacked on the already known Ryzen 7 5800X. Actually, the release of the CPU is only planned in two weeks on April 20th. However, a Peruvian website has already got hold of a copy and was able to put the Ryzen 7 5800X3D through its paces.
The mainboard Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master was used as a test platform. This was supported by 16 GB DDR4 3200 MHz RAM with CL14 and a Geforce RTX 3080 Ti. Together with this system, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D only achieved unimpressive values: In Cinebench R23, the CPU got 1,493 points in single core mode and 15,060 points with all cores. The Ryzen 7 5800X without 3D V-Cache already achieves 1,600 or 15,500 points. If you also use Intel’s Core i9-12900K for comparison, which is also well suited for gamers, you get 2,000 or 27,000 points on this CPU in Cinebench.
Geekbench 5 and CPU-Z
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is still disappointing in Geekbench 5: With 1,639 and 10,498 points, the new processor is only about the same as the Ryzen 7 5800X, which comes in at 1,671 and 10,339 points. Even CPU-Z only gives the Ryzen 7 5800X3D 617 or 6,506 points. Compared to a Core i9-12900K from Intel, which achieves 831 and 11,440 points, these are also not convincing values.
Drivers and UEFI?
It is to be hoped that the additional performance promised by AMD through the 3D cache will have a greater impact in games. In normal applications, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is often even behind the standard 5800X model, which is clocked higher. It should be borne in mind, however, that a beta UEFI was used in the test. Even the chipset driver might not be final yet.
