After the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D disappointed in synthetic benchmarks, the CPU shows its full potential in games and sometimes leaves the direct competitor Intel Core i9-12900K far behind.
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is convincing in games.
The first synthetic benchmarks of the
5800X3D were disappointing. But AMD’s CPU with 3D V-Cache, which is expected for April 20th, only seems to show its full potential in games. Once again, benchmarks from the Peruvian website XanxoGaming show that the new Ryzen processor can only fully exploit its performance advantage in games. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D with the Intel CPU had to do this
(600€) measure. DDR4-3200 CL14 was used as main memory, the resolution was limited to 720p and 1080p. The maximum graphics settings were selected for this.
Well ahead of 12900K in many games
The benchmarks showed that the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D is mostly on par with the Core i9-12900K. The two CPUs often only distinguish a few frames per second. In three cases, however, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D was able to use its additional cache to its advantage: the new Ryzen chip in “FFXV” achieves 217 frames per second, while the 12900K only achieves 168 frames per second. There is also a big difference in “SOTTR” from 181 to 164 frames per second in favor of the AMD processor. In “The Witcher 3” the Ryzen 7 5800X3D achieves 253 frames per second, the 12900K only achieves 207 frames per second.

Get the edge with 3D V-Cache
Apparently, with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, AMD actually has a CPU up its sleeve that is very well suited for games. Since the Core i9-12900K is significantly more expensive than the new Ryzen chip, it is surprising that both processors are usually on par. Depending on the game, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D can even leave the Intel processor far behind thanks to its stacked additional cache.
