The AMD CPU Ryzen 7 5800X3D can place itself in Geekbench 5 ahead of the model without an additional cache.
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D looks good in Geekbench 5.
With the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, AMD wants to offer a new CPU from April 20th that can access a stacked cache. AMD is already promoting the processor as the best gaming CPU. But the Ryzen 7 5800X3D can also hold its own against the Ryzen 5 5800X in Geekbench 5:
In the test run
the new processor calculates nine percent faster with 3D cache. Specifically, the CPU in Geekbench 5 gets 1,637 points with one core and 11,198 points with the computing load on all eight cores.
Introductory price of $449
The L3 cache of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which has been expanded by 64 MB, is primarily responsible for this. AMD wants to sell the optimized processor at the same introductory price as the model without an additional cache. Accordingly, a sales price of 449 US dollars is targeted. The Ryzen 7 5800X is sometimes already available in Germany for 325 euros, the twelve-core Ryzen 9 5900X is significantly more expensive at 444 euros. It remains to be seen to what extent the new Ryzen 7 5800X3D with a price of 449 US dollars can hold its own against the two in-house competitors.
competition from Intel
In the battle for the fastest gaming CPU, AMD also has a strong competitor in the Intel processor Core i7-12700K, which is 25 percent ahead of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D in Geekbench. The significantly more expensive Core i9-12900KS is an even better choice for gamers. In terms of price, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D ranks right between the Core i7-12700K and the Core i9-12900K. In return, the AMD chip offers a 3.4 GHz base clock and 4.5 GHz turbo clock, 32 MB L3 cache, 64 MB 3D V cache, but unfortunately the CPU cannot be overclocked. The reason for this might be the higher heat development due to the stacked cache.
