After the Ryzen 7 5800X3D disappointed yesterday in synthetic benchmarks, it shows its potential in games.
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D only develops its full performance in games.
Just yesterday we reported that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D expected for April 20 does not offer the hoped-for additional performance in synthetic benchmarks such as Cinebench and Geekbench. In some cases, the CPU with 3D V-Cache is even behind the normal Ryzen 7 5800X model, which is better off in these benchmarks due to a higher clock rate.
Special case: gaming
Today, however, tests of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D have appeared in games. The XanxoGaming website has now also included the new processor in gaming benchmarks. The CPU was supported by a Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master, 32 GB DDR4-3200 and a Geforce RTX 3080 Ti FE. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is cooled by an Arctic Liquid Freezer II 360. A resolution of 720p was selected to test the limits of the CPU in the gaming tests.
Before the Intel competition
In comparison with the Core i9-12900KS and the Core i9-12900K, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D did very well. Although the Intel CPUs were paired with a more powerful GPU in the form of the RTX 3090 Ti, the new AMD processor clearly beat the competitors in the benchmark. In the game “Shadow of the Tomb Raider” the Ryzen 7 5800X3D averaged 231 frames per second. The Core i9-12900K only reached 190 frames per second and the Core i9-12900KS also lagged behind the new AMD chip with 3D V-Cache at 200 frames per second. Despite the slower graphics card (RTX 3080 Ti vs. RTX 3090 Ti), the Ryzen 7 5800X3D was 21.58 percent ahead of the Core i9-12900K in this test run. Apparently, the new AMD processor offers the decisive advantage in games that has not yet been seen in synthetic benchmarks.
