AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D benchmarked before embargo lifted (Updated)

Although this is not a full review, it does provide a preliminary look ahead of official testing, including comparisons with competing processors.

XanxoGaming obtained a sample of the 5800X3D processor for two weeks before its official release (April 20). It turns out that this processor is pretty easy to get in Peru, despite the fact that AMD has banned XanxoGaming and they don’t even get a sample through official means.

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D is a new 8-core processor based on the Zen3 architecture and unique 3D V-Cache technology, which adds a 64MB layer of L3 cache directly above the computer chip. With such a huge cache, gaming performance is supposed to improve by 15% on average (at least officially), although it shouldn’t show substantial differences in synthetic benchmarks like those presented by XanxoGaming.

In most single-core and multi-core tests, the upcoming CPU performs as well as a Ryzen 7 5700X. This should be due to the reduced clock rates of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D compared to the previous Ryzen 7 5800X. For Blender, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D slightly outperforms the 5800X. However, neither the results of Cinebench R23, nor CPU-Z, nor Geekbench 5 are really remarkable. This isn’t surprising, given AMD has stated that 3D V-Cache doesn’t provide much speed for most applications. In mainstream software, slower clocks seem weird, but XanxoGaming says they believe better UEFI/AGESA can improve performance over time.

In Geekbench 5.4.4, the CPU scored 1639 points for single-core and 10498 points for multi-core. This is lower than the average Geekbench R7 5800X score (1671/10339 points). It also scores 617 and 6506 points on the CPU-Z benchmark, lower than the i9-12900K benchmark data.

Other results, including 1080p gaming tests, will also be released later.

Update: The Ryzen 7 5800X3D performs admirably in initial gaming tests. So far, the site has only tested Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 720p with custom extreme settings (ultra shadows). As the resolution increases, the disparities between the CPUs decrease. The 5800X3D with RTX 3080 Ti GPU is actually faster than the i9-12900KF CPU with RTX 3090 Ti, indicating that this is a CPU related test. XanxoGaming is currently testing 11 games at 1080p. The tests are done, but the data must be compared to an Intel system, which can take time. But we should see more discoveries soon.

The Core i9-12900K averages around 190 FPS in the test, which they use as a benchmark. The Core i9-12900KS achieves around 200 FPS, a little over 5% gain. Ryzen 7 5800X3D an average FPS of 230. It is a 20% boost over Core i9-12900K and a 15% increase over the Core i9-12900KS. According to the leaker, additional benchmarks will be released, at 1080p with Ultra settings.
