AMD has lastly shared its personal official gaming benchmarks of the hotly-anticipated $449 Ryzen 7 7800X3D going toe-to-toe with Intel’s flagship $589 Core i9-13900K and profitable by a median of 20%, and as much as 24% in a single title. The brand new benchmarks additionally give us a restricted comparability of the Ryzen 7 7800X3D with the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, too, implying that the cheaper chip gives almost the identical degree of gaming efficiency because the dear flagship.
AMD has already launched its flagship 3D V-Cache-powered $699 Ryzen 9 7950X3D to crucial acclaim, with the brand new chip taking the crown because the greatest CPU for gaming whereas sustaining a commanding presence on our CPU benchmark hierarchy. The corporate additionally low-key launched the $599 Ryzen 9 7900X3D with out sampling press (you may see our overview on the hyperlink).
Nevertheless, AMD has held again launching its $449 eight-core Ryzen 7 7800X3D chips till April and has been stingy with the benchmarks, having solely in contrast it to the previous-gen Ryzen 7 5800X3D in gaming, and never the totally extra related Core i9-13900K and Ryzen 9 7950X3D.
That may be as a result of the 7800X3D is just too good for its personal good: the eight-core, 16-thread Ryzen 7 7800X3D stands out because the go-to mannequin for avid gamers with this technology, so it will be the large quantity vendor. AMD’s reps inform us the 78000X3D will supply the lion’s share of 3D V-Cache’s gaming efficiency, however at a way more inexpensive value level than the opposite X3D fashions. So naturally, if the 7800X3D gives almost the identical degree of gaming efficiency for $250 lower than the flagship, that will not go away a lot motive to purchase the pricier fashions as soon as the 7800X3D arrives.
We’ll need to see issues pan out in our personal benchmark testing, but it surely appears to be like just like the Ryzen 7 7800X3D will steal the efficiency crown again from Intel’s Raptor Lake when it arrives subsequent month. AMD’s new benchmarks beneath actually paint that image, too.
As with all vendor-provided benchmarks, take these with a grain of salt. (We have included the check notes beneath with the check setup particulars, however the ‘5’ footnote would not listing the 13900K particulars; these are within the ‘2’ footnote).
We have seen the underside half of the chart, which compares the Ryzen 7 7800X3D to the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, earlier than. However the high half is new with 4 gaming benchmarks versus the Core i9-13900K.
AMD claims the Ryzen 7 7800X3D is 20% quicker, on common, in gaming than the Core i9-13900K throughout these gaming benchmarks. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D carves out a 24% win in Horizon Zero Daybreak, a 23% win in Pink Lifeless Redemption 2, an 18% win in Whole Conflict: Three Kingdoms, and a 13% win in Rainbow Six Siege.
This can be a restricted number of video games, they usually are usually the sorts of titles that profit from the gaming advantages of the 3D V-Cache, whereas some video games do not profit fairly as a lot. Conversely, another video games profit from the tech much more, so this listing is not totally skewed.
The zoomed-out model consists of the Ryzen 9 7950X3D vs Core i9-13900K comparability. Right here we see that AMD examined two of the identical video games in opposition to the Core i9-13900K with each the 7950X3D and the 7800X3D, which helps us make at the least a small comparability between the 2 AMD chips.
In Horizon Zero Daybreak (not “down,” as listed within the slide), we are able to see that the 7800X3D is a mere 3% slower than the 7950X3D, whereas the 2 chips tie in Rainbow Six Seige.
Sure, two benchmarks do not give us a lot to work with, but it surely actually implies that the 7800X3D will just do what we have suspected — present inside 5% of the efficiency of the 7950X3D, however for $250 much less. We’ll need to see how that pans out throughout a bigger gamut of gaming benchmarks in our overview, after all.
|Worth||Cores / Threads (P+E)||P-Core Base / Increase Clock (GHz)||Cache (L2/L3)||TDP / PBP / MTP|
|Ryzen 9 7950X3D||$699||16 / 32||4.2 / 5.7||144MB (16+128)||120W / 162W|
|Ryzen 9 7900X3D||$599||12 / 24||4.4 / 5.6||140MB (12+128)||120W / 162W|
|Ryzen 7 7800X3D||$449||8 /16||4.2 / 5.0||104MB (8+96)||120W / 162W|
|Ryzen 7 5800X3D||$348||8 /16||3.4 / 4.5||104MB (8+96)||105W|
AMD’s Ryzen 7 7800X3D has loads of promise, and we’re certain that it is going to be this technology’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D — the overwhelming selection for avid gamers which might be solely fascinated about gaming.
The 12-core and 16-core Ryzen 7000X3D deliver 3D V-Cache tech to AMD’s multi-compute-chiplet processors for the primary time (deep dive right here), however they require particular dealing with by way of AMD’s drivers to make sure the very best efficiency, whereas the Ryzen 7 7800X3D has a single chiplet and can function extra like a conventional CPU. AMD’s particular driver sauce does an awesome job of delivering distinctive gaming efficiency with out person intervention, however the 7800X3D can have a less complicated plug-and-play implementation.
AMD was additionally uncharacteristically silent in regards to the 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X3D, however for various causes. AMD shared zero official benchmarks for the 7900X3D and did not pattern it to the press. We are able to see why; in our Ryzen 9 7900X3D overview, we noticed that the price-to-performance ratio was lower than inspiring. When you’re shopping for on the excessive finish, there isn’t any motive to not plunk down the comparatively small further quantity to get the flagship Ryzen 9 7950X3D.
In distinction, it seems that the Ryzen 7 7800X3D would be the exact opposite; this chip may severely cannibalize gross sales for the higher-end fashions. We’ll see quickly sufficient, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D involves market on April 6, 2023, and you’ll make certain that we’ll have our overview printed in the identical timeframe.
