The premiere of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor, which will replace the title of king of gaming performance, is getting closer and closer. The good performance of the processor was confirmed by the first tests published on the web.
Ryzen 7 5800X3D – The new king of gaming performance is coming?
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D was announced at the beginning of the year, so its specs come as no particular surprise to us.

The Ryzen 7 5800X3D specs are similar to the previous Ryzen 7 5800X specs. The main difference is that the 5800X3D uses 3D V-Cache technology, which is an additional level 3 cache.
The manufacturer boasts that the increased cache capacity translates into a significant increase in gaming performance. How is it in practice?
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Processor Tests
It so happened that the XanxoGaming editorial team from Peru bought a new processor and praised it in the first performance tests.
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D in the Cinbench R23 benchmark scored 15060 points in the multi-core test and 1493 points in the single-core test. For comparison, the Ryzen 7 5800X scores around 15,500 and 1,600 points here, so we’re talking about slightly worse results (most likely due to the 5800X3D’s lower clock speed).
It’s also worth noting the results in Blender Benchmark. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D scores about 246 points in three tests, and the regular Ryzen 7 5800X around 238 points — so the difference is about 3% in favor of the newer model.
The results in games will be more interesting. The editors used a configuration with a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card and 4 x 8 GB DDR4 3200MHz CL14 memory.
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D in Shadow of the Tomb Raider (DX12) averages 231 fps. This is a much better result compared to what the top Intel models offer – the Core i9-12900K / KF reaches around 190 fps, and the Core i9-12900KS around 200 fps. However, it should be noted that the tests were conducted in 720p, where the processor has a significant impact on performance (at 1080p or 4K, the difference between models will certainly be less).
Will the Ryzen 7 5800X3D prove to be a new hit for gamers? It is true that so far we only know the results of one match, but the results look very promising. So it remains to wait for the official premiere and processor tests – the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is officially scheduled to go on sale on April 20 and will cost $449 (the same as the Ryzen 7 5800X).
