AMD claims up to 24% advantage over Intel's i9-13900K with their Ryzen 7 7800X3D

Is AMD's Ryzen 7 7800X3D the best CPU for gaming?

AMD claims up to 24% advantage over Intel's i9-13900K with their Ryzen 7 7800X3D

AMD releases official benchmarks for its Ryzen 7 7800X3D

Through Tom's Hardware, official gaming benchmarks for AMD's Ryzen 7 7800X3D have been released, showcasing the performance of AMD's new gaming flagship over Intel's i9-13900K and AMD's last-generation Ryzen 7 5800X3D.

When compared to Intel's i9-13900K, AMD's benchmarks showcase a 13-24% performance advantages for AMD's Ryzen 9 7800X3D. Both CPUs were said to use DDR5-6000 memory during AMD's testing, and on average AMD claims that their Ryzen 9 7800X3D is 19.5% faster than Intel's i9-13900K. 

These results from AMD are impressive, especially given the fact that the Ryzen 7 7800X3D has an MSRP of $449. That said, it is worth remembering that these performance numbers are from AMD's internal benchmarks, which means that AMD has chosen the games that they have tested. Beyond that, the gap between the i9-13900K and Ryzen 7 7800X3D could likely be narrowed if Intel's processor utilised faster DDR5 memory modules. That said, faster DDR5 would effectively make an Intel i9-13900K based system even more expensive than an otherwise equivalent Ryzen 7 7800X3D system.

Performance Gains over AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X3D

AMD first introduced their 3D V-Cache technology with their Ryzen 7 5800X3D, making it AMD's most powerful gaming processor when it launched in early 2022. AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X3D's V-Cache was so useful for gaming workloads, AMD's Zen 3 8-core Ryzen 7 5800X3D could surpass AMD's Zen 4 8-core Ryzen 7700X in many gaming workloads. 

With the addition of V-Cache, AMD's Ryzen 7 7800X3D offers users the benefits of the Ryzen 7 7700X's Zen 4 cores and the Ryzen 7 5800X3D's 3D V-Cache, giving the processor a huge performance advantage over both in gaming workloads. 

When compared to AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X3D, AMD's new Ryzen 7 7800X3D is between 21-30% faster. On average, AMD claims that their new Ryzen 7 7800X3D is 24% faster than their Ryzen 7 5800X3D. This is a significant generational leap in performance from AMD, which comes from both higher core clock speeds and the architectural changes that come with AMD's Zen 4 CPU cores.

AMD's Ryzen 7 7800X3D processor is due to launch on April 6th, and it is likely to be AMD's most in-demand processors of 2023.

Impressive numbers. Let's hope it's a big improvement, the 5800x3d is still a monster for gaming. If they don't take a solid lead it's not going to look so good for AM5 vs Intel's latest.Quote

Be interesting to see their FFXIV numbers considering the 13900K is actually 40FPS ahead of the 7950X3D in that title.Quote

They could probably get another 5% easy if they just thinned down the IHSQuote

So almost no reason to upgrade from the 5800X3D I have right now. Sweet.Quote

They won't do that. Because of the way the arch is designed it boosts to thermal limits, not clock limits. The cooler the chip runs the faster it runs. IE, IDR exactly what the thermal limit is (90?) but it will boost until it gets to that temp regardless of cooling solution. As such if you lower the temps it will boost even higher. Something they clearly don't want to happen (mostly because the chip is probably running at the safe limit as it is).

Obviously if you mod your way around it you lose any warranty, so at that point it isn't their problem any way.

These X3D chips are fragile. Such is the way when you put stuff on top of other stuff. As to how they will bode long term? remains to be seen. Kinda like how a lot of the HBM cards are dying now.Quote
