AMD’s New Ryzen 7 5800X3D Processor Release Date, Review And Performance Score!

A release date and pricing have been confirmed for AMD’s latest desktop CPU, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which was first announced earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. It will be available for purchase on April 20th for $449, bringing with it what AMD proudly proclaims to be the “world’s fastest gaming processor” to market.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D specification

Aside from having eight cores and 16 threads, the new AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D is nearly identical to the old AMD Ryzen 7 5800X model, and it is also compatible with AMD’s AM4 socket. However, there is one significant difference: the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is the first processor to include AMD’s 3D-stacking V-Cache technology, which allows AMD to increase the L3 cache from 32MB to 96MB. According to the business, the increased cache should result in a 15 percent increase in overall performance when compared to the Ryzen 5900X. (despite the fact that the 5900X has 12 cores and 24 threads).

Also announced were a number of new Zen 2 and Zen 3 desktop processors that will be available at various price points throughout the company’s lineup, ranging from the $299 Ryzen 7 5700X (which features eight cores, 16 threads, and a boosted clock speed of 4.6GHz) to the $99 Ryzen 3 4100 at the bottom of the company’s lineup.

The AMD Wraith Cooler will be included with the Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 models, which will be available starting on April 4th, just a few days before the Ryzen 5800X3D becomes available.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D review

The new AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D is here, and it’s the red team’s fastest gaming processor yet. It also provides a value proposition that Intel’s elite gaming CPUs cannot match, even if they are the faster chips in the end. But that shouldn’t change the fact that AMD’s new chip is a technically challenging beast, packing an excessive amount of cache into its new CPU using the latest TSMC packaging processes.

After all, what are you supposed to do when you can’t get any high frequency out of your processor architecture? You load it up with a lot more cache memory and hope for the best. That’s what AMD has done with its Infinity Cache on the GPU side, pairing up to 128MB with its RDNA 2 graphics cards to great effect, and it’s now doing the same with its CPUs.

AMD’s New Ryzen 7 5800X3D Performance Score

We pitted AMD’s best CPU against what the red team originally referred to as its best gaming processor, the Ryzen 9 5950X. The rhetoric appears to have shifted since launch, with AMD now claiming that the Ryzen 9 5900X is that chip, despite early claims that the top 16-core 5950X was bin sorted to offer the best performance in all areas, including gaming.

We also put it up against Intel’s flagship processors, the Core i9 12900K and the brand new, limited-edition Core i9 12900KS. These are Intel’s top gaming processors, and they serve as a barometer for where AMD and Intel’s respective chips stand in terms of hurling gaming frame rates around your screen.

The compute performance metrics have been retested to highlight the differences, but the real meat is in the gaming speeds. To ensure that our tests aren’t GPU limited, we’re testing at 1080p with an Nvidia RTX 3080 FE card. This will show where performance gains for one CPU or another can be found.

The catch is that at higher resolutions, the differences become significantly smaller as game efficiency becomes increasingly reliant on GPU performance and the speed of a CPU becomes insignificant beyond a certain point. But that’s something we’ll discuss later. For the time being, let’s focus on the actual performance.

Overall, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D either matches or outperforms the Ryzen 9 5950X. That’s an excellent result given that the top Ryzen is still an expensive CPU and, more than ever, a productivity chip with little else.
