AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D just beat one of Intel’s best gaming CPUs

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D has just been tested in a gaming environment, and this time the results were positive: it managed to beat Intel Core i9-12900K by over 21%.

earlier only synthetic benchmarks of the processor have been leaked. The CPU could not convince with its results in these tests.

This test of the upcoming 3D V-Cache AMD Ryzen 7 5800XD follows the benchmarks published yesterday. Peruvian website XanxoGaming was able to receive the processor before its official release. Most releases are embargoed, but XanxoGaming has been blacklisted by AMD and hasn’t received a sample of the processor, so it’s free to test and post the results.

Only one game has been tested so far: Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The settings used were optimized for CPU testing and not so much for actual gaming: the game was played at 720p resolution and on ultra settings with custom ultra shadows. When VideoCardz Notesthis type of game setting is often used for this type of testing.

XanxoGaming used CapFrameX software to test the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D. For testing purposes, the processor was paired with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card and DDR 3200 memory.

The system was able to achieve an average of 231 frames per second (fps) in this test. To put those numbers in perspective, XanxoGaming also tested a setup with one of Intel’s best CPUs, the Core i9-12900KF, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, and DDR5-4800 RAM.

Despite the fact that the Intel rig was better on paper – right down to the best GPU currently on offer – the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D still wins the match by a good amount. The Core i9-12900KF based system only averaged 190 fps. AMD was able to assert itself against Intel in this test and outperform the Core i9-12900KF by 21.58%.

Of course, the test was very CPU-oriented, which is shown by the fact that AMD still won in a technically inferior gaming setup. AMD predicted that its new 3D V-Cache beast would beat Intel’s best: the company promised an increase of about 10% over that Core i9-12900K. However, synthetic benchmarks weren’t favorable for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, and the processor didn’t fare as well in those. However, it’s clear that it excels in a gaming environment, and even sustained testing could support AMD’s predictions.

XanxoGaming will continue to test the CPU in various games, so hopefully we’ll get a report soon that paints a clearer picture of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D. So far things are looking up in terms of gaming.
