A test involving a retail chip, not a technical sample.
the Ryzen 7 5800X3D will be released on April 20 at a recommended rate of $449. We’ve had a first idea of his performance in Geekbench 5 at the end of March† Here’s a slightly more complete overview thanks to a test from XanxoGaming.
The tested processor is not a technical example, but a retail unit. Note that XanxoGaming is a Peruvian site. It’s blacklisted by AMD, so it doesn’t have to worry about adhering to nondisclosure agreements. Their test includes several synthetic benchmarks: Cinbench R23, Geekbench 5, CPU-Z, and Blender Benchmark. Unfortunately, the site’s journalists haven’t put the Ryzen 7 to the test yet for video games, which, according to AMD’s communications, is its field of choice. XanxoGaming will make such trials in the future; we will update this article when the time comes.
Processor and test system
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D has 8 cores/16 threads and takes advantage of Zen 3’s CPU architecture. It relies on 96MB of L3 cache in total thanks to the 64MB added via 3D V-Cache technology. The chip maintains a TDP of 105 W like the Ryzen 7 5800X, but sees its frequencies reduced: they are 3.4 GHz (base) and 4.5 GHz (Boost).
The CPU was tested by XanxoGaming using a Gigabyte AORUS Master X570 motherboard with the F36C BIOS said to be optimized for the 5800X3D. The Ryzen works with 16 GB DDR4-3200 memory and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. The test system runs on Windows 10.
In Geekbench 5.4.4, the processor scores 1639 points in single-core and 10,498 points in multi-core. The latter score is much lower than the previously obtained points, as they were around 11,200 points; however, the operating system was Windows 11. The Ryzen 7 5800X averages 1671 points in single-core / 10,339 points in multi-core.
In CPU-Z, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D achieves 617 points in single-core and 6506 points in multi-core. The average Ryzen 7 5800X scores are 640 and 6654 points, respectively.
In Blender Benchmark, the Ryzen 7 with 3D V-Cache is between 3 and 11% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X.
Finally, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D scores 1493 points and 15,060 points in Cinebench R23. The Ryzen 7 5800X average scores are 1619 and 15,228 points.
Well, you will have noticed, on the benchmarks offered here, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D doesn’t really stand out from its ancestor and even seems to suffer from its lower frequencies. However, as mentioned at the beginning of the article, AMD mainly shows off its improved performance in video games, an area that XanxoGaming has not explored.
