Tom’s Hardware recently shared some slides indicating that AMD has officially announced the performance specs for its new 8-core Ryzen 7 CPU with 3D V-Cache. However, it’s important to note that only a limited number of benchmarks were provided for specific titles, so it’s too early to make any definitive judgments about its overall performance at this point.
The 7800X3D CPU boasts 8 cores, 96MB of L3 cache, a TDP rating of 120W, and can achieve a boost clock of up to 5.0 GHz. It has a slightly higher TDP rating than the 8-Core Ryzen 7 7700X and a lower boost clock by 400 MHz compared to the non-X3D SKU. The CPU was benchmarked against the 24-core Core i9-13900K processor, which is Intel’s second-best Raptor Lake desktop CPU. It’s worth noting that both the 7800X3D and 13900K systems were tested using the same DDR5-6000 memory kit.
AMD has released the data on the 1080p gaming performance of their new 7800X3D processor in competitive games like Rainbow Six Siege, Total War: Three Kingdoms, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Horizon Zero Dawn. Based on these figures, it appears that the 7800X3D may perform anywhere from 13% to 24% better than Intel’s Core i9-13900K processor, with an average improvement of around 19.5%. However, it’s important to keep in mind that these benchmarks were provided by AMD, so actual performance may differ from what’s been shown.
Based on benchmarks provided by AMD, the new 8-core Ryzen processor featuring Zen4 architecture with 3D V-Cache is expected to perform 21% to 30% better than the previous generation Zen3 CPU with 3D V-Cache (5800X3D). On average, this represents a 24% improvement. To make this comparison, AMD used three different titles – Warhammer Dawn of War II, CS:GO, and DOTA2.
Additionally, Tom’s Hardware has noted that these benchmarks suggest the 7800X3D will perform within 5% of the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, despite being priced $250 lower. Furthermore, this 8-core CPU will be $130 less expensive than the current price of the Core i9-13900K.
