Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU is finally being tested by XanxoGaming. Interestingly, this seems to be the only media in the world right now that has a CPU and isn’t facing any embargo. The synthetic results of this new CPU by AMD were released and just one day later the gaming benchmarks are already there. Brace yourselves as this is probably not what many of us had in mind.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is the only game that the publication has tested so far. The testing was conducted at a 720p resolution and with custom settings. These parameters are quite commonly used for CPU tests and on top of that they, are also more than likely to show smaller differences after the resolution goes higher.
CapFrameX software was used to perform the test and the developer was directly involved too. This assures that the entire testing procedure is accurate and as comparable as possible. The CPU bound test has come with interesting results; from what we see, the 5800X3D put together with the RTX 3080 Ti GPU goes faster than the i9-12900KF processor with RTX 3090 Ti.
The data provided to us shows that the 5800X3D system gives an output of 231 FPS while the 12900K stands at 190 FPS. This means that using AMD yields a 21.58% higher performance. It is safe to say that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is 10% faster than 12900K.
At the moment, XanxoGaming is currently testing 11 game tests at the resolution of 1080p. The testing has been completed but the data still needs to be compared to the Intel system, which may take time.
AMD R7 5800X3D in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. As for comparison, the 12900KS hits ~200 FPS in this scene and the 12900K ~190 FPS.
The performance of the Ryzen is just amazing because the tested scene is very demanding/ memory-heavy.
