AMD will be releasing their line of Ryzen 7000X3D processors on February 28th starting with the Ryzen 9 7950X3D and Ryzen 9 7900X3D. The Ryzen 9 7950X3D is of course the flagship of the line packing in 16-cores, 32-threads, and a total of 144 MB of cache. This chip has shown up both Geekbench 5 and Blender benchmarks over the weekend.
Starting with Geekbench 5 the chip scores 2,157 points in the single-core test and 21,841 points in the multi-core test. This is compared to a normal Ryzen 9 7950X which scores 2,246 points in the single-core and 25,275 in the multi-core.
Next up is Blender. In this test the Ryzen 9 7950X3D scores 558.59 points, while a Ryzen 9 7950X scores 590.28 points.
X3D parts having lower benchmark scores is nothing new and the 4.2 GHz base clock of the Ryzen 9 7950X3D has a lot to do with the lower scores. It will be interesting to see some gaming benchmarks comparing the two processors, that is where the X3D parts really shine.
