XanxoGaming is finally done with its gaming testing on the Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor. They are the first ones to publish independent results. They purchased the processor from the retail market in Peru. But they haven’t revealed how much it cost them. It is officially to be launched at a price point of 449 USD. This is 120 to 140 USD less than Core i9-12900K MSRP.
During the testing, the 5800X3D has been put up against the Alder Lake system with the same type of memory which is DDR4-3200 CL14. For a high-end system, these are clearly not good enough specs despite being powered by the Zen3 or Alder Lake architecture. In addition, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition has been used for the gaming tests which means there is no comparison between different models of GPUs.
Since XanxoGaming is conducting CPU gaming tests, they are using resolutions of 1080p and even 720p. Users are not very likely to use these resolutions but they indeed are the best way to demonstrate the CPU gaming performance. The tests conducted using the 1080p resolution show that both processors appear to be equal. The three games that were tested are the FFXV, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and The Witcher 3.
Let’s not forget that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is AMD’s last chance at getting some users on board before they switch to the next-gen AM5 platform. It is quite disappointing though that AMD will not be having any SKUs with 3D V-Cache and more than 8 cores. However, for gamers, this might be a good switch for those who are still on the 300/400 series motherboards.
