AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D strikes more gaming wins against Intel Core i9

Cache is king for gaming.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D

Upcoming AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D, infused with 3D V-Cache technology, has been subjected a battery of gaming tests showing strong performance against an Intel Core i9-12900KF processor.

Previously, we glimpsed at Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s performance on this processor. Now, days before official launch, we are pleased with a more extensive game list, as XanxoGaming runs AMD’s newest consumer processor through the gaming gauntlet.

Tests show this Ryzen chip achieves mixed results against Intel’s Core i9-12900KF, which is merely a 12900K without an iGPU, winning by a comfortable margin in some titles while staying level in others. Performance delta can be as high as 29 per cent in AMD’s favour, albeit with an average of 10 to 15 per cent.

Largest gains are seen in Final Fantasy XV (29 per cent) and The Witcher 3 (22 per cent) at 1080p; Shadow of the Tomb Raider (25 per cent) and Middle-earth: Shadow of War (12 per cent) at 720p. For a more detailed look head on to XanxoGaming’s review.

The keen-eyed among you will have noticed that Windows 10 alongside DDR4 were used for both sets of benchmarks, which can give AMD a bit of an advantage. With that said, these are preliminary tests, so wait for the in-depth Club386 review before passing judgement.

AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D is, as far as we know, the last performant CPU coming to the AM4 socket. Hopefully, AM5 can stay with us as long as AM4 did.
