AMD has released several benchmarks. In gaming, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D outperforms the Intel Core i9-13900K by an average of 19.5%. Also, the gap to the Ryzen 9 7950X3D will be fairly small; for most players, this clearly does not justify agreeing to an additional $250.
Ryzen 9 7900X3D and Ryzen 9 7950X3D have been on the market since February 28; The third Ryzen 7000X3D, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, by far the most interesting for gamers, will arrive a little later on April 6th. AMD has shared some benchmark results to make this processor stand out. The company specifically compares the services of its Ryzen 7 7800X3D to those of the Core i9-13900K.
As always with these internal benchmarks, treat the results with caution, though AMD usually plays it fair in this exercise; it’s always like that here. In the notes available at the end of the article, you will see that Ryzen and Core are cooled by the Arctic Liquid Freezer II solution and are paired with 32GB of DDR5-6000 memory. Strangely, AMD doesn’t list the GPU they’re using.
Thanks to this accuracy, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D processor outperforms the Core i9-13900K in games by an average of 19.5%. Remember that the Core has 24 cores/32 threads and has an MSRP of $589; The Ryzen 7 7800X3D is an 8-core/16-thread doped with L3 cache thanks to 3D V-Cache technology that will start at $449 (€ price not yet known). Tests are conducted in 1080p/High resolution. Selected games are Rainbow Six Siege, Total War: Three Kingdoms, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Horizon Zero Dawn.
Ryzen 7000X3D: New Driver Introduces Two Features Exclusive to Ryzen 9
Ryzen 7 7800X3D, Ryzen with the best price/performance ratio for gamers?
AMD didn’t directly pit the Ryzen 7 7800X3D against the Ryzen 9 7950X3D. However, in the inserted slides, the results show a difference of only three points compared to the Core i9-13900K between two Ryzens in Horizon Zero Dawn (not Down) and complete parity in Rainbow Six Siege. Suffice it to say that for gamers, the $250 gap between these two Ryzens will give the Ryzen 7 a clear edge.
The company also provides comparisons of the Ryzen 7 7800X3D and Ryzen 7 5800X3D in Dawn of War II, CS:GO, and DOTA2; The Zen 4 chip outperforms its predecessor by an average of 24%. Finally, in the application, it is the Ryzen 9 7950X3D that takes on the role of a competitor to the Core i9-13900K.
We will of course have to wait for full and independent benchmarks to decide, but at first glance the Ryzen 7 7800X3D is very promising, especially for gamers. No wonder, since the Ryzen 7 5800X3D was once the king of gaming, ahead of the Core i9-12900K at the time.
