AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D appeared in Geekbench database

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D will be available on April 20 this year. This is the first consumer-grade processor with 3D V-Cache technology, which brings an additional 64MB of 7nm SRAM cache to the CCD. The L3 cache capacity of this 8-core 16-thread Zen 3 architecture processor has been increased from 32MB to 96MB, and the capacity has tripled.

AMD provided data on the Ryzen 7 5800X 3D at CES 2022 earlier this year, and its overall gaming performance was an average of 15% faster than the Ryzen 9 5900X. Recently, Twitter user @BenchLeaks found that AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D has appeared in the database of Geekbench 5.
The base clock of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is 3.4 GHz and the boost clock is 4.5 GHz, which is 400 MHz and 200 MHz lower than the Ryzen 7 5800X, respectively. It should come as no surprise that the Ryzen 7 5800X outperformed the Ryzen 7 5800X3D by 2.3% in single-core benchmarks. In the multi-core benchmarks, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D showed an advantage, beating the Ryzen 7 5800X by about 8.9 percent, but still trailing the Ryzen 9 5900X and the Core i7-12700K.

Judging from the Geekbench 5 benchmark results exposed this time, it seems that the 3D V-Cache technology cannot make up for the gap in the number of cores and frequency of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. According to the information previously announced by AMD, the price of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D has reached $449, which has no price advantage or is even more expensive than the Ryzen 9 5900X and the Core i7-12700K. In addition, AMD has confirmed that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D does not support overclocking as defined by the standard, which is also a blow to many players.
