AMD shared the gaming performance of the Ryzen 7 7800X3D

At this year’s CES 2023 conference, AMD unveiled a variety of new products, with the most notable being the Ryzen 7000X3D series processors, which feature 3D vertical cache (3D V-Cache) technology. Unlike the previous generation, which only had one product, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, AMD has released three processors simultaneously: the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and Ryzen 7 7800X3D. All three processors have an increased L3 cache of 64MB and a TDP of 120W.

Currently, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D and Ryzen 9 7900X3D are available for purchase, while the remaining Ryzen 7 7800X3D will not be released until April 6th. According to a TomsHardware report, AMD officially shared the gaming performance of the Ryzen 7 7800X3D for the first time, comparing it to Intel’s Core i9-13900K and the previous generation Ryzen 7 5800X3D.

In comparison with the Core i9-13900K, the tested games included “Rainbow Six”, “Total War: Three Kingdoms”, “Red Dead Redemption 2”, and “Horizon: Zero Dawn”, while in the comparison with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, three games were changed, namely “Warhammer: Dawn of War 3”, “CS:GO”, and “DOTA2”. All games were played at a resolution of 1080P and at high-quality settings.

According to official data from AMD, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D outperformed the Core i9-13900K by 13% to 24% in the four tested games and outperformed the Ryzen 7 5800X3D by 21% to 30%. As TomsHardware puts it, the gaming performance gap between the Ryzen 7 7800X3D and Ryzen 9 7950X3D is expected to be within 5%, but they are priced at $250 and $130 cheaper than the Core i9-13900K, respectively.
