AMD’s Latest Benchmarks: Ryzen 7 7800X3D vs. Core i9-13900K in Gaming

At this year’s CES 2023, AMD unveiled a multitude of new products, among which the most eye-catching were the Ryzen 7000X3D series processors featuring 3D Vertical Cache (3D V-Cache) technology. Unlike the previous generation, which offered only the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, AMD has now launched the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and Ryzen 7 7800X3D, all with an additional 64MB of L3 cache and a TDP of 120W.

The Ryzen 9 7950X3D and Ryzen 9 7900X3D are already available for purchase, while the Ryzen 7 7800X3D will hit the market on April 6th. AMD previously shared the gaming performance of the Ryzen 7 7800X3D for the first time, comparing it with Intel’s Core i9-13900K and the previous generation Ryzen 7 5800X3D. In four games, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D led the former by a margin of 13% to 24% and the latter by 21% to 30%.

Previous data had significant limitations and did not adequately represent the Ryzen 7 7800X3D’s gaming performance. According to VideoCardz, another AMD presentation provided additional gaming data for the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, still compared with the Core i9-13900K.
