AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Put Through Rendering and Synthetic Benchmarks

Peru-based tech site XanxoGaming has put what it claims to be a retail version of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D through a series of benchmarks (via VideoCardz). Sadly, for those eyeing the potential of the 5800X3D for gaming, no PC games were tested with the newly built system - just rendering and sys-info tool type standards.

At the official unveiling of the 5800X3D in mid-March, AMD gave us the specs, pricing, and release date. Additionally, to build anticipation, it highlighted the PC gaming prowess of the upcoming 3D V-Cache infused processor. In a selection of modern games and older favorites, AMD's charts showed the new Ryzen 7 5800X3D was 15% better than the 5900X, wresting the upper hand from the Intel Core i9-12900K. 

So, it isn't easy to fathom why Xanxo should rush to release a review featuring the following; Cinebench, Geekbench, CPU-Z, and Blender. Perhaps it was just the quickest and easiest option. However, the site promises to add gaming benchmarks to its review shortly (it is working on them now).

The 5800X3D was tested on a Gigabyte AORUS Master X570 motherboard with F36C BIOS with 5800X3D optimizations, 16GB DDR4-3200, with GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU, using Windows 10.

Above is a selection of the benchmarking screenshots from the source, showing that the upcoming 3D V-Cache packing CPU is only about as fast as the Ryzen 7 5700X in many single- and multi-core tests. We reckon this is due to the lower clocks of the upcoming chip. However, when the V-cache comes into play in certain apps, like the rendering tasks in Blender, we see the Ryzen 7 5800X3D outpace the standard Ryzen 7 5800X by up to 11%.

Key confirmed specs of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D are available on the official AMD product pages. In brief, it is a Zen3 architecture 8C/16T CPU with a base/boost of 3.4 / 4.5 GHz, and a hefty L3 cache of 96MB. This 7nm processor has a TDP of 105W. Since the product launch we have learned that it is not overclockable.

AMD explained that the 3D V-Cache is sensitive to higher voltages, and has thus roped off core voltage tweaking and user CPU frequency adjustments. Memory and fabric overclocking remain enabled. All the motherboard vendors are preparing BIOS updates for full support of the new chip and some, like Gigabyte, seem to suggest they have implemented changes for AMD's new "V-Cache optimizer."

The official release of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D is scheduled for April 20, a little under a fortnight from today. AMD says the new AM4 CPU has an MSRP of $449.

    Off-topic: the name of the review site/group is a play on words for "chancho", which means "pig". That will explain their logo.

    On-topic: well, expected for the most part. Can the regular 5800X close the gap with PBO? I think that's the real important question to answer here. I'm pretty sure it'll be a close call and make the 5800X3D look kind of dumb. But let's wait and see!

    Regards.

    I am sorry, the 5800X3D is still looking like a lamb! Only a fool will pay $445 for it.

    If you are already on am4 but have a x470/x570 mobo and a 2000 or 3000 CPU and all you do is game, it may be a good option if you do not plan to build again for years.

    If you are interested in benchmarks of software other than PC games leveraging the L3 cache while waiting for the end of the embargo, you can read: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=amd-epyc-7773x-linux.

    It will lose to 5800x in some and win in some. So it depends on what you do with your PC...
    For me both 5800x and 5800x3d both would be upgrades... so interesting to see what cpu suits better to my user case!

    I'd like to see all testing done with 3600Mhz RAM across the board

    Or better yet cl14 3600 or this.

    Based on early benchmarks thus far it seems plausible that an overclocked 5800x would be equal to or better than a 5800X3D, but until we get some FPS benches across a wide range of games it's still just a guess. Either way, the cost seems really hard to justify for what seems like a minor bump in performance.

    The regular 5800X even without PBO should be faster at most things outside of gaming and the occasional app that can benefit from the extra cache.

    the entire chip is built around "the occasional app that can benefit from the extra cache".
