After the first gaming test last week, Peruvian Xanxo Gaming extensively tested the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D across a range of games. The new octacore gets the Intel Core i9-12900KF in 11 different titles in both 1080p and 720p. Both systems are paired with an RTX 3080 Ti and 32GB of DDR4 memory at 3,200 MT/s.
In six of the eleven games, both CPUs perform almost equally, while the 5800X3D is faster in the other five games. In Death Stranding and Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, the Ryzen sku gains about 5% more fps, increasing to a 29% difference in favor of the 5800X3D in Final Fantasy XV. Also, the AMD chip is faster (10 and 22 percent) in Shadow of the Tomb Raider and The Witcher 3.
The 5800X3D averaged 6.19% faster than the 12900KF in 11 games tested at 1080p.
As expected, the difference is larger at 720p, but using the RTX 3080 Ti is not exactly realistic at this resolution. The 5800X3D’s additional L3 cache gives an average of 12% increase, with FFXV and The Witcher 3 being strong outliers (+40 and 46%). According to Xanxo, it is notable that the i9-12900KF is 5% faster in the Strange Brigade. instruction per hour (ipc) from Alder Lake-S.
Other 720p tests can be found at Xanxo Gaming (link).
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D will launch on April 20 with a suggested retail price of $449 or €500 including VAT. This is a nice difference compared to the 12900KF, which is currently changing hands at 589 euros. It looks like AMD will combine strong performance with a relatively attractive price tag.
