First tests of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D


The first performance tests of an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D arrive…from Peru. The processor was tested on a Gigabyte AORUS Master X570 motherboard with the F36C bios version, which is optimized for this new AMD reference. For testing purposes, the full configuration includes 16 GB of DDR4 RAM at 3200 MHz, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, an Arctic Liquid Freezer II 360 AIO and the use of Windows 10 to avoid any problems.

Ryzen 7 5800X3D: a disappointment?

The first feedback is in CPU-Z. The 5800X3D achieves a single-core performance of 617 points against 831 points to the Intel Core i9-12900K. Regarding the multicore performance, we get 6505.6 points compared to 11,440 points for the same 12900K.

tests 5800X3D In Geekbench 5, we get 1639 points in single-core and 10498 points in multi-core against + 2000 /+ 20000 points that the Intel processor usually moves. In this benchmark, the cache is useless, as the performance is almost identical to Ryzen 7 5800X. Let’s move on to Cinebench R23. The new AMD gets a single-core performance of 1493 points and a multi-core performance of 15060 points. Here again, the Core i9-12900K is far ahead hovering around 2000/27400 points. For now, in all synthetic benchmarks, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is not convincing, even if AMD’s target remains gaming where its cache should bring something. The gaming tests should arrive in the next few hours and will show if AMD really kept its word when it announced that it would offer the best gaming processor on the market. However, on this first round of tests, to be honest we would have appreciated if the tester had also compared with an i7-12700K.
