Gaming Performance: 720p and Lower
All of our game testing results, including other resolutions, can be found in our benchmark database: www.anandtech.com/bench. All gaming tests were with an RTX 2080 Ti.
For our gaming tests in this review, we re-benched the Ryzen 7 5800X processor to compare it directly against the newer Ryzen 7 5800X3D on Windows 11. All previous Ryzen 5000 processor were tested on Windows 10, while all of our Intel Alder Lake (12th Gen Core Series) testing was done on Windows 11.
We are using DDR4 memory at the following settings:
Final Fantasy 14
Final Fantasy 15
World of Tanks
Far Cry 5
Grand Theft Auto V
Red Dead Redemption 2
Strange Brigade (DirectX 12)
Strange Brigade (Vulcan)
At 720p resolutions and lower, we are significantly (and intentionally) CPU limited. All of which gives the Ryzen 7 5800X3D and its 3D-Vache the chance to shine.
The addition of 3D V-Cache to one of AMD's mid-range chips makes the Ryzen 7 5800X3D a much more potent option in gaming, with much better performance consistently than the Ryzen 7 5800X. This is very much a best-case scenario for AMD, and as we'll see, won't be as applicable to more real-world results (where being GPU limited is more common). But it underscores why AMD is positioning the chip as a gaming chip: because many of these workloads do benefit from the extra cache (when they aren't being held-back elsewhere).
In any case, the 5800X3D compares favorably to its more direct competition, the Intel Core i9-12900K and Ryzen 9 5950X (which are both more expensive options). In AMD partnered titles, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D does extremely well.

Silver5urfer - Friday, July 1, 2022 - linkSure 15% more marketing BS eh ? Here's one which shows 8% tops. Also TPU scores all are over the place, when I checked 11900K review of 10900K benches and then in 12900K benches. Still it's some metric to use. Also go and check out Tomshardware that I mentioned in the last page. There's not even 10% difference you say 15% this type of BS is really annoying.
Khanan - Friday, July 1, 2022 - linkIt depends on the games, sure. Still your response was nonsense, the 5800X3D is far better for gaming than the 5900X, those extra cores are completely useless to gamers.
hfm - Friday, July 1, 2022 - link100% true. My 3080 is still the bottleneck more often than not, not my 5600X. Unless you're competing at esports or playing a game that is actually CPU bottlenecked, for most people a 5600X is still more than enough. Both the 5800X3D and 5900X are still enthusiast level or if you know you need it for productivity where time == money.
Khanan - Friday, July 1, 2022 - linkToo bad that it’s over 20% faster than the 5800X in this review: https://cdn.mos.cms.futurecdn.net/uJUYKcHoYUmhoUw5... Generally AMD doesn’t lie, the 15% estimation is correct.

hMunster - Thursday, June 30, 2022 - link[META] Could you please NOT include auto-playing videos on all pages? When I'm sitting in a park, my laptop tethered to my mobile phone for internet access, the last thing that I need is something that drains my battery and my data plan!
nandnandnand - Thursday, June 30, 2022 - linkYou should install AdblockPlus or something.
Khanan - Friday, July 1, 2022 - linkNah, he is right.
hfm - Friday, July 1, 2022 - linkIt would be nice to be able to give them the ad revenue without it being an egregious overstepping of bounds.
Silma - Thursday, June 30, 2022 - linkIt would be useful to factor in energy costs, perhaps over 3 years. Pretty sure AMD's offering will destroy Intel's one.
Also please don't stop at listing processors TDP, but show a more realistic number.
