It’s been a long time coming but we already have more leaks on the performance of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D in games. This processor was tested with 32GB of RAM (4x 8GB) @ 3200MHz CL14 alongside an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, using a 360mm AIO water cooler, and using the CPU system. Windows 10 operation. All of these specifications are maintained for the Intel Core i9-12900KF with which its performance is compared.
If we focus in 1080p resolutionwhich is the most popular for gaming, and we take the average of the performance of the 11 games, we know that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D offered a performance of 214.72fpswhile the Core i9-12900KF offered 203.36FPSso we’re talking about a difference in performance 5.5%mainly thanks to games like Final Fantasy XV which inflates CPU data on AMD by nearly 50 additional FPS (+29.16% performance), or The Witcher 3 (46 FPS).
At a resolution of 720p, we are talking about an average of 256.18 frames per second for Ryzen 7 and above 234.54 frames per second on the Core i9, so we talked about a performance difference of 9.2%. Values lower than expected.
Now, of course, we have to keep in mind that the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D will go on sale for $449while this Intel Core i9-12900KF costs $589.95so we are talking about a further improvement in real performance (1080p) 5.5% on average costing 31% less than its rival, although of course this rival has twice as many cores and although it does well in games, outside of games, in content creation, we are already talking about a noticeable difference in performance, so everything depends on each user, not to mention that this CPU arrives very late, since it is expected that in 5 months we will start to see the new generation of CPUsit will therefore also depend on the urgency of renewing the processor or waiting for the switch to a completely new platform, which also entails an additional cost.
