up to 5.5% faster than Core i5-12600K

Now it was the same TechPowerUp the one who filtered the examination of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3Dand although this morning we saw that his performance was average, 5% faster than Intel Core i9-12900K processor with DDR4 @ 3200 MHz memory, it can now be seen that using DDR5 @ 6000 MHz CL36 memory, the Intel processor wins almost all tests, even in mid-range models, against an AMD that has now been tested with DDR4 @ 3600 MHz CL16 memory. Of course, the biggest issue is the price of this CPU.

To summarize all the information as much as possible, 720p the Core i9-12900K is 0.9% faster, while the Core i9-12900KS is 2.8% faster; at 1080pthis difference is reduced to 0.1 and 0.7%, respectively; at 2K the Ryzen 7 5800X3D exceeds 12900K by 0.3% and remains within 0.1% of the Core i9-12900K, while at 4Kwe are talking about a difference of 1 and 1.1%.

Perhaps the most interesting thing here is to see to Intel Core i5-12600Kprocessor that costs $259 (compared to $459). Although there is a noticeable price difference, at 720p We’re talking about the AMD processor being 5.5% faster; at 1080p is 3.8% faster, at 2K Intel’s CPU is already winning by a margin of 2.9% already 4K this improvement is reduced to 0.6%. So, if we’re talking about a CPU specifically for gaming, this mid-range Intel processor is a much better option, as it offers a lot more performance for every dollar invested. We are talking about an additional cost of 77% for a maximum improvement of 5.5% in an “unrealistic” test (no one is going to play at 720p).

if we talk return per euro investedthe Ryzen 7 5800X3D is one of the worst processors on the marketsince each FPS costs 31.8% more than the Ryzen 7 5800X itself. As a reference, the Core i5-12600K gives us 65% more performance per dollar invested, the Core i5-12400F gives us 110.3% plus and the Core i3-12100F is the king of low-cost gaming processors with a with 177.8%.

In fact, the real problem with this AMD processor is that it’s too lateand did at a disproportionate price Seeing all that data on the table, this is a gaming-only CPU, and a simple Core i5-12600K is a better option.

“Overall, I really like what AMD has done with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. The technology is awesome. The problem is that the processor is quite expensive. According to AMD, it will cost $450, which is $100 more than the Ryzen 7 5800X, which is already a very capable gaming machine and a better choice for gaming than the 5900X due to its single CCD design. Strong competition comes from Intel’s Core i7-12700K ($385), and even the i5-12600K will deliver good gaming performance for $260.”

The beauty of caching is that not everything is cached; rather, sophisticated algorithms decide what to put in the cache, how long to keep there, and what data to fetch later when more capacity is needed. Having greater overall caching capacity means that some workloads can now fit entirely in cache and will run as if they have near infinite memory bandwidth. Of course, this highly depends on the application: most rendering workloads can already fit in the cache of most processorsLike the old games. If a workload constantly needs new data, that is, no data is reused, caching has little effect. That’s why it’s so exciting to test AMD’s new processor in a wide variety of workloads: we’ve got 38 apps plus 10 games, more than most publications.

On the average of our app test suite, Ryzen 7 5800X3D lags 3% behind original Ryzen 7 5800X because the 5800X3D operates at lower frequencies than its sibling. AMD has confirmed that the 3D V-Cache array is limited to a maximum operating voltage of 1.35V, a limit that applies to the entire processor due to the way power is directed to the processor , including computing cores. Since the Zen3 requires 1.5V and above to reach the highest Turbo frequencies, AMD had to lower the core frequencies a bit to ensure stability at all times.

If we look at the individual test results, the highlight is definitely WinRAR. This app seems to really like the cache while working with all that compressed data – the performance increase is 30%. While more impressive cases of this type can certainly be found if you search and select, our current suite of CPU application benchmarks strongly suggests that for applications, the similarly priced Ryzen 9 5900X is simply the better option due to its greater number of nuclei. The Core i7-12700K from Intel (or KF) is considerably cheaper than the 5800X3D and offers 14% better application performance. Older Intel processors need not apply as the 5800X3D is even faster than the Core i9-11900K and Core i9-10900K.
