A peek at the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D’s performance with synthetic, non-gaming workloads has leaked out courtesy of Peru-based hardware site XanxoGaming. The upcoming 8C/16T chip with 3D V-Cache technology scored 1493/15060 (1T/nT) in Cinebench R23, 1639/10498 in Geekbench 5, and 617/6506 in CPU-Z. Here’s how those scores compare to what the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X and Intel Core i7-12900K are listed with on their respective benchmark databases.

XanxoGaming also tested the Ryzen 7 5800X3D in blender, the results of which can be compared against the Ryzen 7 5800X using Wccftech’s chart below. XanxoGaming says that it will be releasing gaming benchmarks for the CPU tomorrow.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Desktop CPU Benchmarks Leak Out, Synthetic Workloads Show Little To No Improvement (Wccftech)

What’s interesting is that the source decided to look at synthetic non-gaming workloads first for a chip that has the most notable gains promised around games. A range of benchmarks including Cinebench R23, Geekbench 5, CPU-z, and Blender was used.

In Cinebench R23, the CPU scored 1493 points in single-core and 15060 points in multi-core tests. Our AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is around 2% faster in multi-threaded and 5% faster in single-threaded performance on the same benchmark. Next up is Geekbench 5 where the chip scored 1639 points in single and 10498 points in multi-core tests. Here, the standard 5800X is 2% faster in single and 12% faster in multi-threaded performance. In CPU-z, the chip scores 617 points in single and 6505 points in multi-core tests. Unsurprisingly, the Ryzen 7 5800X beats the 3D part by 8% & 7% in the respective multi and single-core benchmarks.

In Blender, we can only compare the performance in the BMW scene since that’s the reference test we use in our own testing. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D ends up with a render time of 166 seconds while the standard chip completes the scene in 146 seconds. That’s 20 seconds shaved out without the extra 3D cache. An advantage of 14% for the non-3D part.

Our weekly newsletter includes a recap of our reviews and a run down of the most popular tech news that we published.


  1. Stock 5800X appears to be around 1596 / 14812 in CBR23

    I don't know how much variance is typical in those runs, seems interesting that the 1T goes down, but multicore goes up (very slighly)

    I'm thinking -- leaks are leaks... and wait for legit reviews before deciding anything.
  2. Also wondering if these benchmarks are going to make any real use of the extra cache. AMD was already throwing excessive amounts of cache at the problem to cover the significant increase in latency between the CPU cores and main memory - we might need more complex testing scenarios to really tease out the potential improvements.

    They're good for 'it exists' and 'it turns on' at least, right?
