The Ryzen 7 7800X3D won’t be available for purchase until next month, but AMD’s own benchmarks for its third Ryzen 7000 Series CPU with 3D V-Cache have leaked out, giving an idea of how the chip might compare with Intel’s standard Raptor Lake flagship. According to a set of 1080p gaming performance benchmarks from AMD, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D is up to 24% faster than the 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900K in select games that include Horizon Zero Dawn, while another teases how the processor should compare with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, implying gains of 30% for titles that include DOTA 2. AMD has confirmed that the Ryzen 7 7800X3D will be available for purchase on April 6 for $449.
From a Tom’s Hardware report:
AMD claims the Ryzen 7 7800X3D is 20% faster, on average, in gaming than the Core i9-13900K across these gaming benchmarks. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D carves out a 24% win in Horizon Zero Dawn, a 23% win in Red Dead Redemption 2, an 18% win in Total War: Three Kingdoms, and a 13% win in Rainbow Six Siege.
This is a limited selection of games, and they tend to be the types of titles that benefit from the gaming benefits of the 3D V-Cache, whereas some games don’t benefit quite as much. Conversely, some other games benefit from the tech far more, so this list isn’t entirely skewed.
