The Ryzen 7 7800X3D is finally releasing soon, and while early adopters should be able to get their hands on AMD’s latest Zen 4 CPU with 3D V-Cache in just a few days, an official slide has leaked out that teases how the chip might compare with one of Intel’s Raptor Lake flagships in some of today’s more popular games. According to the official slide with first-party benchmarks titled “better than the competition’s high end,” the Ryzen 7 7800X3D will feature 7% faster gaming performance on average than the 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900K, a CPU with hybrid architecture that can be purchased for as low as $499.99 at the time of this posting. The AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D will be available beginning Thursday, April 6, for $449, while the Ryzen 9 7950X3D and Ryzen 9 7900X3D are now available for $699 and $599, respectively.

From a VideoCardz report:

There is another set of AMD’s own benchmarks, shared as part of the 7800X3D review kit. This is still a first-party benchmark, so nothing even remotely comparable to independent testing, yet this is the best thing we have before those tests are published.

It shows Ryzen 7 7800X3D and Core i9-13900K in head-to-head comparison in gaming. This time the claim is that the highest performance gain is 30% in a game like Horizon Zero Dawn, but the average figure is now much lower. A number that we got from 21 games tested at 1080p resolution with high settings is 6.9%. Just bear in mind that each title presented here is with ‘up to’ numbers so that the average could be even lower.
