After yesterday we told you about the results in the benchmarks, today it is the turn of the performance of the games in the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D and honestly the results that have been obtained are, as we expected, they have been much better than in benchmarks. Up to what point? Well, let’s say that we have been surprised and very pleasantly. Let’s see why?
Yesterday the first performance tests on the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D were leaked, the problem? There are benchmarks that cannot take advantage of V-Cache and if we add to that a lower clock speed than the 5800X, because the results end up being worse. However, the observations in the benchmarks that are based on RAM access told us otherwise and we were hopeful to see the results in real applications.
And it is that in the background almost all of the applications of our PC work in RAM memory. And if there is a quintessential type of application that at a domestic level demands more from a processor above all others, these are PC video games. That is why they have tested the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D in games and the results have been better than expected.
Judo strike from AMD to Intel, the 5800X3D beats the i9-12900KS in gaming!
While the most enthusiasts await the launch of the Ryzen 7000 based on the Zen 4 architecture, the reality for AMD is found in the third generation Zen, which has met two generations of Intel Core since its launch. The answer to the Intel Core 12? Well, AMD has launched a single processor, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which with its 96 MB L3, thanks to V-Cache, is able to increase, according to its creators, the average performance by 15%.
Of course, words need real demonstrations and this is what has been done. And it has been measured Ryzen 7 5800X3D performance in gamesspecifically it has been taken to the game Shadow of the Tomb Raider as a benchmark for performance in a comparison with the i9-12900K and the i9-12900KS. However, the hardware on which the game has been tested has been different, as Intel systems have used memory DDR5-4800while with the one from AMD they have done it with DDR4-3200 memory. The graphics card used? A RTX 3090Ti in the case of the Core 12. In the case of AMD? An RTX 3080Ti.
The test results? Well, at first glance, the Intel processors should win, but placing the game at a resolution of 720P so that the graphics influence the performance as little as possible. That is, forcing an underuse of both NVIDIA beasts. What has been obtained is a 231 FPS result for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D compared to the 190fps and the 200fps of the i9-12900 and i9-12900KS respectively. In any case, we cannot trust a single sample and we have to see how the AMD processor performs in the rest of the games.
