AMD’s new Ryzen processors are said to all be released in April, and new information has come to light in the form of a benchmark from Geekbench. According to Videocardz, the 5800X3D is up to 9% faster than the 5800X in multi-core performance. This is the first-ever independent benchmark we’re seeing that features the brand new 5800X3D and its 3D v-cache.
We’ll have to wait a few weeks before we see any third parties publishing benchmark results, But AMD in its keynote officially stated that the 5800X3D will be around 15% faster in games than the 5900X. We stated this was a bold claim and we still think so, with the Geekbench results stating that the 5800X3D managed a 9% uplift over the 5800X.
The fact that worries us is that the 5900X is around 5% faster on average than the 5800X. That Means it’s highly unlikely that the 5800X3D is going to hit the 15% uplift over the 5900X, but only time will tell, maybe the post-launch tweaks will get it up to scratch. We do think this uplift is impressive regardless of whether or not the 5800X3D meets AMD’s claims, especially since the 5800X3D features lower clock speeds.
The 5800X is an 8 core 16 thread Zen 3 based CPU, possibly one of the last ones to release onto the AM4 platform. It features 96MB of cache (three times more than the 5800X) and 64MB of this is the all-new 3D V-cache. The 5800X3D will retain the same 105W TDP but with 200MHz – 400MHz slower clock speeds. And the 5800X3D will NOT support overclocking in the traditional sense.
The full specs of the 5800X3D are as follows:
- Cores: 8
- Base clock speed: 3.4GHz
- Max boost speed: 4.5GHz
- Total L1 cache: 512KB
- Total L2 cache: 4MB
- Total L3 cache: 96MB
- Default TDP 105W
- TSMC 7nm FinFET
- Socket: AM4
- Memory type: DDR4
Despite the 5800X3D potentially not meeting expectations, it’s an important piece of PC history in the making. It’s potentially the very last AM4 based CPU to ever release. The numbers do show, however, that it’s a very good upgrade option for those stuck on an older generation of CPU, especially if you’re going to be able to get one for the retail price of $449 (without VAT), as like this Dutch store ‘2Compute’ listing suggests.
