XanxoGaming has finally finished testing games on the Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor. They are the first to publish independent results. They bought the processor from the retail market in Peru. But they have not disclosed how much it cost them. It will be officially launched at a price of USD 449. This is USD 120 to USD 140 less than the suggested retail price of Core i9-12900K.
During testing, the 5800X3D was compared to the Alder Lake system with the same type of memory as DDR4-3200 CL14. For a high-end system, these are clearly not good enough specs, despite being powered by the Zen3 or Alder Lake architecture. In addition, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition was used for the gaming tests, which means that there is no comparison between different models of GPUs.
Since XanxoGaming runs CPU gaming tests, they use resolutions of 1080p and even 720p. Users are not very likely to use these resolutions, but they are indeed the best way to showcase CPU gaming performance. The tests performed with the 1080p resolution show that both processors appear to be the same. The three games tested are the FFXV, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and The Witcher 3.
Let’s not forget that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is AMD’s last chance to get some users on board before switching to the next-generation AM5 platform. However, it is quite disappointing that AMD will not have SKUs with 3D V-Cache and more than 8 cores. However, for gamers, this could be a good switch for those still on 300/400 series motherboards.
