AMD has revealed the official benchmarks of the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, which it claims will be the ideal processor for gamers. The chipmaker has only shared a handful of scores from partner titles, so it’s better to take them with a grain of salt. The benchmarks include Red Dead Redemption 2, Total War, and Horizon Zero Dawn. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D was compared against the Intel Core i9-13900K and its predecessor, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
Considering its sub-$500 price point, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D is looking to be a solid gaming CPU. It beats the more expensive Intel Core i9-13900K ($579) by up to 24% in cherry-picked titles. Seeing how the Ryzen 9 7950X3D performs, we don’t expect the same sort of gains on average. In most cases, the deltas won’t exceed 5%, with the overall average being even less.
AMD compares the Ryzen 7 7800X3D and the 5800X3D in a different set of benchmarks. In this case, we see popular eSports titles like CS: GO and DOTA 2. The Zen 4 3D chip performs admirably, beating its predecessor by up to 30%.
In content creation workloads, the Core i9-13900K should be notably faster than the Ryzen 7 7800X3D because of its higher core count. It is slated to hit the retail market on the 6th of April.
