AMD Ryzen has released its official benchmarks for the 7800X3D, which will be available in April. With fewer cores, this chip is expected to offer a better price-to-performance ratio than the 7900X3D and 7950X3D, and AMD has finally released some benchmarks to confirm that.
Up to 24% faster than the i9-13900K
The 7800X3D starts at $449, which is about $150 less than the i9-13900K, so this chip is a real bargain, especially when compared to the more expensive Ryzen 9 X3D chips, which are the same or higher. i9-13900K. Previously, AMD only compared it to the 5800X3D, but Tom’s got benchmarks comparing the hardware to the i9-13900K, which is up to 24% faster in gaming.
Both chips were tested in four games at 1080p in the benchmarks shown. Rainbow Six Siege, Total War: Three Kingdoms, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Horizon Zero ‘Down’ are all available now. It’s a shame they didn’t put Horizon Zero Dawn through its paces. With these four benchmarks, the AMD has a healthy lead over the 13900k, up to 23% and 24% in Red Dead and Horizon Zero ‘Dawn’ respectively. It’s only four games, but they’re clearly chosen to make this chip look good. We’ll have to wait for reviewers to come back to see the big picture.
At $449, if you’re looking for a value upload to the high end, the 7800X3D is less expensive and faster than the 13900k. What about 5800X3D owners? They may also be tempted to update, so AMD has provided some benchmarks for those as well.
Up to 30% faster than 5800X3D
Again, the AMD Ryzen 5800X3D was right on top of the 7800X3D in four games, all of which were spelled out thanks to: Rainbow Six Siege, Warhammer: Dawn of War III, CS: GO and DOTA 2. The 5800X3D gained more than 20%. Of all titles, up to 30% of DOTA 2, these results are unlikely to convince me to upload if I’m a 5800X3D owner.
The chip’s move to AM5 seems surprising, especially when compared to the more expensive Ryzen 9 X3D chips. We won’t be sure if the Ryzen 9 7800X3D is a good choice until we see proper reviews and more thorough testing.
