AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU beats Intel Core i9-12900K in gaming benchmarks despite Alder Lake using high-end DDR5 memory

AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D has been tested against the Intel Core i9-12900K once again and we’ll see if DDR5 is enough to keep Alder Lake in the lead.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D maintains gaming lead in recent benchmarks against Intel Core i9-12900K despite Alder Lake running DDR5-6000 memory

The latest gaming benchmarks for AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D are again released by tech outlet, XanxoGaming. Today is also the day when other media will post their own 5800X3D reviews.

AMD’s Ryzen 5000 desktop CPUs are absolutely stolen right now: Ryzen 9 5950X 16 Core available for $ 539, Ryzen 9 5900X 12 Core as low as $ 394

The previous benchmarks had the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which ran against an Intel Core i9-12900K CPU, but only with DDR4 memory up to 3600 Mbps. The latest benchmarks show us what performance looks like when testing the new 3D V-Cache CPU against Alder Lake with DDR5 memory. For this purpose, a set of DDR5-6000 CL40 memory was used and it gives yet another $ advantage to the red team given the high prices associated with going the DDR5 route on the Z690 platform. Meanwhile, users can simply run their existing DDR4 sets on the AM4 platform, and the CPU upgrade alone will allow much higher performance.

In terms of benchmarks, in addition to Assassin’s Creed Origins, the AMD Ryzen 7 surpassed the 5800X3D or managed to stay on par with the Intel Core i9-12900K (Plus DDR5-6000 memory). This is again an impressive showcase of 3D V-Cache that offers greater performance over Intel’s fastest Alder lake CPU for gaming. Another section where 3D V-Cache really helps is the 1% low, which is much higher than what Intel’s Core i9-12900K produces in the same games.

The Ryzen 7 5800X3D turns out to be a great gaming CPU in terms of price compared to Intel’s flagship, the Core i9-12900K. AMD can have a very disruptive offer as it says its last hurray for the AM4 platform. It will be available for $ 449 US when it hits retail on April 20th.
