AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D beats the Core i9 12900K in gaming benchmarks

The launch of AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D is imminent. Chips are out in the wild, and early reviews and benchmarks are popping up online. Given that AMD has proclaimed the 5800X3D’s gaming capabilities, we’ve been waiting to see if that claim holds true. And it seems it does.

The Peruvian hardware site Xanxo Gaming (via 3DCenter) managed to grab a retailer of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D and put it through a comprehensive suite of benchmarks, comparing it to the Intel Core i9 12900KF. As the site was not sampled by AMD, it is not subject to an embargo.
