Even more benchmarks of the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D 3D V-Cache CPU benchmarks have been leaked that show a 35% improvement over the 13900K.
AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D 3D V-Cache CPU Up To 35% Faster Than Core i9-13900K In Gaming Benchmarks
Yesterday, we got to see the official gaming performance benchmarks of the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D 3D V-Cache CPU leak out. It seems like the chip offers a 6% average improvement compared to Intel's Core i9-13900K across various titles at 1080p resolution. Now, the latest benchmarks have leaked out which come from a 3rd party source and it looks like we might witness an even larger performance increase in the final retail samples.
The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D is the flagship & the first 16-core CPU to feature 3D V-Cache technology. The chip will incorporate a total of 32 threads, a total of 144 MB cache (64 MB CCD, 64 MB V-Cache + 16 MB L2), and a TDP of 120W. As for the clocks, the chip is rated at a base clock of 4.2 GHz which is 300 MHz slower than the standard 7950X but boost clocks are rated at the same 5.7 GHz. This should give us a hint at why the TDP is 50W lower versus the Non-3D part.
For testing, a total of five games were used in which the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D is compared to the Ryzen 9 7950X and the Core i9-13900K. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card was used and all five titles were tested at 1080p resolution.
We also get a Cinebench R23 benchmark of the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D which scores 37,973 points in the multi-threaded test. This is close to a 5% performance decrease over the standard Ryzen 9 7950X CPU. The AMD Ryzen Master software is also open which shows the 89C temperature limit but there's no mention of what DDR5 memory kit was used for this particular test.
Starting with Assassins Creed Valhalla, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D CPU delivers a 35% performance increase over the 13900K and an almost 40% increase over the Ryzen 9 7950X.
In Far Cry 5, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D CPU ends up 12% faster than the 13900K and 32% faster than the Ryzen 9 7950X. In Shadow of The Tomb Raider, we see an 11% and 16% improvement at the highest detail level. In Metro Exodus (Extreme settings), we see a 5% and 4% performance uplift while Star Control (Great settings) delivers similar performance across all three chips. The scores are as follows:
AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D vs Core i9-13900K CPU (1080P Gaming):
- Assassins Creed Valhalla (Ultra): +35% Faster
- Far Cry 5 (Ultra): +12% Faster
- Shadow of The Tomb Raider (Highest): +11% Faster
- Metro Exodus (Extreme): +5% Faster
- Star Control (Great): -2% Slower
- Average: +12% Faster
AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D vs Ryzen 9 7950X CPU (1080P Gaming):
- Assassins Creed Valhalla (Ultra): +39% Faster
- Far Cry 5 (Ultra): +32% Faster
- Shadow of The Tomb Raider (Highest): +16% Faster
- Metro Exodus (Extreme): +4% Faster
- Star Control (Great): +1% Slower
- Average: +18.4% Faster
With that said, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D will retail at $700 US which is much more expensive than the Intel Core i9-13900K CPU which can be found for as low as $529 US. That's a 30% higher price for a 6% higher gaming performance and similar workload performance.
The Ryzen 9 7950X3D may be a tough choice for gamers but that's why AMD will also offer the Ryzen 9 7900X and the Ryzen 7 7800X at much lower price points. The Ryzen 7 7800X is definitely going to be the best 3D chip for gamers due to its more affordable price point that matches its predecessor, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, at $449 US. Gamers will however have to wait till the 6th of April to get their hands on it.
