The new AMD gaming processor has only recently received a release date , but has already been tested in a popular benchmark. Compared to the base model, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D really turned out to be a more productive CPU – but with a small caveat.
According to early (and unofficial) Geekbench test results , the novelty outperforms its base version by 9% in a multi-threaded discipline, but is inferior to it when loaded on a single core. The first is explained by the significantly increased amount of cache memory placed on a separate chip, the second is due to the lower clock frequency of the new product.
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D has 8 physical cores and 16 threads of execution, 96MB cache and 105W TDP. According to the company, in gaming scenarios, the chip should perform better than in “synthetics”. AMD also confirmed that the new product will not support overclocking in any form due to the technological limitations of its architecture.
The suggested retail price for the processor, which will go on sale April 20, is $449. However, some European retailers are already listing it on virtual shelves for €503.
