The review embargo for the new AMD Zen 4 CPUs with 3D V-Cache will be lifted on February 27th. However, the first gaming benchmarks for the flagship model, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D, have appeared online.
On one hand, we have some first-party official gaming benchmarks, coming directly from AMD. AMD claims that the Ryzen 9 7950X3D will be 6% faster on average than the Intel i9 13900K at 1080p. The red team also claims that this CPU will be 16% faster than the Ryzen 9 7950X. The slides are courtesy of HDTecnologia.
Then, chii11eddog leaked some third-party gaming benchmarks. Four games were used for these benchmarks, using an NVIDIA RTX3090. In those tests, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D was 12% faster than the Intel Core i9 13900K.
From the looks of it, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D will be able to beat Intel’s CPU in most gaming benchmarks. Still, there were some games in which the Intel Core i9 13900K was faster than the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D.
It will also be interesting to see the performance of the AMD Ryzen 9 7800X3D. This particular CPU will have a single 8-core CCD and won’t rely on CCX scheduling. So, in theory, it may be the better option for gaming.
Stay tuned for more!
