“Last week early results for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D have been posted by XanxoGaming. Now more results have been posted.
The results you see have been posted by them, yet did not fall under embargo, as he got his sample through another party. They were able to get the processor on the open market, but they didn’t say how much it cost in Peru (where it was bought). It will be available for purchase for $449 USD, which is about 120 to 140 USD less than the Core i9-12900K MSRP for 1,000 units.
The website pitted the 5800X3D against an Alder Lake machine with the identical DDR4-3200 CL14 memory type. Those are certainly not ideal specifications for a high-end machine, regardless of whether it’s based on the Zen3 or Alder Lake architecture, but they’re constant across tests. Furthermore, gaming testing are conducted with the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition, eliminating the need for comparisons across multiple GPU versions. XanxoGaming is performing a CPU gaming test, hence 1080p or even 720p resolutions are employed. Such resolutions are unlikely to be used by end users, but they are the greatest method to illustrate CPU gaming capability.”
