“It’s time for another ZEN3 review, this round is something extra especially for PC gamers. It’s the much-discussed Ryzen 7 5800X3D. The CPU, which is on many people’s radar, features eight cores and sixteen threads but is coupled with a large 96MB L3 cache, which would boost performance for games, regaining AMD’s advantage over Intel’s Alder Lake processors such as the 12900K. One of the new Ryzen chip’s primary advantages is the addition of 3D V-cache memory. For example, the nice Intel Core i7-12700K has 25MB of L3 cache, the new Ryzen CPU now offers 96MB L3 cache (!). This will enable the Ryzen 7 5800X3D to perform substantially better in gaming. According to AMD’s internal testing, the new Ryzen 7 5800X3D appears to run at the same level as the Intel Core i9-12900K, so that’s going to be our baseline for this review.”
