AMD claims Ryzen 7 78003XD to be 24% faster than Intel’s Core i9-13900K

AMD has finally revealed the highly anticipated Ryzen 7 7800X3D's gaming performance numbers by lifting the veil on the processor. The outcomes meet expectations. The 7800X3D totally outperforms both the Ryzen 7 5800X3D and its archrival, the Core i9-13900K, in two new official AMD slides that have been made public. showing up to a 30% advantage over the 5800X3D and a 24% improvement in gaming performance when compared to the 13900K.


The $699 Ryzen 9 7950X3D, AMD's flagship 3D V-Cache-powered processor, has already been well acclaimed and has been named the best CPU for gaming while holding a dominant position on our hierarchy of CPU performance. The $599 Ryzen 9 7900X3D was likewise quietly introduced by the firm without any sample press.

The much anticipated $449 Ryzen 7 7800X3D, which costs $150 less than Intel's flagship $589 Core i9-13900K, beats Intel in most games by an average of 20% and as much as 24%. AMD has now revealed its own official gaming scores. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D and Ryzen 9 7950X3D are only marginally compared in the new benchmarks, suggesting that the cheaper CPU provides virtually the same level of gaming performance as the more expensive flagship, albeit for $250 less.


Nevertheless, AMD delayed the $449 eight-core Ryzen 7 7800X3D chip's release until April and was sparing with benchmarks, only comparing it to the Ryzen 7 5800X3D from the previous generation in gaming rather than the significantly more relevant Core i9-13900K and Ryzen 9 7950X3D.

The 78000X3D will, in the opinion of AMD representatives, provide the majority of 3D V-gaming Cache's performance at a significantly lower cost than the other X3D models. However, once the 7800X3D is out, there won't be many reasons to purchase the more expensive models if the 7800X3D provides almost the same level of gaming performance for $250 less than the flagship.

As with any vendor-provided benchmarks, use caution when interpreting these results. (We've included the test notes below with the test setup particulars, but the '5' footnote doesn't list the 13900K information; those are in the '2' footnote).


The bottom half of the graph, which contrasts the Ryzen 7 7800X3D and Ryzen 7 5800X3D, has been seen before. With four gaming benchmarks against the Core i9-13900K, the top half is new.

The Ryzen 7 7800X3D features a single chiplet and will function more like a standard CPU, while the 12-core and 16-core Ryzen 7000X3D introduce 3D V-Cache technology to AMD's multi-compute-chiplet CPUs for the first time (deep dive here). Although the 7800X3D will have a more straightforward plug-and-play implementation.
