Official AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D Benchmarks Leak Out, 16% Faster Than the 7950X in Gaming
Just now, hd-tecnologia has shared some benchmarks of AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 9 7950X3D. This is a major leak as this is probably the first source to share some actual in-game performance metrics. The benchmarks are said to be official test results from AMD.
Ryzen 9 7950X3D Benchmarked
The source claims that AMD has finally started to deliver review guides to benchmark these CPUs. The test setups for both the Intel and AMD counterparts can be seen below. The results you see will be based on these setups which feature both the 13900K alongside the 7950X3D. Memory-wise, we are seeing DDR5-6000 RAM and the NZXT Kraken X63 CPU Cooler to ensure that no thermal throttling occurs.
The Intel test bench makes use of the ROG STRIX Z790-E GAMING WIFI motherboard. Whereas, the other test bench includes an AMD Reference AM5 motherboard. All games will be tested at 1080p so that we don’t encounter a GPU bottleneck.
First up, at 1080p, across a wide variety of games, the 7950X3D pulls ahead of the 13900K by 6%. That is a respectable performance lead, however, a few titles do not take much advantage of the extra V-Cache, namely AoTS, Far Cry 6, etc.
AMD decided to compare this CPU against its own Ryzen 9 7950X, using the RTX 4090. On average, we are seeing a healthy lead of ~16% over the Ryzen 9 7950X. That is a huge bump in performance, but e-sports titles like CS:GO seem to not benefit much from the 7950X3D’s extra cache. Then again, 850 FPS isn’t something anyone would complain about.
Moving over to more synthetic workloads, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D surprisingly is faster than the i9-13900K. There are a few tests where Intel’s 13900K takes the lead, however, that’s due to the higher core count. If you’re more interested in multi-core performance, Intel seems to be the way to go.
The test results you saw above were from AMD themselves. It is still advised to wait for the official reviews, however, this in itself is a major leak. On paper, the 7950X3D is a much better option, but how good are the other X3D CPUs, like the 7900X3D? Guess only time will tell.
