Ryzen 7 5800X3D is 9% faster than regular Ryzen 7 5800X in Geekbench multi-thread test

The results of the first independent test of the Vermeer X-series Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor with 8 cores and 16 threads have appeared online. The measurements were carried out in Geekbench. Keep in mind that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D has 96MB of cache (32MB L3 and 64MB 3D V-Cache), which is three times more than the regular Ryzen 7 5800X.

Despite the increased amount of cache memory, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D’s base heatpack hasn’t changed and is the same 105 watts. However, the new chip’s base and turbo frequencies are 200 and 400 MHz lower than the standard Ryzen 7 5800X. As AMD said, there just wasn’t room for a higher frequency. The company has previously confirmed that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D does not support manual overclocking.

According to AMD, just increasing the processor’s cache memory significantly increased its gaming performance, making it an average of 15% faster than the 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X model. The synthetic Geekbench test shows a slightly different picture. The processor scored 1,633 points in the single-core test and 11,250 points in the multi-core test. For comparison, the regular Ryzen 7 5800X scores 1,671 and 10,333, respectively, in the same tests. This means that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is only 9% faster than the regular version in the multi-threaded test.
