AMD 7800X3D ‘only slightly behind’ 7950X3D

AMD released a new slide for tomorrow’s Ryzen 7 7800X3D review launch.

This is the last first-party benchmark we are covering before AMD lifts the embargo on Ryzen 7 7800X3D reviews tomorrow. We have already seen multiple claims from AMD on 7800X3D performance comparing different CPUs, such as Core i9-13900K or last-gen 5800X3D. However, many enthusiasts will be making a choice between the 7000X3D series directly.

Should gamers invest in the 16 core 12 core Ryzen 9 7000X3D series, or is the 7800X3D enough for them? It looks like gamers may settle with the 8-core CPU as the performance difference between the flagship SKU and the upcoming 7800X3D model is minimal. The official slide shows that the 7800X3D offers 92% to 113% performance of the 7950X3D. Officially it is ‘only slightly behind’ in gaming at 1080p (high setting).

The gap between both SKUs is small, but nothing should stop gamers from unlocking the full potential of the X3D processor with further optimizations. The Ryzen 7 7800XD can benefit from faster memory or various settings available with Precision Boost Overdrive, as the leak from MSI has shown. Sadly, the 7800X3D does not support overclocking in a traditional form, so this is as far as optimizations go.

AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D is the upcoming Zen4 desktop CPU with 104MB of combined L2 and L3 cache. This is a third X3D SKU to launch this year and also the cheapest one ($449). Officially, this processor is set to launch on April 6th, but we are expecting comprehensive test results from independent media already tomorrow.
