Confidential AMD Ryzen 7000X3D review guide leaked by HDTecnologia reveals official performance of AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D.
Review guides typically prioritize games that are optimized for specific hardware, serving as a benchmark for reviewers to compare their results and identify any anomalies. However, this data is often repurposed by marketing teams to convince customers that their hardware is superior, even though gaming performance may vary.
Recently, performance figures from the review guide for AMD’s upcoming flagship Zen4 desktop processor, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, were leaked by a website. This processor boasts an extended L3 cache and has generated high expectations following the impressive performance demonstrated by the Zen3-based Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
AMD conducts internal testing of Ryzen 9 7950X3D against Core i9-13900K using Radeon RX 7900 XTX and NVIDIA RTX 4090 GPUs; comparison also made with 7950X model without 3D V-Cache.
According to recent testing, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D outperformed the Core i9-13900K by 5.6% in gaming when paired with the Radeon RX 7900 XTX GPU. The tests were conducted using a selection of games at a 1080p resolution and both systems were equipped with 2x16GB DDR5-6000 memory.
When the RTX 4090 GPU was utilized, the gap between the Ryzen 9 7950X3D and the Core i9-13900K widened to 6%, and up to 16% when compared to the 7950X model without the 3D V-Cache. These results suggest that the new Ryzen 9 7950X3D, with its extended L3 cache, may offer a significant advantage in gaming performance over its competitors.
According to the leaked review guide, synthetic benchmark data was also included for the CPU. The data shows that the Ryzen processor outperformed the Intel CPU in 7zip, but the Intel CPU still came out ahead in DolphinBench, Cinebench R23, and Geekbench.
The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D is set to be released next week at a price of $699, which was the original price of last year’s 7950X CPU. However, the current price of the 7950X CPU has dropped significantly and can now be found for around $589. While the Ryzen 9 has a slight edge in performance, it may not be enough to sway gamers to choose it over the Intel Core i9-13900K, which is priced at $569 (affiliate link).
