AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Continues Showing Much Potential For 3D V-Cache In Technical Computing
One of the new areas/workloads tested in this round of testing was looking at the Ryzen 7 5800X3D performnace under Open Porous Media for flow simulation and transport of fluids in porous media. Open Porous Media is leading when it comes to open-source software in this area and important for oil/gas research and discovery. While this can scale up to be a bigger task suitable for AMD EPYC Milan-X server processors, these benchmarks show great strength as well on the Ryzen 7 5800X3D -- significantly faster than other Ryzen 5000 series processors and now also putting it ahead of the Core i9 12900K when looking at the single core performance.
The CPU power consumption in this configuration also showed the Ryzen 7 5800X3D consuming less power than the higher-end Ryzen 5000 series models and the Core i9 12900K.
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D continued showing great performance when scaling up to the available CPU physical cores with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D (all the tests at 8 threads were slower than 4 threads due to being memory bandwidth limited on the consumer platform). Again another test case making us wish there was a "Ryzen 9 5950X3D" model or so for a real flagship desktop CPU with 3D V-Cache.
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU power consumption continued coming in lower than the Core i9 12900K and the Ryzen 5900X/5950X.
Additional promising results out of OPM with a separate model. These great OPM results are similar to what we've seen out of the CloverLeaf hydrodynamics benchmark and other similar workloads.
