AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Continues Showing Much Potential For 3D V-Cache In Technical Computing

Written by Michael Larabel in Processors on 2 May 2022. Page 4 of 4. 34 Comments

A larger multi-CPU comparison continues to be worked on with all freshly (re-)tested processor data. A late start due to not receiving the 5800X3D as a review sample from AMD, unfortunately, but rather only began 5800X3D Linux testing after resorting to buying a retail unit...

From this latest testing and other benchmarks I have been working on, via our is a look at some of the areas where the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is performing the best relative to the community of data. See this search page for an overall percentile-based ranking for where the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is coming in the strongest and other areas not so much. From those links are also other composite rankings of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D against other processors with public data available.

Long story short, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D continues being an interesting processor for showcasing the potential of 3D V-Cache in the desktop space. Outside of the Windows gaming focus currently promoted by AMD, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is certainly great for developers on a budget wishing to work on profiling and optimizations for improved cache handling ahead of next-generation processors. The strong AI/ML real-world performance across various workloads also opens up the potential of future AMD Ryzen 3D V-Cache processors having relevance for possible edge computing use-cases. The uplift in many of the technical computing workloads is very promising though that will be of more interest if/when AMD releases a 3D V-Cache processor at the top-end of the Ryzen portfolio. There is always Milan-X for the best performance if your workloads scale well up to many cores and your budget allows, but would be nice to have a 3D V-Cache offering between the 5800X3D and the bottom-end EPYC 7373X Milan-X CPU. In any event I continue exploring the Ryzen 7 5800X3D in more areas under Linux and continue to be captivated by this very interesting processor and 3D V-Cache technology for offering up big L3 caches.
