AMD Ryzen 7 5800X vs. Ryzen 7 5800X3D On Linux 6.0 Benchmarks

Written by Michael Larabel in Processors on 16 September 2022. Page 4 of 4. 18 Comments

In a small set of tests the Ryzen 7 5800X3D does lose out to the 5800X where not able to make use of the large L3 cache while the 5800X is able to enjoy the slightly higher clock speeds.

Or for summing things up, here is a side-by-side chart with out of the 420 benchmarks in total, here are the runs with a measurable and statistically significant difference either way:

The Ryzen 7 5800X3D enjoyed some massive wins for the workloads able to make use of the AMD 3D V-Cache on this consumer desktop CPU. For tons of real-world workloads there were massive to moderate gains in performance thanks to the 96MB of L3 cache. For where the 5800X delivered better performance were the select cases where the tests couldn't effectively make use of the large cache and so the slightly higher clock speeds paid off. In most of those tests not loving the 3D V-Cache, the 5800X wins tended to be by just a couple percent.

That's the latest look at the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D performance under Linux with the very latest kernel and other software packages as well as new/updated benchmarks since my original 5800X3D benchmarks. It will be interesting to see in due course what AMD has for Zen 4 on the 3D V-Cache front. But for now those interested in all these fresh 5800X vs. 5800X3D benchmarks can find all 420 benchmarks on this result page.
