The Technical Workloads Where AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D/7950X3D CPUs Are Excellent
The Pennant hydrodynamics open-source software package also was enjoying the AMD Zen 4 3D V-Cache processors with even the 7900X3D out ahead of the 7950X.
The power-savings of the Ryzen 9 7900X3D/7950X3D processors are really the icing on the cake as even if they simply matched the power draw of the 7900X/7950X it would still be a great product for its raw performance.
The LULESH hydrodynamics software also enjoyed a nice leap when it came to power efficiency with these new AMD Ryzen 3D V-Cache processors.
The CloverLeaf hydrodynamics software also had significant time savings when upgrading to the 7900X3D series processors.
Even without factoring in the power-savings, the X3D CPUs at their retail price proved to drive a bargain for hydrodynamics use-cases.
