As with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, benchmarking the EPYC 7773X continues to be quite fun.

Even for code compilation workloads the AMD 3D V-Cache was of some small benefit with the EPYC 7773X processors over the 7763 CPUs.

Zstd compression that is increasingly used by a wide assortment of Linux/open-source software enjoyed the large L3 cache both on Milan-X and with the consumer Ryzen 7 5800X3D.

Granted, 3D V-Cache doesn't universally help all workloads. For those workloads not able to effectively leverage the large cache, the EPYC 7763 was comparable or slightly better due to the base clock speed difference for software like the Blender 3D modelling software.
