CPU Performance

To start testing off I went with a rendering-focused benchmark with the always popular Blender. This benchmark was recently updated so our result list is smaller here. I have all three tests stacked together so we can see an overall of them altogether. Blender loves the higher core counts but clock speed does still make a difference. The 7800X3D is middle of the pack on both and the 3D V-Stacked cache doesn’t help in this situation so its performance in the older and newer Blender tests have it right with or just ahead of the 7700 and behind the 7700X which has a higher clock speed and the same core count.

Continuing with the video encoding theme I also have Handbrake which is an open-source transcoder. For this test I am taking a 4k video down to 1080p 30 FPS, the results are the average FPS of that task. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D averaged 108.1 FPS which tied it with the Ryzen 7 7700 and it is one FPS behind the higher clocked 7700X.

graph3

For the always popular Cinebench, I am testing with the current R23 and the slightly older Cinebench R20. I always like Cinebench because we have multi-core and single-core performance which gives us a good look at the performance of the whole CPU and IPC performance. In R20 on the multi-core test, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D is right with the 7700 in the multicore R20 test and for the R23 test, it is a hair below it. For the single core tests the 7800X3D was down lower below the 7600 on both tests. The 7600 has a boost clock of 5.1 GHz whereas the 7800X3D is 5 GHz flat so that makes sense.

Next up we have ray tracing-focused rendering benchmarks. Here I tested the CPUs in POV-Ray and V-Ray including the newer V-Ray Benchmark 5. POV-Ray was also tested with a single core and across all of the cores. The 7800X3D is sitting between the 7700 and the 7600X in POV-Ray multi-core test and for the single core it was down below the 7600 due to the 7600 having a higher boost clock speed. The older V-Ray benchmark has the 7800X3D sitting 1 second behind the 7700 and 9 seconds faster than the 7600X. The newer V-Ray Benchmark 5 is a little different, for that test the 7800X3D does edge up in front of the 7700 but behind the 7700X.

I also tested using the CPUz’s built-in benchmark which does run on a single thread and with all threads. In the multi-thread test, the 7800X3D is sitting below the older 10900K and above the 12600K. As far as compared to the current 7000 series Ryzen CPUs it is way out in front of the 7600X but slightly behind the 7700. For the single-threaded test however, the 7800X3D is behind the 7600 but out in front of all of the older Intel and AMD models with sub 5GHz boost clocks.

graph11

Next, we have wPrime which is a classic overclocking benchmark that calculates pi out to 1024 million digits and is timed. This is a multi-thread heavy test which has the older high core count CPUs still all over the top of the charts and you can see that with the top CPUs sitting at 8 or more cores. The 7800X3D with its 8 cores didn’t do too bad here sitting out in front of the 11900K and the newer 13900K but it is just slightly behind the Ryzen 7700.

graph12

7 Zip is another open-source program, this time for compressing and decompressing all of your files. Here I have run the benchmark and we have three results. The combined MIPS is a combination of compressing and decompressing performance. Then I have it broken down between the two. The combined results have the 7800X3D sitting just ahead of the 7700 and behind the 7700X. The individual tests have the compressing result in that same spot but the decompressing result is a little lower behind the 7700 and ahead of the 7600X.

graph14

Jetstream 2 is a compilation benchmark that takes a long list of HTML5 and Java in-browser tests and runs them all three times and puts together an overall score. I love this benchmark because let's be honest, most people are using their browser more than any other game or program. Jetstream gives some interesting results sometimes though but it tends to prefer high IPC or single-core performance and there are some situations where it prefers lower core-count CPUs. This time around the 7800X3D is up in the top 1/3 of the chart sitting below the 7600X and ahead of the 7600.

graph15

For Passmark Performance Test I used the latest version, Performance Test 10 I only look at the overall CPU score which takes a few different synthetic benchmarks and combines the results to put together an overall score. This is a test that does favor multi-threaded performance over IPC and you can see that with the highest core count CPUs being at the top but the 7800X3D with its 8 cores still ends up in the middle of the pack here behind the 7700 but way out in front of the 7600X which has the lower core count.

graph16

Crossmark is from BAPCo which also makes SYSmark and this is a cross-platform test where you can compare performance between phones and both windows and mac computers. This is the start of our overall PC benchmarks and Crossmark uses a mix of real-world tests to output an overall score. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D is in the middle of the chart but near the top of a clump of CPUs that all have similar scores including the 7700, 7600X, and 7600 which it is in front of all three.

graph17

PCMark 10 is a great test because it tests things like video calls, browser performance, excel, and word performance to give an idea of real-world performance. It tends to like higher clock speeds but does take raw core count into account as well which you can see. But the big surprise here is that PC Mark benefited a lot from the 3D V-Cache and the 7800X3D did surprisingly well here sitting behind the 13900K but in front of everything else.

graph18

We recently added even more real-world testing with the UL Procyon Benchmarks which are as real-world as they can get using the actual programs that you would use in each test. There are two overall benchmarks, first is the Office Productivity Benchmark which uses Microsoft Office 365 to test actual performance in word, excel, PowerPoint, and outlook. The second benchmark is the Photo Editing Benchmark which is run using the latest version of Photoshop as well as Lightroom Classic to look at photo editing performance. I have both scores stacked together to get an overall look at the performance. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D landed below the 7600X in the combined results but the individual results are more interesting. It didn’t do as well with the office tests but its photo editing testing would put it ahead of the 7900X and below the 13900K which is interesting.

graph19

Moving the focus over towards gaming my next test is using Dolphin 5.0 Benchmark. Dolphin 5.0 is a Wii emulator and like most emulators, it doesn’t care about high core counts at all. In fact, it only runs two in total. Clock speeds are king here most of the time and because of that the 7800X3D finished the benchmark in 208 seconds putting it behind the 11900K and the 7700.

graph20

Before diving into game testing I wanted to check out synthetic performance using 3DMark. I tested with the older DX11 Fire Strike test as well as the newer DX12 Time Spy. I also added the new 3DMark CPU Profile benchmark into the mix as well which does a good job of showing the full range of thread counts that you might see being used in games as well as a max threads option that does everything above 16 threads. In the Fire Strike test, the 7800X3D is in the top 1/3 of the chart but still behind the 7700 showing that 3DMark doesn’t benefit from the 3D V-Cache. In the Time Spy test the 12600K edges out in front of the 7800X3D but the 7800X3D still isn’t too far behind the 7700. The CPU profile shows the same thing we saw in the other tests with the 7800X3D starting below the rest of the 7000 Series CPUs in the single-core test and staying there until we get to 8 threads where it can finally jump ahead of the 7600 and 7600X but it stays 400 points behind the 7700 for the last two tests.

The Ryzen 7 5800X3D showed everyone that the stacked L3 cache design was a big benefit for gaming and in our testing of the 7950X3D we saw that as well. So I’m excited to see what the Ryzen 7 7800X3D is capable of, especially when we don’t have to worry about the asymmetrical design like on the 7950X3D. For our in-game testing, I have a variety of tests ranging from older games to newer games to get a mixed look at things. For today though let’s split things up by the overall performance so we can talk about them easier. The 7800X3D in nearly all of our other tests landed around the Ryzen 7 7700 and Ryzen 5 7600X and at times even near the 7600 due to it having lower boost clocks than any of the other 7000 Series CPUs. You would think that would be the opposite of what you would want in a gaming CPU, but with a boost clock of 5 GHz, the 7800X3D still isn’t slow and with having a crazy 96MB of L3 cache stacked on top its performance in a majority of our test games was impressive. In Dirt 5, Far Cry 6, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Metro Exodus it topped the charts. Even crazier is in two of those four the 7800X3D has a big lead on the 7950X3D.

graph30

In Ghost Recon Wildlands, Watch Dogs Legion, and Borderlands 3 the 7800X3D is ahead of almost everything tested but behind the 7950X3D. It’s still crazy to see the gap between the two 3D V-Stack CPUs compared to everything else tested in Watch Dogs Legion and Borderlands with 36 FPS in Borderlands between the 7800X3D and the 7950X for example.

graph24

graph31

graph32

Then there were two games where the huge stacked cache didn’t help, at least as much. For the Team Fortress 2 test the 7800X3D did still sit higher than the 7700, 7700X, and even 7900X where if this were clock speed dependent only it would have been down lower in the chart. But it was still behind the 13900K, 7950X3D, and 7950X. Then for CS:GO we see what I was referring to on the clock speeds where the 7800X3D is down below the Ryzen 7 7700. But let’s be honest the CS:GO results are so far beyond the frame rates needed that one doesn’t matter much.

graph25

graph26

In AIDA64  the cache benchmarks surprisingly didn’t have the same crazy numbers that we saw with the 7950X3D. In fact, the 7800X3D runs with or below the 7700 in every test except for the memory tests which saw some improvement. But this does track with what we saw in the non-gaming tests.
