The AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D appears in AotS very close to the Core i9-13900K
We already have the first performance test of a AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3Dunfortunately this has happened in the game benchmark Ashes of the Singularity (AotS). Although it serves as an example, we cannot go much further, since not very reliablebut between nothing and this, we can at least get an idea of what we could expect from AMD’s new high-end CPU.
Specifically, this CPU was seen on up to three occasions, in three tests with different minutes apart. In all cases, this processor was accompanied by NVIDIA’s top-of-the-range graphics card, the GeForce RTX 4090. All tests were performed under the DirectX 11 API, in a graphical configuration “Crazy“to a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels.
The AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D on the lookout for the Intel Core i9-13900K, at least in AotS
The first test carried out reflected a performance of 91FPS with a score of 8,900 points. On the second test, the score went up to 9,000 pointswhile in the third test, the 9,100 points with 92FPS. For reference, the only performance test of an Intel Core i9-13900K, with the same GPU, and the same graphics preset, returned a performance of 107FPS with a score of 10,600 points. In this way, the Intel CPU shows 16% faster in this game.
We really don’t know why AotS is still being used, a very outdated title, so you can already imagine that the benchmark is at the same level. We are talking about a 2016 game, with some very simple tests. In this way, we continue to stress that the Ryzen 9 7900X3D does not stand out in this game. We have to wait to see his performance in much more current, modern, and demanding titles. One of these may be Hogwarts Legacy, which is quite difficult to move freely, even with the best PC today.
In this way, it will touch keep waiting for more evidence to leak performance tests to see if the increase in the cache achieves topple Raptor Lake CPUs. Under the paper, it should be like this. But of course, now the important thing is to know how much will the improvement be. And of course, the extra cost from a more expensive CPU, more expensive motherboard, and go for DDR5 memory. In the end everything is a computation of performance offered per euro invested.
Thus, there is still no clear winner. And less at a time when building a gaming PC is so expensive.
The AMD Ryzen9 7950X (not X3D) “is faster”
He AMD Ryzen9 7950XAMD’s top-of-the-line CPU without 3D V-Cache technology, with the same graphics settings (except Directx 12 API), is capable of reaching the 159FPS with a score of 15,900 points. Other things being equal, the Intel Core i9-13900K achieves a performance of 137FPS (13,700 points). Of course, on the other hand you can also see the Core i9-12900K moving between the 151 – 159FPS (15,000 – 15,800 points), so it doesn’t make much sense either. Hence this benchmark puts out some rather strange numbers depending on the CPU displayed. It is because of that you don’t have to pay attention to everything he shows.
On the other hand, remember that the improved variant, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, will go on sale at a recommended price of $699. On the other hand, the Ryzen 9 7900X3D will do it for $599. For reference, in the US you can get a Core i9-13900K for $579.99. In this way, things will be very close. Everything looks like AMD will be superior in performance, at a higher cost. Will be worth? she will have to wait to meet him.
