Average Bench: 99.8% (23rd of 1355)

Based on 839 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00A20F12 Model: AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D 8-Core Processor

The 5800X3D has the same core architecture / IPC as the 5800X but it runs at lower clock speeds and has an extra 64MB of cache (96MB up from 32MB). This results in relatively low latency at 128MB because those transfers have a higher chance of remaining in cache. For most real-world tasks performance will be comparable to the significantly cheaper 5800X. Some specific cache sensitive scenarios such as canned game benchmarks with a 3090-Ti will benefit. Be wary of sponsored reviews with cherry picked games that showcase the wins and ignore the losses. Also watch out for AMD’s army of Neanderthal social media accounts on reddit, forums and youtube, they will be singing their own praises as usual. AMD’s marketers continue to show more interest in this year’s bonuses than the longevity of the brand. Instead of focusing on real-world performance, they attempt to dupe consumers with benchmark busting headlines. The same tactics were used with the Radeon 5000 series GPUs. In order to compete, Zen4 needs to bring substantial IPC improvements, rather than overpriced "3D" marketing gimmicks. Either way, new high end PC gaming builders have little reason to look further than the 12600K. Users with an existing AM4 build should wait a few more months for better performance with Raptor Lake or even Zen4 rather than wasting money on an end-of-life platform. [Mar '22 CPUPro]

AMD are great at selling junk. They pee in the well with fake comments, glorified cheerleaders on youtube and paid magazine reviews. My POS PC still crashes randomly. Everybody needs to call the rats out instead of letting them get away with it—Apr '22

Should give similar performance to a 12900k in gaming at optimal conditions, that said you miss out on PCIe 5.0 and DDR5. In Applications that actually benefit from all that cache it should outperform all CPUs on the market by a fair margin at least for a while.

AMD's attempt to milk the young dumb and impressionable for a quick buck just before the next generation of CPUs come to maket. Any idiot that buys this CPU will be a prime target for "new gen 6D" upgrades in a few months time.
