AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D beats Core i9 12900K in gaming benchmarks

AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D is coming soon. Chips are showing up in the wild, and early bird reviews and benchmarks are popping up online. Given that AMD has been touting the 5800X3D’s gaming prowess, we’ve been waiting to see if that’s true. It seems so.

Peru Hardware Site Xanxo Games (pass 3D Center) managed to get a retail Ryzen 7 5800X3D and put it through a comprehensive set of benchmarks comparing it to Intel’s Core i9 12900KF. Since AMD did not sample the site, it is not subject to the embargo.
