AMD Launches Ryzen 7 5700X3D, a Competitor for Core i5-13600KF in Gaming

AMD’s Newly Released Processors, Headlined by Ryzen 7 5700X3D

AMD commenced sales of several new processors yesterday. The manufacturer has released the Ryzen 7 5700X3D and Ryzen 7 5700, Ryzen 5 5600GT, and Ryzen 5 5500GT for the Socket AM4 platform. In addition, the hybrid Ryzen 8000G series has been released for the Socket AM5 platform. While the latter has made its mark among reviewers, little has been written about the newly launched Ryzen 7 5700X3D and Ryzen 5000GT series.

The newly unveiled Ryzen 7 5700X3D, an eight-core chip, has particularly piqued industry interest as it offers a more affordable alternative to the still-popular Ryzen 7 5800X3D. Despite its lower clock frequencies of 3.0–4.1GHz versus the 3.4–4.5GHz of the 5800X3D, it retains an identical core configuration.

Test samples of this new processor have not been provided by AMD to the western media for review. However, several Chinese bloggers have managed to procure it and have shared initial performance test results on the Bilibili platform.

Unfortunately, the published reviews do not offer a direct comparison between the Ryzen 7 5700X3D and the older Ryzen 7 5800X3D. Instead, the new chip has been compared with the economically similar Intel Core i5-12600KF ($229) and Core i5-13600KF ($285). The recommended price for the AMD chip, for the record, is $249.

According to these tests, the Ryzen 7 5700X3D outperforms the Core i5-12600KF and matches up with the Core i5-13600KF. The performance gains of the AMD chip’s additional 3D V-Cache vary per game, enhancing performance in some while making little impact in others. On the whole, the specifications of the Ryzen 7 5700X3D suggest that its performance is 7–9% lower on average than the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, considering that the former operates at a frequency 400MHz lower than the latter.

Benchmark results

The Ryzen 7 5700X3D is the third processor in the Vermeer (Zen 3) series to employ the 3D V-Cache technology, following the eight-core Ryzen 7 5800X3D and the six-core Ryzen 5 5600X3D also launched by AMD.

Sales of the Ryzen 7 5700X3D have now begun. The chip is available for the recommended price of $249 from Western retailers. Although the processor is yet to be available in Russia, it can be purchased through the OZON platform with international delivery. The price for the BOX version (without a cooler) is approximately 25,000 rubles, while the OEM version costs about 22,000 rubles.
