Shortly before the release of AMD’s new X3D processors, some performance values of the new Ryzen 9 7950X3D were leaked. Accordingly, in some games it is very clearly ahead of the competition from Intel and also from our own company. On top of that, a performance value from Cinebench R23 was also published.
AMD’s Ryzen 7000 processors have been on the market for a few months now, but gamers still have to wait for the faster models with X3D cache. But the day after tomorrow it should finally be ready: Then AMD will probably bring the Ryzen 9 7950X3D and the Ryzen 9 7900X3D onto the market, and by then the first tests can also be expected. Of course, there are already some rumors about how well the new CPU will do in games.
For example, fresh benchmark speculation was published yesterday by leaker @chi11eddog, who is active on Twitter. This could allegedly compare the new Ryzen 9 7950X3D with a Ryzen 9 7950X and an Intel Core i9-13900K. To do this, he had the three processors compete against each other in five games. Unfortunately, many details about the test conditions are not known, but the games were apparently run with high graphics settings. Together with the Geforce RTX 3090 used, a certain GPU bottleneck cannot be ruled out.
If you take the published values as given, the new Ryzen 9 7950X3D would be ahead, especially in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Far Cry 5: Compared to the model without X3D cache, the advantage here is over 30 percent. Compared to Intel’s Core i9-13900K, however, there should be a difference of 35 or 12 percent in the games.
However, the general performance advantage is apparently not quite as drastic as in the two titles mentioned, because the difference is smaller in the other games. Especially in Metro Exodus and Star Control, the three models are almost equally fast, sometimes the Core i9-13900K is even slightly ahead. Of course, the results shouldn’t be overestimated, after all they only show a small proportion of games in a little-known test environment.

You should also be careful with the other performance value published by @chi11eddog. According to this, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D achieves a multi-core score of 37,973 points in Cinebench R23, while the single-core performance has not yet been revealed. How close this value is to reality and how the processor performs with only one core will probably be seen on Tuesday at the latest.
