The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D is a one-of-a-kind processor that was developed to compete with Intel’s 12900KS for the title of “fastest gaming processor” and to demonstrate the capabilities of the company’s 3D V-Cache design for its upcoming Ryzen CPUs. Intel’s 12900KS is currently considered to be the “fastest gaming processor” in the industry.

It is a sort of farewell to the surprisingly resilient AM4 platform, which made its debut in 2017 and outlived half a dozen generations of Intel processors as Ryzen CPUs advanced rapidly. The AM4 platform made its debut in 2017 and outlived both of those events.
Let’s get started with the basics by providing a more in-depth explanation of what a 3D V-Cache is.
The cache of a processor, which functions similarly to RAM, is a temporary storage location for the data that the processor is currently processing. However, due to the cache’s location inside the CPU, not only is it considerably easier to access, but it also has a significantly reduced capacity for data storage.
L1, L2, and L3 are the names given to the three levels of cache that are used by modern processors. The L1 cache is the smallest and can be accessed the quickest, while the L2 cache is slower but has more space, and the L3 cache is both slower and has even more space than the L2 cache.
AMD modified the Cache
AMD has modified the third level of the cache by moving away from the traditional two-dimensional design and toward the three-dimensional design of a three-dimensional stack of cache, which takes up more vertical space.
Because of this, it is now possible to store a significantly larger quantity of data within the central processing unit (CPU) at the same time. This increases the likelihood that the data that is required is already present, which in turn speeds up any subsequent processing.
AMD is expected to implement this technology in its upcoming Zen 4 processors; however, for the time being, there is only the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which is an improved model introduced in 2020.
The 5800X3D sacrifices a small amount of frequency as well as some overclocking options in exchange for a significantly larger 96 MB L3 cache, which is three times as large as the cache that is included in the 5800X.
Before we get into the first set of test results, let’s take a moment to discuss the testing apparatus that we’ll be using.
We use an Asus ROG Crosshair 8 Hero for AMD, an Asus ROG Maximus Z590 Hero for 11th-gen Intel, and an Asus ROG Z690 Maximus Hero for 12th-gen Intel. These are all top-tier boards for their respective platforms. For AMD, we use an Asus ROG Crosshair 8 Hero.
When compared to 12th-gen Intel, DDR4 motherboards used GSkill 3600MTs CL16 memory, whereas DDR4 motherboards used Corsair 5200MTs CL38 RAM, which is faster but has a higher latency. DDR4 motherboards also used GSkill 3600MTS CL16 memory.
The 11th generation Intel and AMD CPUs were both cooled…
