Initial reviews comparing the R7 5700X3D to Intel's i5-12600K and i5-13600K models reveal that AMD's latest 3D V-Cache processor is ~8% slower than the R7 5800X3D for $59 less.

Together with the new Ryzen 8000G desktop APUs based on the acclaimed Phoenix architecture plus the Ryzen 5000GT refreshes for the older 5000G series, AMD also just launched the Ryzen 7 5700X3D model that is only 400 MHz slower than the 5800X3D with the same 8x Zen 3 core configuration. Unfortunately, this model was not sent out to reviewers in the West, but some well-connected Chinese reviewers were able to do some tests, pitting it against Intel’s i5-12600K and the i5-13600K.

Against the i5-12600K(F), the 5700X3D appears to dominate all gaming tests. On the other hand, the battle with the i5-13600K(F) is more balanced. In fast-paced competitive FPS games like CS: GO 2, the AMD processor shows up to a 25% lead. In more resource-intensive games like Cyberpunk 2077, however, the 5700X3D lags behind by up to 18%.

According to Videocardz, these figures should amount to 7-9% lower performance compared to the 5800X3D model that is currently $59 more expensive. Amazon is selling the 5700X3D at $249 now and the price could drop close to $200 with occasional discounts, making it a better choice compared to the Ryzen 5 5600X3D that is exclusively available at Microcenter for $199.99. A Ryzen 5 5500X3D model is expected to launch later this year.
