Considerations for Existing AM4 Users
The 5800X3D can be easily slotted into existing AM4 motherboards, making it an easy and affordable upgrade for users on this platform.The 5800X3D does not require premium memory for optimum performance.
On the other hand, the 7800X3D requires a new platform, which may be more expensive and require additional investment.
“For those of you still on AM4 and in need of more CPU power, do you purchase the 5800X3D or start over with a new platform supporting the shiny new 7800X3D?”
Considerations for New PC Builds
For users without an existing AM4 system, the choice between the 5800X3D and the 7800X3D depends on budget and requirements.The 5800X3D and its supporting platform can offer a more affordable option for building a new PC.
On the other hand, the 7800X3D provides a high-performance option for those who want to go all out with their new build.
“For those of you without an existing AM4 system looking at building a brand new PC, should you go with a more affordable option in the 5800X3D and its supporting platform or do you go all out with the new 7800X3D?”
Test Setup and Components
To ensure fair testing, both systems were balanced in terms of components used. For the AM4 and the AMD 5800 X 3D, the testing utilized the Gigabyte X570S Aorus Master motherboard, 32GB of G-Skill Trident Z Neo 3600MHz CL16 memory, and an Inno3D RTX 1490i Chill for graphics.
For the AM5 and the AMD 7800 X 3D, the setup included the Gigabyte X670 Aorus Master motherboard, 32GB of G-Skill Trident Z5 Neo 6000MHz CL30 memory, and the same Inno3D RTX 1490i Chill. All testing was performed on a Seagate FireCuda 5 2TB drive, running Windows 11 22H2, and games were tested at 1080p, 1440p, and 4K resolutions.
“To test, we’ve tried to keep our systems as fair as possible in terms of the components used. For AM4 and the 5800 X 3D, we used the Gigabyte X570S Aorus Master with 32GB of G-Skill Trident Z Neo 3600MHz CL16 memory. For AM5 and the 7800 X 3D, we used the Gigabyte X670 Aorus Master with 32GB of G-Skill Trident Z5 Neo 6000MHz CL30 memory. We used an Inno3D RTX 1490i Chill to stretch the legs of both systems. All testing was done on Windows 11 22H2 and all games were tested at 1080p, 1440p, and 4K.”

“Dying Light 2 on high was a similar story again, with the 7800x3d leading over the 5800x3d by just under 6% at 1080p, while 1440p saw that lead shrink to just under 3%.”
Both CPUs show almost identical results at 1080p, but the AMD 5800 X 3D has better one percent lows. At 1440p, the AMD 7800 X 3D has a slight advantage in one percent lows.
“F1 22 on the ultra-high preset at 1080p saw almost identical results between the two processors, with just four FPS between them, though the 5800x3d did come in with better one percent lows, though only with a margin of around three percent.”
Far Cry 6
Both CPUs reach their limits in this title at both
Gaming Performance Comparison
The 7800x3d outperforms the 5800x3d in terms of gaming performance with a healthier 18% margin in the one percent lows.Both CPUs show similar performance at 1080P and 1440P, with a slight advantage for the 7800x3d at over 300 FPS.

- In “Spider-Man Remastered,” the 7800x3d comes out 30% faster overall at both resolutions. At 4K, the performance narrows to a five percent gap.
- “Microsoft Flight Simulator” showcases significant CPU bottlenecks, with the 7800x3d being 32% faster at 1080P, 29% faster at 1440P, and 19% faster at 4K compared to the 5800x3d.
“A real mixed bag with the 5800x3d fighting back in certain games and at certain resolutions…the 7800x3d is the faster chip.”
Cost and Power Consumption
The 5800x3d is significantly cheaper than the 7800x3d across all three resolutions.Additionally, considering the cost of DDR5 memory, a new motherboard, and potentially a new cooler, the cost argument for the 7800x3d worsens.
Power consumption results show a mixed bag, with certain games favoring one CPU over the other. At 4K, the 7800x3d emerges as the less power-hungry processor.
“The 5800x3d comes out as the Victor, being the cheaper of the two processors by quite some margin…the 7800x3d is the chip that’s able to run quite a bit cooler.”
The 5800x3d is the better value chip when comparing CPU to CPU.The 5800x3d is also cheaper in terms of the overall cost of the upgrade path.
Considering the cost of upgrading to x670, super fast DDR5, and other components, the 5800x3d is the more logical choice for most users.
“most people will be wanting the lowest cost change and for that, the 5800 X 3D is the better, more logical choice”
The 7800 x3d is priced $55 more expensive than the 5800x3d.The additional cost of the 7800 x3d, the motherboard, and memory can quickly add up, making the 5800x3d a more cost-effective option.
Upgrading to x670 and DDR5 will be a bigger hit to the wallet.In the long run, the cost of changing to newer components may be similar, as the current hardware will be worth less.
“considering what you only get around 15 more performance at certain resolutions, couple that with a board that will be around 40 more if looking at B series based products, a memory that comes in around 25 more expensive, well, that cost just keeps mounting up and up”
Upgrading to the 5800x3d leaves fewer options for further upgrades.DDR4 3600MHz CL14 or CL16 memory is the sweet spot, and most users may already have a GPU capable of utilizing the CPU’s performance.
Upgrading to newer components in a couple of years may be necessary, making the comparison to the 7800x3d’s successor relevant.However, the current hardware value may decrease, offsetting the difference in cost.
“given a couple of years, you’re probably going to be looking to upgrade to something newer, and that’s where we’ll be comparing the 7800x3d to its successor, but at this point, while it will be cheaper, your current Hardware will be worth less, so the cost to change may be around the same price point”
Consideration of Other CPUs
Some non-x3d parts of the 7000 series CPUs are priced well and may fit the requirements of users.There are other CPUs on the market that potentially offer better alternatives.
Buyers should consider their specific needs before making a decision.
“there’s plenty of other CPUs out there that may fit the bill, I know slightly better for you”
Conclusion: 5800x3d vs 7800x3d
Across all games and resolutions, the 7800x3d comes in 15% faster overall compared to the 5800x3d at 1080P and 1440P. At 4K, the gap shrinks to just four percent, showing greater GPU limitation.The 7800x3d outperforms the 5800x3d in gaming performance, expected given it’s the newer product, but some titles still exhibit bottlenecks, especially at lower resolutions.
Considering the cost per frame, the 5800x3d remains the more economical choice.Power consumption is comparable between the two CPUs, with the 7800x3d being more efficient in some games and emerging as the cooler chip overall.
“The 7800x3d is the better CPU in terms of gaming performance…but it’s still clear to see that certain titles still present a bottleneck…at what cost?”
