The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell-on-earth new benchmark of the Ryzen 9 7950X3D which shows its supremacy over the Intel Core i9-13900K.

The gaming benchmarks pair the Ryzen 9 7950X3D with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 in five titles. Additionally, the user tested the Ryzen 9 7950X3D's gaming performance at a 1080p (1920x1080) resolution with maximum graphics settings.

The Ryzen 9 7950X3D outperformed the Core i9-13900K by 11 per cent. The chip did better in some games than others. For example, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D delivered up to 35 per cent higher performance in Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

In Far Cry 5, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D was 12 per cent faster than the Core i9-13900K. The Ryzen 9 7950X3D's dominance in Metro Exodus dropped to five per cent. The Core i9-13900K only did better in the Star Control game, where Raptor Lake was better than the Ryzen 9 7950X3D by two per cent.

The Ryzen 9 7950X3D, on average, posted 18 per cent better gaming performance than the Ryzen 9 7950X, one of the two highest-performance chips for gaming. Assassin's Creed Valhalla favoured the Ryzen 9 7950X3D by 39 per cent. The Ryzen 9 7950X3D also excelled in Far Cry 5 by 32 per cent.

The Ryzen 9 7950X3D launches on 28 February for $699, the original MSRP for the Ryzen 9 7950X. The Ryzen 9 7950X retails for $576, so the Ryzen 9 7950X3D offers 18 per cent higher gaming performance for 21 per cent more cash.

When you think about it this way, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D doesn't look like such a good deal, but prices for the new chip will likely drop over time.
