To answer the age-old question: AMD or Intel, we have made a concise comparision between the two. Two CPUs AMD's 3D V-Cache technology gives the Ryzen 9 7950X3D an edge in gaming, according to our testing. Team Red wins, despite Intel's Core i9-13900performance K's in offic,e apps. Price and supply Intel's Core i9-13900K, announced in September 2022, debuted at $590 on October 20, 2022. Most merchants sell it for $530–$570 now. Intel introduced Raptor Lake processors with the Core i9-13900K. AMD released the Ryzen 9 7950X3D after numerous other CPUs. AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D review: closing the Intel gap for gaming - The Verge Photo Credit: The Verge The Ryzen 7000 range, including the Ryzen 9 7950X, debuted in September 2022. The $700 Ryzen 9 7950X3D debuted on February 28, 2023, at CES 2023. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D arrives in April, while the Ryzen 9 7900X3D arrived the same day as Ryzen 9 7950X3D. AMD processors cost $100 more than Intel ones. Intel has a value advantage because the Core i9-13900K has been on sale below $600 for months. Specs The CPU specs show many variances. The Intel Core i9-13900K has a hybrid core architecture with P and E cores. It has more cores than the Ryzen 9 7950X3D but the same threads. AMD's base clock is much higher than Intel's. Power consumption is similar, however the Core i9-13900K can be overclocked to 253 watts. Finally, cache size differs. Raptor Lake CPUs have a lot more cache, but the 3D V-Cache-powered Ryzen 9 7950X3D beats them. AMD's 3D chip design gives the chip 144MB of cache. Performance The Core i9-13900K and Ryzen 9 7950X3D were benchmarked below. All tests used 32GB DDR5-6000 RAM and Nvidia's RTX 4080 GPU. The Core i9-13900K outperforms in productivity. Cinebench and real-world benchmarks like PugetBench for Photoshop and faster Handbrake transcoding rates support its faster single-core and multi-core speeds. Because to its greater boost clock speeds up to 6GHz and core count, the Core i9-13900K is better for content creators. Intel's processor doesn't win outright. Because of its stronger cores, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D led Blender. The Ryzen 9 7950X3D has faster cores than the Core i9-13900K, but it has less cores. AMD led Y-Cruncher, where we calculated 500 million Pi digits using CPUs. Calculating Pi is RAM-intensive, thus the Ryzen 9 7950X3D's more cache may help. AMD's 3D V-Cache has limited uses beyond gaming. Intel leads productivity. The Core i9-13900K is $100–150 cheaper and slightly slower than AMD in some tasks. The Ryzen 9 7950X3D performs well, but its extra expense is largely for gaming. Gaming AMD's last-gen Ryzen 7 5800X3D proved that 3D V-Cache is gaming-ready. The Ryzen 9 7950X3D outperformed the Core i9-13900K in almost every game. Our test bench results are below. Red Dead Redemption 2 has some slight advantages, but AMD's chip dominates CPU-limited games. AMD led by 3% in F1 2022. In Far Cry 6, Ryzen 9 7950X3D was 35% faster. Our benchmark suite shows processor differences, therefore these benefits may not apply to all games. Our tests were conducted at 1080p with high settings, and as resolutions increase, your GPU will become the bottleneck. The Ryzen 9 7950X3D is undoubtedly the greatest gaming CPU, although the Core i9-13900K is close behind. Intel Core i9-13900K - Core i9 13th Gen Raptor Lake 24-Core (8P+16E) P-core Base Frequency: 3.0 GHz E-core Base Frequency: 2.2 GHz LGA 1700 125W Intel UHD Graphics 770 Desktop Processor - Photo Credit: Newegg.com Gaming balances productivity. AMD leads, but Intel is close behind. If you play games, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D is worth it. Ryzen 9 7950X3D and Core i9-13900K are good choices. Both perform well in productivity and gaming, but one is definitely better. The Ryzen 9 7950X3D is more expensive, but it matches the Core i9-13900K in productivity and can enhance gaming performance by 35%. Value may favor the Core i9-13900K, but spending $600 or $700 on a CPU is a waste. Other considerations apply. AMD upgrades cost more than Intel upgrades. Ryzen 9 7950X3D and expensive 600-series motherboards only support DDR5. AMD will support the Ryzen 9 7950X3D's AM5 socket, whereas Intel's next-gen processors will remove the LGA1200 socket used by the Core i9-13900K. The Ryzen 9 7950X3D costs more initially but may save money over time.
