It's time to compare the Ryzen 7 5700X against the Core i7-12700F, two relatively affordable and powerful 8-core CPUs. We've got a 23 game benchmark covering 1080p and 1440p resolutions.
For testing the Ryzen 7 6800H, we'll see how it performs up against a range of other laptop CPUs, but most importantly Intel's competing Core i7-12700H, and AMD's own predecessor, the Ryzen 7 5800H.
This is a benchmark session, as usual, where we'll be taking an old Ryzen 5 1600 system and upgrade it with the Ryzen 5 5600 to see what's what on gaming.
Today we're taking the Ryzen 7 5800X3D and installing it on a few different B350 and X370 motherboards that were released many years ago to see if it works, and if it does, how well does it work?
A big incentive of going Ryzen over the past few years has been the AM4 platform. AMD promised platform support until at least 2020 and they have delivered, giving users a clear upgrade path from Zen up to Zen 3 CPUs.
On the menu today is another 40 game benchmark -- actually 41. This time it's the 5800X3D against its spiritual predecessor, the 5800X, to see where that massive L3 cache can help out.
We're comparing the Ryzen 5 5600 and Core i5-12400F mainstream CPUs across a range of games at 1080p and 1440p using four tiers of GPU: RTX 3060, RTX 3070, RTX 3080 12GB and RTX 3090 Ti.
