AMD claims great performance doesn't need a power-hungry CPU

The focus of AMD's webinar is on their newly released and upcoming 3D V-Cache SKUs. Company executives discuss the significance of this introduction, the current status of these SKUs, and the benefits of using AMD's platform as opposed to Intel's. Also, there is a great deal to discuss at this time. There is a lot of manipulation, to be sure, but we saw similar results.

When it comes to gaming performance, AMD Ryzen 7000X3D processors outperform Intel's 13th Generation Core series. According to third-party benchmarks, the top-of-the-line Ryzen 9 7950X3D from AMD outperforms the Intel Core i9-13900K by 3.8% and the Core i9-13900KS by 2.7%. This is despite the fact that the base frequency of the latter Processor is 6.0 GHz. Apparently, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D is in direct competition with the Core i9-13900KS, as shown on the presentation. However, it's likely that the AMD comparisons were conducted before Intel introduced this Special Edition KS SKU, as neither the old nor the new literature in the PowerPoint deck has any direct comparisons to either SKU.

Curiously, AMD now offers three Ryzen 9 SKUs (the 7900X3D, the 7950X, and the 7900X) to compete with Intel's Core i9-13900K. Everyone can find anything suitable here. See if the forthcoming Ryzen 7 7800X3D or Ryzen 9 5900 SKUs aren't a better (and cheaper) option if you're considering an Intel Core i9-12900K or Core i7-13700K.

Another major accomplishment of the 600 platform for which AMD may take credit is its compatibility with the new PCIe standard. When using both memory and a graphics processing unit on the CPU's PCIe lanes, the X670E and B650E motherboard series simply have more PCIe lanes available and experience no bottleneck. But, Intel has a leg up because of its support for faster DDR5 memory. A problem with non-binary memory support (24/48/96GB) also exists, but AMD is said to be hard at work on an AGESA upgrade.

The AMD Ryzen 7000X3D series consumes far less power than the Intel Core i9 series, and this is likely the platform's greatest benefit. In response to Intel's claims that "You need a power-hungry processor to attain top results," AMD offers a graphic demonstrating significantly lower total system power consumption. Intel's equivalent improvement will take more time to materialize.
