As noted by some the larger cache can help in several areas. if you already have a 5800, really no point in getting this, but if you do content creation and some games, should show a nice little boost. The more cache on the cpu, the better and less ram access that occurs.What's the difference between the 5800x and the 5800x3d?
Sounds like it has a built-in GPU? Someone mentioned L3 cache, so that 96Mb is probably more.
Edit: From what I can find, 5800x3d is 3.4Ghz base vs 3.8Ghz, but has 512kb L1 cache vs no L1 cache, same L2 cache, and 96Mb L3 cache vs 32Mb L3 cache on the 5800x
Looks like a wash to me. It would be some sort of upgrade if they had managed to keep the clocks up. My guess is they wanted to build it on 6nm, but supply/demand/pandemic had other plans.
