AMD Ryzen 7000X3D Processor
expected release date
The AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs are the first to feature the Zen 4 core architecture, and the upcoming Ryzen 7000X3D chips will be the first to feature 3D V-Cache paired with the same Zen 4 architecture. The CPU lineup is expected in early 2023 and we’ll talk about what you can What to expect in terms of specifications, performance and prices.
AMD Ryzen 7000X3D ‘Zen 4’ CPUs: Brings 3D V-Cache Quality to Zen 4 and AM5 Platform
Earlier this year, AMD introduced the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, a CPU that’s designed to deliver the best value and performance for gamers by taking advantage of 3D V-Cache technology that allows AMD to stack large pools of cache on top of Zen chips, enabling Increases performance in bandwidth-hungry games and applications. The benefit was clear from the start with reviews showing a massive increase in gaming performance that matched and even surpassed Intel’s fastest CPU, the Core i9-12900K, at the time. With Ryzen 7000X3D parts, AMD plans to replicate that and give gamers another boost that could make AM5 the fastest platform to play on.
AMD Ryzen 7000X3D ‘Zen 4’ 3D V-Cache Desktop CPU Expected Features:
- Slight improvement over TSMC’s 5nm process node
- Up to 64 MB stack cache per CCD (96 MB L3 per CCD)
- Increase in gaming performance (average and minutes)
- Compatible with AM5 platforms
There are some rumors and some official information from AMD that we already know about the Ryzen 7000X3D CPUs.
AMD Ryzen 7000X3D “Zen 4” 3D V-Cache CPU Specifications
AMD’s first 3D V-Cache CPU only came in one flavor, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. With the Ryzen 7000X3D, AMD is rumored to offer more than one SKU. Current rumors have pointed to an 8-core and 6-core variant, but there’s room open for 16- and 12-core variants as well. We can’t say for sure how many variants will hit the market, but should the full 3D V-Cache lineup come out with four SKUs comprising 16, 12, 8 and 6 base SKUs, the lineup would look something like this below:
- Ryzen 9 7950X3D 16-Core (2-CCD)
- Ryzen 9 7900X3D 12-Core (2-CCD)
- Ryzen 7 7800X3D 8-Core (1-CCD)
- Ryzen 5 7600X3D Hexa-Core (1-CCD)
The other thing to talk about is how much 3D V-Cache we’re going to see in each variant. The first 3D V-Cache chip to feature 64MB of cache memory stacked on a single CCD. If AMD were to keep the exact same cache count, we’d get up to 96MB of L3 cache on single CCDs and 192MB of L3 cache on dual CCDs. AMD could come out and offer increased amounts of stack cache on its newer chips but that’s something we can’t confirm at this time.
Another important thing to talk about is overclocking support. The first generation 3D V-Cache CPUs did not get any tuning options and voltage options were locked (only to be unlocked by some motherboard vendors with a BETA/Non-Public BIOS). However, AMD’s Robert Hallock (ex-head of technical marketing) has confirmed that while first-chip overclocking is disabled, AMD could have future generations of 3D V-Cache CPUs that may support overclocking just like any CPU. other centric.
Frequency matters, frequency matters but every processor, every game is always a series of trade-offs, throttling relief and in our architecture, when you’re in the four and a half to five gigahertz range, four or five is enough when you put a lot of memory on your head you know you’re no longer limited by frequencyyou don’t give up anything to target that frequency, move performance limiters or performance accelerators, or move somewhere else in the architecture So we can dial back the frequency a little easier on the temps, make it easier to cool down and drop a large extra block of cache on top And it’s more transistor density, more thermal density, so that’s a trade-off that was very easy.

The other trade-off besides overclocking was that clock speeds were slightly lower and that may still be a thing on AMD Ryzen 7000X3D CPUs since the performance advantage that comes from the cache offsets the losses that occur due to the lower clocks.

AMD Ryzen 7000X3D “Zen 4” 3D V-Cache CPU Performance
AMD is currently marketing its Ryzen 7000 CPUs comfortably against 13th Gen Raptor Lake processors although the competition tends to offer slightly better performance and better value at the moment.
The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D brought up to 40% and a 15% performance increase on average across a variety of games on non-3D parts and if AMD made an improvement to the stack 3D cache and made it run a bit higher than the cache current, then we can see a corresponding improvement in performance. If performance sees a similar or slightly higher improvement in performance, that would put the X3D chipset slightly ahead of Intel’s 13th Gen lineup. But without performance benchmarks, we can’t verify any of the performance claims yet, so it’s best to wait a bit for more information.
AMD Ryzen 7000X3D ‘Zen 4’ 3D V-Cache CPU Price and Availability
The most important aspect of AMD Ryzen 7000X3D “Zen 4” CPUs will be price. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is priced the same as the Ryzen 7 5800X but over a year later. By then, the Ryzen 7 5800X has already been reduced to $329-$349. So the price difference ended up being around $100, so the price went up 25-30%.
The upcoming AM5 AMD Ryzen 7000X3D 3D V-Cache CPUs could end up around $50 to $100 higher than the non-3D segment. We can expect the following price points for 3D V-Cache parts:
- Ryzen 9 7950X3D – 799 USD (+ 100 USD)
- Ryzen 9 7900X3D – 649 USD (+ 100 USD)
- Ryzen 7 7800X3D – $449 (+ $50)
- Ryzen 5 7600X3D – $399 (+ $50)
Now these are preliminary pricing and again, no SKUs have been confirmed but this is what we think the pricing structure might look like. For the launch, we were able to get an internal roadmap that more or less confirms that AMD will unveil Zen 4 3D V-Cache parts at CES 2023. The processors will be positioned as the fastest gaming chipsets on the market and will take the gaming performance crown from Intel Raptor Lake processors. Thirteenth generation.
