AMD is set to officially unveil its Zen 4 based Ryzen 7000 series processors with 3D V-Cache at CES 2023, but it has not been officially confirmed yet. However, South Korean media reports say the company is preparing to introduce his three new Ryzen 7000 X3D processors with either 96 MB or 192 MB of L3 cache in January. .
The three Ryzen 7000 X3D models are said to feature 16, 12 and 8 cores. quasar zonea popular Korean publication (the report was kindly translated for the world by @harukaze5719). The processor is set to be announced in January, so AMD is likely to announce it at CES to get maximum attention for the new parts and their features.
Quasarzone reports that @All_The_Watts!This shows that 3 CPUs are coming, and also mentions some of their specs. He also reveals that the part will have similar clocks to the regular model and that the Ryzen 7000 X3D processor will ship in March.
- Ryzen 9 7950X3D: 16MB L2, 192MB L3, 170W
- Ryzen 9 7900X3D: 12MB L2, 192MB L3, 170W
- Ryzen 7 7800X3D: 8MB L2. 96MB L3, 170W
While the information looks plausible, please note that we are dealing with unofficial, preliminary data.
3D V-Cache is best suited for workloads that rely on memory bandwidth and single-threaded performance. For client PCs, this generally means games. In fact, even after AMD’s latest launch, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is still one of his best CPUs for gaming. Additionally, Ryzen 7000 X3D parts are expected to get even more from 3D V-Cache with potentially higher bandwidth, further enhancing performance in the aforementioned workloads and applications.
Launching three Ryzen 7000X3D models with 3D V-Cache and expanding the lineup of X3D CPUs for client PCs from one (for the Ryzen 5000 family) to three (for the Ryzen 7000 series) An interesting move by AMD.
On the one hand, expanding its family of 3D V-Cache-enabled desktop CPUs will likely strengthen AMD’s gaming offerings and democratize pricing, making it easier for AMD to compete with Intel. . But on the other hand, they overlap with processors without 3D V-Cache and eat away at some of the sales of high core count parts.
