Ryzen 7000 3D V-Cache CPUs May Offer Even More Bandwidth Than First-Gen Counterparts

According to a semiconductor engineer’s tweet, Tom Wasick (opens in new tab) It looks like the Ryzen 7000 processors have received some upgrades in preparation for upcoming SKUs with 3D V-Cache. Wassick reportedly spotted more TSV columns in the Zen 4 CCD and this upgrade allows for greater V-Cache bandwidth than the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, one of his best CPUs for gaming. It has been suggested that this may be possible.

More specifically, Ryzen 7000 chips will have two much larger and denser arrays with some reduced pitch and additional TSV rows, Wasik says. It means that the 3D V-Cache slab has more contact area with the CPU, which means more L3 cache bandwidth and potentially extra power.
