3D V-Cache Arrives on the AM5 Platform
Intel has enjoyed a favorable position in the desktop gaming space so far this generation, but AMD now has an option which they say is faster than the Core i9-13900K. In AMD CEO Lisa Su’s presentation last night, the new processors are being called the “fastest gaming processors in the world”. How did they do it? Why, with 3D V-Cache, of course!
As much as we have heard the “wait for X3D” refrain since the Ryzen 7000 launch in September, we anticipate these new Ryzen 7000 Series X3D parts to be very popular. As you probably know, AMD ended up discounting their new processors amid what seems to be lackluster adoption of the AM5 platform, and X3D is exactly what AMD needed to make this a more attractive upgrade.
AMD announced the addition of three new Ryzen X3D processors – the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D and Ryzen 7 7800X3D – bringing the power of AMD 3D V-Cache technology to the Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processor lineup1. Now, the ultimate processors for both gamers and creators comes packaged in a single chip.
These new Ryzen 7000X3D are the fastest gaming processors in the world.4 With up to 14% faster performance than the previous generation.6 The AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors with 3D V-Cache technology will be available for Socket AM5 starting February 2023.
As quoted above, the new processors are the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and Ryzen 9 7950X3D, and they have some interesting specifications – with the monstrous levels of cache the main attraction.
