AMD Announces Ryzen 7 7800X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D and 7950X3D: Up to 30% Faster than 5800X3D, Coming in Feb 23

At CES 2023, AMD announced the three new Ryzen X3D processors: Ryzen 9 7950X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and Ryzen 7 7800X3D. Featuring the second-generation V-Cache technology, the chipmaker promises a performance boost of up to 30% over the preceding lineup. The cache size is the same as last-gen, but the boost clocks have been raised to 5.7GHz. A total of three SKUs are planned, namely the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and the 7950X3D (based on the 7700X, 7900X, and 7950X).

All three X3D chips come with a base TDP of 120W with locked multipliers, limiting overclocking. Official decks claim a gaming performance boost of 20-30% over the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, with Dota 2 delivering a 30% gain at 1080p “High Quality” settings.

AMD also introduced non-X parts, including the Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700, and Ryzen 5 7600. Built on the same dies as their X counterparts, they drop the TDP to 65W and come with a bundled Wraith cooler. Precision Boost Overdrive promises to boost clocks and performance by up to 39% in water-cooled scenarios. The processors announced today are expected to be available starting January 10.
