AMD Ryzen 7 5700X3D and 5500X3D Allegedly Launching Soon with 96MB of L3 Cache

AMD allegedly plans to launch additional 3D V-Cache CPUs for the AM4 platform. According to @g01d3nm4ng0 (a well-reputed source), Team Red will soon roll out two budget Ryzen 5000X3D chips with 96MB of L3 cache. Earlier this year, AMD released the Ryzen 5 5600X3D exclusively via Microcenter. The CPU launched at $229 but has dropped to just $199 last we checked.

The Ryzen 5 5500X3D will be a lower-binned variant of the 5600X3D. Both chips feature six cores and 96MB of L3 cache (32MB +64MB), the difference being the operating clocks. The 5600X3D has a peak boost clock of 4.4GHz, while the 5500X3D will be limited to just 4GHz. A 400MHz gap in the boost clocks should be enough to inject a small performance delta between them.

The Ryzen 7 5700X3D will be a lower-binned variant of the 5800X3D. They share the same core counts and cache, but the boost clocks on the former will be limited to 4.1GHz, down from 4.5GHz on the latter. Like the 5600X3D and 5800X3D, the 5500X3D and the 5700X3D should be compatible with all AM4 boards, ranging from the A320 to the X570.
