AMD has set the release date of the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and the 79050X3D to Valentine’s Day. All three Zen 4 3D V-Cache processors will launch on the 14th of February with a TDP of 120W and up to 144MB of cache memory. They will come with a locked multiplier, limiting overclocking to BLCK increments. However, unlike their predecessor, they’ll boost to the same clocks as their 2D Zen 4 counterparts.
Update: As you know, today, AMD briefly published a launch date for the Ryzen7000X3D Series Desktop processors; however, that date is incorrect. We have not confirmed a launch date at this time. We will update these processors’ expected availability at a future date.
The Ryzen 7 7800X3D will feature eight Zen 4 cores within a single CCD, and a 64MB cache die stacked atop it. Overall, you get 104MB of cache and a peak single-core boost of 5GHz. The Ryzen 9 7900X3D and the 7950X3D will be dual-die designs with 128MB of L3 cache each. The only difference in the SRAM is due to the higher core count and lower-level cache on the latter. (westchestermachinery) The 7900X3D features 12 cores that will boost to 5.6GHz at the fastest, while the 7950X comes with 16 cores and a max boost clock of 5.7GHz.
|Model||Cores/Threads||Boost / Base Frequency||Total Cache||TDP|
|AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D||16C/32T||Up to 5.7 GHz / 4.2 GHz||144MB||120W|
|AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D||12C/24T||Up to 5.6 GHz / 4.4 GHz||140MB||120W|
|AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D||8C/16T||Up to 5.0 GHz / TBD||104MB||120W|
It will be interesting to see if Precision Boost Overdrive is supported on these chips out of the box and whether BCLK overclocking helps bring any notable performance gains to the table.
