AMD’s Ryzen 7 7800X3D has been out for barely a week and has already topped the bestsellers chart across many retailers. At Mindfactory (Germany’s largest component store), the octa-core 3D V-Cache CPU sold 1,860 units during its debut week, making everything else look redundant. This is the most successful launch since the R7 5800X3D itself.
The Ryzen 7 7800X3D features eight Zen 4 cores with 32MB of 2D and 64MB of 3D L3 cache. The CPU has a base clock of 4.2GHz and a boost of 5GHz. Like its predecessor, it has a locked multiplier, limiting overclocking, and a lower power envelope (120W vs. 170W on the R9 7900X).
The octa-core X3D sold 1,860 units this week, 11 times more than the most popular Intel chip, the Core i7-13700K, which sold a mere 170 units. The Ryzen 7 7700X was the popular Zen 4 part, selling 190 units the same week. Meanwhile, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D sold 1,070 units, 40% less than the Ryzen 7 7800X3D.
Intel’s 13th Gen Raptor Lake lineup racked in 690 sales, a third as much as the Ryzen 7 7800X3D. The Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” family sold 510 units overall. The X3D sold almost four times more than that in the first week of April. Looking at these numbers, it’s clear that the 3D V-Cache parts are becoming vital to AMD’s DIY arsenal. It’ll be interesting to see if Team Red designs a hex-core V-Cache processor based on the Ryzen 7 7600X.
