AMD Ryzen 7000X3D CPUs to Feature Improved Thermals/Heat Dissipation, Higher Boost Clocks of up to 5GHz [Rumor]

AMD plans on launching its Ryzen 7000 processors next month, followed by the 3D V-Cache-powered 7000X3D chips two months later. In addition to featuring multiple SKUs, we are poised to get higher boost clocks, better thermals, and a wider availability as production lines have been expanded and fine-tuned. The base packaging technology is still the same with the L3 cache die stacked upon the CCD but the interconnects will likely be improved.


The only member of the Zen 3D family, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D consists of eight cores, twelve threads, and a base/boost clock of 3.4GHz/4.5GHz. In comparison, the 5800X has a base clock of 3.8GHz and a boost of 4.7GHz. The additional 64MB L3 cache tile worsens heat dissipation, preventing overclocking and lowering effective boost clocks.

The Ryzen 7000X3D lineup will be composed of at least two or more models, each featuring a boost clock of 4.8GHz to 5GHz, 300-500MHz higher than the 5800X3D. One of them will likely rock a single L3 cache die while the other two, each atop a CCD.
