AMD will launch its first Ryzen 7000X3D processors on the last day of Feb. Leveraging the second-generation 3D V-Cache technology, these chips will boast boost clocks of up to 5.7GHz, the same as the regular Zen 4 parts. The higher-end Ryzen 9 7900X3D and 7950X3D SKUs will hit retail at the end of the month for a price of $599, and $699, respectively. Meanwhile, the budget Ryzen 7 7800X3D will be released after two months from now in April.
|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|
AMD has informed us that all AM5 motherboards will be compatible with the Ryzen 7000X3D processors post a BIOS update. Furthermore, the chipmaker recommends an AIO liquid cooled solution with a 280mm radiator for its V-Cache offerings.
The Zen 4 3D family will have the same boost clocks as their vanilla variants but will come with a locked multiplier, limiting core overclocking. Memory and fabric overclocking, however, will remain untouched. Precision Boost Overdrive and Curve Optimization have also been added to these processors.
