AMD promises some serious performance gains with its next-gen Ryzen 7000X3D processors. The chipmaker announced three V-Cache chips based on the Zen 4 core architecture with up to 16 cores and 32 threads. The stacked 3D cache size is the same as last-gen, but the boost clocks have been raised to 5.7GHz. Overclocking remains limited, and the base TDP has been raised to 120W.
|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|
The octa-core Ryzen 7 7800X3D is up to 30% faster than the 5800X3D with a minimum lead of 21% over the last-gen part. On average, it holds a lead of 24% over its predecessor at 1080p, using the “High” image quality preset.
The gaming performance of the Ryzen 9 7950X3D is something to behold. Per official first-party benchmarks, it outperforms the Intel Core i9-13900K by up to 24%. The deltas will vary from title to title, but overall, we can expect a lead of 15-20% over the 13900K.
