AMD will announce its Zen 4-based 3D V-Cache processors at CES 2023 next January, thereby retaking the gaming crown from Raptor Lake. A report from WCCFTech claims that Team Red will launch more than one Ryzen 7000X3D CPU this New Year with increased boost clocks and 3x L3 cache. The 5800X3D was launched earlier this year and has managed to hold onto the bestselling charts courtesy of its leadership gaming performance.
It should deliver unprecedented gaming performance at affordable pricing when paired with the higher clocks and IPC of Zen 4. AMD intends to launch more than one V-Cache SKU this time, possibly the Ryzen 9 7900X3D and 7950X3D in addition to the 7800X3D. The original plan was to unveil (if not launch) the Zen 4D family in late 2023, but it looks like the roadmap has shifted.
AMD briefly retook the gaming crown from Intel with the launch of its Ryzen 7000 CPUs. However, today’s Raptor Lake launch has put the latter firmly back in control. Nothing short of next-gen 3D stacked CPUs will be enough to undo that. Like its predecessor, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D and its siblings will come with incredible power efficiency while featuring better support for overclocking and voltage curve tuning.
A while back, a Ryzen 7 58003D was spotted running at 5.5 GHz without any firmware tweak. And this was done using traditional multiplier increases rather than BCLK tweaking. While it’s unclear how this was achieved, it indicates that overclocking may be fully supported by Raphael-X.
