The Ryzen 7 5800X3D may not be the only Socket AM4 processor to be blessed with AMD’s 3D V-Cache technology. Greymon55 has shared a series of tweets that suggest AMD is planning to release additional Ryzen 5000 Series CPUs with 3D stacking technology, an interesting rumor for enthusiasts who aren’t planning to upgrade to AMD’s new AM5 platform straight away when it debuts later this year and would prefer to stick with the company’s tried-and-true, current-generation hardware. “There will also be new low-end AM4 products in the future,” Greymon55 tweeted, a claim that seems credible based on comments that AMD Chair and CEO Dr. Lisa Su made in May during her Computex 2022 keynote. Su said that AMD was planning to support the AM4 platform for “many years to come,” an indication that new variants of existing Ryzen parts could be on the way. AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D is now widely available at an MSRP of $449.99.

At the cutting edge of innovation and gaming performance, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor is the first Ryzen processor to feature AMD 3D V-Cache technology. With this industry-leading technology, the 5800X3D delivers 15% more gaming performance compared to processors without stacked cache technology1, making it the world’s most advanced desktop gaming processor2. AMD is also announcing a new stack of Ryzen 7, 5, and 3 Series processors and expanded chipset compatibility, giving PC enthusiasts even more options for creating truly customized gaming experiences.

  1. "New low-end AM4 products"

    There is no indication these chips would include 3D cache. 5800X3D is not low-end. As cool as it would be to get a 5600X3D or a 5950X3D, I don't see AMD cannabilizing their Zen4 sales.
  2. I kinda like this idea better than throwing DDR4 compatibility at Zen4. Perfect cheap upgrades for folks still on early Zen systems, and wouldn’t detract from higher end Zen4 systems
  3. They've previously confirmed they are going to produce new products for AM4. I wouldn't be surprised if they made a 5600X3D and 5950X3D. Or some variation of them. There are a lot of people still on 2000 and 3000 series processors that would benefit from those upgrades. And with inflation hitting they would be a cost effective upgrade at that.
