The AMD Ryzen 7000X3D series is expected to be officially unveiled at CES2023 as PC enthusiasts anxiously await the successor to the 5800X3D. The AMD Ryzen 5800X3D debuted in 2022 with its 96MB 3D-stacked L3 cache. The new design allowed the 8C/16T processor to trade blows in gaming with the Intel i9-12900KS flagship Alder-Lake S processor despite it costing hundreds of dollars less. For gaming, it still manages to do well against the Intel i9-13900K and has even provided competition for AMD’s newest Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” CPUs. AMD recently released its Ryzen 7000 series processors but an X3D model was noticeably absent and now a leaked slide shows it will be released in 2023. WccfTech has obtained a slide, and confirmation about the upcoming unveiling of these next 3D V-Cache processors.
AMD will reportedly be releasing two AMD Ryzen 7000X3D series processors for the AM5 platform. One will be aimed at PC enthusiasts while the other is intended for gaming. It is also said that voltage and overclocking restrictions could be less limited with these but their stock clocks will still be lower than the non-3d V-cache counterparts. Overclocking for the 5800X3D, while possible, was not recommended but these new Zen 4 5mm processors could have a bit more headroom. There’s still no official word from AMD regarding more X3D variants for its long-lived AM4 platform but a recently leaked slide did show production continuing throughout 2023.
