AMD is planning to announce at least three Ryzen 7000X3D Series processors relatively soon, according to a new video shared by South Korea’s Quasarzone and tweets from All The Watts!! that allude to the release of the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and Ryzen 7 7800X3D, new CPUs featuring red team’s innovative 3D stacking technology for enabling what should be improved performance in gaming and other applications.

As suggested by All The Watts!!, all three of these processors will purportedly be announced at CES 2023 ahead of a March release and feature a TDP of 170 watts, just like their standard counterparts, which are currently available at a discount as part of AMD’s ongoing holiday promotions:

  • Ryzen 9 7950X3D: 16 MB L2, 192 MB L3, 170 watts
  • Ryzen 9 7900X3D: 12 MB L2, 192 MB L3, 170 watts
  • Ryzen 7 7800X3D: 8 MB L2, 96 MB L3, 170 watts

The Ryzen 7000X3D Series will supposedly feature the same (or very similar) clock speeds as their standard counterparts and offer the same level of performance improvement that can be gleaned between the Ryzen 7 5800X3D and Ryzen 7 5800X, as noted in the tweets above, but further translations provided by @harukaze5719 suggest that the Ryzen 7 7800X3D naming isn’t final and that it may be released as the Ryzen 7 7700X3D:

The Ryzen 7 5800X3D, the first desktop processor with stacked L3 cache (96 MB), offers 15% faster gaming on average at 1080p High settings versus the Ryzen 9 5900X, according to benchmarks that can be found on the landing page for AMD’s Ryzen 5000 Series processors.

AMD confirmed in September that Dr. Lisa Su, AMD Chair and CEO, will deliver an in-person keynote address at CES 2023 on Wednesday, January 4, 2023, at 6:30 p.m. in the Venetian’s Palazzo Ballroom.

CES 2023 will take place in Las Vegas on January 5-8, 2023, with Media Days taking place January 3-4, 2023.

As for the Radeon RX 7000 Series, Quasarzone has claimed that stock is “extremely low,” as translated by @harukaze5719, with AIB models not releasing until the end of Q4.
