AMD’s new Ryzen 7000X3D Series processors may support some level of manual overclocking on an official level after all. As seen on AMD.com, the product pages for the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and Ryzen 7 7800X3D have all been updated with the specification that they’re “unlocked for overclocking.” This is absent from the product page for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which AMD released in April 2022 without official support for overclocking, although that’s possible via means that include MSI’s Kombo Strike feature.
“AMD tells us that the Curve Optimizer will work best to extract more performance, but both options are available. However, AMD will not allow direct frequency overclocking due to a 1.4V limit for the chip (this was a 1.1V limit with the previous-gen model),” reads a report from last month that suggested the Ryzen 7000X3D Series would not support traditional, manual overclocking.
AMD hasn’t shared a release date for its Ryzen 7000X3D Series processors but has promised that they’ll be available beginning next month.
