The possibility of Ryzen 7000X3D Series processors burning out and killing themselves, as well as their accompanying AM5 motherboards, haven’t deterred AMD fans from upgrading to the company’s latest Zen 4 chips with 3D V-Cache. This is according to a new report from IT Media’s Yusuke Furuta, who went around a bunch of shops in Akihabara, Japan’s epicenter of electronics, and was told by at least one worker that sales of AMD’s hardware haven’t been affected by the controversy. That said, polls from personalities that include TechEpiphany, who describes himself as an “Intel/AMD/NVIDIA shill,” suggest that there are a good amount of people out there who think the criticism is justified.

From an IT Media report (machine translation):

In late April, there was a report that part of the Ryzen 7800X3D placed on the AMD X670E mother[board] by an overseas user was burned and damaged, which became a hot topic. When I asked each shop about the impact of this, I heard multiple comments such as “I received some questions ‘Are you okay?

Another shop said, “It seems that the manufacturer’s technical verification has been completed, and the customer’s reaction seems to be calm. The sales pace of the Ryzen 7000X3D series has not changed.”
