AMD introduced three new Zen 4 Ryzen 7000X3D processors for its AM5 platform at CES 2023, and at the moment it shared the pricing and availability for the Ryzen 7000X3D processors in a shock video it posted to its YouTube channel.
The primary two chips will arrive on February 28: The 16-core 32-thread 7950X3D at $699 and the 12-core 24-thread Ryzen 9 7900X3D that weighs in at $599. The eight-core, 16-thread Ryzen 7 7800X3D arrives on April 6 for $449.

|Ryzen 9 7950X3D||$699||16 / 32||4.2 / 5.7||144MB (16+128)||120W / 162W|
|Ryzen 9 7900X3D||$599||12 / 24||4.4 / 5.6||140MB (12+132)||120W / 162W|
|Ryzen 7 7800X3D||$449||8 /16||4.2 / 5.0||104MB (8+96)||120W / 162W|
|Ryzen 7 5800X3D||$358||8 /16||3.4 / 4.5||104MB (8+96)||105W|
The three new high-end Ryzen 7000X3D processors include the corporate’s revolutionary 3D V-Cache in chips that prime out at an unbelievable 5.7 GHz, a a lot greater peak enhance frequency than we noticed with the first-gen fashions. This now-proven tech might permit AMD to grab the highest spot in our checklist of greatest CPUs for gaming and our CPU benchmark hierarchy from Intel’s potent Raptor Lake once they arrive in February.
The brand new high-performance AMD chips are available 8-, 12- and 16-core flavors, considerably increasing the lineup of 3D V-Cache chips over the eight-core Ryzen 7 5800X3D mannequin that arrived because the lone first-gen X3D mannequin. AMD claims explosive generational efficiency features with these new chips, saying they are going to beat Intel’s quickest gaming chip by as much as 24% in some video games.

As a reminder, AMD’s 3D V-Cache makes use of a vertically 3D-stacked SRAM chip that sits on prime of the processor die, thus boosting the L3 cache capability by 64MB and enabling explosive efficiency features in gaming (productiveness workloads don’t profit). This tech debuted in AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D, the primary ‘X3D’ mannequin that took the highest of our gaming charts upon its launch. Intel doesn’t have comparable expertise, however it lately launched the 6 GHz Core i9-13900KS to assist maintain off AMD’s new fashions.

We’ll get to the detailed specs under, however first, AMD shared some efficiency benchmarks at CES 2023. These charts have an unlabeled axis, so take them with salt. AMD confirmed efficiency leads to 4 titles which can be typically CPU sure, so the advantages of the X3D structure shine by, significantly on the 1080p decision used for testing.
AMD claims the 16-core 7950X3D is anyplace from 13% to 24% quicker than the Intel flagship Core i9-13900K in these titles.
The Ryzen 7 7800X3D additionally seems potent, with AMD’s benchmarks exhibiting it anyplace from 21% to 30% quicker than the previous-gen Ryzen 7 5800X3D on this choice of titles. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is an excellent gaming processor, however it suffers tremendously in utility benchmarks. That tradeoff seems to be drastically decreased with the 7950X3D, as AMD claims that it’s anyplace from 4% to 52% quicker than the Core i9-13900K in a choice of productiveness benchmarks.
The Ryzen 9 7950X3D comes with 16 cores and 32 threads, marking a brand new excessive core rely for the 3D V-Cache-equipped chips. The 7950X3D is principally a Ryzen 9 7950X with an additional L3 cache chiplet and extra tuning. The X3D variant arrives on the similar MSRP because the launch value for the ‘vanilla’ 7950X, which has seen steep value cuts of late.
The 3D-stacked L3 chip is 64MB, so the 7950X3D comes with 144MB of whole cache, and 128MB of that’s gaming-boosting L3 cache. This chip will deal with Intel’s Core i9-13900K and the 6 GHz 13900KS mannequin.
AMD has spec’d the 3D V-Cache processors at a base TPD of 120W and a max 162W PPT, which is decrease than the usual 170W/230W threshold for the 7950X. That isn’t totally stunning, as the extra cache chiplet may end up in barely greater working temperatures. AMD recommends a minimal of a 280mm AIO watercooler for all 7000X3D fashions.
Regardless, AMD has considerably elevated the enhance speeds with the brand new X3D fashions. Consequently, the 7950X3D boosts to five.7 GHz, an unlimited leap over the earlier gen 5800X3D’s peak of 4.5 GHz and the identical as the usual 7950X. We see a slight decline of 200 MHz in comparison with the 7950X, a essential lodging for the decrease 120W TDP.
The 7950X3D’s greater clock fee implies that we gained’t see as a lot of a tradeoff in productiveness apps with the brand new Zen 4 fashions, decreasing a notable weak point of the first-gen 5800X3D mannequin. Nevertheless, the brand new X3D fashions do have a 50W discount in out there energy in comparison with the usual Ryzen 7000 fashions, which can have an effect on threaded workloads.
Frequencies are greater for all three new X3D chips. The 12-core 24-thread Ryzen 9 7900X3D peaks at 5.6 GHz, the identical as the usual 7900X, whereas base clocks decline a comparatively minor 300 MHz (it’s uncommon to see the bottom clock in precise use). This chip comes armed with 104MB of cache, with 96 MB carved out as L3. This chip additionally drops to the decrease 120W TDP vary, so it should additionally lose some efficiency in heavily-threaded purposes.
The 7950X3D and the 7900X3D have two eight-core CCD chiplets, marking the primary time that AMD has introduced this tech to a multi-CCD processor. Nevertheless, the SRAM chiplet is barely positioned on one of many CCDs.
The Ryzen 7 7800X3D is a single-CCD chip and corresponding to the first-gen Ryzen 7 5800X3D, however it comes with the a lot quicker Zen 4 structure. The 8-core 16-thread 7800X3D has 96MB of L3 cache, the identical core rely and cache capability as its Zen 3 predecessor. The 7800X3D has a base clock of 4.2 and a 5.0 GHz enhance, each of that are greater than the 5800X3D’s 3.4 GHz base and 4.5 GHz enhance.
The 7800X3D additionally has a 120W TDP, 15W greater than the 5800X3D and the current-gen eight-core Ryzen 7 7700X. These quicker clocks and better TDP paired with the extra fashionable Zen 4 structure will yield efficiency boosts over the 5800X3D.
This Ryzen 7 7800X3D would be the chip to beat, as it should provide the lion’s share of the X3D’s gaming uplift, however include the lightest price ticket of the three. Due to this fact, it is no shock that AMD will launch this chip final to maximise gross sales of the pricier fashions. This chip arrives on April 6.
AMD additionally has an accompanying weblog submit. As you’d think about, third-party benchmarks will come quickly. Keep tuned.
