WCCFTech, citing an internal roadmap, said that AMD has planned to launch the Ryzen 7000 X3D series AM5 desktop processors based on the Zen 4 architecture and 3D V-Cache stacking cache during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2023) early next year. Given that the Ryzen R7-5800X3D, which is the first to test 3D V-Cache in the consumer CPU market, is still the number one product in the field of PC gaming chips (even without fear of Intel’s 13th-generation Raptor Lake competitors), we are even more excited about the new Zen 4 architecture. full of anticipation.
AMD had earlier said that the Ryzen 7000 CPUs with 3D V-Cache technology would be unveiled later this year during the FAD 2022 conference, but the plans still haven’t kept up with the changes.
"Saeid Moshkelani, AMD senior vice president and general manager of the Client Division, pointed out that the R7-5800X3D is the best gaming processor on the market, and there is no 'one'. We're proud of what V-Cache technology brings to the table and will be adopting it later this year, as well as in the next generation of Ryzen 7000 series CPUs."
The Zen 4 Ryzen 7000-series AM5 processors have been compared to 12th-gen Alder Lake until Intel’s 13th-gen Raptor Lake rivals hit the market.
Embarrassingly, the first Ryzen 7000 series CPU models without 3D V-Cache blessing also face competition from their own AM4 SKUs (such as R7-5800X3D).
As for the AM5 3D V-Cache processor that AMD intends to bring during CES 2023, it is said that there will be one more model than the AM4 platform – one for enthusiasts and the other for mainstream gamers.
By the way, one of the big regrets of the previous generation Zen 3 / V-Cache processors was the lack of support for overclocking features. And in order to reduce power consumption (voltage curve), AMD even lowered the voltage of the R7-5800X3D a bit compared to the non-V-Cache SKU.
The good news is that while the Zen 4/V-Cache parts are still less clocked than the non-V-Cache models, the Ryzen 7000X3D is expected to at least ease the voltage constraints, further closing the performance gap between clock rates.
