Not so long ago, AMD revealed new Ryzen 7000 processors with a lower TDP at 65W. Now the company is ready for more announcements. This time, AMD has shown a trio of Ryzen 7000 chips with a 3D V-Cache that should deliver a notably better performance in games and applications.
The new processors include the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and Ryzen 7 7800X3D. Most of their specs are identical to the non-3D counterparts, except for TPD and the amount of cache. Ryzen 7000 3D models feature 120W TDP (50W lower than non-3D variants) and a significantly bigger 3D V-Cache.
Here are the specs:
|Cores||Base Clock||Boost Clock||iGPU||Cache||TDP||Price|
|Ryzen 9 7950X3D||16C/32T||4.2GHz||5.7GHz||2-core AMD Radeon||144MB||120W||$699|
|Ryzen 9 7900X3D||12C/24T||4.4GHz||5.6GHz||140MB||$599|
|Ryzen 7 7800X3D||8C/16T||N/A||5.0GHz||104MB||$449|
Interestingly, despite delivering a notable performance boost (AMD says the Ryzen 9 7950X beats the Intel Core i9-13900K in games), the new models with 3D V-Cache are priced the same as their “regular” counterparts at launch. Non-3D Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, and Ryzen 7 7800X will now be significantly cheaper.
The AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D will go on sale on February 28, 2023. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D will be available on April 6, 2023. All three models come with a free copy of the Star Wars Jedi Survivor game.
