There are rumors that AMD will launch their Ryzen 7000X3D 3D V-Cache CPUs in three different flavors: 16, 12, and 8 cores.
According to QuasarZone (@Harukaze5719), the rumor claims that the AMD Ryzen 7000X3D 3D V-Cache lineup will have at least three different product variants (SKUs).
Earlier rumors suggested that there would be an 8-core and 6-core variant, but the most recent rumor suggests that there won’t be any 6-core variant in the lineup. Instead, the family will have three SKUs, which will feature 16 Core, 12 Core, and 8 Core variants.
Based on the number of cores, we may anticipate that the lineup will have the following naming schemes (all of which are speculative):
- Ryzen 9 7950X3D 16-Core (2-CCD)
- Ryzen 9 7900X3D 12-Core (2-CCD)
- Ryzen 7 7800X3D or Ryzen 7 7700X3D 8-Core (1-CCD)
If AMD were to keep the same 64 MB per chipset stacking design as the first-gen 3D V-Cache chips, then the Ryzen 7000X3D parts would end up with up to 192 MB of L3 cache for the 2-CCD and 96 MB of L3 cache for the 1-CCD SKUs. This would be the case if the 1-CCD Ryzen 7000X3D SKUs were equipped with a single chipset stacking design.
Compared to the Non-X3D portions, the amount of L3 cache the chip has access to has increased by a factor of three.
The news outlet has revealed additional information, which suggests that the AMD Ryzen 7000X3D 3D V-Cache CPU family will feature clock speeds that are close to or similar to those of the non-3D parts. When compared to the non-3D SKU, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D had a base clock that was 400 MHz lower and a boost clock that was 200 MHz lower.
Regarding multi-core and single-core performance, upcoming 3D V-Cache parts that keep their clock speeds the same will be a huge plus. However, these parts won’t be able to help with applications that can’t benefit from the additional cache.
Another feature that the V-Cache CPU of the previous generation, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, did not have was support for overclocking. Additionally, to conserve power draw (voltages), it came with a lower base clock speed than the non-V-Cache components.
Although it is anticipated that the clock speeds of the Zen 4 V-Cache CPUs will be slower than those of the standard non-V-Cache components, these CPUs will operate at significantly higher speeds, and the difference between their clock speeds and those of the standard non-V-Cache components will not be as pronounced as it was this time around.
Additionally, we were able to get confirmation from our sources that the power ratings for all 3D V-Cache SKUs will be 170W. Therefore, it appears that the Ryzen 7 7800X3D name will make a great deal more sense, but the ultimate naming scheme has not yet been decided upon.
Regarding the release of these chips, it has been speculated that the AMD Ryzen 7000X3D 3D V-Cache will be presented to the public in January 2023. This aligns with our exclusive, which indicated a CES 2023 time frame.
Consider that the chips won’t be made public until the event above and that the launch won’t occur until much later.
