AMD’s Ryzen 7000X3D gaming processor finally has two release dates. The Ryzen 9 7900X3D and 7950X3D will debut on his February 28th and the 7800X3D will arrive on his April 6th.
AMD also announced pricing for its new CPUs. The 8-core 7800X3D is $449, the 12-core 7900X3D is $599, and the 16-core 7950X3D is $699. For context, the original 8-, 12-, and 16-core Ryzen 7000 models had suggested retail prices of $399, $549, and $699 respectively, so this is a $50 premium at most when looking at the suggested retail price. The Ryzen 7000 model debuted last September.
All three X3D CPUs have been highly anticipated since their launch. Announced just after the new yearbecause it combines the new features of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 series, an efficient 5nm process, a more powerful socket, generally good performance – 3D V-Cache design that turns the ordinary 5800X into the ridiculously powerful Ryzen 5800X3D. By tripling the chip’s L3 cache, the 5800X3D was able to compete with Ryzen 7000 and Intel’s 12th and 13th gen designs in many games, but with older DDR4 memory and the venerable AM4 socket. was bound to This makes his X3D version of the Ryzen 7000 a very attractive prospect for extreme gaming performance.
The arrival of AMD’s 65W non-X CPUs in early January has seen a rapid expansion of the Ryzen 7000 lineup. This will ensure that most people have a good choice available. A 65W CPU offers essentially the same performance at a lower price. Testing the Ryzen 5 7600, making it ideal for budget-conscious builds. Meanwhile, these new X3D options should offer the best gaming performance out of the lineup. So the original launch model plays a smaller role, essentially offering slightly better performance at higher power targets than the non-X version, but still potentially suitable for content creation workloads. there is. Prices are higher than their non-X counterparts as retailers try to clear out old inventory.

Performance on AMD’s side has been excellent since this generation, but sales have reportedly been sluggish due to the move to the new AM5 socket, which requires both DDR5 RAM and newer X670/670E or B650/650E motherboards. increase. These remain expensive, The latest generation 5800X3D is a great value Paired with cheap and readily available DDR4 RAM and AM4 motherboards, it’s a huge improvement over previous Ryzen designs.
Still, new sockets and faster RAM should push these new X3D chips well beyond the capabilities of the 5800X3D, and could also help AMD regain the gaming crown from Intel’s 13900K. . be able to Of course, we aim to test these new CPUs ourselves.
