AMD’s first round ‘Zen 4’ The Ryzen 7000 CPUs will be arriving very soon, with a September launch all but confirmed by Team Red ahead of their August 29 livestream event. But the most interesting for many players, YouTuber and leaker Moore’s law is dead (opens in new tab) (MLID) stated that we can expect to see the updated 3D V-Cache Ryzen 7000 chips in Q1 2023.
We already knew that AMD’s 3D V-Cache technology would be appearing in Ryzen 7000, but this leak gives us a bigger picture of what we can expect. According to MLID, AMD is preparing two chips: the Ryzen 7 7850X3D and the super-powerful Ryzen 9 7950X3D.
3D V-Cache technology is a boon for gamers as it allows AMD to ‘stack’ the L3 cache memory on the processor, which provides enhanced gaming performance. The first CPU to receive this technology was the Ryzen 7 5800X3Dwhich was incredibly able to outperform the more expensive Intel Core i9-12900K in some games thanks to its huge 100 MB cache.
Analysis: 3D V-Cache could solidify AMD’s position as the ‘gamer’s choice’ CPU
choosing the best processor for a gaming PC can be a tricky business. Your processor won’t have as big of an impact on gaming as your graphics card, naturally, but it can pose a performance bottleneck if it lags behind your other components, and some games (like real-time strategy titles) benefit from a CPU. superior more than others.
Price will obviously be key here, but if AMD’s 3D Ryzen chips are able to outperform Intel’s Raptor Lake CPUs in games, costing less, it will be a slam dunk for Team Red. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is already arguably the best choice for building a high-end gaming platform right now, so we can expect AMD to keep that momentum going for the second generation of 3D CPUs.
Intel i7-13700K is looking to provide some serious competition, with recently leaked benchmarks suggesting that Destroys Ryzen 7 7700X non 3D in synthetic tests. But the average gamer won’t worry about the number crunching performance; it’s all about the game’s framerates, and that’s where the 3D chips come into their own. We can’t wait to get our hands on them.
