The AMD Ryzen 7000 X3D is the latest addition to AMD’s Ryzen line of processors, offering unparalleled performance, cutting-edge features, and advanced technology. Whether you’re a gamer, content creator, or power user, the Ryzen 7000 X3D is sure to impress with its outstanding performance and advanced capabilities.
All of these CPUs are successors to the original Ryzen 7 5800X3D, and their sales pitch is similar. AMD is stacking 64MB of additional L3 cache on top of the regular Ryzen 7000 CPUs, which can provide a big performance bump for software (like games) that is especially sensitive to cache sizes and speeds.
Key Features and Specifications:
High-performance cores: The Ryzen 7000 X3D is built with advanced cores that deliver unbeatable performance and speed, making it an ideal choice for demanding applications like gaming and content creation.
Advanced cache system: The Ryzen 7000 X3D features a sophisticated cache system that delivers lightning-fast data access and improved performance.
Support for latest memory and I/O technologies: With support for the latest DDR5 memory and PCI Express 4.0 technology, the Ryzen 7000 X3D is designed to deliver the fastest and most responsive performance possible.
Improved gaming performance: With its advanced cores and advanced cache system, the Ryzen 7000 X3D delivers lightning-fast frame rates and reduced input lag, making it the ideal choice for gamers who demand the best.
Faster application load times: With its powerful performance and advanced technology, the Ryzen 7000 X3D can load applications faster and more smoothly, making it ideal for power users who need to work quickly and efficiently.
Enhanced multitasking capabilities: With its advanced cores and advanced cache system, the Ryzen 7000 X3D is designed to handle multiple tasks at once, allowing you to work, play, and create like never before.
These prices are actually not all that much higher than the launch prices for the original Ryzen 7000 CPUs back in August—the 7950X3D has the same launch price as the 7950X, and the 7900X3D and 7800X3D are only $50 more expensive than their counterparts. But prices have come down a lot since then; the 7950X usually costs between $550 and $600 now, and non-X-series CPUs like the Ryzen 7 7700 and Ryzen 9 7950 are even cheaper. The X3D chips’ prices will eventually come down, too, but they’re still significantly more expensive than the versions without the extra cache.
But the X3D chips still don’t support typical overclocking features available in the rest of the Ryzen CPUs, nor do they support changing the CPUs’ default 120 W TDP limits. This may further limit the performance of the 12- and 16-core CPUs in apps that don’t care about cache—the 7900X and 7950X have a default TDP of 170 W, which lets them run faster for longer. The Ryzen 5800X3D also ran hotter than other Ryzen CPUs, but Ryzen 7000’s baseline temperatures are already fairly toasty, so we’ll need to test them to compare.
AMD says the new CPUs will require a socket AM5 motherboard with an updated BIOS and chipset driver, and the company also “recommends using at least a 280mm all-in-one liquid cooler for the best performance.”
