Recently, AMD provided an update that the Ryzen 7000 X3D CPUs will not launch on Valentine’s Day. The specified date in the spec sheet was an error on their part. The CPUs have not been canceled. Simply put, the date is not confirmed as of now.
“As you know, today AMD.com briefly published a launch date for the Ryzen 7000X3D Series Desktop processors; however, that date is incorrect. We have not confirmed a launch date at this time. We will provide updates on the expected availability of these processors at a future date”
OC3D has confirmed the launch date of AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 7000 X3D CPUs. At CES, team red went ahead and showcased its Zen4 Non-X and mobile offerings. The announcement of Zen4-X3D was quite unexpected but AMD gave us a time window of sometime in February. Today, it is now officially confirmed that the Ryzen 7000 X3D series will arrive on Valentine’s Day which falls on 14th February.
Ryzen 7000 X3D Arriving Next Month
AMD has decided to give us a treat on Valentine’s Day by launching the next-gen Zen4-X3D CPUs. Team red gave us a glimpse of what these CPUs offer in comparison to last-gen and even Intel’s Raptor Lake at CES. Read our detailed coverage about that here.
The Ryzen 7000 X3D family will arrive in three different flavors. First is the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, the Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and the Ryzen 9 7950X3D. The cache configuration has changed slightly in contrast to what we originally thought. The higher-end SKUs with more than 8 cores feature AMD’s signature stacked V-Cache on only one CCX, as compared to two. This leads to a slight reduction in the cache but does come with its own benefits.
Now the heterogeneous cache approach is new and will likely encounter scheduling problems. However, AMD is working with Microsoft to optimize performance.
Lineup & Specs
The Ryzen 9 7950X3D packs 16 cores / 32 threads and a massive 144MB of total cache. This is a slight decrease from the 192MB, we speculated before, but still, 1.8x more than the base 7950X. This CPU will have an extremely fast 5.7GHz boost with a 4.2GHz base frequency. After that is the Ryzen 9 7900X3D with 12 cores / 24 threads and 140MB of total cache. The base and boost frequency for this CPU stands at 4.4GHz and 5.6GHz.
From the Ryzen 7 family, AMD has launched one X3D CPU namely the Ryzen 7 7800X3D which is packed with 8 cores and 16 threads. This CPU offers a slightly slower max frequency of 5GHz, with the base frequency lying in the 4-5GHz range.
Termed ‘The Ultimate Gaming Processors‘, the Ryzen 7000X3D CPUs will be available starting February 14 2023.
