During the announcement of desktop Ryzen 7000X3D, developers outlined the general capabilities of future chips, the composition of the line and highlighted the key technical characteristics of the CPU. A little later, AMD revealed certain nuances and technological features of new processors with a multilayer layout. However, until now, the question of starting sales of models with an increased L3 cache buffer remained hanging in the air. The initially determined reference point was rather vague – February 2023.
According to the information from Overclock3D and some other resources, today AMD’s official website had information about the start date sales of Ryzen 7000X3D – February 14. Obviously, this would be a nice gift from AMD to all the passionate gamers who are looking forward to putting together the ultimate gaming platform. But later, the mention of “Launch Date” on the website disappeared altogether. No fun… But it will definitely be there anyway.
AMD promises that Ryzen 7000X3D will be the best chips specifically for gaming systems. The large capacity of L3 in many cases significantly affects the number of fps. And according to this indicator, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D is ready to challenge the Intel Core i9-13900K. At least on the demonstration charts, everything looks convincing, but the actual state of affairs will be known only on the eve of the start of sales, after independent testing. Unfortunately, we won’t know the recommended prices for the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and Ryzen 7 7800X3D until around the same time. So far, AMD has not announced the cost of the new models with 3D V-Cache.
