Announced at the turn of the year, AMD is releasing a trio of 3D V-Cache-enabled processors based on the latest Zen 4 technology. We now know pricing and availability, which is as follows:
How Ryzen 7000 Series X3D Models Stack Up
|Model||Cores / Threads||TDP||L3 Cache||Base Clock||Boost Clock||Launch MSRP|
|Ryzen 9 7950X3D||16 / 32||120W||128MB||4.2GHz||5.7GHz||$699|
|Ryzen 9 7950X||16 / 32||170W||64MB||4.7GHz||5.7GHz||$699|
|Ryzen 9 7900X3D||12 / 24||120W||128MB||4.4GHz||5.6GHz||$599|
|Ryzen 9 7900X||12 / 24||170W||64MB||4.7GHz||5.6GHz||$549|
|Ryzen 7 7800X3D||8 / 16||120W||96MB||TBC||5.0GHz||$449|
|Ryzen 7 7700X||8 / 16||105W||32MB||4.5GHz||5.4GHz||$399|
|Ryzen 5 7600X||6 / 12||105W||32MB||4.7GHz||5.3GHz||$299|
Ryzen 9 7950X3D and Ryzen 7 7900X3D are coming to retail on February 28, priced at $699 and $599, respectively. It’s good to see AMD not increase the price of the best model, which remains at $699, most likely due to the $689 charged for rival Intel Core i9-13900KS.
Knowing these prices for Ryzen 9 X3D, one would assume regular chips will drop in price, and we expect 7950X and 7900X decrease to $599 and $499, respectively.
Ryzen 7 7800X3D, meanwhile, is coming on April 6 at $449. Pricing makes sense as it bisects Ryzen 7700X and Ryzen 9 7900X. Primed for gaming more so than content creation, we expect AMD to regain fps supremacy in certain titles, though how it all shakes it is open to conjecture. We also still don’t know if the multipliers are unlocked on X3D parts; if you remember, Ryzen 7 5800X3D arrived in a locked state, ostensibly to protect the extra cache from overheating.
Excited? We are.
