Possible Ryzen 7000X3D Launching This Year

AMD might be releasing a 3D cache line of Ryzen 7000 series processors as early as Q4 this year with minimum of 100MB of 3D stacked cache.

Earlier this week, reputable leaker Greymon55 stated that AMD’s packaging factory in China has already begun mass production of Ryzen 7000X3D chips, with the codename Raphael-X.

It is possible that they may launch in Q4 this year, just one quarter after the Ryzen 7000 series are set to launch. The current predicted Ryzen 7000 SKUs are as follows:

So far AMD has yet to give us official specs, so the above must be taken as just an estimate. There have also been rumors that the Ryzen 9 might reach speeds of 5.7GHz.

Ryzen 7950X specifications

AMD’s first 3D cached CPU on Zen 3 was to test the 3D V-cache technology, which is evident by the lack of overclocking. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D has a max clock of 4.5GHz, compared to the Ryzen 7 5800X reaching 4.7GHz. There are hopes that the Raphael-X line will improve on this and still reach high clock speeds with 3D V-cache. The Raphael-X SKUs will likely comprise of the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D and a hex-core Ryzen 5 7600X3D.

With their new 5nm process and 3D V-Cache, it is very likely that AMD will continue to dominate the gaming scene and will surpass Intel in CPU sales before too long.
