AMD Will Bring Improved Gaming Performance In Early 2023 With Ryzen 9 7950X3D
AMD’s first round ‘Zen 4’ The Ryzen 7000 processors are coming very soon, with a September release all but confirmed by Team Red ahead of its August 29th livestream event. But more interesting for many gamers, YouTuber and leaker Moore’s law is dead (opens in a new tab) (MLID) said we can expect to see the upgraded 3D V-Cache Ryzen 7000 chips in Q1 2023.
We already knew that AMD’s 3D V-Cache technology would make an appearance in Ryzen 7000, but this leak gives us a better idea of what we can expect. According to MLID, AMD is preparing two chips: the Ryzen 7 7850X3D and the very powerful Ryzen 9 7950X3D.
3D V-Cache technology is a boon for gamers, as it allows AMD to “stack” L3 cache memory onto the processor chip, which improves performance in games. The first processor to receive this technology was the Ryzen 7 5800X3Dwhich was incredibly able to outperform the more expensive Intel Core i9-12900K in some games thanks to its massive 100MB cache.
Analysis: 3D V-Cache could strengthen AMD’s position as the “gamer’s choice” when it comes to processors
Choose the best processor for a gaming PC can be tricky business. Your CPU won’t have as big of an impact on games as your graphics card, of course, but it can be a performance bottleneck if it lags behind your other components, and some games ( such as real-time strategy titles) benefit from superior CPU more than others.
Price will obviously be key here, but whether AMD’s 3D Ryzen chips are able to outperform Intel’s Raptor Lake processors in games while costing less, it will be a slam dunk for Team Red. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is already arguably the best choice for building a high-end gaming rig right now, so we can expect AMD to keep that momentum going for the second generation of 3D processors.
Intel i7-13700K seeks to provide serious competition, with recently leaked references suggesting that it destroys non-3D Ryzen 7 7700X in synthetic tests. But the average gamer won’t worry about computing performance; it all depends on the frame rates of the game, and that’s where 3D chips will excel. We can’t wait to get our hands on it.
