Ryzen 70003D V-Cache CPUS Could Be Limited To 6-Core, 8-Core Configurations

According to ECSM Official’s post on the Bilibili forum, AMD may release two new Ryzen 7000 CPUs with 3D V-Cache technology in the first half of 2023.   But, he says that AMD might only make the six-core and eight-core Zen 4 SKUs with 3D V-Cache available. Unfortunately, no information about higher core count V-Cache chips being developed is available, claims ECSM. However, tread carefully when analyzing the data. It looks like AMD will begin lightly with its future 3D V-Cache processors by keeping to its more cheap six-core and eight-core variants if the information from ECSM is true. 

Both of them will likely make their AMD debuts as Ryzen 5 7600X3D and Ryzen 7 7700X3D, respectively. With the Ryzen 5 7600X3D, AMD may be increasing its 3D V-Cache services to consumers on a budget, as compared to the previous generation, which only provided the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. The initial barrier for 3D-Vcache chips on the AM5 platform with two choices for the Ryzen 7000 will be lower now that the six-core has a V-Cache option rather than the eight-core only. To what level these chips are beneficial will depend on their price, which is currently unknown.

Let’s assume AMD follows the same pricing strategy as it did, for example, with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. In that situation, there would likely be a cost difference of between $100 and $150 between the coming Ryzen 7000 3D V-Cache chips and their vanilla counterparts. Although the performance of Zen 4 with 3D V-Cache is still unknown, we assume it to be much more effective than Zen 3. This is only one of the improvements we are currently aware of; other ones include Ryzen 7000 3D V-Cache chip optimizations that suggest increased bandwidth for the stacked 3D cache itself.

New rumors about 2023 CPUs and motherboard chipsets, including AMD’s affordable A620 chipset and APUs with AM5 architecture, were also revealed by ECSM. The unreleased AMD APU is even more cost-effective than the B650 and has no known delivery date, although the A620 chipset is expected to release in 2023’s second quarter. The fact that this APU will only have a memory frequency of 4800 MHz, according to ECSM, suggests that it may make use of a dated CPU architecture like Zen 3.

Frequently Asked Questions

What processor would be best for you: Ryzen 5 vs Ryzen 7?

Depending on what you need it to do, obviously. An AMD Ryzen 5 will do the work if you’re a casual user who only wants to browse the internet, check your email, and possibly watch some Netflix. However, if you’re a professional or power user who demands greater speed and performance, you’ll want the AMD Ryzen 7.

Are 6 Cores or 8 Cores processors for Gaming?

Most of the time, AMD processors are pretty similar to one another. As with the 6950 XT, the margins we observed with the RTX 3090 are comparable. The 5600 will make the most sense if you’re looking for performance in current-generation PC gaming. If you only use your computer to play games, the 5700X is a fantastic choice. The value equation favors the 5600X more when you’re replacing an older AMD processor. For gamers, the additional 33% processing power won’t really make a difference.

How good is Ryzen 7000 series?

One of the greatest CPUs for gaming is the Ryzen 7000 series. The Zen 4 architecture offers huge generational improvements that enable the CPUs to reach the famous 6GHz line.
