Alongside a bevy of hardware announcements at CES, AMD announced new 7000X3D CPUs. AMD claims that these new processors are the fastest in the world, offering up to 14% higher performance than the previous generation. 7000X3D processors add 3D V-Cache tech to 7000 CPUs improving performance dramatically.
The three new chips are the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D, AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and the AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D. The primary difference between the models are in their core and threads, as well as their total cache. A larger total cache minimizes the time spent loading data into the cache, resulting in faster performance. The 7800X3D has eight cores, 16 threads, and a total cache of 104MB. The 7900X3D has 12 cores, 24 threads, and a total cache of 140MB. The 7950X3d has 16 cores, 32 threads, and a total cache of 144MB.
The announced processors will start to release in February, though prices have not been announced. Eurogamer noted that a footnote at the presentation stated that prices were given in US dollars, indicating that exact prices were possibly removed at short notice.
