Alongside the hardware announcements at CES, AMD announced the new 7000X3D CPUs. AMD claims these new processors are the fastest in the world, offering 14% more performance than the previous generation. The 7000X3D processors incorporate 3D V-Cache technology into the 7000 CPUs to dramatically improve performance.
The three new chips are AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D, AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D. The main difference between the models is in their cores and threads, as well as their total cache. A larger total cache reduces 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 begin to be released in February, although pricing has not been announced. Eurogamer Noted that a footnote in the presentation stated that prices were given in US dollars, indicating that the prices were likely removed at short notice.
Other 7000 series CPUs were also announced, and will launch on January 10. The AMD Ryzen 5 7600 costs $229, the AMD Ryzen 7 7700 costs $329, and the AMD Ryzen 9 7900 costs $429. AMD also revealed the Ryzen 7045HX series of processors for laptops, which will feature in systems from Alienware, ASUS, Lenovo and MSI starting in February 2023.
