AMD has announced pricing for their upcoming 7000 series X3D chips in the form of the 16-core 32-thread 7950X3D, 12-core 24-thread 7900X3D, and 8-core 16-thread 7800X3D CPUs. As mentioned in a previous article, these X3D CPUs will come with AMD’s 3D V-Cache which promises enhanced frame rate boosting game performance.
|AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D||16C/32T||5.7GHz / 4.2GHz||144MB||120W||$699 (SEP)|
|AMD Ryzen 9 7950X||16C/32T||5.7GHz / 4.5GHz||80MB||170W||$599|
|AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D||12C/24T||5.6GHz / 4.4GHz||140MB||120W||$599 (SEP)|
|AMD Ryzen 9 7900X||12C/24T||5.6GHz / 4.7GHz||76MB||170W||$444|
|AMD Ryzen 9 7900||12C/24T||5.4GHz / 3.7GHz||76MB||65W||$429|
|AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D||8C/16T||5.0GHz / 4.2GHz||104MB||120W||$449 (SEP)|
|AMD Ryzen 7 7700X||8C/16T||5.4GHz / 4.5GHz||40MB||105W||$348|
As predicted, you’ll be expected to pony up around an extra $/£100 for the X3D variants which offer additional performance with a reduced base clock, giving lower TDP ratings across the board, though, we fully expect them to still cap out at the rated 95°C that the non-X3D CPUs currently level out at.
It looks like the 7950X3D and 7900X3D will be available for purchase on February 28th, with the 7800X3D some 5 weeks later!
