AMD has finally announced the release date and pricing for its highly anticipated 7000X3D processors. Gamers and enthusiasts alike will be able to purchase a Ryzen 9 7950X3D and Ryzen 9 7900X3D starting February 28th. Pricing is reasonable as well at $699 for the 7950X3D and $599 for the 7900X3D. AMD plans to follow up with the release of its 7800X3D on April 6th for a slightly more budget friendly $449.

The first iteration of AMD’s 3D stacked vertical cache (V-Cache™) technology was a huge success with the 5000-series processors. Stacking the cache on top of their existing CCDs allows for the 7000-series processors to achieve up to 128 MB of L3 Cache. For comparison, Intel’s top offering, the Core I9 13900 series, offers 36 MB of Smart (L3) Cache. Below is a chart of the specifications for the complete 7000-series line-up.

man, i fi could afford it... i don't know which Ryzen 9 Zen4 i'd get....
for my own use, i primarily game, but occasionally do minor audio editing, which requires more cores for faster encoding. Also, the main game i play benefits from more cores in DX11. (practically +50% to +100% more FPS in this one game DX11 vs DX9 because of the the better utilization of multithreading and speed of integrating those "side-threads" back into the main thread)
i'm guessing that i'd get the best bang out of a 7950X3D.
IF i could afford it right now... LoL guess i'll just have to wait til everything is 5th gen (PCIe NVMe's, GPU, etc....) still waiting on a 5.0 samsung NVMe
ugh... why am i always so broke? *looks at signature* oh yeah...

As I mentioned in another thread, I wanted 7800X3D, but the huge delay in the release date made me go with Ryzen 7600. Actually, after checking multiple comparisons about how many cores games can use, it's a ~0-5% loss vs 8-16 core options, so I don't care. I won't play at low display resolution trying to pass 200FPS, so it won't make me any difference. I already checked that my CPU can make 5.4GHz on all cores and at about 95-98W, so is perfect for SFF.

I don't know what to think about Samsung SSD. Recent news shows a design flaw in Samsung 990 causing it to show faster than typical degradation. Samsung 980 Pro was failing at work (we had only 8, but 4 went to RMA after a few months). In the same time, I don't have problems with brands like Crucial, Silicon Power or Kingston. I don't say it's a rule, but at least for me, Samsung doesn't look so great. I could still use PCIE 5.0 SSD, just because I want it :) I highly doubt I will see any difference compared to PCIE 4.0.

This thread is about the cpus, but I heard 980 pro 2tb was having issues and needed to update firmware....

This thread is about the cpus, but there are two different 980 Pro - one is single sided, another one is double sided (different capacity chips). Both double sided 2TB Pro that back to me from RMA were replaced to single sided, and so far work without issues.

The news didn't mention single or double sided, just the firmwares that were affected (and sometimes 1TB drives). ;)

I was hoping for a news article, but will post something in the forums and link it so we can get back to the CPU.......

Ooooh! It's one of those "X3D" thingies! I only recently learned what they were! :) (Though I have NO IDEA what the difference between the "X3D" and the "X" is...)

The 7800X3D or the 7900X3D would be my picks if I were building right now.
Id love to upgrade from my FX system soonish, but all my extra $$ is being funneled to other projects currently.

The X3D indicates it has the 3d V cache included.

The X3D indicates it has the 3d V cache included.

I only add that:
X = all "fast" cores, but no 3D cache = fast in general and boosts about the same (+/- 100MHz) on all cores
X3D = one CCD has 3D cache, one not (7800X3D has only one, 3D cache CCD) = 3D cache is significantly faster in some games but may run at a lower frequency, so can be worse for more standard tasks (that can't take advantage of 3D cache)

3D cache cores will be limited to about 5GHz, but AMD mentioned they're unlocked in 7000 CPUs (5000 were locked). We still don't really know how they will OC. Non-3D cache cores boost up to ~5.8GHz at auto settings.

Yeah but what the hell is "3D cache"? You can see the cache physically manifested in the real world like a hologram or what?!

I hate when people come up with stupid names for things. I mean... isn't it really just "cache"? Or maybe they could just say what KIND of cache it is.

Yeah I'm sure it's some kind of alliterative acronym... but the hell with that! Let's restore SOME kind of order to these insane naming schemes...

Maybe it does make sense... if you know what it is?
