AMD has announced its new 3D V-Cache CPU technology which is set to arrive on its new Ryzen 9 7950X3D, 7900X3D and 7800X3D range in February. The new hardware aims to deliver some big promises made by AMD for PC gaming and productivity. In fact, AMD wants to take the crown from Intel by outperforming its Core i9-13900K CPU.
The big feature of these new chipsets is the new 3D V-Cache technology. AMD’s first 3D V-Cache chip which was released last year, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, managed to outperform the Ryzen 5900X and Intel’s 12th Gen Core-i9-12900K. This same chip even came close to performing better than Intel’s 13th Gen Core-i9.
The flagship Ryzen 7950X3D will ship with 16 cores, 32 threads and a 120-watt TDP. It has a combined 150MB of L2 and L3 cache. AMD claims this CPU will be the best tech on the market for both gamers and creators. It promises up to 25% better performance in games that are CPU bound at 1080p.

These chipsets also promise other improvements across tasks such as file compression at a 52% increase over the Intel i9-13900K. However, we’ll have to wait and see how real-world tests come out.
AMD hasn’t shared an exact date for these new Ryzen 9 7950X3D, 7900X3D, and 7800X3D CPUs. There’s also no pricing available yet. The company is likely looking to undercut Intel’s lineup by $100. We’ll hear more about the range close to the expected launch next month. The three chipsets can be seen in the image below.
In addition to the 3D V-Cache range, AMD is also launching its 65-watt Zen 4 CPUs. The Ryzen 9 7900, 7700 and 7600. The top-of-the-range 7900 comes with 12 cores with up to 5.4GHz boost. The 7700 also comes with 12 cores and a 5.3GHz boost. Lastly, the 7600 includes 6 cores and a 5.1GHz boost. These three chipsets plan to launch on 10 January and boast the latest PCI-E Gen 5 and DDR5 support. Check out the specs below.
