Announced at CES 2023, AMD’s upcoming 3D V-cache lineup took the world by storm thanks in part to its newly stacked internals and 64 MB of L3 cache. Still, while the new Zen 4 chips prove to be extremely exciting for gamers most especially, little else is known about these components, most prominent among them being the Ryzen X3D price.
Ryzen X3D price structure
Ryzen 7 7800X3D price
The Ryzen 7 7800X3D is intended to be AMD’s replacement chip for the 5800X3D. The new stacked 3D V-cache chip features 8 cores, 16 threads, and 104 MB of cache. It sports a base clock speed of 4 GHz and a max boost of 5.0 GHz, set at a 120W TDP. Given that it’s the smallest chip among the new bunch, it’s the cheapest and most entry-level of the trio.
The Ryzen 7 7800X3D price is set at $469. This makes sense. A starting MSRP of around $400 to $450 seemed the most reasonable for the chip, with AMD pitting the Ryzen 7800X3D against Intel’s Core i7-13700K, which costs around $400 itself.
Ryzen 9 7900X3D price
In the middle of the new 3D V-cache bunch is the Ryzen 9 7900X3D, which leverages 12 cores, 24 threads, with a total of 140 MB cache, and a TDP of 120W. It has a base clock rating of 4.4 GHz and a boost clock of 5.6 GHz, which proves it’s only a bit slower than its original non-X3D model.
With these various features made apparent, the 7900X3D is priced at $599. It was safe to assume that the price on this chip would be set around $500 to $600 too. Current standings suggested that’s a decent place for this middle-of-the-pack X3D SKU.
Ryzen 9 7950X3D price
The top-most chip among AMD’s new 3D V-cache lineup, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, is a beast in specs, packing within it a total of 144 MB cache, 16 cores and 32 threads.
The base clock sits at 4.2 GHz, while the boost clock speed is rated for 5.7 GHz. It, like both of its counterparts, will share in the 120W TDP and will prove to be the most interesting chip of the lot given its gaming backbone.
As such, given the 7950X3D is the flagship of this lineup, and the price is $699. Not as high as some expected at around $800, meaning it could offer good value. It’s still too early to tell whether it will, but Intel’s counterpart, the i9 13900KS, boasts a typical $600 price tag and so it’s a clear head-to-head.
When will Ryzen 7000 X3D launch?
Yet another query on most minds beyond the new Ryzen X3D price structure is when enthusiasts may expect these chips to officially debut. An original announcement at CES gave wind of a potential February launch window, and one of the new Ryzen chips, the 7800X3D, sported a Valentine’s Day release on its product page.
However, AMD later retracted this as an internal issue, stating that more information on the release date would be unveiled shortly, but that the official debut month will remain as February. We now know, the release dates are as follows:
