Ryzen 7950X3D, 7900X3D, 7800X3D price prediction

AMD has still not given word on what its X3D chips will cost, making enthusiasts come up with their own potential price points

Last Updated on

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.

Yet another query on most minds are when enthusiasts can expect these chips to officially debut. An original announcement at CES gave wind of a potential Febuaray 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 Febuaray.

But of most importance for gamers and creators alike is what the Ryzen X3D price split will come out to be across all three components, and thus far it’s looking somewhat manageable.

Ryzen 7 7800X3D price prediction

The Ryzen 7 7800X3D is intended to be AMD’s replacement chip of 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 safe to assume it will be the cheapeast and most entry-level of the trio.

Thus, a starting MSRP of around $400 to $450 seems 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 prediction

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, it’s safe to assume that the Ryzen X3D price on this chip will be set around $500 to $600. Current standings suggest that the 7900X3D could be as much as $549 upon release.

Ryzen 9 7950X3D price prediction

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, the price could be go as high as $800. It’s still to early to tell just yet how accurate this is, but the proof can be seen in the Intel counterpart, the i9 13900KS, which boasts a typical $600 price tag.

Although it’s still too early to tell, the new 3D V-cache chips out of AMD will be a major step forward and could be a gamer must-have if all the specs and metrics prove to be true.
