The much-anticipated Ryzen 9 7900X3D was first unveiled only recently amid CES 2023, wherein some of the most mind-bending new technologies gain traction and become icons in the fold. As for the Ryzen 9 7900X3D release date, little was known until now.

AMD’s CES keynote highlighted the continued innovations the firm is set to utilize in 2023, the most prominent among them being the upgrading of its 3D V-cache technology, which will be implemented in three new chips. It’s not far off, the Ryzen 9 7900X3D release date will be February 28th.

The CPU will cost from $599 and arrive alongside the Ryzen 9 7950X3D. Meanwhile, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D is slated for April 6. AMD hasn’t released any official metrics, but the firm has announced some major specifications of the three new chips in question:

The specs provided by AMD underscore its newfound commitment to price to performance, leveraging some interesting new internals to deliver a powerful CPU that doesn’t break the bank. Specifically for the 7900X3D, specs include 12 CPU cores, 24 threads, a base clock speed of 4.4GHz, and a max boost of up to 5.6GHz.

L3 cache sees a significant jump on AMD’s new processor, featuring 128MB in tandem with 768KB of L1, and 12MB of L2 cache. The default TDP for the Ryzen 9 7900X3D is set at 120W and it utilizes an AM5 CPU socket, like most modern AMD chips.

As for the chip’s release date, now we know that it’s February 28th, it’s interesting that both Ryzen 9 X3D chips will arrive before the Ryzen 7 7800X3D debut, which was previously reportedly set for February 14th, before AMD denied that date while committing to February for the launch of the X3D.

No doubt the 7800X3D will be popular, and releasing six weeks after the two Ryzen 9 processors may allow the top-tier to stretch their legs a little. But a lot will depend on performance, especially given the ongoing battle between Zen 4 and Intel’s Raptor Lake processors.
