Ryzen 9 7900X3D release date prediction

When will AMD's new highly anticipated 3D V-cache chip the Ryzen 9 7900X3D release date finally arrive

Last Updated on

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. AMD’s keynote highlighted the continued innovations the firm is set to make leading into 2023, the most prominent among them being the upgrading of its 3D V-cache technology, which will be implemented in three new chips. As for the Ryzen 9 7900X3D release date, little is currently known.

While AMD didn’t release any official CPU metrics or the aforementioned debut date, the firm did announce 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, it’s hard to really pinpoint, but it should definitely land sometime after the Ryzen 7 7800X3D debut, which is set for February 14th, according to AMD’s own product page. Given this, while AMD hasn’t specified when to expect either Ryzen 9 iteration, both should be released around the same time as one another.

AMD itself relayed in the official announcement of its new 3D V-cache chips that the products would be due out come February this year. Later, the firm clarified that a more official release date would be unveiled soon, with no additional information making waves just yet.

Given this, the chips could be seen as soon as late February or early March, but it’s still left rather ambiguous, and previous launches don’t lend much help, either.
