AMD went all in at the last CES 2023. Team Red decided to show the world what they are aiming for, and how they’ll get it. One of their objectives is to provide the best gaming and content creation processors. And their way of doing so is by launching the Ryzen 7000X 3D series. And now, we know the upcoming Ryzen 9 7950X3D release date.

The Ryzen 9 7950X3D release date has been confirmed by AMD as Tuesday, February 28th, from $699. The 7950X3D will arrive alongside the Ryzen 9 7900X3D, while the Ryzen 7 7800X3D will arrive in April.

The new arrivals will add extra oomph to AMD’s SKUs, and extra performance for those who want it.

Previously AMD Senior VP, Saeid Moshkelani, commented the Ryzen 9 7950X3D would be released in February as part of an effort to deliver “more options than ever before across desktop and mobile, to create the perfect experience for each user”.

Ryzen 9 7950X3D details

Last year, we already saw some leaked information about these SKUs, and we were expecting a release by Q1 2023. However, February looks earlier than expected, which is excellent news for gamers and content creators alike.

The last iteration of X3D cache processors were big sellers and amazing performers. But the 3D V-cache technology was not yet ready to win the battle – even though the chip was great at gaming.

Previously it suffered when facing tasks such as rendering, video editing, and other content creation activities.

The new Zen 4 configuration of the Ryzen 7000-series, plus AMD’s 3D V-cache technology will close that folder and finally deliver the dream performance for both gamers, and content creators who love AMD.

Will Ryzen 7000 have a 3D V cache?

Yes, The Ryzen 7000-series will have a 3D V-cache version. The Ryzen 9 7950X3D, the Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and the Ryzen 7 7800X3D will all three work under 120W, which is low and efficient for a processor this powerful.

Especially, when we keep in mind that the Ryzen 9 7950X3D will feature 16 cores and 32 threads, a clock speed of up to 5.7 GHz boosted, a 4.2 GHz base, and 144MB of total cache.

With the 3D V-cache versions of the 7000-series released, AMD will complete the entire cycle for their new series. January 10th saw the non-X version drop and now it’s just the X3D variants we’re waiting for!
