Updated: AMD Ryzen 7000X3D launches February 14th 2023

There will be a new packaging style for the three incoming Ryzen 7000X3D processors. The logo for the new '3D Vertical Cache technology' will be prominently displayed in orange and silver on the PIB (Processor in Box) packaging. 

AMD also announced that the base TDP for Ryzen 7000X3D processors would be reduced by 50W to 120W. Furthermore, the new series' Tjmax (operating temperature) is lower at 89 degrees Celsius, down from 95 degrees Celsius (on the X-series). That's 1°C different than the previous-generation Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor.AMD will not allow full overclocking capability on the new products. Manual overclocking will still be impossible, despite the fact that 7000X3D components will have a greater maximum voltage (1.4V vs. 1.1V) than the previous generation. While additional information on AMD's 7000X3D processors will be released before their February release, the company is still hesitant to provide many specifics. 

Update: AMD posted on it's website the release date for the new X3d processor, that's the 14th of February 2023

It's worth noting that the 7000X3D series will feature support for PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive) and Curve Optimizer, indicating that AMD permits some granularity in fine-tuning for the new series with 3D V-Cache. In order to optimize these power- and voltage-conscious CPUs, this is the suggested and risk-free choice.AMD has launched three Ryzen 7000X3D models with 3D V-Cache, increasing the number of X3D CPUs for client PCs from one (in the case of the Ryzen 5000 family) to three (for the Ryzen 7000 series).

All three processors get a 120W-rated TDP bringing back these processors towards better manageable temperatures. All factors combined can make these processors the most desirable of the year for the gaming end-consumer. The caches are interesting, the Dual-CCD 7900X3D and 7950X3D were demonstrated, with respective total caches of 140 MB and 144 MB. And that means one CCD has a 32 MB L3 cache on-die, and the other is a standard planar CCD.
Also new is the fact that "X3D" does not always imply lower turbo clock rates. At the very least, the two larger models no longer lose the maximum turbo clock when compared to their X siblings: AMD continues to specify the Ryzen 9 7950X at up to 5.7 GHz and the Ryzen 9 7900X3D at up to 5.6 GHz. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D has a maximum clock speed of 5.0 GHz, while the Ryzen 7 7700X has a maximum clock speed of 5.4 GHz. The Ryzen 9's high turbo is because the cache chip is carried by only one chiplet. AMD has also established a TDP of 120 watts for all three X3D CPUs. This is more than the Ryzen 7 7700X's 105 watts, but less than the two existing Ryzen 9s' 170 watts out of the box. The step makes sense in light of the X3D CPUs' intended application.

AMD released its Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000-series desktop processors in September 2022. They have excellent single-threaded performance (thanks partly to their ultra-high clock speeds), which means they can compete well against Intel's 12th and 13th-generation parts. AMD claims its Ryzen 7000X3D processors are 13–24% faster than Intel's Core i9-13900K in early benchmarks. The Ryzen 7800X3D, on the other hand, is 21-30% faster than the Ryzen 7 5800X3D across four AMD-tested games. The company also claims that the new processors outperform the previous Ryzen 7 5800X3D in creative workloads. The launch of the processors is scheduled for February. To date, AMD has not provided a recommended retail price.
