AMD preparing Ryzen 5700X3D and 5500X3D
AMD to launch two new processors with 8 and 6 cores, equipped with 3D V-Cache.
As per information from chi11eddog, a reliable source for hardware leaks regarding CPU and motherboard launches, AMD is reportedly in the process of developing at least two additional CPUs in the Ryzen 5000X3D series. One of these is a more affordable 8-core model known as the Ryzen 7 5700X3D, anticipated to boast a base clock of 3.0 GHz and a boost clock of 4.1 GHz. This particular CPU is expected to have clock speeds that are 400 MHz lower than the 5800X3D SKU.
Additionally, there is information about a potential new 6-core variant called Ryzen 5 5500X3D, supposedly featuring base and boost clocks of 3.0 GHz and 4.0 GHz, respectively. These clock speeds are said to be 300/400 MHz lower than the 5600X3D. Both of these CPUs are rumored to incorporate a 96MB 3D V-Cache.
The current report does not offer details on the potential availability of the newly discussed CPUs. Right now, AMD has two new CPUs with 3D V-Cache. One is called the 5800X3D and is considered the best gaming CPU for the AM4 platform. The other is called the 5600X3D and can only be bought from MicroCenter in the United States. The prospect of AMD broadening the availability of 3D V-Cache options globally, rather than confining them to specific retailers, would indeed be noteworthy.
The introduction of the 5700X3D and 5500X3D models for the AM4 platform could make it better for gamers who don’t want to spend too much money. The release of more cost-effective SKUs could offer gamers an attractive upgrade path without imposing a substantial financial burden, paving the way for a transition to newer AM5/LGA-1851 sockets in the future.
A noteworthy aspect of the X3D series is its compatibility with various entry-level motherboards. These CPUs do not support overclocking. Hence, their requirements are lower. Despite this limitation, these CPUs show superior performance in gaming tests compared to their non-X3D counterparts.
