The AMD Ryzen 7000X3D series features a new box design, no OC support, and a lower maximum operating temperature.


AMD has updated its website with complete specifications for the Ryzen 7000X3D CPUs.

The three upcoming Ryzen 7000X3D CPUs will be packaged in a new box design. The PIB (Processor in Box) package will now have a bright orange and silver accent with the logo ‘3D Vertical Cache technology’. This allows customers to quickly distinguish between Ryzen 7000 X3D and X-variants.

AMD confirmed that the default TDP for Ryzen 7000X3D CPUs will be 50W lower, at 120W. Furthermore, the Tjmax (operating temperature) for the new series has been reduced from 95°C (on the X-series) to 89°C. This is also 1°C cooler than the previous-generation Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU.

When it comes to overclocking, AMD will also not allow full OC on the new parts. The maximum voltage of 7000X3D parts will be higher than the previous generation (1.4 vs 1.1V), but manual overclocking is still out of the question.

AMD is still hesitant to share full details on their 7000X3D CPUs, as more information will be released shortly before the February launch. However, it has now been confirmed that manual overclocking of these CPUs will also be limited.

It’s worth noting that the 7000X3D series will support PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive) and Curve Optimizer, implying that AMD is at least allowing some fine-tuning for the new series with 3D V-Cache. To optimise these power and voltage-sensitive CPUs, this is the recommended and safe option.
