Further details about AMD’s 12-core Ryzen 9 CPU with 3D V-Cache are provided.
The review ban on AMD’s Ryzen 9 7000X3D desktop CPU series was lifted yesterday. The only issue was that nearly nobody had access to a 12-core 7900X3D SKU, leaving many of the fans unsure of whether or not they ought to place a preorder right away.
In actuality, the Japanese content producer “Uncle FPS” only reviewed this processor once. It demonstrates that the new Processor consumes substantially less power and is faster in gaming than the 7900X.
AMD eventually stated that the 7900X3D had 6 active cores in each chiplet, despite the fact that the 12-core X3D Processor was essentially unavailable to reviewers. This indicates that there aren’t any disparate configurations, like a 3D V-Cache chiplet with 8 cores and a standard CCD with 4 cores.
Andreas Schilling, who also created a mockup of the 16-core and the future 8-core model, offered an example of how this works. The last Ryzen CPU is anticipated to be the greatest gaming Ryzen CPU of all three versions because it is only built on one CCD with 3D V-Cache. Several simulations in yesterday’s evaluations are predicated on the notion that one chiplet can be disabled, even if it hasn’t been tested yet.

Gamers will have a difficult time deciding between the 7900X3D, 7900X, 7700X, or 7600X SKUs because there hasn’t been much 7900X3D coverage from critics and because the sale embargo is about to lift. AMD’s hesitation (or tactic) to restrict the availability of 7900X3D samples did not make this decision any simpler.
