Recently, 老弟一号 has posted a message on a Chinese Social Media platform called Bilibili that the upcoming Ryzen 7 5800X3D does not yet support overclocking. However, we should keep in mind that the original poster does not confirm whether there is a permanent absence of this feature, or rather just the current state of the firmware support.
The original news has an attached picture in which the processor has the OPN and QR codes blurred out. AMD has not yet shown a picture of the CPU with the integrated heat spreader installed.
The 5800X3D is the company’s first consumer CPU equipped with 96MB of 3D V-Cache stacked on a single 8-core chiplet. It is expected to be released on April 20 with an MSRP of 449 USD, which was the original price of the Ryzen 7 5800X. The Ryzen 7 5800X is expected to receive a price cut once the new X3D part is launched.
AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D officially has a 3.4 GHz base clock and 4.5 GHz boost clock, which are respectively 400 MHz and 200 MHz lower than 5800X. If we believe the claims by the company then the large L3 cache is expected to help provide up to 20% higher gaming performance in select titles than Core i9-12900K.
