With AMD’s official announcement of the Ryzen 7000 series there are only 4 chips launching initially. We do know that AMD has been working on a variant of the “Zen 4” CPU complex die (CCD) that features 3D Vertical Cache (3DV-cache) memory with AMD confirming that this technology continues to be part of the company’s client roadmap. According to the latest rumors the first Ryzen 7000X3D processors could be unveiled at CES 2023 in January.
From what we’ve seen from leaks it looks like the Ryzen 7000 series will beat out Intel’s 12th generation Core “Alder Lake” parts in gaming, but it might trade blows with the upcoming 13th generation “Raptor Lake” parts. So launching the 3DV-cache parts after Intel launching Raptor Lake makes sense and would give AMD the competitive edge in gaming.
According to known AMD leaker Greymon55 there could be three Ryzen 7000X3D SKUs: the Ryzen 7 7800X3D (8-core/16-thread) positioned above the 7700X; the Ryzen 9 7900X3D (12-core/24-thread), and the Ryzen 9 7950X3D (16-core/32-thread).
