Upcoming Ryzen 9 7950X3D and Ryzen 7 7800X3D Could Have Unlocked Base-clock Multipliers

Product pages for the upcoming AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D and Ryzen 7 7800X3D have gone online. The interesting thing about this is that on the product pages it says that the two chips are unlocked for overclocking. So we can assume that they will have an unlocked base-clock multiplier, which makes them easy to overclock. The previous Ryzen 7 5800X3D had a locked base-clock multiplier, making it complicated to overclock.

These two processors are scheduled to be released in February and make use of stacked 3D vertical cache technology (3DV cache). The 8-core/16-thread 7800X3D will have 64 MB of 3DV cache stacked on top of the 32 MB of on-die L3 cache, taking its L3 cache size to 96 MB, and total cache (L2+L3) to 104 MB. The 16-core/32-thread 7950X3D has a dual CCD design with 3DV cache on only one of the CCDs. So this CCD has 96 MB of L3 cache (including the 3DV cache), while the second CCD is a standard “Zen 4” CCD with just 32 MB of on-die L3 cache.
