Early this year, AMD announced that they will be releasing a unique Zen3 CPU that features AMD’s 3D V-cache. Today, AMD announces the pricing and release date of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. In addition, AMD also announced 6 “new” processors: Ryzen 7 5700X, Ryzen 5 5600 and 5500; Ryzen 5 4600G, 4500, and Ryzen 3 4100. These are Zen 3 and Zen 2 refresh CPUs.

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D – The “Worlds Fastest Gaming CPU”

According to AMD, the upcoming Ryzen 7 5800X3D is the world’s fastest gaming CPU, rivaling Intel’s latest 12th gen Core i9-12900K processor. Of course, we’ll have to wait for reviews to confirm AMD’s claim when it comes to gaming. It is the first Ryzen processor to feature AMD 3D V-Cache technology. According to AMD, with the 3D V-cache, the 5800X3D can deliver up to 15% more gaming performance compared to CPUs with the traditional cache.
