AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor with 3D V-Cache priced at $449; New Ryzen Zen 2 and Zen 3 processors announced

Earlier this year, AMD unveiled the Ryzen 7 5800X3D desktop processor, which is their first processor to feature their 3D V-Cache technology. The processor is going on sale from April 20th, and along with it, AMD has introduced 6 new SKUs  that will join the ‘Zen 3’ and ‘Zen 2’ family of processors.

The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is a Zen 3-based 8-core/16-thread processor that has a total of 96MB of L3 cache. It will have a base clock speed of 3.4GHz and a turbo clock speed of 4.5GHz. According to AMD’s claims, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D will perform up to 15% faster in games when compared to the Ryzen 9 5900X. This is possible due to their new 3D V-Cache technology, that allows AMD to stack processor cache and improve performance.

AMD announced 6 new processors that will join their existing lineup of desktop processors. They range from the Zen 3-based AMD Ryzen 7 5700X to the Zen-2 based AMD Ryzen 3 4100. These new processors will better compete against Intel’s 12th Gen Core processor lineup.
