The highly-anticipated Zen 4 X3D processors from AMD are finally here in the form of the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D and Ryzen 9 7950X3D. All three SKUs come with a second-generation V-cache but have slightly power TDPs an boost clocks compared to their non-3D counterparts. The processors will hit shelves in February 2023 for an unspecified price.

Ever since the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D skyrocketed to the top of the best gaming processors, there has been quite a lot of hype about its Zen 4-based successors. Previous leaks estimated that they'd offer up to a 30% performance uplift thanks to the second-generation V-cache. Now, AMD has finally unveiled the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D and Ryzen 9 7950X3D.

The flagship AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D is a 16-core, 32-thread processor which can boost up to 5.7 GHz on a single core. It has a TDP of 120 Watts and 144 MB of L2 + L3 cache. AMD claims it is up to 24% faster than the Intel Core i9-13900K in gaming. While first-party benchmarks are often a bit exaggerated, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D will almost certainly decimate the Raptor Lake flagship and its KS-branded successor in gaming.

Moving on to the AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D, one gets 12 cores, 24 threads, 140 MB of total cache, a 5.6 GHz boost clock and a TDP of 120 Watts. Lastly, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D keeps its predecessor's (Ryzen 7 5800X3D) 8-core, 16-thread design and ups the TDP and boost clock to 120 Watts and 5.0 GHz, respectively.

AMD says the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D and Ryzen 9 7950X3D will be available for purchase in February 2023. Unfortunately, their prices are shrouded by mystery. They will by no means be cheap, but the extra cost will be well worth the extra performance, especially for people who only want to play games.
