A new report says AMD's Ryzen 9000 X3D CPUs could arrive later this year. AMD plans to announce them in September, around when Intel's Arrow Lake chips are slated to debut.

Even though AMD showed off its Ryzen 9000 series of desktop processors at Computex 2024, you won't be able to buy it until later next month (July 2024). A previous report incorrectly predicted AMD would launch its new X3D CPUs alongside their non-X3D counterparts. However, a new report from Club386 (via Videocardz) talks about an earlier-than-usual arrival for AMD's newest gaming-focused CPUs.

A source familiar with the matter told the publication that AMD plans to announce some Ryzen 9000 X3D SKUs as early as September 2024. Like last time, the Ryzen 9 9950X3D and Ryzen 9900X3D will be the first to launch, followed by the Ryzen 7 9800X3D. Exactly when the CPUs will be available for purchase remains unknown. A 2025 release date seems likely because it will give enough time for the remaining Zen 5 CPUs to permeate through the market.

That said, an earlier-than-usual release date for the Ryzen 9 9950X3D, Ryzen 9 9900X3D and Ryzen 9 9800X3D runs the risk of cannibalizing sales of existing models, especially among gamers, who stand to benefit from the extra cache. Then again, Intel's late-2024-bound Arrow Lake is slated to bring some serious performance gains, so it is understandable as to why AMD wants to lay out all of its cards before the competition.
