AMD is reportedly launching Zen 4 X3D early next year if the latest report from Moore’s Law is Dead is accurate. The chips which might include the Ryzen 9 7950X3D and the Ryzen 7 7800X3D are reportedly Zen 4 desktop parts with 3D stacked cache. Aside from desktop SKUs, the leaker has also shared some details regarding AMD’s Dragon Range APUs.

We recently reported that AMD is gearing up to launch the Zen 4 X3D chips with the second-generation 3D V-Cache technology. The report came to us courtesy of leaker Tom from Moore’s Law is Dead YouTube channel. The leaker also revealed that the early Zen 4 SKUs with 3D V-Cache perform up to 30% better than their non-3D V-Cache counterparts and AMD can supposedly release the Ryzen 9 7950X3D and the Ryzen 7 7800X3D as early as April 2023.

Tom has now updated his release date predictions with the leaker’s sources pointing to an earlier launch. Per one of his sources, “Zen 4 X3D is going to be on shelves in Q1 2023.” In other words, within six months of the release of AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPUs, Team Red will put the 3D V-Cache Zen 4 SKUs in the hands of consumers to possibly take the gaming performance crown from Intel if the latter manages to grab it this year. If this happens, the scenario would be almost exactly like the one created by the Ryzen 7 5800X3D.

EPYC Genoa-X

Tom also mentions that AMD is reportedly sending Genoa-X engineering samples to some of the existing Milan-X customers “within a month or so”. Launched in March, EPYC Milan-X processors were the first chips to get 3D V-Cache. Tom’s suggestion that AMD is already sending out ES of Genoa-X indicates that the company is much deeper into the development of the second-generation 3D stacked cache than most people think.

AMD Dragon Range APU

Aside from desktop SKUs, the leaker also reports on Dragon Range, the Zen 4 APUs that will come with 55 W+ TDPs and offer desktop-class CPU performance. Per Tom, “Dragon Range is literally the same IOD and CCD chiplets.” That means, the CPU on these APUs is reportedly full Zen 4 “Raphael” shrunk down to fit the laptop form factor. Interestingly, AMD can potentially put 3D stacked cache on Dragon Range APUs, since they are supposedly just standard Zen 4 CPUs.

To sum it all up, AMD is allegedly preparing to release the Ryzen 9 7950X3D and the Ryzen 7 7800X3D in early Q1 2023 with gaming performance that can potentially blow Raptor Lake out of the water. Now, all we have to do is wait and see if what Tom has reported turns out to be true.
