AMD could launch updated Ryzen 7000 series already in January
Greymon55 posted a cryptic message on Twitter, supposedly mentioning three upcoming Ryzen CPUs.
At “Together We Advance” event AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su announced four processors of new Ryzen 7000 series. The company also confirmed it is developing Zen4 architecture with 3D V-Cache, however, despite previous claims of such parts appearing by the end of this year, no launch date was provided for consumer parts.
AMD is supposedly planning to reveal three Ryzen 7000 CPUs with 3D V-Cache. The ‘V95, V9 and V8’ as posted by Greymon refer to 7950X3D, 7900X3D and 7800X3D parts respectively.
The leaker was asked when should one expect such parts, to which he replied ‘CES’ suggesting it’s the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show planned for January 5-8 next year.
AMD did not disclose any details on 3D V-Cache for Zen4 CPUs yet. However, should the same capacity be used for the new series, one could expect as much as 144 MB of combined L2 and L3 cache because the Zen4 CPUs have already increased L2 cache.
Last year, AMD teased a prototype 12-core Zen3 CPU with 96MB per each of the CCDs, featuring 192MB L3 cache total. However, such part was never released without clearly stating any reason, but i was believed such CPU would simply be too expensive to make.
With three new Ryzen 7000X3D CPUs, the portfolio of AM5 processors would grow to 7 units. That is still significantly fewer than available AM4 options, but AMD made it clear they intend to keep both platforms supported well into 2023.
