The gaming experience is always evolving, and AMD has its sights set on becoming part of the equation with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D processor. First announced at CES 2022, the 8-core CPU is the first of Ryzen offerings to feature AMD 3D V-Cache technology, which will reportedly deliver 15 percent more gaming performance across select titles.
This new processor is slated to launch globally from 20 April 2022 at a starting retail price of US$499, after the release of other new Ryzen desktop processors. Building on the Zen 2 and Zen 3 core architectures, these additions come recommended for new PC builds, offering up to eight cores, 16 threads, and 36MB of cache in the Ryzen 7 5700X CPU. All new Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 models, meanwhile, will come bundled with an AMD Wraith Stealth cooler, and are expected to be available beginning 4 April.
The list of details for the offering is as follows:
|Model||Architecture||Core / Threads||Price|
|AMD Ryzen 7 5700X||Zen 3||8 / 16||US$299|
|AMD Ryzen 5 5600||Zen 3||6 / 12||US$199|
|AMD Ryzen 5 5500||Zen 3||6 / 12||US$159|
|AMD Ryzen 5 4600G (with AMD Ryzen Radeon graphics)||Zen 2||6 / 12||US$154|
|AMD Ryzen 5 4500||Zen 2||6 / 12||US$129|
|AMD Ryzen 3 4100||Zen 2||4 / 8||US$99|
In addition to the above offerings, AMD is also extending support for Ryzen 5000 Series processors on the AMD 300 Series chipsets, allowing the AMD X350, B350, and A320 chipsets to be upgraded to Zen 3 performance. Updates are slated to roll out sometime in April, which means it’ll be pretty soon before users have access to an enhanced gaming and desktop experience.
