AM5 also with stacked V-Cache and Release 2023


from Maximilian Hohm
After the release of Core i9-12900KS and Ryzen 7 5800X3D, the release of AMD’s new AM5 platform including DDR5 memory and PCI-E 5.0 in the CPU market should be the next big step. The well-known leaker “Greymon55” wants to have new information about which you can read more below.

AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D convinced with its high performance and gaming efficiency in our first tests and is on par with the more expensive Core i9-12900KS. The magic bullet that AMD has used to boost performance is stacked V-cache, which can especially benefit cache-intensive games and apps. Although the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is a good gaming chip, it requires compromises in the application environment and is beaten by internal Ryzen 9 models in the form of the 5900X and 5950X, which are hard to justify as a path of upgrade.

However, AMD’s decision to only build an eight-core processor and not a big 5900X3D or even a 5950X3D is understandable, as the chiplet design with two CCXs would have resulted in even higher costs for more L3 cache, although the gaming performance would probably only increase as a result would have been slightly improved. Instead, AMD can not only offer the 5800X3D as a quick upgrade option for users still using Zen/Zen+/Zen 2, but also reduce manufacturing efforts by only having to build one model. with 3D matte.

According to well-known leaker “Greymon55”, Zen3D chips are currently only manufactured on one production line and serve AMD as preparation for Zen 4, which will only be presented next year with the AM5 platform including PCI -E 5.0 and DDR5 memory. According to his information, Zen 4 should also be equipped with an additional V-cache, which should not be installed planar, but stacked on the die. However, as AMD assumes that Zen 4 can be overclocked well, according to early leaks, the 3D cache seems to have been further optimized and developed, which is currently the reason for locked OC options in the Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
