AMD may lower the price of Ryzen 7 5800X3D next month
At CES 2022, AMD launched a Zen 3 architecture desktop processor with 3D vertical cache (3D V-Cache) technology, bringing an additional 64MB of 7nm SRAM cache to each CCD. The L3 cache capacity of the processor is increased from 32MB to 96MB, and the capacity is tripled.
In the consumer market, the only processor with 3D vertical cache technology is the 8-core 16-thread Ryzen 7 5800X3D. This processor will be released in late April this year, the price is $449. In fact, subject to TSMC’s manufacturing technology and AMD’s product positioning, the supply of Ryzen 7 5800X3D has been small, and the price has not fluctuated much.
Recently, Twitter user @greymon55 revealed that the price of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D is likely to be reduced next month. This is for the price adjustment after the launch of the Ryzen 7000 series, which is estimated to make room for the new processor. It is rumored that the gaming performance of the Zen 4 architecture processor will be amazing, and the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is mainly aimed at gamers, and can even surpass Intel’s flagship Core i9-12900K at some point.
It is rumored that the Ryzen 7 7700X is priced at $299, which is much lower than the $449 price of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. Both are 8 cores and 16 threads, and the former uses a new architecture and has a higher frequency. The first batch of Ryzen 7000 series processors will have four models, namely Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X, corresponding to 16 cores and 32 threads, 12 cores and 24 threads, 8 cores and 16 threads and 6 cores and 12 threads respectively. AMD’s position in the Ryzen 7 7800X is temporarily vacant, and it may be necessary to observe the dynamics of the market before deciding on the specific configuration.
