Gigabyte AM5 motherboards are now ready for AMD’s Ryzen 7000X3D processors

Today, Gigabyte issues a press release to confirm that their X670 and B650 AM5 motherboards has received BIOS upgrades to make them compatible with AMD’s new Ryzen 7000X3D processors, AMD’s new gaming-oriented Zen 4 CPU. 

AMD’s Ryzen 7000X3D processors, like AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D, have been upgraded with an additional 64MB of L3 Cache, allowing AMD’s X3D processors to store more data on-chip and achieve higher levels of L3 cache bandwidth. 

Within their press release, Gigabyte stated that AMD’s Ryzen 7000X3D processors can deliver an “up to 50% performance improvement over AMD’s standard Ryzen 7000 series processors, suggesting that many games will see huge performance gains thanks to AMD’s addition of V-Cache to their Zen 4 processors. 

   AMD first launched 3D V-Cache technology on Ryzen 7 5800X3D processors in 2022 and made it one of the best gaming CPUs. Now AMD brings 3D V-Cache technology to Zen4 and introduces AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and upcoming Ryzen 7 7800X3D processors with superior gaming performance. This new generation 3D V-Cache CPUs with more cores also raise L3 cache up to 128 MB, and boost gaming performance up to 50% thanks to the extra 64 MB cache of 3D V-Cache.

Gaming workloads can be very cache/memory sensitive, and that is the reason why many modern CPU architectures have focused on adding additional cache to their CPUs or increasing the performance of its connected DRAM. There’s a reason why AMD is adding 3D V-Cache to their processors, and why one of Intel’s primary upgrades with Raptor Lake are the architecture’s increased L2 and L3 caches. Beyond that, this is the reason why modern CPUs support DDR5 memory. 

Like with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, large performance gains are expected within a variety of gaming workloads thanks to AMD’s addition of V-Cache to their Ryzen 7000 series processors. That said, not all games are hugely cache sensitive, and that means that not all games will see huge performance benefits thanks to AMD’s addition of 64MB of extra L3 cache. That said, some games will see huge performance benefits, which is great news for AMD.
