AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Review

Features

As always with a new product launch there is a selection of slides that try and explain what is going on. With the Ryzen 7 5800X3D that is all about how the 3D V-Cache has been designed and implemented. We’re not going to try and pretend we understand the intricacies of chip design, but that’s not really our job. We’re all about the end results. Chances are, you’re not massively interested either. It’s a black art. What we do know is that the new 3D V-Cache is now on top of the CPU die itself, but that die has been thinned to ensure that the physical size is the same as before and thus all your AM4 mounting options will still work just fine.

What makes us prick up our ears is the fact the Ryzen 7 5800X3D continues AMDs trend of supplying drop-in solutions, so as long as you’ve got an AM4 motherboard and the manufacturer has provided a BIOS update, you’ll be able to run this if you choose. At $449 MSRP it certainly seems attractive enough, even though AMD have taken away our overclocking and tweaking tools.
