According to a leak, AMD’s next Ryzen 5 5600X3D 3D V-Cache CPU will compete with Intel’s Core i9 for the title of best gaming processor on the AM4 platform.
The leaker, chi11eddog, revealed the potential specs of a brand-new AM4 CPU, the Ryzen 5 5600X3D, on the internet. A brand-new CPU in the Zen 3 series that will work with the AM4 socket is the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X3D. AMD currently only offers one 3D V-Cache CPU for the AM4 socket, however that will change with the introduction of the 5600X3D.
The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X3D features the OPN “100-000001176” and will have a 7nm Zen 3 core architecture, to start with the specs. The CPU will have six cores and twelve threads. The chip will include a huge 96 MB L3 cache in addition to 3 MB of L2 cache. On the single CCD, which will be exclusively tailored for gaming workloads, there will be 32 MB of L3 and 64 MB of SRAM stack.
When it debuts, the 5600X3D will also be the first CPU with a 6-core 3D V-Cache, which makes way for a potential Ryzen 5 7600X3D CPU for the AM5 platform in the future. Although nothing is known about them at this time, the red team also intends to deliver new Ryzen APUs to address the mainstream and entry-level markets on the AM5 front.
The chip will have a base clock of 3.3 GHz and a boost clock of 4.4 GHz, according to the clock speed ratings. These are little slower than the normal Ryzen 5 5600X, which has a base & boost frequency of 3.7 GHz & 4.6 GHz. The Ryzen 5 5600X3D, like the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, will have a baseline TDP of 105W and will not enable overclocking because of its delicate cache’s dislike of higher voltages.
Pricing and availability are unknown, however the leaker claims that the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X3D will be available very soon, so we might learn more in the coming weeks. If the Ryzen 5 5600X3D is priced somewhere around the $200 US area, it will easily become one of the best-sellers and further increase the shelf-life of AM4 motherboards because the Ryzen 7 5800X3D has already reached sub-$300 US pricing.
