Update 03:25 PT 1/12/2023:

AMD has issued a statement on the previously reported Ryzen 7000 X3D release date.

“As you know, today AMD.com (opens in new tab) briefly published a launch date for the Ryzen7000X3D Series Desktop processors, however, that date is incorrect. We have not confirmed a launch date at this time. We will provide updates on the expected availability of these processors at a future date.”

So it seems that there will be no AMD love this Valentine's day.

Original Article:

AMD formally introduced its Ryzen 7000 X3D-series processors with 3D V-Cache at CES 2023, but it didn't say when these CPUs would be available. Thanks to the sharp eyes at Overclock3D.net, we now know that these new products will be available starting from February 14, 2023, according to AMD.com

All three Ryzen 7000 X3D-series processors feature the Zen 4 microarchitecture and are enhanced with an additional 64MB of L3 3D V-Cache. According to AMD's listing, the eight-core Ryzen 7 7800X3D, 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X3D will hit the market on Valentine's Day, about a month from now. Recommended prices of the new Ryzen 7000 X3D CPUs are still yet to be disclosed. 

AMD formally positions its Ryzen processors with 3D V-Cache as some of the best CPUs for gaming, as additional cache significantly increases performance in gaming workloads.

AMD's Ryzen 7000 X3D CPUs have a locked multiplier and therefore do not support overclocking. However, you can use the automatic Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) performance-boosing feature, or use the Curve Optimizer to increase performance. Meanwhile, these processors are rated for a 120W TDP, so they will still require a sophisticated motherboard and a good cooling system to demonstrate their performance potential. 

The pricing for AMD's Ryzen 7000 X3D family of processors remains to be seen. Formally, these parts will sit above the company's overclockable Ryzen 7000X-series CPUs with an unlocked multiplier.

    I hope they give out chocolate as well with each day-1 purchase.

    Regards xD!

    A ton of folks jumped on the AMD train with the 5000 series. Folks just aren't upgrading so soon. This generation AMD and Intel CPUs should be slow sales in 2023.

    The most important issue affecting CPU and GPU sales is that games aren't demanding an upgrade! 2 and 3 year old CPUs/GPUs are still allowing for high res and high fps. Hardware is ahead of the software and it used to be the other way around.

    2011 hardware still kicking... I have here a xeon e5 2698v3 can match a 12900k :) but cpu cost 50 usd. Why spend tons of money if you can get a cheap chinese board, cheap twelve core (12usd) and cheap server grade ram...

    There is no way that it matches the 12900k in either single or multithreaded performance.

    I guess it really depends on what you're using the PC for.

    I do not believe there is a single circumstance that any CPU on a platform that old will outperform a 12900k in any aspect that isn't only available on a Xeon.

    Cinebench 23 scores for both single/multi:
    xeon e5 2698 v3 - 740 / 20,31712900k - 1974 / 27340

    People want CPUs inside their PCs to get the job done. It is not a showcase of "Muscles" or a "Fashion Show".
    Benchmarks are useless, and not all people care about saving 30 minutes of compute time for $500, they can wait, we can wait.

    As a WoW player, I would disagree on demanding an upgrade. It is severely CPU heavy. Even a 5800x3d is quite the leap, over a regular 5800x. My RX 6800, more often than not, is waiting on my 5800x. I never reach full GPU utilization, at 1440p, on a 170hz panel.

    My new 2696v3 can turbo unlock 38x more 103fsb can do 3914mhz all cores. Single core is nahhhh but multi core shines and I pay 93us
