AMD's line of 3D V-Cache-enabled Ryzen 7000X3D CPUs doesn't launch until Tuesday, February 28th, but Newegg already has listings for both the Ryzen 9 7950X3D and Ryzen 9 7900X3D hidden on its site (as spotted by @momomo_us). Both listings show as out of stock and neither appears in Newegg's internal search. It's also possible that there's a listing stub for the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, which is also due out on Tuesday, but we were unable to find it.
These listings aren't particularly surprising as the chips were announced weeks ago, along with their availability date. Newegg doesn't show prices on these pages, but we already know that the MSRPs for the three chips are $699, $599 and $449 respectively. The links are below should you wish to bookmark them for easy access on launch day.
We already know a lot about these upcoming CPUs and we're about to learn more. There are rumors that the review posting date for these chips is February 27th. We also know that the chips will consist of two CCDs (core chiplet dies) that have half of the cores in them. One core will have the 3D V-Cache, making it ideal for gaming while the other core, without the 3D V-Cache, will be able to hit higher clock speeds.
Several benchmark scores have also leaked out, including one which shows the Ryzen 9 7950X3D beating the Core i9-13900K by an average of 11 percent when both chips were paired with an Nvidia RTX 3090 and tested in a set of five games. On one game, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, AMD's flagship chip won by a full 35 percent.
The chips start with the $449 Ryzen 7 7800X3D which features 8 cores, 16 threads and 104MB of cache, followed by the 12-core, 24-thread, $599 Ryzen 9 7900X3D and its 140MB of cache. The Ryzen 9 7950X3D is the flagship with 16 cores, 32 threads and 144MB of cache, along with a whopping $699 MSRP.

In preparation for the 7000X3D CPU's launch, motherboard vendors have been testing BIOS updates that will allow you to set the CCD priority for different tasks. A beta version of a BIOS for Asus's X670 motherboards was posted online last week.
If you're considering planning to build or upgrade a PC, these chips may be right for you. We'll withhold final judgment until we've had the chance to do our own tests.

Isn't the 7800X3D slated for April?

Yes, you are correct. This R7 SKU is launching in APRIL with a $449 USD price tag . We need to wait till the 6th of April.
It seems that AMD wants to target premium users first before they enter the market with the sub-$500 US mainstream X3D solution, as always is the case with any GPU vendor.
Having that out immediately would make it eat up the sales of the higher-end parts as is the case with the 5800X3D which has been the top-selling CPU at various retailers for several months owing to its unbeatable price-to-performance value in the gaming segment.
The motherboards will need bios update? Or will work out the box?Reply

Why with the writing like this? Ooooh, there are rumors. Dude just stop. It's not like you don't have one and won't have a benchmark article up tomorrow as soon as the embargo lifts. You don't need to act like it's some big secret that you're not in on.
From what I've gathered, with the NDAs they sign, they can't even say they got samples that they're testing!doughillman said:

Some MOBOs will require a firmware/BIOS update, whereas some latest models will have support from 'out of the box'. In fact many board partners have started offering updated BIOS to support the upcoming X3D processors, some are in BETA status though, but they will have full support for X3D SKUs.
Most likely the AGESA 126.96.36.199c BIOS for X670 & B650 motherboards. ASROCK, MSI and ASUS have already started offering updated firmware BIOSes.
Link for ASROCK:
ASRock > X670E Taichi
Meanwhile, ASUS also has a BETA BIOS which updates to the AGESA 188.8.131.52c firmware and adds support for the Core Flex feature for AMD Ryzen 7000 X3D CPUs.
MSI has also rolled out AGESA 184.108.40.206c BIOS for X670/B650 boards. SMU version has been updated to 84.79.218. Also a new feature dubbed as "Enhanced Mode Boost" has been introduced.
There are in total 3 profiles offered to boost 7950X3D/7900X3D performance. Following is the full description of the MSI AGESA 220.127.116.11c BIOS firmware:Update to SMU 218 which has optimized performance for Ryzen 7950X3D and 7900X3DNew feature: Enhanced Mode Boost – MSI PBO profiles for better 7950X3D/7900X3D performanceNew feature: High-Efficiency Mode for tight RAM timings and better RAM performanceMSI MEG X670E ACE, E-ATX, AMD Ryzen 7000 Series, AM5, 22+2+1 phase, DDR5 PCIe 5.0, 10G LAN, Wi-Fi 6E
BTW, the following is the SMU of the AGESA 18.104.22.168c BIOS firmware.
There are rumors that the review posting date for these chips is February 27th.
Truly bizarre, especially when posted the day before on a site that obviously has the chips.
See you all at noon.
Kind of off topic, but did you guys see this review for a simulated Ryzen 7 7800X3D CPU ? Kind of interesting. Gives more incentive to get this R7 SKU instead of the R9 X3D parts.Reply
Tech outlet, TechPowerUp, managed to simulate the results of the AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D by disabling the single Non-3D CCD of the Ryzen 9 7950X3D.
Thanks for providing these links, NOT !Admin said:Vendors are gearing up for Tuesday's big AMD CPU launch.

Now everyone out there (scalpers) with a Bot will just instantly buy up the inventory. Home Users will once again be looking at "out of stock".
