Description of the processor

With the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D, AMD currently has its fastest gaming processor on offer. Like the very successful AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D also uses a significantly larger level 3 cache, which is connected to the CPU using the 3D stacking process. The manufacturing process of the cache is eponymous here.

Compared to the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X without a 3D cache, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D can access 128 MB of level 3 cache, the normal model has to be satisfied with half (64 MB). It is the first time that AMD has clocked its 3D processors at a similarly high rate as the normal models. This was made possible by AMD separating the clock frequency of the cache from that of the rest of the CPU.

Specifically, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D clocks at 4.2 GHz in the base, in turbo mode up to 5.7 GHz are possible. When all 16 CPU cores are loaded, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D still achieves a high clock frequency of 5.0 GHz. Unlike Intel, AMD has so far relied on CPU cores of the same size, while Intel uses a hybrid structure of larger and smaller CPU cores (P + E CPU cores).

For the first time, AMD is also installing an integrated GPU (iGPU) in its desktop processors in the Ryzen 7000 series. The AMD Radeon Graphics built into the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D uses only two execution units with 128 shaders and is more or less only used for image output. The graphics card is too slow for more demanding tasks or even games.

The AMD Ryzen 7000 processors are using the new socket AM5 for the first time, which, in addition to faster main memory (currently a maximum of DDR5-5200), also makes higher power consumption possible. The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D has a TDP of 120 watts and can consume a maximum of 170 watts via the PL2 configuration with sufficient cooling.

Like the predecessor AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D is also somewhat more temperature-sensitive and has a Tj max of 89°C. It is not approved for overclocking, but is allowed to use the AMD PBO2 automatic clock increase for the first time.
