You can make a laptop or PC and be well-recognized, but if you don’t make gaming products, all your awards won’t make sense. In this sense, AMD and Intel have been in fierce competition for ages. No one is going to yield its positions. Recently, at CES 2022, AMD announced a new gaming processor, namely the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. Today, we finally got official confirmation of its launch date and price. As the company said, this processor will be available for purchase from April 20 with a price starting at $449. In fact, we are dealing with the “world’s fastest gaming processor. At least, AMD thinks so.

The newly-uncovered Ryzen 7 5800X3D has many things in common with the original Ryzen 7 5800X model. When saying this, first, we mean it comes with eight cores, 16 threads, and compatibility with AMD’s AM4 socket. However, there are a few differences as well. The biggest difference is that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D marks the debut of AMD’s 3D-stacking V-Cache technology. The latter will allow AMD to increase the L3 cache from 32MB to 96MB. The cache increase will help it translate to about a 15 percent boost in overall performance in comparison to the Ryzen 5900X. By the way, the latter comes with 12 cores and 24 threads.
