AMD Ryzen 9000X3D CPU will get full overclocking support in addition to new 3D V-Cache features


AMD's Ryzen 9000X3D CPUs will have full overclocking support at launch, a first for 3D V-Cache chips.

AMD is finally bringing overclocking support to its 3D V-Cache chips with the Ryzen 9000X3D CPUs

AMD's Ryzen chips with 3D V-Cache technology are considered to be the best gaming processors in the market. In all the gaming performance metrics and efficiency tests, one chip that stands out from the rest is the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, which has had great sales figures, but with the next generation, AMD is expected to not only enhance the out-of-the-box performance capabilities but also allow users to manually tweak them for a better experience.

Before we get into the details, let's rewind back to the first generation of 3D V-Cache CPUs, starting with the Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000 series. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D was the very first 3D V-Cache chip, with unmatched gaming value at the time. While the chip itself was great, the 3D V-Cache technology was relatively new for the time and AMD had to be a bit conservative with its first rollout. Things like temperatures and voltages were precisely managed and there were no tuning options available in the first generation.

With the second generation of 3D V-Cache chips introduced with the Zen 4-based 7000 series, AMD opened up some tuning options for enthusiasts, allowing EXPO memory overclocking capabilities as well as Precision Boost Overdrive and Curve Optimizer support. These chips proved to be a great follow-up to the Ryzen 5000X3D series and currently, you can find them at some nice discounts, perfect for new AM5 PC builders.

With the next generation, AMD has teased some cool new features for the Zen 5-powered Ryzen 9000X3D CPUs but we have managed to learn that those features include full support for OC. Yes, that’s right, it’s not just PBO or CO tuning, AM5 platform enthusiasts will get full overclocking support with the next generation of 3D V-Cache CPUs. This shows that AMD has fine-tuned the 3D V-Cache design for its chips, allowing users to overclock them as much as they want. There may still be some checks to protect the delicate 3D stack placed on top of each Zen 5 CCD, but having manual OC capabilities is going to attract a lot of enthusiastic overclockers to jump on the 3D V-Cache scene.

Apart from these, there are still some new features that we are expecting to learn about in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. As for memory overclocking and DDR5 support, we covered this in detail in our previous post which you can read here. The Ryzen 9000X3D CPUs are expected to launch close to the launch of the 800-series (X870E/X870) boards that will hit retail by the end of September.
