According to the latest industry rumors, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D will not be the best gaming CPU that you can buy Interestingly, this achievement will not keep you in power Intel, but will own you the AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D when it hits the market a long time later.
It must be remembered that both the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D and the Ryzen 9 7900X3D will arrive next February 28th. Of course, the AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D will not arrive Until 6 April. Now we know another reason why this CPU has been delayed.
The AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D would cannibalize the sales of the Ryzen 9 7950X3D itself
For this CPU to arrive later, it was a clear indication that it was going to cannibalize practically the entire high-end ‘non-X3D’ Ryzen 7000 series. But what was unknown until now is that this delay also will help drive sales of his older brothers: Ryzen 9 7950X3D 16-core, and the Ryzen 9 7900X3D 12 core.
This is due, since according to the leaker @9550prohas revealed that thanks to the highest frequencies of its Core Complex Die (CCD), together with 3D V-Cache memory, will offer better performance than its older brothers at a lower price. At least, we want to think that only in gaming, since these CPUs are focused on the gaming experience. It is logical that in professional applications cores are decisive to compensate for any performance loss associated with their being slower.
In essence, lower frequencies will affect performance in workloads that need high clock rates. We saw proof of this a few days ago, where the Ryzen 9 7950X3D was slower than the Ryzen 9 7950X on Geekbench. In this way, in any application that does not take advantage of the additional cache, the performance of these CPUs will be lower due to lower frequencies for the cores. In this way, the user will have to take a good look at which of these CPUs it is convenient for them to buy.
Ryzen 9 7950X3D and Ryzen 9 7900X3D reviews are released on February 27
Following up on the reports of another leaker, the well-known @momomo_usthe reviews of these first CPUs will see the light next February 27. That is, just one day before they are officially launched on the market. With this, the user will be able to collect the necessary information to know if they really are a good investment, if it is better to wait for the Ryzen 7 7800X3D. Or of course, resort to the Intel option, since the price will be decisive to ensure the success of these CPUs.
For now, the most affordable CPU will be the Ryzen 9 7900X3D. Officially, this processor will go on sale at a suggested retail price of $599. This means that its price could be around 700 euro in our market. No matter how good a CPU it is, we are talking about 700 euros, plus 300 euros for a decent motherboard, plus RAM. So we’re talking about more than 1,000 euros for the basic combo when forming an AM5 platform. When the Ryzen 7 7800X3D arrives, things won’t improve either.
With these prices things get complicated. The AMD Ryzen 7000 have not enjoyed any popularity due to its high price. It’s more, the Ryzen 5000 they have taken all of AMD’s sales, and even eroded Intel’s market share. Now, with this new price increaseeverything indicates that these CPUs will also debut without glory beyond analysis see them published.
