Since CES 2022, enthusiasts have been waiting for the release of the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D, AMD’s first processor to feature AMD 3D V-Cache technology. The new caching technology improves gaming performance up to 15% more compared to processors without stacked cache technology. Alongside the new Ryzen 7 5800X3D are new Ryzen 7, 5, and 3 series processors and expanded chipset compatibility effectively increasing the AM4 platform’s shelf life.
