AMD’s Ryzen 9 7950X3D pricing keeps the pressure on Intel

AMD announced pricing and availability for the upcoming Ryzen 9 7950X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D and Ryzen 7 7800X3D on Tuesday. The two Ryzen 9 chips arrive on February 28th and the Ryzen 7 7800X3D arrives late on April 6th. But more importantly, flagships don’t come with price increases.

Suggested retail prices are $700, $600 and $450 for the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D and Ryzen 7 7800X3D respectively. The Ryzen 9 7950X3D debuts at the same price as the base Ryzen 9 7950X, while the Ryzen 7 7800X3D costs $50 more than the currently available Ryzen 7 7700X. The price of the Ryzen 9 7900X3D has also increased by $40-50.

Both Ryzen 9 models cost more than AMD’s recommended pricing, though not with a price increase. AMD’s Zen 4 processors sold poorly, with the Ryzen 9 7950X selling for between $550 and $600 and the Ryzen 9 7900X selling for close to $400.

These changes almost bolster the Ryzen 7000 processors at a lower price point. AMD hasn’t made an official announcement, but we don’t expect prices to rise again once the 3D V-Cache processors are released.

These have been AMD’s hotly anticipated processors since the company announced them earlier in the year. The 3D V-Cache technology behind the chip propelled the previous generation Ryzen 7 5800X3D to the top of the charts as the best gaming processor, and it still holds that spot when the next generation processors arrive.

Ryzen 9 7950X3D Ryzen 9 7900X3D Ryzen 7 7800X3D
core/thread 16/32 12/24 8/16
base/boost clock 4.2GHz/5.7GHz 4.4GHz/5.6GHz 4.XGHz/5GHz
cache size 144MB 140MB 104MB
power consumption 120W 120W 120W

But this time it’s different. In previous generations, AMD only released a single processor with 3D V-Cache. The company is expanding the technology in its current product stack with the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, which packs a 3D V-Cache with all 16 Zen 4 cores found in the base processor.

AMD claims the flagship Ryzen 9 7950X3D is up to 24% faster than Intel’s Core i9-13900K in games and between 4% and 52% faster in productivity apps. The latter was the Achilles heel of the previous generation. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D was overpowered by other processors outside of gaming (read our Ryzen 7 5800X3D review for details).

According to AMD, these processors are built to address the problems of previous generations. However, gaming remains the main focus. Compared to the previous generation, AMD says the Ryzen 7 7800X3D is up to 30% faster, and gamers can expect an average 15% improvement.

It’s clear that AMD is going all-out to top the list of best processors, but we’ll have to wait until we get our hands on these processors to test them out for ourselves. As we saw with the recent Ryzen 5 7600, AMD’s affordable Ryzen 7000 processors can have unexpectedly high performance.

The new processors are included in AMD’s Ryzen 7000 gaming bundle promotion, which offers free digital codes for upcoming products. Star Wars Jedi Survivor. The promotion is still ongoing, but the game recently crashed in late April from its original March release date.
