AMD first announced the 5800X3D during CES 2022, noting that it would be the first Ryzen processor to feature its new 3D V-Cache technology which uses true 3D die stacking to hit some impressive cache specs.
AMD said the 5800X3D delivered a better gaming performance compared to processors without the stacked cache technology.
AMD tested its flagship chips on games like Watch Dogs Legion, Far Cry 6, Gears 5, Final Fantasy XIV, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and CS:GO at 1,920 x 1,080 resolution and high in-game quality settings.
The lineup of six new CPUs goes all the way up to the Ryzen 7 5700X that costs $299. The eight-core processor is built on AMD’s Zen 3 architecture and has a 36MB cache and support for Gen 4 PCIe.
While all the new Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 CPUs will be bundled with an AMD Wraith Stealth fan, the 5700X will not get the same treatment.
Along with these new CPUs, AMD said it's extending support for Ryzen 5000 Series processors on AMD 300 series chipsets, including the new processors announced today.
AMD may be setting some new bars with its flagship 5800X3D, but it’s nice knowing that they’re still interested in making a range of CPUs that stretch all the way down to beginner budget builds.
Update: An earlier version of this article misstated which type of chips AMD announced.
