The retail channel prices for AMD’s new Ryzen 7000X3D “Zen 4” family of powerful Socket AM5 desktop CPUs were revealed today. The firm says that the 3D Vertical Cache (3DV cache) technology introduced by these CPUs significantly improves gaming performance, putting them on par with 13th Gen Core “Raptor Lake” processors like the top i9-13900K and perhaps even the i9-13900KS.
