Tips and tricks for buying AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D and 7900X3D processors

It’s undeniable that there is demand for high-performance computer components, such as CPUs and GPUs, and the supply can be limited, causing them to sell out quickly. This is particularly true for new releases or highly anticipated models like the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D and 7900X3D.

We’ve seen multiple innovative ways in which people closely track the availability and restocks of high-in-demand products. To mention a few, people track relevant Twitter and Reddit threads and set up notifications when new comments and discussions about restocks happen. The second thing we’ve noticed is people use apps and websites that are dedicated to product restock updates. Another popular and efficient method people use are website change monitoring services. It allows tracking product pages online and sends push notifications as soon as “out-of-stock” changes to “add-to-cart”. Since this is an automated, easy-to-set-up method people tend to opt for them. We will discuss more about these services in the coming sections.

First, let’s take a look at the Ryzen 9 series and all the buzz that surrounds it, shall we?

AMD’s amazing 3D V-Cache technology will soon be available in AMD’s Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs. AMD has announced that the Ryzen 9 7950X3D and 7900X3D will begin selling on February 28th, 2023. With this AMD claims to amp up the PC gaming scene and promises a productivity increase for processor heavy applications.


Ryzen 9 7950X3D processor

  • The Ryzen 9 7950X3D will have 16 cores, 32 threads, a 120-watt default TDP, a maximum boost frequency of up to 5.7GHz, and 145MB of total L1, L2, and L3 cache.

  • This CPU is compatible with Windows 11 - 64-Bit Edition, Windows 10 - 64-Bit Edition, RHEL x86 64-Bit, and Ubuntu x86 64-Bit. AMD also claims that this will be the “ideal processor for gamers and producers,” with promises of 15-25 percent improved performance in CPU-bound 1080p games. You can find the detailed specifications of the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D here.

  • The Ryzen 9 7900X3D on the other hand, will have 12 cores, 24 threads, a 120-watt default TDP, a maximum boost frequency of up to 5.6GHz, and 140MB of total L2 and L3 cache.

  • Like Ryzen 9 7950X3D, this CPU is also compatible with Windows 11 - 64-Bit Edition, Windows 10 - 64-Bit Edition, RHEL x86 64-Bit, and Ubuntu x86 64-Bit. You can find the detailed specifications of the AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D here.


The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D will cost $699, compared to its non-X3D sibling AMD Ryzen 9 7950X which is said to retail at $599

The most anticipated SKU in the Zen4 X3D product portfolio, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, will cost $449, although it will not be available until April 6, 2023. Please keep in mind that these are “suggested” costs and may vary depending on local taxes, retailers and other considerations.

Is AMD’s 3D V-Cache technology in Ryzen 7000 X3D a “game changer”?

AMD’s first desktop processors to utilize 3D V-Cache technology was Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which has potentially changed the “game” for people who place a high value on AV-Cache technology. It has also outperformed its own contemporary Ryzen 5900X and Intel’s 12th Gen Core i9-12900K in PC gaming.

More about the technology: AV-Cache is designed to improve memory performance in data-intensive applications, such as video editing, 3D rendering, and scientific simulations. This could result in significant improvements in performance and speed, especially in these types of applications. AMD suggests that the AV-Cache-infused chips are the first gaming chips to use its 3D stacking tech, which allows for a roughly 15-25 percent boost in gaming performance. For more details about the AV-Cache-infused Ryzen chips, you can refer to this article.

How to track AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D and 7900X3D CPUs

The AMD website gives everyone the option to sign-up for notifications about release day information and product details. However these notifications tend to get delayed and come much later than the actual release time. This is because you are subject to AMD’s mailing queue. Companies usually have conservative number of products in stock for launch days and a delayed mail notification can lead to you losing out on the coveted processors. Especially on launch day, demand surpasses the supply and you will be greeted with an not so friendly “out of stock” message. Bummer, right?
