NEW AMD Ryzen 5800X3D CPU


          After much media speculation and attention, AMD finally released their latest Ryzen 5800X3D processor in early April of 2022. Shortly after its release, it sold out from all major store shelves and online shops. But what really caused this much attention and excessively high demand?  AMD announced back in mid 2021 that the release of Ryzen 5800X3D would change the course of consumer processors as we know it; as this would be the first processor that will be using AMD's 3D V-cache technology.

        But what is exactly this technology? 3D V-cache technology is in essence stacked L3 cache that delivers for the first time 96MB of L3 cache to a desktop cpu. This much L3 cache, along with multiple cores and high clock frequency would make Ryzen 5800X3D the fastest gaming processor in the world, according to AMD.

            After multiple evaluations and test results indeed Ryzen 5800X3D lead in most AAA games  ahead of mostly every processor, even Intel's i9 12900K. This was mostly due to AMD's new technology that appears to have a great impact on gaming. But of course this improved gaming performance did not come without drawbacks. 5800X3D drew much more power that Ryzen 5800X, its close cousin and also its slightly less clock speed affected negatively its results on business applications and rendering. 

            So, Ryzen 5800X3D is a great choice when it comes to gaming and if you are only a gamer and you are looking for the best choice at the moment money can buy, Ryzen 5800X3D is your best option, especially at this price tag. But if you are also a business developer, photographer, part time video editor or in need to produce content besides gaming, Intel i7 12700 and Ryzen 5900X offer a more complete package. Both processors lead ahead Ryzen 5800X3D in business applications, rendering video software development and other business tasks.

            So even though AMD did prove a point that the size of L3 cache and 3D V-cache technology does make a difference in gaming, preference now is down to the consumer according to how he will use his time in front of the PC.
