Ryzen 5000: More CPUs with 3D V-Cache planned?

AMD could continue to make the aged socket AM4 relevant with new processors with 3D V-Cache.

AMD is planning a socket change this year: instead of the AM4 socket that has been used for many years, future Ryzen 6000 processors will need a motherboard with the AM5 socket. But AMD could use a trick to continue to ensure high demand for fast CPUs for the old AM4 socket. The manufacturer is rumored to be working on new Ryzen 5000 processors with stacked 3D V-Cache. Only the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is currently available, which can significantly improve performance thanks to the additional cache, especially in games and editing programs for audio and video.

3D V-Cache also has disadvantages

The fast Ryzen 9 CPUs in particular could now also be equipped with 3D V-Cache by AMD. This would continue to make the AM4 platform interesting for gamers and PC users. However, the additional cache also has disadvantages: The processors run at lower clock rates, the overclocking options are severely limited and the heat dissipation is not as good as with normal processors without 3D V-Cache.

Up to 192MB L3 cache

It is therefore still unclear whether AMD can also offer processors with 3D V-Cache for the AM5 platform right at the launch. To

New information on AMD’s new 3D V-Cache CPUs for the AM4 platform will be announced later this month. A hot candidate for an update with more buffer memory would be the Ryzen 5 5600. But the much faster Ryzen 9 CPUs would certainly attract many buyers with a doubled L3 cache totaling 128 MB or even 192 MB.
