AMD has asserted that the Ryzen 9000 series won’t offer faster gaming performance compared to the Ryzen 7000X3D

Thanks to its Zen 5 architecture, AMD ensures a solid 16% IPC boost for its upcoming high-performance processors, known as Ryzen 9000.

The company has showcased a phenomenal advantage of +56% over the flagship Intel Core i9-14900K processor in multi-threaded performance and a confident lead in gaming by +23%. However, in an interview with Tom’s Hardware, it was revealed that users currently utilizing the existing AMD Ryzen 7000X3D chip shouldn’t worry about upgrading to the non-X3D next-generation chip, as the company itself claims that the difference between the two chips is minimal.

This information came from Donnie Woligroski, senior technical marketing manager at AMD, who recently shared some interesting insights into the Ryzen 9000X3D “3D V-Cache” processors. AMD, which first showcased Ryzen 9000 “X” processors, was expected, as the company tends to release its X3D versions later, as seen with Ryzen 5000X3D and Ryzen 7000X3D, and with the launch of Zen 5, everything will be the same.

Donnie states that while the AMD Ryzen 9000 processors are a significant upgrade compared to their own Ryzen 7000X3D chips, the new chips may not offer much improvement or may not even be faster. He specifically mentioned that “X3D still remains king of the hill,” albeit with a slight lead. When comparing Ryzen 7000 “X” processors to Ryzen 5000X3D chips, the difference is quite significant, as the Zen 4 architecture was a big step forward (5800X3D versus 7800X3D).

Now, thanks to the AMD Ryzen 9000 series, Ryzen 7000X3D processors will still maintain leadership in gaming performance, but the difference between them will be smaller. And Ryzen 9000 will be much better at handling non-gaming tasks compared to Ryzen 7000X(X3D) models. Thus, you can take Ryzen 7000X3D as the foundation for today’s high-performance gaming performance on the AMD platform and add to them a very good improvement to expect from AMD Ryzen 9000X3D processors.

Of course, for users who care more about balanced performance, Ryzen 9000 processors offer greater value, especially in terms of higher TDP support, better overclocking capabilities, and much better multi-threaded performance. But for users who prioritize gaming above all else, it’s better to just wait until AMD announces Ryzen 9000X3D “3D V-Cache” processors. According to recent reports, these chips will be released in September, so you won’t have to wait long to see X3D with Zen 5 cores in action.
