AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPU family will be further expanded in 2023 with the launch of the 3D V-Cache parts along with the entry-level A620 chipset.
AMD Ryzen 7000 CPU Rumors: 3D V-Cache Chips in 8/6 Core Flavors, A620 Chipset & Next-Gen APUs In 2023
As per Enthusiast Citizen at Bilibili, the leaker has reported that AMD has three major products that are planned for 2023.
AMD Ryzen 7000 3D V-Cache In 8-Core & 6-Core Flavors
The first and most obvious one is the Ryzen 7000 3D V-Cache lineup that was confirmed by us to be unveiled at CES 2023. It is reported that the lineup will have only two parts, an 8-core, and a 6-core variant. So it looks like we will be getting the Ryzen 7 7800X3D and the Ryzen 5 7600X 3D more or less. These CPUs will offer a 3D-Stacked chiplet design, featuring larger SRAM & providing users with higher gaming performance in cache-intensive titles. The result will be similar to the first-generation V-Cache chip, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which has become a popular chip due to its amazing performance and even more fantastic value.
APUs on AM5, Ryzen 7000G Planned For Late 2023
AMD won’t just stop at the 3D V-Cache parts, later in 2023, there is a next-gen AM5 Desktop APU lineup planned. This lineup will also fall under the Ryzen 7000 ‘G’ series family but is expected to launch in the second half of 2023. Currently, there’s no information available as to what these line of chips will offer but since they are going to be compatible with the AM5 platform, it is likely that these will be a variation of the Phoenix Point (Zen 4 + RDNA 3) APUs that will start shipping to mobiles in the early half of the year.
One interesting piece of information shared is that these Ryzen 7000 chips will only support DDR5-4800 memory which is a little lackluster considering APUs require all the bandwidth they can get. The chips will be available in 8-core and 6-core flavors too and there’s talk of enhanced models too though no information is provided yet.
A620 Taking AM5 To The Entry-Level
Finally, there’s an update on the A620 chipset platform. So far, AMD has confirmed X670 & B650 chipsets but the leaker states that the A620 chipset will be announced around Q2 2022 and will not offer CPU overclocking support. The entry-level platform would make sense with Non-X and low-end Ryzen 3 chips if AMD plans on launching them. This may solve the high pricing issue of the AM5 platform but given how restrictive the whole A620 chipset platform would be, it wouldn’t make sense to use these motherboards if you plan on benefiting from the longevity of the AM5 ecosystem.
