Rumor suggests that the AMD Ryzen 9000X3D (including 9800X3D) processors will have overclocking capabilities.

The much-awaited Ryzen 9000X3D processors from AMD are set to debut towards the end of September, promising unmatched gaming performance for a price below $500. These new CPUs will come equipped with an unlocked multiplier, granting users the ability to engage in traditional core overclocking. According to a report from WCCFTech, AMD’s upcoming gaming processors will be introduced with full overclocking support.

If the rumor holds true, the Ryzen 7 9800X3D and its companions will mark the first 3D V-Cache CPUs to incorporate overclocking capabilities. While the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, 7900X3D, and 7950X3D currently support Precision Boost Overdrive, EXPO/XMP memory overclocking, and Curve Optimization, they lack the traditional multiplier-based overclocking functionality.

AMD’s decision to restrict overclocking on these chips was primarily due to the impediment posed by the stacked 3D V-Cache die on the base CCD, significantly limiting heat dissipation. Consequently, these processors feature a lower TDP of 120W and an imposed Tj max temperature threshold of 89C as opposed to the 170W and 95C ratings seen on the rest of the Zen 4 SKU lineup.

The Ryzen 9000 processors are slated for release on the 31st of July, with the Ryzen 9000X3D models following in September or October. Although AMD acknowledges that the Ryzen 7 7800X3D outperforms the 9700X and 9950X in gaming, the performance variances are not substantial. Enthusiasts are advised to await the launch of Intel’s Arrow Lake-S or the Zen 5 X3D series.
