Not only Ryzen 8000, but also new X3D chips are in the works at AMD. The CPU manufacturer is set to introduce 19 different models in the coming months
Intel has brought very little movement to the market with the 14th generation of its processors – see also the video below. AMD probably sees this as a sign to go full steam ahead and will introduce a whopping 19 new CPU models within just a few months
These include the first Ryzen 8000 CPUs as well as the somewhat surprising resurgence of the 5000X3D processors with 3D-V cache.
New Ryzen 5500X3D, 5700X3D and the great unknowns
One of the most popular gaming processors in recent years is probably the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which was able to deliver an unimagined performance boost in games with the 3D V-Cache, among other things
No wonder AMD is adding new options to this popular CPU: these include the Ryzen 5 5500X3D and Ryzen 7 5700X3D, which according to a leak from the portal “(sakhtafzarmag)” are scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2024.
The two new processors should fit perfectly into the existing portfolio of Ryzen 7 5800X3D and Ryzen 5 5600X3D. The well-known leaker (chi11eddog) has already made the alleged specs available on the platform formerly known as Twitter X, which we summarize for you in the following table:
New AM4 Ryzen 7 5700X3D and Ryzen 5 5500X3D are coming ? 🧐🧐🧐
5700X3D: 8C/16T, 4.1GHz/3.0GHz, 96MB L3 cache,
5500X3D: 6C/12T, 4.0GHz/3.0GHz, 96MB L3 cache

|Ryzen 7 5700X3D
|Ryzen 7 5800X3D
It is unclear what power consumption the two new Ryzen processors will have. However, it is conceivable, especially in the case of the Ryzen 5 5500X3D, that AMD can achieve a TDP of 65 watts, which would make the new CPU an extremely efficient model.
Possible prices have not yet been leaked – but if the release date mentioned at the beginning is correct, we won’t have to wait much longer for confirmed information.
The leak also mentions three more AMD processors from the Ryzen 5000 series. These are the Ryzen 5 5600GT and 5500GT – the CPU manufacturer had not previously used the “GT” suffix, so it is difficult to give any indication of possible specifications.
However, there is a hint, because the G suffix itself already exists in the Zen 3 generation, for example in the Ryzen 5 5600G. This falls into the and relies on an integrated Vega graphics unit in addition to the aforementioned Zen 3 architecture. It is quite possible that the Ryzen 5 5600GT and 5500GT fall into the same family
Last but not least, AMD is also introducing a Neural processor within this series: The “Ryzen 7 5700 NPU” is said to have a namesake Neural Processing Unit, which is particularly intended for AI workflows. However, no further technical data is known, more detailed information is also expected at the end of January 2024
Ryzen 8000G: New APUs in the starting blocks
Of course, the next generation of CPUs from AMD is also eagerly awaited, which will most likely be called Ryzen 8000 . A total of 14 different models have now appeared in this portfolio along with their technical data – but these are not new Zen 5 processors.
The sakhtafzarmag report claims to have discovered the specifications for the 8000G series, which is based on the Phoenix APU Zen 4 or Zen 4c and is based on the Phoenix APU. There are four main models that serve as the basis for further modifications:
|Ryzen 3 8300G
|Ryzen 5 8500G
|Ryzen 5 8600G
|Ryzen 7 8700G
The processors mentioned have already been confirmed to a certain extent, as motherboard manufacturer Gigabyte, among others, has announced (AGESA ComboAM5PI 184.108.40.206) a new beta firmware intended for AM5 APUs.
In this context, Gigabyte also stated that
the upcoming next-generation AM5 APU will be launched in 2024 . A presentation at CES 2024, which will take place in Las Vegas from January 9 to 12, 2024,
is considered likely.
In addition to the 8000G processors, the portfolio will be expanded to include further derivatives. These include models with the “GE” suffix, which are primarily characterized by a lower power consumption of 35 watts – the “E” in the name probably stands for efficiency here.
The number of cores and threads should not change in the comparison between G and GE CPUs, but the base clock rate should be around 100 megahertz lower in all cases. It is also noticeable that the Ryzen 5 8600G and Ryzen 7 8700G do without such a GE model for unexplained reasons
In addition each CPU is joined by a “PRO” model, which is supposed to be intended for business and workstation customers, but based on the supposed technical data at least shows no differences.
This again lists GE variants of the Ryzen 5 PRO 8600G and Ryzen 7 PRO 8700G – the naming chaos is partly reminiscent of Intel’s new naming scheme!
Thus AMD is planning a total of 14 new launches for the Ryzen 8000G series, which are structured as follows:
- Ryzen 3 8300G / 8300GE / PRO 8300G / PRO 8300GE
- Ryzen 5 8500G / 8500GE / PRO 8500G / PRO 8500GE
- Ryzen 5 8600G / PRO 8600G / PRO 8600GE
- Ryzen 7 8700G / PRO 8700G / PRO 8700GE
Together with the five new Ryzen 5000 processors, AMD seems to have a lot planned for the first quarter of 2024
The CPUs mentioned are also likely to represent a kind of transition to the upcoming Zen 5 generation – AMD allegedly wants to outstrip Intel with the Ryzen 9 8950X and other processors from mid-2024.
Now we need your opinion: How useful do you think new X3D processors of the previous generation are? Do you have a CPU with 3D-V cache in your computer or do you use a different model? Do the new 8000G processors sound interesting to you or are you waiting until AMD presents the “real” successors to Zen 4? Let us know in the comments below:
