It’s been a while, but AMD’s first desktop processor with 3D V-Cache is finally on its way. AMD will release the eight-core Ryzen 7 5800X3D on April 20 for $449. That’s the same price as the old 5800X when new, but the company is clearly betting that the much larger combined cache (100MB vs. 36MB) will help justify the expense . AMD claimed in January that the 5800 X3D could outperform both the Ryzen 9 5900X and Intel’s Core i9 12800K in 1080p gaming, though it’s safe to say real-world results may vary.

There are also some definitely more affordable CPUs if you’re more interested in value for money than sheer speed. AMD has introduced six budget Ryzen chips, including three Zen 3 models. The six-core Ryzen 5 5500 only supports up to PCIe Gen 3, a 4.2GHz boost clock, and 19MB of cache, but at $159 (including cooler), it should be the most accessible Zen 3 component yet. Step up to the $199 Ryzen 5 5600 and you’ll get PCIe Gen 4 support, a 4.4GHz boost clock and 35MB of cache. The $299 Ryzen 7 5700X, meanwhile, is built for the sweet spot with eight cores, a 4.6GHz boost, and 36MB of cache, though you’ll need to bring your own cooler.

Those who like to settle for Zen 2 have cheaper options. The four-core Ryzen 3 4100 peaks at 4GHz with 6MB cache for $99 with cooler, while the Ryzen 5 4500 jumps from $129 to six cores, a boost from 4.1GHz and 11MB cache. Price-conscious gamers can pick up a $154 Ryzen 5 4600G with Vega-class Radeon graphics, a peak clock of 4.2GHz, and 11MB of cache.

All six cheaper CPUs should be available from April 4. We wouldn’t be surprised if the prices for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D go higher given ongoing chip shortages, but they represent solid values ​​on their official stickers. They could also do the trick if you lean AMD and can’t wait for the Zen 4 based hardware to arrive late this year.
