Ryzen 7 5800X3D is said to be without support for overclocking



AMD's upcoming Ryzen 7 5800X3D with 3D V-cache caught on picture. The processor is also claimed to be completely without support for overclocking.

AMD is expected to launch its first consumer V-cache 3D processor soon. This goes by the name Ryzen 7 5800X3D and offers a total of 100 MB of cache. This is because AMD has stacked extra cache circuits on top of the existing processor. However, the extra 64 MB of cache comes with its own drawbacks. AMD seems to have had to turn down the clock frequencies a bit to handle the heat generation and allow the processor to cool down properly. Now the processor is also claimed to be completely without any support for overclocking.


The information comes from the same person who published the above image which is said to show a disassembled 5800X3D. Whether this is actually true or not remains to be seen. One explanation may also be that the person has come across an engineering copy of the processor. An engineering copy where overclocking has simply not been implemented yet.

The Ryzen 7 5800X3D will offer eight cores and 16 wires. This together with a clock frequency of 3.4 GHz and a maximum turbo frequency of 4.5 GHz. As previously mentioned, the processor comes with a total of 100 MB of cache memory and its TDP has been listed by AMD as 105 W. Exactly when the launch will take place is unclear at the time of writing and its price tag as well. However, it has been rumored that it will land at around 450 dollars and that its sibling Ryzen 7 5800X will get a price reduction for not being at the same level.
