In the past few weeks, there have been rumors about the price of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D and the first technical data on the new Ryzen mini models. Today, AMD is officially confirming this information and offering a small update in the Ryzen cycle with the Ryzen Spring Update.
Small models for beginners are the beginning. Apparently, AMD doesn’t want to completely give way to its rival Intel here. So far, the Ryzen 5 5600X with six Zen 3 cores is the smallest model in the current Vermeer series, while the Ryzen 7 5700G and Ryzen 5 5600G models are cheaper but are based on Cezanne (also Zen 3 cores) and also have an integrated graphics unit that not everyone needs.
The new entry-level model is the Ryzen 3 4100, which follows the Ryzen 3 3100 and is also identical to it with four Zen 2 cores. Clock rates are higher with 3.8 GHz base and 4.0 GHz (previously 3.6/3.9 GHz). The Ryzen 5 4500 is positioned with six cores on top of it, which has no predecessor to the Ryzen 3000 series, at least in name. Here too, AMD is still using the Matisse design with Zen 2 cores. The Ryzen 7 4600G aims to bridge the gap between the Ryzen 3 4300G and the 4700G. AMD continues to build on the Renoir architecture with Zen 2 cores and integrated Vega graphics.

AMD has three new models for those targeting the current generation of Zen 3 and thus the Ryzen 5000 series. The Ryzen 5 5500 offers six cores clocked at 3.6 or 4.2 GHz. L3 cache is 16 MB. This is the Cezanne processor where the integrated graphics unit has been deactivated. So it only supports PCI Express 3.0. The Ryzen 5 5600 offers a full 32MB of capacity and also a higher push clock of 4.4GHz. AMD places the Ryzen 7 5700X between the Ryzen 5 5600X and the Ryzen 7 5800X, but unlike the Ryzen 7 5800X, it comes with a TDP of 65W.
So far we only know US prices for smaller models. AMD sets April 4 as the market availability period for Ryzen mini models. Now we come to the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which will be released a little later.
We already know the technical data of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. Now AMD sets the price as well as the start of sales. The first commercial processor with 3D V-Cache will be available from April 20th. AMD sets the price at $449. We estimate that this will be converted 1:1 in € and that the Ryzen 7 5800X3D will cost €449 accordingly.
AMD is also announcing official support for the Ryzen 5000 series for motherboards with the 300 chipset.

Unlike all other desktop models of the Ryzen 5000 series, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D does not have an “Unlocked for Overclocking” addition in the technical data. The topic has been boiled down in advance and there is no clarity yet. We asked AMD about the possibility of overclocking.
You have updated information on this “No information yet” And more details about the Ryzen 7 5800X3D should be available in the near future. Since motherboard manufacturers have already added processor support with BIOS including AGESSA 220.127.116.11b, the missing overclocking functionality should already be stored here.
In an interview with HotHardware, Robert Hallock talked about overclocking the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. The CPU voltage and CPU clock cannot be set manually. On the other hand, the Infinity Fabric watch and main memory should remain adjustable.
Hallock further explained that the CPU voltage is no more than 1.35 volts. The additional SRAM coupling is not only a production challenge, but also a challenge to implement a specific product with the usual range of functionality. For EPYC processors, which are the actual goal of developing a 3D cache in the form of Milan-X, these limitations do not matter.
If there is also a 3D V-Cache for future processors based on Zen 4, it will be interesting to see if manual overclocking of the CPU clock and CPU voltage will be possible.
