The launch of AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D attracts nearer. In preparation for the launch, Gigabyte has launched a brand new BIOS for its 500 & 400 collection AM4 motherboards.
In response to a tweet from @KOMACHI_ENSAKA, the brand new BIOS contains AMD’s AGESA ComboV2 PI 126.96.36.199B microcode and covers Gigabyte’s X570, B550, A520, X470 and B450 product households.
Although it’s not explicitly acknowledged, the BIOS changelog for a few the fashions we checked out contains help for an ‘Upcoming New CPU’. Which is nearly definitely the 5800X3D. Different motherboard producers are sure to comply with with their very own BIOS releases.
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is an thrilling CPU because it’s the primary to incorporate an additional 64MB of vertically stacked cache. This may give it a complete of 96MB of L3 cache. It’ll embody 8 cores and 16 threads. Its base clock will likely be set at 3.4GHz with a lift clock of 4.5GHz. That is decrease than the 4.7GHz of the common Ryzen 7 5800X. The TDP stays the identical at 105W.

AMD lowered the clocks just a little as a way to match throughout the 105W TDP envelope, however which means that in case you have good cooling and a motherboard with a good VRM, there’s each probability that the 5800X3D may have good overclocking headroom.
AMD claims the 5800X3D can ship as much as 15% higher gaming performance than the bottom 5800X. Although that’s most likely going to be restricted to video games which can be delicate to a big and low latency cache. It could additionally find yourself as a low volume CPU.
Will the decrease clock velocity damage it considerably? Or will the additional cache be sufficient to offset it throughout every kind of workloads? We’ll have to attend and see the way it performs if or once we get it put in into our check bench someday within the spring.
