AMD Ryzen 9000 is not faster than Ryzen 7000

Although we can of course look forward to performance improvements with the upcoming Ryzen 9000 series of CPUs from AMD, their own Ryzen 7000X3D chips can still stand as the winner.

With its Zen 5 architecture, AMD delivers a solid +16% IPC improvement to its next-generation high-performance CPUs known as Ryzen 9000. The company showed an impressive +56% lead over Intel's flagship Core i9-14900K CPU in multi-threaded applications and a solid +23% lead in gaming. However, according to an interview with Tom's Hardware, it appears that users running an existing AMD Ryzen 7000X3D chip will not need to upgrade to next-generation Non-X3D parts, as the company itself states that the difference between the two chips is small.


The information comes from Donny Woligroski, AMD's Senior Technical Marketing Manager, who recently highlighted some cool and exciting changes with the Ryzen 9000X3D "3D V-Cache" CPUs. AMD's showing of Ryzen 9000 "X" CPUs at first was somewhat expected, as the company tends to launch its X3D parts later, as we've seen with the Ryzen 5000X3D and Ryzen 7000X3D variants, and it will be the same with the Zen 5 launch.


Donny states that while AMD's Ryzen 9000 CPUs are a big upgrade over the competition, the new SKUs may not offer a huge improvement or even end up being faster compared to their own Ryzen 7000X3D chips. He specifically said that "X3D is still the king", although only by a small margin. If you compare Ryzen 7000 "X" CPUs with Ryzen 5000X3D chips, the difference is quite large, since the Zen 4 architecture was a big leap forward (5800X3D vs 7800X3D).


Now with the AMD Ryzen 9000 series, the Ryzen 7000X3D CPUs will still maintain the lead in gaming performance, but the difference between the two will be smaller. And Ryzen 9000 will be able to handle things much better in non-gaming tasks compared to Ryzen 7000X(X3D) SKUs. So one can take the Ryzen 7000X3D as the baseline for today's high-end gaming performance on the AMD platform and expect a very nice improvement with the AMD Ryzen 9000X3D CPUs.


Of course, for users who value balanced performance more, the Ryzen 9000 CPUs offer a lot of value, especially when it comes to their higher TDP support, better overclocking capabilities and much better multi-threading performance. But for users who prioritize gaming above all else, it's a better decision to wait until AMD announces the Ryzen 9000X3D "3D V-Cache" CPUs. These chips are expected to launch in September according to the latest reports, so you won't have to wait long to see the next X3D launch with Zen 5 cores in action.
