AMD Ryzen 5 5600X3D: Leaks and Speculation

According to a recent leak, there are rumors circulating about AMD’s upcoming processor, the Ryzen 5600X3D, which is believed to be based on the AM4 platform. This development is interesting as AMD has shifted to the AM5 platform for their current gaming CPUs. Returning to the AM4 platform would enable users to avoid the expenses associated with a platform upgrade, which would typically entail acquiring a new motherboard and DDR5 RAM.

The Ryzen 5 5600X3D shares the same “Vermeer” 3DV cache MCM architecture as the 5800X3D. It features 6 cores and 12 threads, with a base frequency of 3.30 GHz and a boost frequency of 4.40 GHz. These frequencies are both 100 MHz lower than those of the 5800X3D. Similar to its counterpart, the 5600X3D boasts a total of 96 MB of last-level cache, comprising 32 MB of on-die L3 cache and 64 MB of 3DV cache. The processor is identified by the OPN “100-000001176.”

Currently, no specific release date has been officially announced by any sources. Nevertheless, considering that the CPU’s specifications appear to be verified, it is highly likely that the 5600X3D will be launched in the near future.

If the release were to take place this year, it would mark AMD’s seventh desktop CPU launch in 2023 alone. Including the recently unveiled laptop chips, Z1 and Z1 Extreme, featured in the ASUS ROG Ally, AMD’s product lineup begins to approach the double-digit mark.

Nevertheless, there is a strong likelihood that AMD will introduce the AM4-based chip within this year, especially considering the recent decrease in pricing for the 5800X3D observed in various locations. This strategic move could be an attempt to address this pricing concern and offer a genuinely more affordable alternative for consumers. Considering the various factors at play, it is reasonable to speculate that the CPU could potentially be launched within the price range of approximately $200.
