These chips do not have the 3D V-Cache that came with the Ryzen 7 revision, the 5800X3D, but it is anticipated that it will be added in a future edition. The first CPU in AMD’s upcoming Zen 4 series, the AMD Ryzen 7000, will offer enhanced performance, support for DDR5 RAM, and PCIe 5.0 devices. Along with these upgrades, AMD will switch the CPU to the AM5 architecture, necessitating new motherboards. The new Ryzen 7000 CPUs will be released alongside the X670 motherboards, but the B-series, which is the B-series’ more affordable option, won’t be available until October or November.
