AMD should release a Ryzen 5 5600X3D

Is AMD preparing more X3D processors? The answer is most likely yes, according to prolific leaker Greymon55 (opens in new tab) (via Techpowerup (opens in new tab)† The Ryzen 7 5800X3D (opens in new tab) is the only V-Cache equipped CPU to date. Proven to be an excellent gaming CPU, even beating Intel’s mighty 12900KS (opens in new tab) in titles that are cache sensitive. The 5800X3D has some flaws, but if AMD chooses to release it, there’s one CPU that could rise above it all.

The best option would be a 5600X3D. A 6-core/12-thread CPU is perfectly achievable in current titles, and the addition of 64MB of L3 cache on top of the 32MB of the base 5600X (opens in new tab) would yield 96MB of L3 cache. Same as that of the 5800X3D.
