Storage devices have gotten really fast lately, with the fastest PCIe 5.0 SSDs getting over 14GB/s in reads and writes, but that's nothing compared to a Ryzen CPU with 3D V-Cache. Tested by hardware enthusiast and engineer Nemez all the way back in February, a Ryzen 7 5800X3D was able to hit 183GB/s and 175GB/s in... Read more...
A reputable leaker who has been reliable in the past suggests that AMD is about to expand its lineup of desktop processors equipped with stacked 3D V-Cache, though they won't be part of the Zen 4 family. Instead, upcoming additions will bolster AMD's previous generation Ryzen 5000 series based on Zen 3. They're also both mid-range SKUs, which Read more...
AMD's stacked 3D V-cache memory technology has been a big hit for PC gamers that are looking for the best performance out of their processors.
