AMD confirms that Ryzen 7 5800X3D does not support overclocks

According to the company, the new 3D V-Cache technology brings new limits of voltages and frequencies

THE OMG confirmed this Thursday (17) the rumors that the Ryzen 7 5800X3Dyour first CPU consumer-focused with 3D V-Cache technology will not support overclocks. THE information had already been sent to the manufacturers motherboards, which have been tasked with limiting how users can configure new hardware.

According to the company, the reason for the limitation is the fact that the 3D V-Cache system cannot work properly at high voltage. According to Robert Hallock, director of technical marketing for the manufacturer, this means that the ways in which the voltage and frequency of the processor the scale is very different than on previous models.

On the desktop parts you’ve seen us release in the past, there’s a variation of up to 1.45V or 1.5V in boost mode and that’s not the limit of V-Cache 3D. The voltage limit is closer to 1.3V to 1.35VHallock explained to the Hot Hardware site channel. He explains that the decision not to allow overclocking of the processor is linked to the fact that the version sent to stores already explores all voltage and frequency limits possible at present.

Ryzen 6 5800X3D brings a complex structure

In addition to investing in 3D V-Cache technology, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D also attracts attention for its complex structure, in which the new technology cache is installed on top of the “integrated” L3 Zen 3 cache. As Tom’s Hardware explains, bonding through silicon lanes makes the die surface non-uniform – to fix this, AMD installs heat-trapping silicon structural spacers and could hamper the overclocking process.

The voltage limitations of the new CPU are reflected in the frequencies offered to consumers: the base frequency of the model is 400 Mhz lower (200 Mhz, in boost mode) compared to the Ryzen 7 5800X for example. The use of new technologies should compensate for this, offering substantial performance improvements, especially in the gaming segment.

Among the company’s announcements are 5 6-core processors under $200

With the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, AMD introduced the 8-core Ryzen 7 5700X with 16 threads, 3.4 GHz base clock and 4.6 GHz Boost and five other models processors – 4 of them offering 6 processing cores with values ​​below US$199. It is expected that the company will continue to bet on other launches in the coming months, which will be based on both the architectures Zen2 How many Zen3.
