AMD unveils first mobile gaming processor

What To Know

  • Initially implemented in desktop processors the previous year, it is now becoming available in laptops equipped with the 3D V-Cache CPU.
  • The incorporation of 3D V-Cache allows AMD to include an extra 64MB of L3 cache onto the Ryzen 9 7945X3D mobile processor, bringing the total cache to an impressive 144MB.
  • In cases where the system cannot locate the required information in the cache, it must access the system memory, significantly slowing down processes—a situation AMD aims to mitigate through this enhanced cache capacity.
  • The company claims that the Ryzen 9 7945X3D is the fastest mobile gaming processor available, exhibiting an average performance increase of over 15 percent compared to the Ryzen 9 7945HX.

AMD has recently introduced its latest mobile gaming processor featuring the innovative 3D V-Cache technology. As implied by the name, this technology enables AMD to stack additional cache on top of the CPU. Initially implemented in desktop processors the previous year, it is now becoming available in laptops equipped with the 3D V-Cache CPU.

The incorporation of 3D V-Cache allows AMD to include an extra 64MB of L3 cache onto the Ryzen 9 7945X3D mobile processor, bringing the total cache to an impressive 144MB. The primary benefit of this augmented cache is the reduction of cache misses.

In cases where the system cannot locate the required information in the cache, it must access the system memory, significantly slowing down processes—a situation AMD aims to mitigate through this enhanced cache capacity. According to AMD, this 3D V-cache approach can substantially improve frame rates in gaming.

Unlike traditional methods of expanding the cache by increasing the chip’s horizontal dimensions, AMD’s approach involves stacking the cache vertically. By doing so, the company achieves a larger cache size without expanding the chip’s width or length, which would otherwise occupy more space on the motherboard. In essence, this allows AMD to achieve better CPU performance while keeping the horizontal real estate unchanged.

The company claims that the Ryzen 9 7945X3D is the fastest mobile gaming processor available, exhibiting an average performance increase of over 15 percent compared to the Ryzen 9 7945HX.

The processor boasts 16 cores, 32 threads, boost speeds of up to 5.4 GHz, and a 55W+ thermal design power (TDP). It is built on the Zen 4 architecture, showcasing AMD’s cutting-edge technological advancements.

Excitingly, consumers won’t have to wait long to experience the Ryzen 9 7945X3D’s capabilities firsthand. ROG’s Strix Scar 17 X3D machine, featuring this remarkable processor, is set to hit the market on August 22nd. With this launch, users can look forward to improved gaming performance and overall computing experience on laptops equipped with this groundbreaking CPU.
