AMD Ryzen 7000 mobile processors can feature 3D V-Cache to boost gaming performance to the same level as 60W RTX 3060 Mobile [Report]

AMD’s next-generation Ryzen 7000 mobile processors, codenamed “Phoenix”, may feature a stacked 3D V-Cache to improve gaming performance despite using onboard RDNA 2 graphics. In an industry first, it will be the first integrated GPU to come with 3D stacked L3 cache, something only the Ryzen 7 5800X3D has managed to date. And it’s a desktop processor with no integrated graphics to boot.

AMD plans to launch three stacks of Zen 4 processors over the next 12 months, namely Raphael, Dragon Range and Phoenix. These will be aimed at the desktop, high-performance mobility and ultrabook markets respectively. Raphael and Dragon Range will likely be based on the same chiplet die architecture with 16 cores and 32 threads and a base TDP of 55-65W. Phoenix will be a 15-28W APU with a monolithic 8-core die.

AMD would seek to compensate for the relatively low core count and TDP with a large L3 cache. It’s unclear if V-Cache is for the CPU or the GPU, or both, but I’m willing to bet it will be. exclusive to the GPU. Ryzen 7000 mobile processors, including Phoenix and Dragon Range, are expected to launch in the first half of 2023 during AMD’s CES 2023 keynote.
