AMD Ryzen 5 5600X3D Rumor Foretells of a Budget AM4 Gaming Champ

A red-team-centric leaker with a good track record has shared details of a purported AMD Ryzen 5 5600X3D that could vie for a spot on our list of best CPUs for gaming. The image, shared via chi11eddog, looks like a hastily snapped inventory or similar screen, with the new and unannounced AMD Ryzen 5 5600X3D listed alongside the tried and tested Ryzen 7 5800X3D. Some of the key specs of the purported new AM4 X3D affordable gaming champ are listed in the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, though we ask you to please add plenty of salt to this unsourced, unexplained leak.

We reviewed the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D less than a year ago when it was praised as a “new gaming champion” powered by 3D V-Cache – hence the X3D suffix. The first X3D chip from AMD impressively ranked top in our 1080p and 1440p gaming benchmark suite in June 2022. AMD’s 5800X3D had an ace in the hold thanks to its pioneering use of a total of 96MB of L3 cache via hybrid bonded 3D-stacked SRAM technology. According to today’s leak, the Ryzen 5 5600X3D will have the same capacious 96MB of L3 cache.
