Better Performance in Video Games on the AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D


AMD Ryzen 7000X3D processors with 3D V-Cache optimize performance automatically based on workload. The latest chipset driver will be able to dynamically allocate which core the Windows operating system will use. In other words, if the workload requires cache, the operating system will be altered to prioritize cores having 3D V-Cache. If frequency is more critical, higher frequency cores will be picked instead.

According to the business, this function is controlled by the driver, however it can be adjusted manually in the BIOS. Users will be able to choose between 'cache' and 'frequency' as they see fit.

AMD also says that the same drivers will include the PPM Provisioning File Driver. This feature is especially intended for gaming workloads because it dynamically allocates CCX with 3D V-Cache and parks unused CCX without additional cache. If more threads are required, the CCX without 3D V-Cache will also be enabled.

According to AMD, these features will boost performance depending on the workload, but the primary goal of both technologies is to boost gaming performance.

It's worth noting that these are aimed at Ryzen 9 7000X3D CPUs (7950X/7900X), as only these two of of three disclosed SKUs have an asymmetric chiplet design, with one CCX having 3D V-Cache and the other without. This issue does not occur on the single chiplet 8-core Ryzen 7 7800X3D, which will be available in April.
