AMD Announces Ryzen 9 7945HX3D: Ryzen Mobile Gets 3D V-Cache

For this year's ChinaJoy expo, AMD is taking to the show to announce a new and very special mobile CPU for high-end, desktop replacement-class laptops: the Ryzen 9 7945HX3D, AMD's first V-cache-equipped mobile CPU. Slated to launch on August 22nd, the new chip is set to break new ground for AMD in the mobile space, all the while giving gamers an even more potent CPU for high-end gaming laptops.

Based on AMD's cutting-edge 3D V-Cache packaging technology, which places an additional slice of L3 cache on top of the existing L3 cache on the core complex die (CCD), the Ryzen 9 7945HX3D marks the first time AMD has brought their extended L3 cache technology to the mobile space. And like the Ryzen desktop parts already featuring this cache, such as the Ryzen 9 7950X3D, AMD's aim is to offer buyers – and especially gamers – a top-end part that can offer even better performance in select classes of workloads that can take advantage of the additional cache.

The Ryzen 9 7945HX3D is joining AMD's current lineup of desktop replacement-class mobile SKUs, the Ryzen 7045HX 'Dragon Range' series, as its new flagship mobile part. First introduced earlier this year, the AMD Ryzen 7045HX series is designed to offer desktop-grade hardware and desktop-like performance, marking the first time in the Zen era that AMD has offered its desktop silicon in a mobile chip. The entirety of the 7045HX series is based on repacked desktop silicon, and the new Ryzen 9 7945HX3D is no exception – for all practical purposes, we're essentially looking at a mobilized version of AMD flagship desktop part, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D.
