AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D 3D V-Cache CPU Runs Cooler After Being Delidded
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU, the worlds first 3D V-Cache chip, has been delidded to achieve better thermals than the stock unit.
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU, World’s First 3D V-Cache Chip, Doesn’t Get Hot After Being Delidded
A photo of an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU was uploaded on Twitter by user Madness7771. We get to view the chiplets under its hood for the first time today. The single CCD and single IOD on the 5800X3D are surrounded by a tonne of capacitors, as would be expected. The 5800X3D, like all other Ryzen 5000 CPUs, includes a gold-plated solder and an indium-soldered design that improves heat conduction between the chiplets and the integrated heat spreader (IHS).
The silicon-protected components of the CPU include the solder point for the second CCD, which is not physically existent but has been sealed off to prevent contact with the IHS. The delidding procedure is now discussed. This is usually a challenging procedure regardless of the CPU, and the addition of several capacitors on the interposer’s periphery makes it considerably more challenging for users. However, none of the capacitors appear broken in the photographs, making it appear as though a flawless job was done.
The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU has a thin layer of L3 SRAM cache over the CCD in a 3D packaging, which is an interesting feature. This thin layer is extremely fragile and prone to harm. Additionally, AMD had to reduce the voltages and clock rates of the main CCD in order to protect the V-Cache. Because of this, even though many have discovered a way around it, overclocking is not “officially” permitted. The V-Cache still generates high temperatures even after the chip has been thermally constrained.
