AMD Ryzen 5000 XT series is not the 3D Vertical Cache line

Last week, when AMD teased a Ryzen 5000 series processor with 3D Vertical Cache, it was assumed that this could be the upcoming Ryzen 5000 XT series. The inclusion of this new cache promises up to 15 percent gains in gaming performance -- which would be ideal for a product refresh.

But Twitter leaker Vegeta, known for several accurate AMD leaks, claims these are not the same. Vegeta posted that AMD's Ryzen 5000 XT series is now scheduled for a Q1 2022 release and that this is a different product than the 3D Vertical Cache model that was shown at the digital-only Computex 2021.

Basically, AMD's CPU roadmap becomes a bit less clear. We know the firm plans Zen 4 -ased Ryzen CPUs for a 2022 launch -- but it's still a bit of a mystery what we can expect in the in between period.
