Introduced back in 2022 with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, AMD’s 3D V-Cache was a big hit amongst gamers. Processors with lower synthetic scores (such as multi-threaded or single-threaded scores) but with 3D V-Cache on board perform better in games due to the extra cache that supercharges gaming performance!
