AMD 3D V-Cache Benchmarks Show Mixed Results For Milan-X CPUs

Yesterday, tech review site Chips and Cheese released a review of AMD’s new 3D V-Cache technology, showcasing its performance compared to previous generations of Zen processors. Chips and Cheese chose AMD’s EPYC server processors for this role, including the 3D V-Cache enabled EPYC 7V73 (Milan-X) and vanilla Zen 3 EPYC 7763 (Milan).

3D V-Cache is a new technology that AMD developed, allowing the L3 cache to be stacked vertically, which can significantly increase the size of the cache while using very little space. AMD has already demonstrated impressive performance gains with the new technology, as it allows the CPU cores to be fed with more information consistently.
