Reviews of the Radeon RX 7900 video cards showed that, in general, with overclocking, the adapters are pretty bad. However, it turned out that there is a nuance.
The TechPowerUp resource after the reference cards got the Asus Radeon RX 7900 XTX TUF OC for testing. Among other things, this card is distinguished by the presence of three power connectors (8 + 8 + 8) versus two for reference and many non-reference solutions. It is precisely because of the lack of power that most cards overclock poorly, as they quickly hit the power limit. In the case of the Asus adapter, there is no such problem, and it turns out that the Navi 31 has a very good frequency potential. Just around the same 3 GHz that AMD was talking about during the announcement. To be more precise, even higher, since the GPU frequency of the overclocked Asus card was at the 3.2 GHz mark. This provides an increase of almost 15% relative to the reference card. And in the same Cyberpunk 2077, the Asus adapter is already directly competing with the RTX 4090!
Thus, if you still really want an AMD video card, and the championship of the RTX 4090 haunts you, you can choose the right version of the RX 7900 XTX and overclock it well.
Or you can wait for the Radeon RX 7950 XT, which may still come out, since such a name was registered in the EEC database.

For the unique Ryzen 7000X3D processors, you will have to overpay pretty much. AMD Reveals Pricing
AMD has revealed prices for Ryzen 7000X3D processors with optional 3D V-Cache. And these prices look very interesting.
For example, the flagship 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X3D will cost $700, which is the same amount that was asked at the start for a regular Ryzen 9 7950X. True, after that, AMD has already managed to reduce the price of new products, so now the current flagship costs $ 575, so the difference with the new product will be significant.
The Ryzen 9 7900X3D will be asking for $600. The Ryzen 9 7900X started at $550 but is now selling for $475.
Well, the most affordable of the unusual CPUs – Ryzen 7 7800X3D – will cost $ 450. By comparison, the Ryzen 7 7700X launched for $400 but is now $350. Here you can also add that the 65-watt Ryzen 9 7900 costs $ 430, that is, cheaper than the new one.
In the end, we can say that you will have to pay a fair amount for 3D V-Cache ($ 100-125), but the same was with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. On sale new items will appear on February 28.
