AMD prepares new chipset driver optimized for Ryzen 7000X3D Series
AMD will release a new driver for its chipset series for the AM5 platform, which will come with optimizations that will benefit users planning to use the new AMD Ryzen 7000X3D Series CPUs with 3D V-Cache. These chips will arrive in a few days, and everything is already ready to be welcomed, including these optimizations.

AMD chipset driver 5.01.29.2026 WHQL.
This new driver version 5.01.29.2026 WHQL will help gamers with performance, as it has updates for the upcoming AMD Ryzen 7000X3D chipsets, i.e. the new Zen 4-based 3D V-Cache CPUs that are scheduled for release soon.
The new driver includes 3D V-Cache Performance OPtimizer 126.96.36.199 which works by notifying Windows about the asymmetric nature of the 3D V-Cache, and thus granting better performance in less parallel workloads. For example, during gaming. In addition, this version is specially optimized for Windows 10 and Windows 11 operating systems.

According to well-known Twitter user HXL (@9550pro on Twitter) it seems that there were some hints confirming these new drivers for the chipsets. However, most interested parties, as well reported by this user, will have to wait a bit longer. Nevertheless, HXL discovered that the company ASRock now offers the download for the Global and Chinese market, but only for the company’s X670E Taichi Carrara motherboard model. as you can see in the following image captured from ASRock’s website:
As you know, AMD is placing special importance on this 3D V-Cache, and is now taking a twist by placing the SRAM cache on a CCD instead of sharing it with a secondary CCD. The company found that it could maximize gaming performance through one CCD while allowing the second to benefit from the higher clock speeds. In theory, AMD expects a good compromise between single-threaded gaming performance over multi-threaded applications without sacrificing high clock speeds as occurred in series prior to the Ryzen 7000X3D.
In addition, it should be noted that all owners who already have a motherboard based on the AM5 chipset should update the motherboard firmware to its latest version: AGESA BIOS 184.108.40.206c if they want to upgrade to Ryzen 7000X3D CPUs.
