AMD’s Zen 3 based Ryzen 5000 Vermeer processors are currently on sale in the market and are in great demand. However, a new USB-IF listing discovered by Komachi_Ensaka has revealed three new Zen 2 processors that have yet to be introduced.
The A1 revision Athlon Gold 4100GE, Ryzen 5 4500 and Ryzen 3 4100 processors appear on the list. We don’t know for sure if these chips use Zen 2 cores. However, all processors based on the Zen 3 architecture are called Ryzen 5000. Therefore, these chips are most likely based on the Zen 2 microarchitecture.
Judging by the naming, these AMD CPUs may be a refresh of some processors in the Ryzen 3000 series. On the other hand, let’s not forget the possibility of using only OEM computers.
The Ryzen 5 4500 and Ryzen 3 4100 may be the direct successors of the Ryzen 5 3500 and Ryzen 3 3100 models. While both processors had Zen 2 cores, they were limited to 65W TDP. Maybe we can see some increases in frequency rates with new products.
The Athlon Gold 4100GE can directly replace the Athlon Gold 3150GE. We do not know the details of the APU, which has an integrated graphics processor, but we can say that it is limited to 35W TDP, as the GE name suggests.
It is unknown when AMD submitted these chips to USB-IF. On the other hand, in addition to the three models, different models that we do not know may be planned. Our knowledge on this subject is very limited and we may see new developments in the coming days.
