As the CES 2022 event approaches, we expect Zen 3 processors, Threadripper PRO 5000 series and Ryzen 6000G mobile processors updated with 3D V-Cache, along with new display cards on the AMD side. However, judging by the statements of an AMD official, we will learn new details about the Zen 4 architecture in a few weeks.
AMD CTO Mark Papermaster confirmed in an exclusive interview that the Zen 4 architecture will be part of the CES 2022 press conference. Still, the focus of the launch will be Zen 3 architecture powered by 3D V-Cache cache technology.
According to the company official, we will learn some details about Zen 4 soon and more announcements will be made in 2022. It seems that AMD isn’t ready to reveal product specs yet, but they can briefly talk about key changes.
The red team mentioned last month the EPYC Genoa expected in late 2022 and the EPYC Bergamo server chips expected in the first half of 2023. The company is also preparing the Raphael (perhaps Ryzen 7000) and Phoenix family of APUs for consumers.
According to the leaks, AMD Raphael will expand to desktop and mobile platforms with up to 16 cores. On the other hand, we see a high probability that DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 support will come with these chips. Chips with the Zen 4 microarchitecture will be released in 2022, with rumors suggesting that an official announcement could be made at Computex 2022.
