AMD celebrates Ryzen’s 5th anniversary with a special video presentation from John Taylor, Director of Marketing, and Robert Hallock, Director of Technical Marketing. While the Red team changed the balance in the processor market with Ryzen processors, it managed to rise to the leading position with its Zen 3 architecture and 5000 series.
With this presentation, new information was given about the upcoming processors, including the release date. AMD has confirmed that the next Ryzen processors will launch in the first quarter of 2022. The new CPUs will be built with new CCDs (core complex die) combining the existing “Zen 3” microarchitecture and 3D Vertical Cache technology. The company says this change improves performance for games by between 4% and 25%.
No details were given about the naming of the updated processors. In other words, we can see new processors with the name Ryzen 5000 or Ryzen 6000. In fact, if we look at the PCs recently approved by HP, it can be directly named Ryzen 7000.
AMD also confirmed that Ryzen processors, which will feature the Zen 4 microarchitecture, will be released in 2022. With this architecture, high IPC increases are aimed and a new competition with Intel will begin. More importantly, there will be a transition to a new platform with the AM5 socket structure. This platform will offer DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0 technologies together.
Red team confirmed that coolers compatible with Socket AM5 will be backward compatible with Socket AM4. In addition, there will be no need for any apparatus or other tool to use these coolers. Finally, let’s take a look at all the known and expected details of the next generation processors in lists.
