Next-generation Ryzen processor based on Zen4 architecture will be released in 2022

Chief Marketing Officer John Taylor and Technical Marketing Director Robert Harlock appeared in a special Ryzen 5th Anniversary presentation video released by AMD, sharing information about the following two Ryzen processors.

AMD Confirms 'Zen 3' with 64 MB 3DV Cache for Q1-2022, 'Zen 4' Later, PCIe Gen5 + DDR5 | TechPowerUp

One of the processors is the latest CPU core composite die with 64MB of 3D Vertical Cache (3D V-Cache) memory added to the existing Zen 3 architecture, improving game performance by 4% to 25% and new. It is said that it has achieved the performance improvement required for generation processors. It will be available in the first quarter of 2022.

It is unclear whether this processor will be a continuation of the Ryzen 5000 series or a new 'Ryzen 6000'. Also, I don't know if the CPU socket is also a new design, or if it will be an existing Socket AM 4 with DDR4 memory and PCI-Express Gen4.

The other processor is based on the new microarchitecture Zen4, which is scheduled to appear in 2022, and aims to improve IPC (Instruction Per Cycle) and win the competition with Intel. The Zen4 based one will introduce Socket AM 5, and it will enable 'next generation I / O' with a 1718 pin LGA package. With the combination of DDR5 memory and PCI-Express Gen5, we will challenge Intel. The product will be available in 2022.

Socket AM 5 is backward compatible with Socket AM 4 and the cooler can be used as it is.

With this roadmap announcement, it is highly probable that 2021 will be the year when new Ryzen products will not appear.
