AMD discusses Zen 3, Zen 4, RDNA 2 and RDNA 3 roadmaps

On the occasion of the announcement of its financial results, AMD sought to discuss its roadmap. The giant confirmed its calendar around its various CPU (Zen 3 and Zen 4) and GPU architectures (RDNA 2 and RDNA 3).

During this conference call, AMD revealed some interesting information about the future of its product catalog. Above all, the giant took the opportunity to reassure investors. How can this happen? The group pointed out that its roadmap was stable and predictable, unlike that of its competitors.

AMD Roadmap – Zen CPU Architecture

Again, the Zen 3 processor architecture is expected to arrive before the end of the year. It will be deployed in the consumer and data center market. It will, therefore, apply to the next generations of Ryzen and Epyc (Milan) processors.

At the same time, the 7nm RDNA 2 GPU architecture will find its way into the consumer market. It will support ray tracing and variable rate shading technologies while providing an optimized power per watt ratio.

We also learn that deliveries of semi-custom SOC chips have begun for the upcoming Sony and Microsoft game consoles. They will enable mass production of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, so the market will be ready for the holiday season, and the rest will come, but without further details. AMD is talking about the RDNA 3 architecture for 2021, but without specifying the engraving finesse.

The great boss, Lisa Su, also spoke briefly about the microarchitecture of the “Zen 4” processor. In the laboratory, she seems to have fulfilled initial expectations, taking advantage of the benefits of 5nm engraving.
