So far we have the Zen 2 architecture available, but many want to know as much as possible about Zen 4 (although Zen 3 has not been released). Many hope to find an unbeatable Ryzen range at an affordable price. For now, Ryzen 5000 is expected to land in the first quarter of 2021. Here are the details.
Prior to its introduction, we know Zen 3, which will be the last architecture to include the AM4 socket. If the data we process is accurate, the Ryzen 4000 desktop will arrive in the second half of 2020 and will be compatible with AM4, DDR4 as they will have a 7 nm+ process.
As for the Zen 4 (AMD Ryzen 5000), we know that the chips will have the same 7 nm+ lithography, but the difference would be in a possible socket change, as with DDR5 RAM support.
Rumors about the 5nm process are not true, as the only possible changes are to the socket and RAM technology. However, the launch schedule proposed by our PCHG colleagues is somewhat risky, as there would be a 6-month difference between the Zen 3 and Zen 4 versions.
On the other hand, we see the supposed programming by Intel, which we also consider risky when we say that Comet Lake-S and Rocket Lake and Tiger Lake-U will be released on laptops this year.
In the end, we’ll have to wait and see what happens next. Of course, these revelations from PCGH are very ambitious, let’s hope they are true, if they are correct, then we are facing a very ” dramatic ” phase in the field of processors.
