Next-Gen AMD Ryzen 4000 (Zen 3) Launch, Specs, Details (What’s New)
AMD recently launched the Zen 2 series and now as per the latest reports the company is working on the next-generation Ryzen 4000 (Zen 3) architecture.
Also, for the unware, AMD has launched its Epyc Rome processors for the servers.
These monstrous processors come with upto 64 Cores and have 256 MB cache along with an impressive 225 Watts TDP.
One of the slides from the yesterdays AMD’s presentation give us insights to what is coming from the RED team in the future.
AMD is working on the next-generation Ryzen 4000 (Zen 3) series of processors and these will also be based on 7 Nm manufacturing process.
The AMD slides confirm that the design for the Zen 3 is complete and it is ready for further testing.
Also, we got the information that AMD has already started working on the design for the Zen 4, which will bring the Ryzen 5000 series.
We can expect the Ryzen 4000 CPU(Vermeer) to launch in 2020 and probably a year later the Ryzen 5000 series will launch.
Interestingly, AMD has not mentioned the manufacturing process for the Zen 3 architecture. Can they jump to 5 Nm manufacturing process? We are not so sure.
Intel, on the other hand, was still stuck on the 14 Nm manufacturing process, introduced in 2015 with the Skylake processor.
Recently, they jumped to the 10 Nm manufacturing process for the Ice Lake processors and it is going to take time for Intel to reach the 7 Nm process.
Also, it is estimated that the AMD Naples (Server CPU’s) and Renoir (APU) will launch towards the beginning of 2021.
There are some rumors that suggest that the upcoming Ryzen 4000 may have support for the DDR5 Ram. It is not unlikely but we apprehensive about this.
Furthermore, there are some unconfirmed reports that the next-gen Ryzen chips can have improved SMT (Simultaneous Multi-Threading) and hyperthreading.
Vermeer may support 4 simultaneous threads instead of the 2 threads per core currently.
This will help reduce the number of cores and will also boost the multi-core performance significantly.
AMD Zen 3 (Ryzen 4000) Specs and Details
Aforementioned, the Ryzen 4000 series of CPU’s are called as Vermeer.
The processors will be using the 7Nm+ manufacturing process and these will be more energy-efficient than the Ryzen 3000.
AMD will optimize the current architecture further to deliver higher performance per watt in the Ryzen 4000 series.
Further, the company has already pushed the Core count on most of the chips high enough to make Intel nervous.
I am not expecting an increase in Core count in the Ryzen 4000 but improvement in IPC and probably a bit of bump on the clock speed.
AMD RX 5800 Based on Navi 12 is Coming Soon
Also, the company working on the Navi 12 based Radeon RX 5800 graphics card which will compete with the fastest Nvidia Graphics card in the market.
AMD Stops the Production of Reference RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT
Pardon me for being blunt, AMD stock cooling solution on these reference cards was downright pathetic.
They ran hot and when under load would sound higher than a tiny drone.
Nevertheless, there is information from this Reddit thread that tells us bad days are over and AMD is discontinuing the reference RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT cards.
Also, the single fan blower type cooler cards from brands such as MSI, Gigabyte, and Asus will also be discontinued.
Instead, we will be able to buy the Dual or Twin Cooler cards from all the vendors.
