With the exception of the desktop version of the seven nm Zen2 APU,AMD, whose layout is almost complete over the course of a year,, this year's focus will shift to a new generation of processors, the seven nm process Zen3, and this time it will be a full-scale attack on the 4000 desktop, Threadripper 4000 and EPYC.
Amd has promised to launch new CPU products every year. It has done so since 2017. The sharp dragon 3000 series launched 7Nm zen2 last year, This year's Ruilong 4000 desktop version will be upgraded to TSMC 2nd generation 7 nm process 7 nm and Zen3 architecture。
According to the previous disclosure, although the number of cores of zen3 architecture will not continue to increase, the internal changes are not small, The single CCX will have eight cores to take full advantage of the 32 MB cache, while the current sharp dragon processor has a single CCX of four cores and two CCX to form a CCD..
Plus other improvements,Zen3 architecture is expected to improve IPC performance by 10-15% Taking into account the 7 nm process's power consumption and frequency enhancement, the Zen3 generation is expected to lead in performance.
This year's product portfolio will also be AMD in addition to architecture and process upgrades, with the introduction of the main market-oriented ruilong 4000 desktop version, the HEDT burner-oriented ruilong Threadripper 4000 and the data center market, code-named EPYC (should be EPYC 7003 series) processors, three product lines at the same time upgrade.
For players, the most important thing this year is of course the desktop version of the sharp dragon 4000, and it will also be matched with the new generation of 600 series chipsets. There are new motherboards such as x670, b650, A620, etc. to fully support PCIe 4.0 needless to say, it will also support the latest USB4 specification.
The Ruilong 4000 series will be AMD last AM4 platform, The next Zen4 will not only upgrade the 5 nm process, but will also replace new slots, which are expected to support PCIe 5.0 and DDR5But it will be around 2022.
