AMD has announced
a new CPU product roadmap at its Financial Analyst Day event. The Zen 4
architecture will include three cores: Zen 4, Zen 4 V-Cache, and Zen 4c, available in 5nm and 4nm versions, respectively. By 2024, AMD plans to launch a new Zen 5 architecture, which also has three versions of Zen 5, Zen 5 V-Cache, and Zen 5c, and will have 4nm and 3nm versions.
AMD confirmed that on the desktop platform, the CPU codenamed for the Zen 5 architecture is Granite Ridge, which belongs to the Ryzen 8000 series. Although AMD did not specify what process node it will use, it is likely to be manufactured on TSMC’s 3nm process.
Also belonging to the AMD Ryzen 8000 series is the APU code-named Strix Point. It is rumored that it adopts a hybrid architecture, with Zen 5 architecture large core and Zen 4c architecture small core. However, it has not been confirmed by AMD for the time being, and the GPU part uses the RDNA 3+ architecture and is also manufactured using the 3nm process.
From 2021 to 2024, AMD has updated the architecture of each generation of products on the APU. The Ryzen 7000 series, code-named Phoenix Point, will use the Zen 4 architecture + RDNA 3 architecture, combined with AIE (Artificial Intelligence Engine), likely to use IP from Xilinx.
In addition, AMD has confirmed that on the HEDT platform, the Threadripper 7000 series based on the Zen 4 architecture will be launched. However, there are no plans for the Threadripper 8000 series yet, and there is no confirmation when the Zen 5 architecture and V-Cache technology will enter.
