AMD is already preparing the Ryzen 7000 X3D processor

Although AMD has just launched the Ryzen 7000 desktop processor not long ago, the follow-up products must have been arranged properly. In addition to the Ryzen 7000 series desktop and mobile processors, the Zen 4 architecture also includes Zen 4 with 3D V-Cache and Zen4C for high-density computing. In fact, AMD has provided its channel partners with an update to the product roadmap.

Twitter user @benson60843125 posted a product roadmap that should be the Ryzen desktop processor from 2022 to 2023. It can be seen that AMD will continue to provide Ryzen 5000 and Ryzen 7000 series processors this year and next year, and there is X3D next to the Ryzen 7000 processor. It means that AMD is definitely making a Zen 4 desktop processor with 3D V-Cache, but it is not clear when it will be shipped. After all, there is a TBA next to X3D.

The workstation-oriented Ryzen Threadripper 5000 series life cycle will continue until some point next year, and then it will be replaced by a new generation of Ryzen Threadripper, which should be the Ryzen Threadripper 7000 with Zen 4 architecture. After all, the current Ryzen Threadripper is basically a single-socket EPYC, and the new generation of EPYC Genoa is probably not much ready. The new generation of Ryzen Threadripper 7000 is just a variant of the EPYC 9004 series.

In terms of APUs, the Ryzen 4000G and Ryzen 5000G series will also serve until 2023, and a new generation of Ryzen 7000G series APUs will be launched at some point next year. But this will not affect the continued sales of the Ryzen 4000G/5000G. After all, the new APU will use the AM5 platform and use DDR5 memory. There is a cost advantage in storing the AM4 platform using DDR4 memory in a short time, and it still has a great market value.
