AMD is rumored to release Zen 4 architecture Ryzen series desktop processors in 2022Q4

It has been reported before that AMD’s next-generation Ryzen 6000 series processor code-named Warhol based on the Zen 3+ architecture and 6nm process has been canceled and replaced by the XT/Refresh version of the Zen 3 architecture. This is likely to be the last update of the Ryzen series on the AM4 platform, and the X570S chipset will also be launched, which will be announced later this year. The reason is that the current supply situation of the entire market and TSMC’s production capacity have prompted AMD to abandon Warhol and focus on next-generation products code-named Raphael. The new processor will be manufactured using the Zen 4 architecture and 5nm process.

AMD is likely to integrate an integrated RDNA 2 architecture core on the Ryzen 7000 series code-named Raphael. At the same time, it adopts the new AM5 platform, which will support PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 memory, and its I/O chip will also be upgraded to a 6nm process.

According to Twitter user @sepeuwmjh, AMD will announce news about the new generation of platforms in the third quarter of 2022, and then in the fourth quarter, the Ryzen series processors based on the Zen 4 architecture will be officially released. The opponent will be Intel’s No. 13th generation Core series, desktop processor code-named Raptor Lake-S
