News about AMD’s future Zen 5 architecture Ryzen 8000 series processors appeared on the Internet. From the perspective of all parties’ news, from Zen 3 to Zen 4 to Zen 5 architecture, the changes are still not small.
According to the MOEPC report, the Zen 4 architecture processor will be released in 2022. It will be manufactured using a 5nm process and support DDR5 and PCIe Gen5. There are rumors that the RDNA 2 architecture core display will be integrated. The Zen 5 architecture processor code-named Strix Point APU, which belongs to the Ryzen 8000 series, will be manufactured using TSMC’s 3nm process and is expected to be released in 2024. The most surprising thing about the Zen 5 architecture is probably the architecture design. It will be the same as Intel Alder Lake, using the big.LITTLE architecture, with 8 large cores and 4 small cores. In addition, the memory system will have relatively large changes which are closer to the current mobile SoC design.
AMD Zen 5 (Strix) will feature big.LITTLE.
The big cores are, of course, Zen 5 cores.
Well the littles will be interesting…
And the new caches… by looking at the memory subsystem it will be somewhat closer to current mobile SoCs .

Due to the cancellation of Warhol, the XT/Refresh version of the Zen 3 architecture will replace the original Ryzen 6000 series. It is rumored that the Zen 4 architecture started, and AMD is likely to integrate the RDNA 2 architecture core display on the Ryzen 7000 series code-named Raphael. It is not clear how AMD will arrange the CPU and APU on the desktop platform in the future. Since there is still a long time before the official release, we do not rule out further adjustments to the specifications.
