AMD: no 5nm before the end of 2022, Zen3+ 6nm end of the year?

A new leak gives credence to the many speculations about a “pause” in the AMD roadmap.

AMD Roadmap 2022

A little break at AMD?

This latest leaked roadmap indicates that the potential Ryzen 6000 (Warhol), which will be released at the end of 2021, will only be a refresh of the Ryzen 5000 series. So we should not expect a revolution but simple optimizations of the Zen3 architecture. For this new series, a manufacturing process in 6nmwould be used (we know that as for the Samsung names, this term is only a commercial name synonymous with an optimized 7nm).

The next Threadripper in August?

However, AMD will still have things to offer this year with the arrival of the new Threadripper series, which will also move to Zen3. The new generation Threadripper series named “Chagall” should be compatible with the current TRX40 motherboards. According to Videocardz, AMD has had some problems with the development of the Zen3-based Threadripper. The samples tested a few weeks ago did not offer the same performance improvement as the AM4 series of desktop processors. A situation that explains the delay and the current confusion among motherboard manufacturers.

Coming back to the AM4 socket, the possible new Ryzen 6000 series could arrive only at the very end of the year.

The 5nm not with the end of 2022?

For the year 2022, the AMD Ryzen 7000 (Raphael) desktop processors are scheduled to arrive with the new AMD Zen4 architecture. So if we take the leak we are talking about at face value, AMD will have added a step to its initial roadmap. This new generation should obviously take advantage of the new architecture as well as the 5nm still at TSMC. The PCI-Express 5.0 and DDR5 will make their appearance and this should be done on a new socket… New features that we expected on this family Ryzen 6000 initially.
