Nothing new at AMD before the end of 2022?

Nothing new at AMD before the end of 2022?

If we cross the Computex announcements with the latest leaks, the uncertainties on AMD’s roadmap remain; a gap seems likely until the end of 2022. AMD Computex 2021 Concerning the CPUs, it seems to have been a long time since we have heard about a delay of the Zen 4 for a while. In reality AMD can’t do much because Apple monopolizes almost all the 5nm wafers produced by TSMC. The capacity should become available in 2022 if the Apple company switches to 3nm etching. If this massive switchover by Apple happens soon enough, it will free up significant production capacity at TSMC for Zen 4.

An air gap in the AMD roadmap until the end of 2022?

Concerning GPUs, the situation is even more complex: the supply has not been able to satisfy the demand for months. We can even wonder if AMD as well as Nvidia are not satisfied with this situation and take a little break. There is no reason to release new GPUs when production capacities are not able to meet the demand. This is why many customers who are used to upgrading their systems have not renewed their GPUs because of the price inflation caused by the shortage. caption id=”attachment_143184″


RDNA 3 and Zen 4 not before the end of 2022 at AMD?

If this situation remains fixed, it is very likely that Intel will regain control of the CPU market with technically interesting new products. On GPUs, AMD and Nvidia will “manage” the shortage with possibly some “updates” of their existing generations. This is a logical strategy that only Intel could upset if its generation of GPUs disrupted the current landscape. If this is not the case, the last echoes seem to confirm an arrival of Zen 4 and RDNA 3 for the end of 2022… Not before.
