Ryzen : We are already talking about Zen 5

Ryzen : We are already talking about Zen 5

While speculations on the abandonment of Ryzen 6000 to go directly to Zen 4 are getting stronger, other information indicates that AMD could follow Intel’s footsteps by introducing a big.LITTLE architecture on its future Zen 5 desktop processors.

AMD also on the big.LITTLE concept?

You know it if you read us, the next Intel Alder Lake CPUs, which should make their debut at the end of the summer, will bring a major change in the design of X86 CPUs in general. Indeed, we will see something very similar to what we find on some ARM SoCs, i.e. the combination of larger high performance cores and smaller high efficiency cores.

It may well be that the Zen 5 series processors (Ryzen 8000) will also have a hybrid design. The processors, named Strix Point, would include at least one SKU with eight large Zen 5 cores manufactured on TSMC’s 3nm process and four unspecified smaller cores.

Zen 5 is expected to use TSMC’s 3nm process for release in 2024. The semiconductor giant said 3nm offers 25% to 30% less power consumption, 10% to 15% more performance and a 1.7x increase in transistor density compared to 5nm.


Towards a cancellation of Zen3+ and a delay of Zen 4?

MoePC also seems to have information that AMD’s Zen 3+ upgrade, has been cancelled due to the current chip shortage, so the rumor is gaining momentum. The 5nm-based Zen 4 could be launched at the end of 2022, leaving the Ryzen 5000 to hold the market for a long time…which still seems surprising.

AMD roadmap 2022

Warning: this projection is based on various speculations and leaks

However, business is looking good for AMD who announced earlier this week a record quarter with a 93% increase in revenue…
