AMD is due to launch the Ryzen 4000 desktop processors based on the Zen 3 architecture this fall. This will be the company’s latest generation of desktop CPUs using 7nm process technology and the AM4 socket.
Next year we are waiting for the Ryzen and Epyc CPUs based on the Zen 4 architecture. And these processors will be produced already according to the 5 nm process technology. Moreover, according to the source, TSMC has prepared for AMD processors some advanced five-nanometer process technology – the best at TSMC.
Five-nanometer semiconductor products will be in high demand next year, as this process will not only produce AMD processors, but also various single-chip systems, including Apple A.
In particular, Apple has reserved 10,000 300 mm wafers per month from TSMC for the fourth quarter of this year, and AMD – 20,000 wafers each.
As for the processors themselves, desktop Ryzen will switch to using DDR5 memory. Including this feature will require a transition to a new socket. Server CPUs Epyc Genoa in addition to the same memory will also support PCIe 5.0.
