We know for sure that AMD will present the first desktop processors with Zen 3 architecture on October 8th, an announcement that in recent days has surprised everyone a bit but that has been very well received by the insiders, not only for the news that will be introduced, but also because the company has kept its roadmap unchanged despite the excellent sales of the current Ryzen 3000.
As for the Radeon RX 6000 – expected instead for October 28 – the company has not so far been unbalanced on the new generation of Ryzen processors, however we already have some details: we know that they will be built with a 7nm + production process, they will have a different Core Complex Die (CCD) design and an improved cache subsystem. All these improvements, combined with clock rates more thrust of the current Zen 2, should lead to an increase in the IPC of these processors, quantifiable in at least 15%.
What is still not certain, besides the absolute performance of the CPUs, is the nomenclature that AMD will use for the new Ryzen. Many expect the company to maintain the current Ryzen 4000 version, while according to the most recent rumors it seems that the Sunnyvale manufacturer may opt for a more adequate Ryzen 5000.
In our opinion, this choice seems more correct, if only because it will be the first chips to be built with the new optimized 7nm production process, certainly more efficient than the current one. According to a tweet from Patrick Schur, an engineer who has already proven himself reliable in the past on AMD CPUs, the company would already have the 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X and 8-core Ryzen 7 5800X ready.
We know that Zen 3-based desktop processors should offer up to 16 cores with SMT support, following the current AMD proposal in the consumer segment; having said that, it is likely that the company already has the 16 core Ryzen 9 5950X flagship model in the works to replace the excellent Ryzen 9 3950X.
