As soon as October, AMD will launch a new generation of sharp dragon processor based on zen3 architecture. The name of this generation is not easy to say, but due to the confusion of the sharp dragon 3000 and the sharp dragon 4000, it is likely to be renamed the Reebok 5000 series.
Since the release of the Zen architecture in 2017, AMD has firmly maintained its commitment to release a new generation of architecture each year, with multiple products for servers, desktop and mobile products.
But because of the differences in the three markets,Different products are launched, which also leads to the problem that the architecture and product sequence are not aligned.
What does that mean? Mainly because the desktop version of Ruilong more than 12 nm of the version Zen process, it has become the second generation of Ruilong in the product sequence, that is, Ruilong 2000 series,As a result, last year's 7 nm zen2 sharp dragon became the Reebok 3000 series.
According to this order, the zen3 architecture to be released by the end of this year will become the third generation of the sharp dragon. However, the name of the sharp dragon 4000 is used by the mobile sharp dragon APU, and the naming will be disordered.
In the PPT above is the introduction in the investor report in July. Amd has made it clear that zen3 is the fourth generation of Reebok.
However, in the September investment report updated in these two days, amd changed its mind again, and there was no sign of the 4th Gen fourth generation sharp dragon in zen3.
Although the elimination of this four generation Reebok will not easily lead to chaos, but this time the change means thatZen3 will not necessarily use the name of the Reebok 4000. It is more likely to be renamed the Reebok 5000.
EPYC server version of the architecture is normal, because there are no 12 nm Zen generation, so naming and architecture has been comparable, Zen3 is the third generation, the next 5 nm Genoa is the fourth generation of Zen4 architecture, simple and clear.
