While fans are waiting for the 5nm Zen 4 Ryzen™ 7000 processor, in fact, the development of the next-generation architecture Zen5 has already begun.
Some impression friends may remember that in 2018, in a video uploaded by AMD's official Tubing, Mike Clark, the father of Zen architecture and chief designer, revealed for the first time that the team has begun Zen5 research and development, you know, at that time, Zen+ was not even officially debuted.
The following year, David Suggs, one of the main designers of Zen 2 and an AMD enterprise academician, mentioned in his profile that he had joined the Zen 5 team to develop and design. In October of that year, AMD CTO Mark Papermaster confirmed that Zen 4 and Zen 5 were being independently developed by different teams.
Since they do not interfere with each other, it seems reasonable that there will be a huge difference in the underlying architecture.
RedGamingTech gave the details of Zen 5's sneaking in the latest revelations,Including the first use of Intel 12th generation Core hybrid architecture, of which the Ryzen 9 Series is a pure large core, the corresponding Ryzen 8000 desktop CPU can reach up to 32 cores.
In terms of performance, Zen 4 to Zen 3's IPC increase is about 19%,And Zen 5 to Zen 4 actually increased to 30%, can be described as quite scary.
In addition, Zen 5 completely refactored the cache section, and the capacity of L1, L2, and L3 will increase significantly.
Although Zen 5 has not yet a clear time point, considering that Intel will iterate on the 13th generation of Core Raptor Lake in the second half of the year and follow up with the 14th generation of Core Meteor Lake next year, this is bound to accelerate the development process of AMD competitors, and it will be seen.
