Fast science and technology June 6 news, at the end of last year, AMD launched the 5nm Zen4 architecture of the sharp dragon 7000 series, the first desktop platform, these six months expanded to mobile, servers and other fields, this year's focus is still on the popularity of new products, there are sharp dragon 7000 APU desktop version and sharp dragon 7000 thread tearing has not been sent.
2024 AMD is about to launch the Zen5 architecture, named the Ruilong 8000 series, which has been confirmed by AMD's latest roadmap.
Not only that, AMD also released more details, AM5 platform will continue to use until 2026, support for new CPU and GPU upgrades, power consumption of 65W to 170W.
More importantly, AMD also confirmed that the CPU and GPU kernel of Ruilong 8000 will be greatly upgraded, of which CPU is the Zen5 architecture, which is not unexpected.The GPU architecture will be upgraded from Navi 3.0 of the Ruilong 7000 series to Navi 3.5.
However, there are some contradictions in AMD. Here we are talking about the desktop version of AM5 platform, but the kernel display of Ruilong 7000 desktop version is based on Navi 2.0 architecture, while the mobile version of Ruilong 7000 is the Navi 3.0 architecture.
Of course, the desktop version of the sharp dragon is highlighted on the bright card, the architecture upgrade is not significant, after all, the sharp dragon 7000 only gave 2 sets of CU units, sharp dragon 8000 hope to be a little more generous.
There is also a key factor not mentioned, next year on the Zen5 architecture Ruilong 8000, then the process upgrade 3nm is unlikely, because AMD mentioned before that Zen5 will first be on the 4nm process excessive, and then on the 3nm process, based on cost considerations, Ruilong 8000 desktop version is not necessary to be so aggressive on 3nm, the mobile version of Ruilong 8000 may follow the 3nm process in the first half of 2025.
