The following year, one of the main designers of Zen 2,AMDEnterprise academician David Suggs mentioned in his personal file that he has joined the Zen 5 team and is responsible for R&D and design. In October of that year, AMD CTO Mark Papermaster confirmed that Zen 4 and Zen 5 are being independently developed by different teams.
Since it is not in the same line, then we have reason to look forward to the new look of Zen 5.
The whistleblower MLID shared the latest information, saying that Zen 5 will be the biggest change in the architecture system since Zen 2, and it is expected to be launched 11 to 15 months after Zen 4, that is, as soon as the second half of next year.
In terms of CPU design, Zen 5 will completely reconstruct the interconnect and cache parts. Although the frequency is basically the same as that of Zen 4, the increase in IPC is even greater. The IPC increase of Zen 4 to Zen 3 will not be lower than 19%, and the latest news says that it can be as high as 24%.
However, the legendary four-thread is no play, it is still two-thread.
For the processor products corresponding to Zen 5, three code names have surfaced, namely EPYC Turin 7xxx, Ryzen 8000 “Granite Ridge” and Ryzen 8000 “Strix Point”,The process upgrades TSMC to 3nm or 4nm, and the core number of the Ryzen 8000 will exceed 16.
By the way, there is also Zen 6, MLID also admits that little is known at present, and he predicts that it will be seen around 2025.
