According to “sources from motherboard manufacturers”; AMD Ryzen 4000 processors will launch in September - just in time for a rescheduled Computex trade show. Based on AMD’s previous promise of a Zen 3 release date “later this year”, the latest update to the DigiTimes (via Tom's Hardware) suggests that the next generation of AMD Ryzen desktop processors will arrive in September.
According to the report, AMD planned to launch the Ryzen 4000 series desktop CPUs at Computex, one of the world's largest technology fairs in Taipei. And, in a way, that plan remains unchanged. The red team can still choose the Taiwanese technology program as their launching pad, but the program itself is scheduled to occur later in the year than originally planned. To guarantee the health and safety of the participants and exhibitors, TAITRA (event organizer) rescheduled Computex from 2 to 6 June to 28 to 30 September.
AMD Ryzen 4000 projects and the world of technology at the moment
Most of the scripts are on the air right now, as you can imagine; But both AMD on Ryzen 4000 and Intel have been working hard to make it easier for investors that their manufacturing has not been significantly affected. Regardless, the entire technology ecosystem around the new processors may be a little unstable at the moment, so the prospects for launching new chips are somewhat bleak.
Still, positivity and all that. In September, we may be looking at the barrel of a new generation of AMD processors built on the Zen 3 architecture. And this is also not a small generational leap. At least not according to AMD's chief server, Forrest Norrod, who called it "a totally new architecture". It feels more like the leap from Zen + to Zen 2 than Zen to Zen +, if you ask me - and that's a good thing.
Now AMD has removed all '7nm +' references from its Zen 3 roadmaps, so we suspect it is opting for the TSMC's enhanced 7nm node for the new processors; Instead of the most advanced N7 + project (the real 7nm +) that its silicon makers have been working on.
On the other hand, we will have Intel's 10th generation Gen Comet Lake processors long before, which will compete with the Ryzen 4000 according to rumors to be announced on April 30; With availability to follow in May. With up to 10 cores and 20 threads, these chips are expected to dominate the scene in terms of pure gaming performance and on a hefty budget. The question on everyone's lips, however, is exactly how much power will they need to swallow to get there? Quite by all accounts.
