AMD Confirms AM5 Help For Ryzen 8000 Processors, Zen 5 with Navi 3.5

Throughout one in all their webinars to channel companions on maximizing server deployments with AMD Ryzen processors, AMD unveiled a number of the upcoming plans surrounding their next-generation Zen 5 microarchitecture. Though we all know the broader AMD desktop roadmap up until 2025 and their plans to launch Zen 5, codenamed ‘Granite Ridge’ sometime in 2024, AMD has produced a barely up to date roadmap. Inside this roadmap is particulars asserting that their AM5 platform will formally assist upcoming Zen 5 processors.

On high of this, AMD has unveiled that the Zen 5 desktop processors will fall beneath the Ryzen 8000 collection household, however with a twist, as Zen 5 will even include a brand new iGPU codenamed ‘Navi 3.5.’ The final of the potential bulletins is that we might see Ryzen 7000 collection processors with RDNA 3 (Navi 3x) based mostly built-in graphics later this 12 months.

Regardless of there being little technical data from AMD on their upcoming Zen 5 (Granite Ridge) based mostly processors, that are scheduled for someday in 2024, AMD has let the cat out of the bag. This consists of a few important (albeit stealthily hidden) confirmations about its next-generation platform. The primary of those confirmations is that AMD’s Zen 5 for desktop merchandise will come beneath the Ryzen 8000 collection, the direct successor to AMD’s present Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 collection for desktops.

AMD’s Ryzen 8000 desktop household of processors, as we now comprehend it to be, will incorporate three major lineups. This consists of the common desktop CPUs and at the least one however possibly extra Zen 5-based processors with 3D V-Cache packaging. The third is a decrease powered, decrease spec, and extra compact core often called the Zen 5c collection, which we all know from the case of Zen 4c, is utilized in AMD’s EYPC 128-core Bergamo processor.

On high of the Ryzen 8000 naming affirmation, AMD has additionally unveiled that their present AM5 platform for motherboards will even assist the upcoming Zen 5-based processors and that the AM5 socket will scale into 2026; AMD’s motherboards sockets for generations have had intervals of longevity and stability with new processor launches, and AM5 seems to be to be no totally different on this regard. This means customers with Ryzen 7000 and AM5-based motherboards resembling X670E and B650E might theoretically drop the upcoming Ryzen 8000 chips straight into the socket and allow use via a firmware replace. AMD, nevertheless, hasn’t confirmed this as of but.

The opposite attention-grabbing disclosure is that AMD’s Ryzen 8000 collection will not include RNDA 3-based built-in graphics however with a brand new codename that insinuates an replace to their current Navi 3 merchandise can be within the pipeline. That is named Navi 3.5, and though there are not any official particulars on what AMD GPU structure they are going to be based mostly on, or the specs, we should always discover out extra on this nearer to Zen 5’s launch, which, once more, is scheduled for 2024. 

Probably the most important function of AMD’s barely up to date roadmap is that it reveals AMD Ryzen 7000 collection (Zen 4) processors with Navi 3.0 graphics. Provided that AMD’s at the moment launched Ryzen 7000 collection processors, such because the Ryzen 9 7950X, have an RDNA 2-based built-in graphics chip (Navi 2x), this may very well be essentially the most evident disclosure but from AMD that Ryzen 7000-based ‘APUs,’ a time period which AMD has seemingly moved on from, may very well be launched later this 12 months. There’s additionally an opportunity this may very well be a blooper in AMD’s roadmap.

Nonetheless, it stays to be seen whether or not or not we get a Zen 4-based SoC with better-integrated graphics that we have been accustomed to from earlier generations of Ryzen processors.
