AMD tease roadmap for Zen 4, Zen 5, RDNA 3 and more

By - | Views: 21,303

At the recent Financial Analyst Day, AMD revealed a little bit more about their upcoming roadmap and there's plenty to be excited about for their next-gen CPUs and GPUs.

Some of the points that were mentioned for desktop and laptop users, those were interested in here include:

  • Zen 4 CPUs later this year as the "world's first" 5nm x86 CPUs. AMD say it will give an IPC uplift of 8-10% and more than a 25% increase in performance-per-watt and a 35% overall performance increase compared to Zen 3 when running desktop applications. We can also expect Zen 4 with V-Cache, and a Zen 4c revision and some will be on a 4nm process.
  • Zen 5 "Granite Ridge" CPUs planned for 2024, which is being built from the ground-up. Zen 5 will have both 4nm and 3nm designs.
  • AMD RDNA 3 "Navi 3x" will bring a chiplet design, which will also have their Infinity Cache tech with a 5nm process which they claim a 50% boost in performance-per-watt compared with the previous generation. AMD said to expect Navi 3x GPUs later this year.
  • A new "Phoenix Point" mobile processor coming in 2023, which will have Zen 4 along with RDNA graphics followed up by the "Strix Point" processor in 2024.

Even the Steam Deck got a passing mention, with AMD patting themselves on the back for their position amongst the main consoles since they power the Steam Deck, Xbox and PlayStation.

I wonder if they'll have 16 core / 32 thread CPUs with V-cache and that will compare to non V-cache ones from the game generation.

3 nm?! Is that even a real thing? I thought when you got that small, electrons started bleeding all over the place, and other such basic physical constraints.
Also, what are they using to etch that, gamma rays?

I think those sizes aren't referring to literal transistors anymore, so it can be misleading.

Ah, I see.
Quoting: WikipediaThe nanometers used to name process nodes has become more of a marketing term that has no relation with actual feature sizes nor transistor density
So in answer to my original question, no, it's not a real thing.
