AMD Zen 4 and RDNA 3 “on track” for release in 2022


AMD says that it is on schedule to release its 5nm Zen 4 Ryzen CPUs and RDNA 3 ‘Radeon RX’ GPUs in 2022.

AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su has announced that the launch of Ryzen Zen 4 ‘Ryzen’ CPUs and Radeon RX RDNA 3 GPUs of the next generation will begin in 2022 during their call with investors in the second quarter of 2021.

AMD’s Foundation of the next generation of CPUs and GPUs will be Zen 4 and RDNA 3 core designs. AMD will use the two IPs in 2022, which means it is still another great year of AMD launches in high-performance format. AMD will have two new desktop families based on Zen 3 and the Zen 4, named Raphael for 2022, not one but two new Ryzen families.

Dr. Lisa Su, CEO of AMD, indicated that AMD would be launching products of the next generation in 2022, including the Zen 4 processors based on the best 5nm technology in the industry and the RDNA 3 GPUs.

AMD is not happy to divulge details about its schedules and post-Zen4 architectures, as did Intel, which had outlined its plans a few years beforehand. AMD also failed to confirm which products will receive its 3D V-Cache treatment, except for Ryzen.

The new AMD GPU’s

Regarding the AMD’s GPU family, we can expect the Radeon RX series (7000) of the next generation to give excellent performance and be the first game chip in the industry with an MCM design.

That said, AMD stated that supply constraints will continue into 2021 and that things will ease with the start of 2022. Regardless, AMD believes it will expand significantly in the second half of 2021. AMD also highlighted that it has initially started shipments of its next-generation CDNA 2 architecture-based Instinct MI200 accelerator.

Ryzen Desktop CPUs of next-generation Zen 4 will be called Raphael, replacing the Vermeer desktop CPU Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000. According to current information, the Raphael CPUs will be constructed on the 5-nm core Zen 4 architecture and will utilize 6-nm I/O dies in chipset design. AMD has stated that the core count of its next-generation mainstream desktop CPUs would be increased so that we may anticipate a slight rise from the present limit of 16 cores and 32 threads.

On the other hand, recent rumors have indicated that the flagship Navi 31 GPU will house 60 WGPs, over 15,000 cores, and will feature a 3x performance increase over the Big Navi 21 GPU. The Navi 33 GPU also offers 80 compute units, 5120 cores, and more performance than the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.

NVIDIA’s Ada Lovelace GPU series will compete with the Radeon RX AMD RDNA 3 ‘Navi 3’ GPU line of Radeon RX graphics cards.
