AMD has shared its plans for the 2022-2023 release of a roadmap, non-structural to the general public, posted online. As per the current plan, AMD intends to continue releasing Ryzen 5000, 4000G, and 4000G processors for Socket AM4, and the mighty Ryzen Thredripper 5000 won’t be getting successors any time soon.
AMD plans to introduce a new generation of high-performance desktop processors that will only replace the current Ryzen Threadripper 5000 by the end of 2023. Their name, as well as other details about their features are not specified. The new item was previously rumored to be called Storm Peak and will likely go on sale as the Ryzen Thredripper 7000. You can imagine these processors will be getting the Zen 4 core, DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 support, as well than other features of the Ryzen 7000.
AMD continues to sell the Ryzen 5000 and 5000X3D processors along with the new Ryzen 7000 until at least 2023. AMD’s slide also confirms that the company plans to release the Ryzen 7000X3D processor, which will feature 3D V-Cache. They had an announcement, but they didn’t know they were in their office.
The only desktop processor with extended 3D V-Cache is the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. And it’s one of the company’s fastest solutions for gaming, even surpassing the recently released Ryzen 7000. So perhaps the release of the Ryzen 7000X3D processors will allow AMD to strengthen its position in the direction of games.
Finally, AMD plans to update the Windows R86 model for the end of 2023, which has a remarkably powerful integrated graphics card. They will likely come in Ryzen 7000G and offer a combination of Zen 4 and RDNA 2 or RDNA 3 graphics. Then AMD continues to use its latest model, the Ryzen 4000G and 5000G desktops, even after new products are released.
The Socket AM4 platform will not lose its relevance at least until 2023.
