AMD, which will introduce 4000 series processors at the end of the year, is also being prepared for 5000 series processors. The processors, which will go through the 5 nm production process with the Zen 4 architecture, are expected to be released in 2022. Along with 4000 series processors, AMD said it would introduce new processors every 18 months on average, instead of every year. According to the latest news, some features have leaked for the AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors.
Of course, after the 4000 series processors, it will be said goodbye to the AM4 socket. We can say that the expectations from the 5000 series processors that will come with the AM5 socket are great.
Farewell to the AM4 socket with AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors
For the 5th generation AMD Ryzen processors, which are expected to be released in 2022, the biggest change will be the AM5 socket. With the new socket, many current technologies will be supported. It is not known how long the AM5 socket will last. However, CEO Dr. If Lisa Su promises again four years, it can be a long-term investment for users.
DRR5 RAM support is one of the biggest innovations to come with AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors. On the Intel side, this support is planned to be provided by 11th generation desktop processors in 2021. Along with the AM5 socket, an improved PCIE 4.0 socket will also be supported. Currently, PCIE 4.0 support is provided by AMD along with X570 motherboards.
With DRR5 memory, clock speeds up to 8400 MHz will be available to users. In addition, the new memories will have 1.1V power consumption compared to 1.2V DDR4 memory. Another feature that will come with new processors and socket is the USB 4.0 standard. With USB 4.0, which will reach speeds of 40 Gbps, data transfers will be faster. This standard is expected to be available with Type-C inlet. So in the coming years, we can say goodbye to the USB-A port completely.
Also, APU processors expected to be released in 2022 are expected to have DDR5 RAM support. These processors will come with Zen 3+ architecture instead of Zen 4 architecture. Due to the Zen 4 architecture, AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors will pass through the 5 nm production line. AMD has reached an agreement with TSMC for these processors.
