Zen 4-based AMD Ryzen 6000 series processors are expected to come up with a serious performance increase.
AMD has had significant success with its Zen architecture, and this architecture helped the brand steal market share from Intel and, most importantly, attract tech enthusiasts. While Zen 2 was an important step forward for the Ryzen 3000 series on the desktop, Zen 3 did even better. Now, there is talk about what the Zen 4 architecture will bring. According to allegations, Zen 4 will provide a pretty big performance boost. In fact, let’s underline that there is talk of a 25 percent performance improvement for Ryzen 6000 processors.
Performance increase is, of course, a common occurrence in the transition from one generation to the next with Zen. Already, Zen 3 can handle any workload such as gaming, productivity, content creation, and general purpose computing. On the other hand, it is stated that the performance leap from Zen 3 to Zen 4 will be more than the leap from Zen 2 to Zen 3.
According to ChipsandCheese, Zen 4 could potentially deliver a 25 percent gain in IPC (instructions per hour). However, if the clock speeds increase, the total performance increase can reach 40 percent compared to Zen 3.
AMD seems to be focusing on around 19 percent overall in IPC increases lately. Of course, this is quite enough. This is said to be because Zen 4 represents the transition to a 5-nanometer manufacturing process. Zen 3 is the second generation AMD processors using 7 nm node, while the transition to 5nm will provide a greater performance gain.
Additionally, it is claimed that AMD could reach an all-core clock speed of 5 GHz as a result of going to the 5 nm node. A Zen 4-based EPYC Genoa engineering sample has also provided a 29 percent performance improvement compared to a Zen 3-based Milan processor with the same core configuration and clock speed.
