AMD’s roadmap for Ryzen CPUs and APUs has been leaked for the next two years. In it you can see that AMD has even Zen 4 in view. It is a partial roadmap, yes, but it allows us to get an idea about what we will see from AMD in the months that come between now and 2022.
This roadmap has been leaked by MebiuW in two parts and has been recomposed by Videocardz to make it easier to examine the timeline of upcoming AMD creations. There are some processors that were already known and others that we did not know anything about until now.As for Zen 2, almost everything is already presented. There are four product lines, plus a fifth that is about to be launched. The list of Zen 2 CPUs and APUs is this:
- AMD EPYC Rome (2nd Gen EPYC)
- AMD Ryzen 3000 ‘Matisse’
- AMD Ryzen 3000XT ‘Mattise Refresh’
- AMD Ryzen 4000 ‘Renoir’
- AMD Ryzen 5000 ‘Van Gogh’
The product that will be presented shortly is the Van Gogh APUs, Ultra-Low Power, based on Zen 2 despite being from the 5000 series. It is the product that competes with the Tiger Lake-Y.
Then Zen 3 will arrive, with Vermeer, Cezanne, Rembrandt, and Dragon Crest on the consumer side and Milan on the professional side. In fact, the EPYC Milan will be the first Zen 3 to arrive. The Zen 3 product list is this:
- AMD EPYC Milan (3rd Gen EPYC)
- AMD Ryzen 4000 ‘Vermeer’
- AMD Ryzen 5000 ‘Warhol’
- AMD Ryzen 5000 ‘Cezanne’
- AMD Ryzen 6000 ‘Rembrandt
This is where AMD is starting to “mess” things up with the nomenclature. The series for laptops are “ahead” in front of the desktop, although with Zen 3 AMD seems to be releasing a soda under the name Warhol, which will advance a series to desktop processors. The Warhol possibly come with a change of socket, to go to AM5.
The Ryzen 5000 Cezanne APUs will carry Zen 3 cores and Vega graphics with 7nm technology with compatibility with the AM4 boards of the 500 series. The Ryzen 6000 Rembrandt APUs will have an AM5 socket. The cores will be Zen 3 with Navi 2 graphics (RDNA 2) and will arrive in early 2022.
Zen 4, for its part, will arrive in 2022 in the form of EPYC Genoa CPUs, which will be the fourth generation of EPYC. And here we come to the Zen 4 “Raphael” that will come in 2022. They will be AM5 processors and the APUs will carry RDNA 3 iGPUs.
