AMD processor plans: Zen 5 architecture in 2024 and more than a gigabyte of L3 cache in server chips

AMD revealed details about future products at Financial Analyst Day. The problem was, among other things the Zen 4 architecture’s core processors. The first Ryzen 7000 Desktop Drive and the oldest AM5 motherboards supporting DDR5 memory will be available for sale in the fall.

The Zen 4 processors have a higher work volume than the Zen 3 ones. This is a difference of 8-10%. DDR5 and clock frequencies will allow for a portion of single-threaded performance that AMD representatives repeatedly referred to. The Zen 3 processor will offer at least 25% more performance than current Zen 3 processors. The overall performance of the Zen 3 processor will also be higher by at least 25%.


AMD confirmed that its Ryzen7000 (Phoenix Point), APUs will be available in the early 2023 markets. They feature 3rd-generation RDNA graphics. They are made using 4nm technology. In 2024, they will be replaced by Strix Point chips that combine Zen 5 cores with RDNA 3+ graphics.


AMD’s 3D V-Cache technology was tested on the PEM-X server chip chips and the desktop Ryzen 7 5800X3D processors. It will also be used in Zen 4 and Zen 5 processors. The current Milan-X chips have 768 MB L3 cache.


The four-generation AMD EMPYC server CPU will also support four families simultaneously. Last year, the company spoke about Genoa- and Bergamo chips. Genoa-X models have larger L3 caches. The Younna processors have been designed with an emphasis on weight loss and increased energy efficiency.
