CPUs primarily based on AMD’s new Zen Four structure will not arrive till this fall, however the firm is already dropping hints about what comes subsequent. As reported by AnandTech, AMD is planning a brand new Zen 5 structure, which is scheduled to come back to desktop and laptop computer PCs in 2024. The corporate can also be planning to convey the Zen Four structure to laptops in 2023, whereas the desktop CPUs stay on monitor to launch in 2022.
AMD additionally offered extra details about Zen 4’s efficiency. The corporate stated at Computex that the Ryzen 7000-series chips would sport roughly 15 p.c quicker single-threaded efficiency than Ryzen 5000. The corporate stated Friday that Zen Four was between eight and 10 p.c quicker than Zen Three on the identical clock speeds, accounting for a lot of the pace enchancment, whereas the remaining 5 to 7 p.c will come from larger clock speeds for Ryzen 7000 CPUs. Zen Four also can ship roughly 25 p.c larger performance-per-watt than Zen 3.
The corporate will convey again its 3D V-Cache expertise for some Zen Four CPUs as nicely. This enables AMD to stack extra L3 cache on prime of the CPU die, offering a giant increase to the quantity of cache with out rising the footprint of the CPU die or the CPU package deal. As we noticed in our overview of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, the expertise helps with recreation efficiency particularly, although the chip additionally ran a bit hotter than Zen Three CPUs with out 3D V-Cache, and its considerably decrease clock speeds made it carry out a bit worse in non-gaming workloads.
