After AMD has completed the task of fully countering Intel through the Zen 3 CPU architecture, the company’s AM4 interface is about to complete its historical mission. At the same time, everyone is full of curiosity about the new generation of processor specifications. Interestingly, Twitter user @sepeuwmjh just shared a leaked AMD Ryzen 7000 series Raphael CPU roadmap.
WccfTech pointed out that the roadmap revealed a missing code name, which was previously suspected to be a desktop processor product line with Zen 4 CPU + Navi 2 GPU. On the basis of MebiuW’s initial revelations, @Olrak29_ helped draw a complete chart.
If the news is reliable, it is scheduled to launch a new generation product line in 2022 or introduce an advanced TSMC 5nm process, Zen 4 architecture, Navi 2 core display, and support for PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 memory. It is reported that the current AMD desktop processor codename is Warhol (replacing the previous Vermeer series), and Raphel is expected to become Warhol’s successor.
In terms of the processor manufacturing process, Raphel will upgrade its sights from TSMC N6 (actually just a revised version of N7) from 5nm. At the same time, in terms of motherboard slots, AMD will also use AM5 to replace AM4, which has been in use for many years.
On this basis, the AM5 platform will also usher in PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 memory. As for the APU product line, it is expected that Cezanne will be replaced by Rembrandt (and Phoenix will follow).
Like desktop CPUs, the new generation of APUs scheduled to arrive in 2022 will also have Zen 4 CPUs, RDNA 2 GPUs, AM5 motherboard slots, PCIe 5.0, and DDR5 memory interfaces.
