AMD Prepares to Launch Zen 5 CPUs: Key Details and Release Timeline

Published by

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has confirmed the upcoming release of its Zen 5 architecture-based CPUs, targeted for deployment by the end of this year. During its recent quarterly earnings conference, AMD outlined its strategic initiatives for 2024, which include the expansion of its processor lineup across various sectors. AMD's CEO, Lisa Su, elaborated on the company's focus for the year, which involves increasing its presence in the data center market. This includes scaling the production of Instinct GPUs and boosting the market penetration of EPYC processors. Concurrently, AMD is set to introduce its next-generation Zen 5 processors for both PCs and servers. In preparation for the rollout, AMD has started the distribution of test samples of its new CPUs to industry partners. This early phase of deployment involves sharing Zen 5-based EPYC Turin server processors with partners, such as cloud service providers and server manufacturers. Full commercial availability of the EPYC Turin platform is anticipated in 2025, following its initial launch in the latter half of 2024.

AMD also unveiled plans to release the next generation of Ryzen mobile processors, known as Strix Point, during the second half of this year. These processors are notable for incorporating a powerful neural engine designed to enhance artificial intelligence capabilities. Strix Point chips are expected to initially be featured in premium laptops, with a broader rollout to more accessible devices projected around 2025. Despite this extensive update, AMD remained reticent regarding details about its upcoming desktop CPU models, such as the Ryzen 9000 series or Granite Ridge. Enthusiasts and industry stakeholders are advised to look forward to Computex 2024, where further information is expected to be disclosed by Lisa Su.
