AMD Ryzen Zen 4 CPUs and Radeon RX RDNA 3 GPUs Coming in 2022

Published by


AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su confirmed that its next-generation Ryzen Zen 4 CPUs and Radeon RX RDNA 3 GPUs are on track to launch in 2022 during her Q2 2021 investor call.

Zen 4 and RDNA 3 core architectures will form the basis for next-generation processors and graphics cards from AMD. Ryzen and Radeon products will be powered by these two IPs in 2022, which means AMD will have another great year of high-performance products. Two new Ryzen families will be available for desktop PCs in 2022, one based on Zen 3 with 3D V-Cache and the other based on Zen 4 (Raphael).

We remain on track to launch next-generation products in 2022, including our Zen 4 processors built on industry-leading 5nm process technology and our RDNA 3 GPUs.

Said AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su

We can expect great performance from AMD's next-generation Radeon RX (7000) series, which will be the industry's first gaming chip to feature an MCM (multi-chip module) architecture. As a result of the supply restrictions, AMD claims that they'll last until 2021, after which they'll ease up. AMD, on the other hand, believes that it will be able to grow substantially in the second half of next year. AMD also noted that it has initially started shipments of its Instinct MI200 accelerator based on the next-generation CDNA 2 architecture.

Ryzen 5000 desktop CPUs based on Zen 3 will be replaced by Raphael-based CPUs. These CPUs will be based on the Zen 4 5nm core architecture and will feature chiplet I/O arrays that are 6nm in size. According to AMD, its next-generation mainstream desktop CPUs will have more cores, up from the current maximum of 16 cores and 32 threads.

Navi 31 is said to have more than 15,000 shading cores, and a 3x performance increase over the Big Navi 21 GPU.  The Radeon RX AMD RDNA 3 'Navi 3' GPU line of graphics cards will compete with NVIDIA's Ada Lovelace line of GPUs.
