AMD belies rumor that the launch of the Ryzen 4000 series would be delayed until 2021
Today, June 17, earlier we reported on the rumor that indicated that AMD would be postponing the launch of its Ryzen 4000 series chipsets , or the “Zen 3”, until next year.
However, the company quickly rushed to disprove the rumors and ensured that the Vermeer and Zen 3 processors arrive on time this year. The information was provided by the company in an interview with WCCF Tech.
According to previous rumors, this postponement would be made due to the success of current-generation processors. With this, the Ryzen 3000XT chipset would have more time to market and could have its sales even more boosted.
In the interview, which was chaired by product managers from AMD’s customer segment, the company made it clear that rumors about the postponement are inaccurate and highlighted that the details about the launch of the Ryzen 4000 series – which were provided to WCCF Tech during the conversation – are not under embargo.
This reinforces the thesis that, in fact, the chipsets will arrive later this year, otherwise it would be very likely that the company would try to hide some details about the product.
AMD also took the opportunity to deny rumors that “Zen 3” processors are based on the 5nm architecture, stating that, in reality, they will be produced with 7nm microarchitecture.
Anxiously awaited by enthusiasts, the new generation of AMD Ryzen 4000 processors for desktops has already had a recent rumor pointing that “AMD may delay Ryzen 4000 desktop CPU launches” the new line would be presented in October bringing the Zen 3 architecture on board for desktop PCs.
However, after we saw that the company made Ryzen 3000XT processors official, there is a suspicion that the company will push the launch of the new generation for next year (2021), something that was recently pointed out in a DigiTimes report.
For the publication, the reason for imagining this to happen is the good reception of the current generation of processors (Ryzen 3000) on the world market, being mostly among the best sellers (of the first 6, 4 are from AMD’s current line), including the Ryzen 7 3700X which follows first.
Another reason that seems to be considered for the change of plans would be the lack of need to launch something now, considering that the current generation already manages to compete in the performance aspect with the Comet Lake CPUs from Intel.
One point that remains pending, however, is that AMD has repeatedly confirmed that Zen 3 and RDNA 2 would arrive later this year and this can be partly maintained, given that the brand may possibly still present the new generation of Epyc processors. , with desktop variants expected to come out later.
As a result, AMD would set its calendar more aggressively, possibly overshadowing the launch of the 10nm Intel Alder Lake line that may only arrive next year.
