As the successor to the popular Ryzen 3000 CPU Zen 2 series, AMD's new Zen 3 CPU will be launched soon.
We already know that AMD's Zen 2 is better than Intel's Coffee Lake in most aspects, from performance to price per core. What Zen 3 will bring is still unknown, but we have high hopes for it.
Please be sure to see AMD’s live announcement below:
Some people refer to AMD’s latest CPU series as Ryzen 4000, but there are rumors that they may change this name to Ryzen 5000, possibly to make mobile devices work with desktops Go online. The
Zen 3 processor will be produced using the new 7+ nanomanufacturing process. This provides the potential to improve efficiency and performance in previous architectures.
Zen 3 promises a lot, including higher core counts, higher clock speeds, higher instructions per clock, and higher transistor density. The most important thing is to reduce power consumption, but there are few details about it. This may mean a lower TDP or higher performance with the same amount of power, which seems to be the most likely way.
It is quite difficult to figure out what the performance of Zen 3 will look like compared to Zen 2. Although the processor upgrade is not a complete overhaul of the architecture, it is not a simple upgrade either. Therefore, the performance improvement does not necessarily reflect the differences we have seen between Zen and Zen + or even between Zen + and Zen 2. Update
: We now have more detailed specifications and a better understanding of the performance of these CPUs. AMD
Zen Line 3:
Some people call AMD’s latest CPU series Ryzen 4000, but there are rumors that they might This name will be abandoned for Ryzen 5000, probably to make the mobile device consistent with the desktop. The
Zen 3 processor will be produced using a new 7+ nanometer manufacturing process. This provides the potential to improve efficiency and performance in previous architectures.

update: AMD Zen 3 CPU will be released on November 5, 2020
What we know is that AMD Zen 3 processor will be released this year, this has been confirmed by AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su. The release date of the new AMD Zen 3 processors seems to be around October 8th or later, as shown in the recent AMD teaser video, with the tagline "A New Journey Start", announcing their main dates.
Similarly, the details have not been confirmed, but what we know is that this new architecture uses TSMC’s new 7nm+ semiconductor manufacturing process.
This new TSMC process uses extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography and the short wavelength of 13.5 nm for semiconductors. This should result in a potential 20% increase in transistor density and a 10% overall reduction in power consumption. The
details are sketchy at this point, but we are very happy to see the performance of Zen 3. Many of our details about Zen 3 are unconfirmed rumors, so it is difficult to say exactly what this new architecture will look like until it finally appears. Throw.
Hope that over time, we will get more confirmation from AMD, but before that we will wait for the official release. At the same time, if we receive more information, we will definitely notify you in time.
Update: We now have official pricing and product names for AMD Zen 3 5000
series CPUs. During the live broadcast, AMD announced the exact products and pricing that we can expect in the upcoming Zen 3 release. They are complete: the cost of the
AMD Zen 3 series remains to be assumed, but we believe that the price of these chips can be the same as that of the previous Zen 2 chips. Before the price is announced, let's take a look at the cost of the previous generation and have a better understanding of what to expect.
AMD already has a strong price advantage over Intel, so it may not need to cut prices further, but for PC makers this is an exciting time.
Zen 3 is expected to be AMD's latest microarchitecture before moving to DDR5 memory and new sockets, so if you are currently running AMD CPUs on AM4 sockets, you can be very happy. Zen 3 will support 500 series chipsets and 400 motherboards. AMD will obviously share a code with the manufacturer to allow compatibility with select B450 / X470 motherboards.
