Zen 4 is where we’ll see AMD shift from the AM4 socket that’s been with us since before the first Ryzen chips launched, and to both a new AM5 socket and, according to recent rumours, a 6nm I/O chip at their heart too.
Will AMD 4th GEN be AM4?
The 4th gen Ryzen socket AM4 processor lineup will launch alongside AMD’s 600-series motherboard chipset, with forwards- and backwards-compatibility (i.e., “Vermeer” and “Renoir” working with older chipsets, and older AM4 processors working on 600-series chipset motherboards).
What socket will ZEN 4 use?
The AM5 platform will feature the LGA 1718 socket and as the name suggests, it’ll comprise 1718 pins that will make contact with the CPU. That’s actually 18 more pins than the Intel LGA 1700 socket which will support the next-generation Alder Lake CPUs.
Will Zen 4 have the same socket?
Moving to the new 5nm process, as indicated in the official screenshot above, will likely mean motherboards using the existing AM4 socket wouldn’t be supported. A new AM5 socket is expected, but that wouldn’t work with the AMD’s AMD’s current A520 and X570 motherboards.
Is AM4 and TR4 the same?
TR4 is a dead platform, AM4 has at least 1 more CPU it looks like. That and it sounds like you don’t need lanes, so going Threadripper sounds pointless.
Is AM4 future proof?
A: Yes! AMD officially plans to support next-gen AMD Ryzen™ desktop processors, with the “Zen 3” architecture, on AMD X570 and B550 motherboards. This will require a BIOS update. Specific details about this update will come at a later time, but we’re committed to keeping you up-to-date.
Is Zen 3 going to be AM4?
Very highly likely, yes. They promised support through 2020 for AM4, Milan (Zen 3 EPYC) is still using DDR4 and it’s very likely they will only switch to AM5 when they will introduce next gen memory, as they have done historically with AM2 & AM3.
Is it worth to wait for ZEN 4?
Yes, you should. Flare this. Zen 4 is very possibly a 2022 product on a different socket and memory standard, so it’s a matter of if you’re happy enough with your current system to wait until quite possibly mid to late 2022.
How much longer will AMD use AM4?
The quick answer is: AMD has openly stated that AM4 will be supported “through 2020” and “through Zen 3.” With current Zen 3 chips still on AM4, and Zen 4 not expected until 2022, it’s a reasonable deduction to say that AM4 will last at least until the end of 2021.
What socket will Zen 3 use?
|Min. feature size||TSMC 7 nm|
|Cores||4 to 16 (desktop)|
|Socket(s)||Socket AM4 Socket SP3|
Should I wait for AM5?
You would expect am5 to stick around for a few years, while am4 is already on its last leg. It makes perfect sense to wait for am5 to give yourself a better upgrade path. and you don’t know the performance gains of the future amd cpus. the 5000 series cpus were unexpected good.
Will 4th Gen Ryzen be AM4?
Yes, most probably 4000 series will be supported. A320 supports 3900X, so… No one but AMD knows that Ryzen 3 may still use AM4 and 4th gen is unlikely to still use AM4.
What socket will zen 5 use?
AMD Ryzen / Intel Core CPU Socket/Chipset Roadmap:
|Intel CPU||Socket||AMD CPU|
|10th Generation Comet Lake (2020)||LGA 1200||AMD Ryzen 5000 (Zen 3 – 2020)|
|11th Generation Rocket Lake (2020)||LGA 1200||AMD Ryzen 6000 (Zen 4 – 2022)|
|12th Generation Alder Lake (2021-2022)||LGA 1700||AMD Ryzen 7000 (Zen 5 – 2023)|
How much will Ryzen 4000 cost?
Ryzen 4000 mobile CPUs are found in a variety of laptops, from budget-conscious models for around $600, to higher-end gaming machines that reach almost $1,500. The desktop APUs tend to focus on lower-end and midrange desktop machines priced between $500 and $1,000.
Are Threadrippers worth it?
Yup,, but no too. It’s just not ideal for normal gpu gaming. I mean you build a thread ripper build put an 2080ti and played games on it. It will work fine, but as you said ‘worth the money ‘ then no, you can get the same performance with i9 or r9 or r7 or i7 processors.
Are Threadrippers good?
The Threadrippers have similarly impressive scores in other benchmarks. In the test for 7-zip compression, the Threadripper 3990X did almost twice as well as the Intel Core i9-10980XE, and in the V-Ray benchmark, the 3990X again scored almost 3 times as high as the i9-10980XE.
