GIGABYTE drops that this year there will be a new generation of AMD Ryzen processors

With hardware sales in the doldrums, there are many doubts about the launches that should take place during the course of this year. The most notorious case is that of Intel Meteor Lake, whose desktop release seems to have been replaced by a Raptor Lake refreshment. in front of AMD seems that there will be a new generation of Ryzen processorsor at least that is what GIGABYTE has dropped through a press release.

The highlight of the press release published by GIGABYTE is the announcement of entry-level Ryzen 7000 processor models for servers. GIGABYTE 1U servers feature socket AM5 and support processors with a TDP ranging from 105 to 175 watts. Although they are designed for models of processors based on the Zen 4 architecture, the well-known manufacturer of hardware components ensures that they will be compatible with the next generation of processors, which is normal if we take into account AMD’s policy of maintaining the same socket for several generations of their processors.

GIGABYTE has said that the AM5 platform will be supported until at least 2025, but the interesting thing comes when the company mentions that “the next generation of AMD Ryzen desktop processors due out later this year will also support this AM5 platformSo customers who buy these servers today have the opportunity to upgrade to the successor to the Ryzen 7000 series.”

Generations of AMD's Zen architecture

The “next generation of AMD Ryzen desktop processors” part suggests that the red giant is scheduled to launch a new generation of processors for this year 2023, but It remains up in the air if it is Ryzen 8000 based on the Zen 5 architecture or if we would be facing a recycling of Ryzen 7000. It is important to note that Ryzen 7000 has not sold well at all, and seeing the current market trend and Intel aiming more to recycle Raptor Lake than launch Meteor Lake on the desktop, it is possible that AMD ends up choosing to do the same not to. take too many risks.

For now it is known that Zen 5 would be manufactured with a TSMC 4nm process and that it would introduce some changes at the architecture level that should bring improvements in aspects such as performance and efficiency, as well as implement optimizations for artificial intelligence and machine learning.

The current market situation has caused the launch of the mid-range RX 7000 graphics to be delayed at least until mid-year, and that is that at big three The stock is accumulating in the face of the turbulent economic context in which we live and, possibly, the growing disenchantment that exists around the PC as a platform to play.
