New AMD Ryzen 9000 processors based on the Zen 5 architecture should debut in the next few months. Thanks to the latest leaks, we are learning more and more about them.
High Yield YT, which has a recognized reputation when it comes to rumors related to the red manufacturer, is responsible for the latest rumors about AMD Ryzen 9000 processors. His sources reveal not only the probable release date of the systems, but also interesting information about their specifications.
AMD Ryzen 9000 processors
AMD Ryzen 9000 processors will probably debut at the turn of May and June 2024. They will support the AM5 socket and will be compatible with motherboards with 600 series chipsets, although a BIOS update will probably be necessary here.
The new systems are to be based on the same lithography as the Ryzen 7000 series. We are talking about 6nm cIOD (client I/O die). The cores themselves are to be built using the TSMC 4 nm (EUV) technological process. It is almost certain that they will support DDR5 memory clocked higher than 5200 MHz. Besides, their so-called sweetspot is DDR-6400 instead of the current DDR5-6000.
Zen 5’s architecture is also to be chiplet. The processors will consist of CCD units, each of which will contain 8 Nirvana cores, 1 MB of L2 cache and an as yet unknown amount of L3 memory. They are expected to bring about a 10-15 percent increase in IPC performance, which in games will put them on par with Ryzen 7000X3D models, but without 3D V-Cache.
