At last night's event "Together we extension_PCs", where AMD introduced the Ryzen 7000 desktop processors, some details of the company's future plans were revealed, in particular the Zen 5 architecture that followed Zen 4 will enter the market in 2024.

In terms of closer prospects, the next major processor announcement from AMD is scheduled for the following year: it is early next year that the company intends to present a family of Ryzen 7,000 mobile processors based on Zen's microarchitecture. In addition, AMD's technical director Mark Peypermaster, like Ryzen 75800X3D. However, he refused to mention the specific time frame as "in the future".

At the same time, the timing of the Zen 4 server versions with 3D V-Cache technology has been defined with greater certainty, such processors will appear in early 2023 and the EPYC Bergamo processors designed for high-density servers with Zen 4c kernels will have to be released — these chips, again, will receive up to 128 nuclei, while the conventional EPYC Genoa with the traditional Zen 4 architecture will be limited to 96 nuclei.

The AMD also mentioned the Ryzen Threadripper family of processors. According to David MacAfi, Vice President and General Manager through client channels, AMD is very careful to consider the possibility of releasing Ryzen Threadripper processors on the Zen architecture.

In addition, David Makafi promised that the Ryzen 7000 desktop processor family would not be limited to four models and would be expanded; additional processor models covering a wider range of price categories would be released early next year.

With regard to the more remote prospects, the next Zen 4 architecture of Zen 5 is planned by AMD at the end of 2024, and the processors will be based on 4 nm process. According to Peypermaster, Zen 5 is a "".

In parallel, AMD representatives promised that the new Socket AM5 platform, released with the Ryzen 7000 processors, would remain valid until at least 2025, meaning that the Socket AM5 motherboards would support not only Ryzen 7,000, but also the Ryzen advanced processors built on the Zen 5 architecture.
