New rumors are coming that AMD will extend the life of the AM4 socket with new processors. Although there has recently been speculation about the launch of some Ryzen 7000 with DDR4 RAM support in socket AM4, rumors are now circulating that the real launch will be linked to the expansion of the family of processors based on on the AMD Zen3D architecturewhich notably increases the cache, which translates into a noticeable improvement in game performance.
Although it is stated that more specific information will be revealed in the coming weeks, it is now assumed that the technology 3D V-Cover generate new high-end processors, remembering that at present we only have at AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3Da CPU that’s basically the Ryzen 7 5800X with 8 cores and 16 threads with 96MB of cache (up from 32MB), speculating that we might see more powerful Zen3D variants based on the Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 5950X from 12 and 16 cores respectively.
Moreover, it is even indicated that we will have a new low-end product portfolio for socket AM4, so AMD could try to compete Intel Alder Lakewhich offered a much broader product catalog considering all market segments, which worked exceptionally well, especially in low-end products, which AMD lacked with its Ryzen 5000. In addition, Intel will reduce the price of these processors for two reasons: Raptor Lake, and that hardware demand is down, so they will be looking to encourage it reduce prices.
The only thing that’s for sure is that AMD has never confirmed that AMD Ryzen 7000 processors are compatible with DDR4 RAM, and that’s a notable weak point in terms of the cost of updating the platform, since the use of DDR5 RAM is forced. In this way, it is obvious that the only possible solution to absorb any type of purchase related to a tighter budget is to offer more upgrade options for current motherboards AM4, so we’ll see what decision the company ultimately makes.
