Ryzen with 3D V-Cache is coming in early 2022


Recommended Posts


In a friendly conversation between John Taylor, AMD's CMO, and Robert Hallock, director of technical marketing, the two confirmed the Ryzen 5000 series refresh, which will be compatible with AM4 motherboards. Moreover, they also mentioned a new laptop series is coming in early 2022, featuring a "Power Management" framework capable of balancing the CPU load and power consumption to maximize power efficiency.


The naming of the new CPU series hasn't been confirmed. However, considering the "generational leap" they bring and the difference between the Ryzen 1000 and 2000 series (Zen to Zen+), they will most likely be the Ryzen 6000.


During the conversation, Robert Hallock also confirmed we will see Ryzen processors moving to a new platform in late 2022. Robert added the new platform will support PCIe 5.0, DDR5 memory and compatibility with existing AM4 CPU coolers.

Interesting side note that Hallock mentioned there. I remember previous leaks had the next-gen AMD desktop platform supporting PCIe 4.0 instead of 5.0.


I thought nothing of PCIe 5.0 until realizing that PCIe 5.0 SSDs would basically be equivalent to DDR3 RAM in terms of sequential reads/writes. I don't feel like it would matter much in real-world performance, but it's impressive.

Not bad, but considering we are on the verge of a whole new platform, I am keeping my 5950X rig for the next while and will make a jump to the new platform after it has matured a little.
