AMD talked about consumer processors with Zen 5 architecture and mentioned 3nm technology

At an event for financial analysts, AMD not only talked about the innovations and performance levels Zen 4 processors, but also looked ahead to a more distant future with Zen 5 processors expected to be released by the end of 2024, including a new 3nm processor architecture.
Source image: AMDThe enlarged picture of AMD plans on processor architectures development was revealed by the company's technical director Mark Papermaster.
First of all, the Zen 4 and Zen 5 architecture processor families will also include models with 3D V-Cache memory.
Since this slide makes no distinction between client and server processor architectures, Zen 4c and Zen 5c architecture carriers are also placed in line with the rest.
Logically, they should be offered in the server segment, offering processors optimized in terms of specific performance for servers with a high density layout.Image source: AMDIt is noteworthy that the processors of Zen 4 generation will be available in both 5-nm and 4-nm technology.
For the Zen 5 generation, a combination of 4nm and 3nm technology will be relevant.
Whether it will manifest itself as part of specific models, or lithography steps will replace each other sequentially during the lifecycle of the processors, is not specified.
In principle, the chip layout allows for both options.The debut of the Zen 5 architecture is tied to 2024.
It is reported to be a new architecture from an evolutionary perspective that will offer new optimizations for artificial intelligence and machine learning systems.
Both performance and energy efficiency will be improved.Image source: AMDIn the press release for the analyst event, AMD mentions the code names of the future generations of processors.
So, in the mobile segment, Phoenix Point 4nm processors combining Zen 4 computing architecture and RDNA 3 graphics will debut in 2023.
In 2024, they are expected to give way to Strix Point processors with Zen 5 architecture and integrated RDNA 3+ graphics.
As it is specified, Phoenix Point processors will use chipset layout, which AMD has neglected until now in the mobile segment.
Technological process of Phoenix Point components production is not specified, but it is marked that it will be more advanced than the 4-nm.Image source: AMDIn desktop segment processors should be replaced by Granite Ridge processors with Zen 4 architecture, but their announcing dates are not specified.
It is clear only that they will come out before the end of 2024.
As part of the architecture Zen 4 will be presented before the 5nm Ryzen Threadripper family processors.
Moreover, Ryzen 7000 family will include models with 3D V-Cache memory.
