AMD Confirms Optical-Shrink of Zen 4 to the 4nm Node in its Latest Roadmap

AMD in its Ryzen 7000 sequence start function shared its around-upcoming CPU architecture roadmap, in which it confirmed that the “Zen 4” microarchitecture, at this time on the 5 nm foundry node, will see an optical-shrink to the 4 nm process in the close to potential. This doesn’t automatically point out a new-era CCD (CPU elaborate die) on 4 nm, it could even be a monolithic mobile SoC on 4 nm, or perhaps even “Zen 4c” (significant core-depend, lower clock-speed, for cloud-compute) but it doesn’t rule out the possibility of a 4 nm CCD that the firm can use throughout the two its organization and customer processors.

The final time AMD hyphenated two foundry nodes for a one generation of the “Zen” architecture, was with the first (very first-generation) “Zen,” which debuted on the 14 nm node, but was optically shrunk and refined on the 12 nm node, with the company designating the evolution as “Zen+.” The Ryzen 7000-sequence desktop processors, as perfectly as the impending EPYC “Genoa” server processors, will ship with 5 nm CCDs, with AMD ticking it off in its roadmap. Chronologically positioned future to it are “Zen 4” with 3D Vertical Cache (3DV Cache), and the “Zen 4c.” The corporation is scheduling “Zen 4” with 3DV Cache both equally for its server- and desktop segments. Additional down the roadmap, as we approach 2024, we see the company debut the future “Zen 5” architecture on the same 4 nm node, evolving into 3 nm on specific variants.
