虽然A Fan们正安心等待5nm Zen 4锐龙7000处理器，但实际上，下下代架构Zen5的研发工作早就开始了。
次年，Zen 2主要设计师之一、AMD企业院士David Suggs在个人档案中提到已加入Zen 5团队，操刀研发设计。当年10月，AMD CTO Mark Papermaster对外确认，Zen 4、Zen 5正由不同的团队独立开发。
RedGamingTech在最新爆料中给出了Zen 5的偷跑细节，包括首次采用类似Intel 12代酷睿的大小核混合架构、其中锐龙9系为纯大核、对应的锐龙8000桌面CPU最高可到32核等。
性能方面，Zen 4之于Zen 3的IPC增幅在19%左右，而Zen 5之于Zen 4居然要提升到30%，可谓相当恐怖。
虽然Zen 5还没有明确时间点，但考虑到Intel下半年就会迭代13代酷睿Raptor Lake，明年跟进14代酷睿Metoer Lake，这势必加速AMD竞品的开发进程，且拭目以待吧。
Although A fans are waiting for the 5nm Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 processor with peace of mind, in fact, the research and development of the next-generation architecture Zen5 has already begun.
Friends who have an impression may still remember that in 2018, in a video uploaded by AMD’s official YouTube, Mike Clark, the father of Zen architecture and chief designer, revealed for the first time that the team had started Zen5 research and development. You know, Zen+ was not even at that time. Officially debut.
The following year, one of the main designers of Zen 2, David Suggs, an AMD enterprise academician, mentioned in his personal file that he had joined the Zen 5 team to develop and design. In October of that year, AMD CTO Mark Papermaster confirmed that Zen 4 and Zen 5 are being independently developed by different teams.
Since they do not interfere with each other, it seems reasonable to have such a huge difference in the underlying architecture.
RedGamingTech gave the sneak run details of Zen 5 in the latest revelations, including the first use of a hybrid architecture of large and small cores similar to Intel’s 12th-generation Core, of which the Ryzen 9 series is a pure large-core, and the corresponding Ryzen 8000 desktop CPU can reach up to 32 nuclear etc.
In terms of performance, the IPC increase of Zen 4 to Zen 3 is around 19%, while Zen 5 to Zen 4 has to increase to 30%, which is quite scary.
In addition, Zen 5 completely reconstructs the cache part, and the capacity of L1, L2 and L3 will be greatly increased.
Although Zen 5 has no clear time point, considering that Intel will iterate on the 13th-generation Core Raptor Lake in the second half of the year, and follow up with the 14th-generation Core Metoer Lake next year, this is bound to accelerate the development process of AMD’s competing products, and we will wait and see.
