    AMD to extend Ryzen 3000 CPU life cycle, according to report

    Industry sources say this means Zen 3-based Ryzen 4000 CPUs will be pushed to 2021.

    No great shock, given they've just refreshed certain models with the XT.

    Re: AMD to extend Ryzen 3000 CPU life cycle, according to report

    Well looks like I won't be upgrading this year if that's the case. More time to save I suppose, at this rate maybe I will be going threadripper instead lol.

    Having said that, if I was AMD, I'd be pushing out as much as I can as fast as I can because as much as I like to see AMD on top for a change, I'd never be underestimating the sheer financial clout that Intel has to speed up development....

    I've not long upgraded my main rig, but now that 500 series chipset is out I'm hoping to pick up a 450 based iTX board for my server refresh, add to that one of the AM4 G series chips that'll give me a smaller case (Node 304) and something a bit newer than my existing box (i5-3470/Node 804) so silver linings and all that..

    Threadripper is kinda being deprecated though...

    Not if you can work with more than 16c/32t though, which I can, although I'll be carefully weighing up the price versus real world benefit (at present it's an extra £1500 outlay)

    As much as I'd like to see everything I do pushed to the gpu, sadly that still isn't the case.

    Not surprising really. These CPUs are so far and away better than the competition, and intel are constantly fluffing their releases. Honestly I found it kinda weird how they were putting out another one so close to it.

    Bah, no new PC this year then.... I'll hold off for the Ryzen 4000 launch. I guess it's likely done to just clear inventory for maximum profit. XT makes even more sense now.

    Luckily that case can take a full sized PSU:

    Not the news I wanted to hear. Can totally understand it with Intel stuck on 14nm with no real alternative for months. However if they did release the 4000 they would be even further ahead gaining all the things that follow: Brand enhancement, tech d1ck swinging etc surely that would pretty much kill Intel desktop even in the B2B die hard Intel crowd unless an amd specific vulnerability was found? It would also shine a lens on their real prize the server market where Epyc is simply Epic and mainstream would become AMD on both fronts...

    It depends on what they do with the delay. If they put the time into pushing the 4000 series Ryzen's onto 5nm (there where supposed to ship as 7nm) then its worth it. If they use it to sit on their behinds and rake in the cash then no. I suspect they know Intel will try and come for them and they will use this time to pull a little more out of the 4000 series but who knows? I do know AMD have been the underdog for a while so I don't see them becoming complacent just yet.

    Yeah, I've been trying to get an Asus X570 mITX board and its been postponed since the 23/may.

    Re: AMD to extend Ryzen 3000 CPU life cycle, according to report

    There's been mixed messages about AMD maybe moving Zen3 to the 5nm process - perhaps the delayed launch gives AMD the time to make this happen, as it gives them more scope to fight off Intel's upcoming resurgence in 2021.

    Until then Zen 2 CPUs are more than competitive enough.

    5nm is out of the question for Zen3 (https://hexus.net/tech/news/cpu/1432...irm-zen-3-7nm/). The question is which variety of 7nm it's using.
