Here is all the information we managed to gather about AMD Zen 5 Ryzen 8000 series release date and specifications.
AMD did not want to stop here with just 7000 and 7000X3D CPU series. According to the Gigabyte statement in a press release, the new CPU from AMD could come out next year. It is too early to tell if Gigabyte was referring to the AMD Ryzen 8000 series.
Gigabyte’s update invalidated the previous claim, citing it was an error.
This is the current statement from the Gigabyte website:
Even though these new products are entry-level servers, CPU support does not end here and the AM5 platform is supported until at least 2025. The next generation of AMD Ryzen desktop processors will also be supported on this AM5 platform, so customers who purchase these servers today have the opportunity to upgrade to the Ryzen 7000 series successor.Gigabyte
The new Ryzen series Zen 5 8000 will be on an “Advanced Node”, and AMD will probably use the new TSMC’s 3nm process node.
When the AMD Ryzen 7000 series was announced, AMD claimed that the AM5 socket would be supported until 2025, which means the new Ryzen 8000 CPUs will use the AM5 platform and probably work with the last-gen motherboards (A620, B650, and X670).
There are some rumors that AMD’s “All-new microarchitecture” may be similar to Intel’s LITTLE/hybrid CPUs by splitting the CPU into performance and efficiency cores. This process may help AMD cram more cores into a CPU and keep the power draw low.
For the new “All-new microarchitecture”, AMD is integrating further AI and machine learning optimizations.-
Zen 5 chip stack will be similar to Zen 4: a vanilla Zen 5 core, a compact core (Zen 5c), and a V-Cache enabled core.
Zen 5 CPU cores will have a mix of 4nm and 3 nm processes. The 4 nm node is an optimized version of 5 nm, and 3 nm is a whole new node.
Here are some leaks/rumors that we found:
According to the rumors, AMD will take an approach similar to Intel. They adding Performance + Efficiency cores to Zen 5, by doing this it enabled them to add more cores in their CPUs.
In the leak mentioned, Zen 5 will offer a 30% IPC gain over Zen 4 and some significant changes in the L1, L2, and L2 cache.
As we are far from the launch day, we don’t know what prices will have for the new Ryzen 8000 Series line-up. We think that AMD will try to stay close to the prices of the Ryzen 7000 Series.
Here are some price estimates:
- Ryzen 5 8600X – $279
- Ryzen 7 8700X – $349
- Ryzen 9 8900X – $549
- Ryzen 9 8950X – $699
As for the X3D variants that have 3D V-Cache should cost more.
Here are the price estimates for the X3D variants:
- Ryzen 7 8800X3D – $509
- Ryzen 9 8900X3D – $649
- Ryzen 9 8950X3D – $799
Wrapping things up, Zen 5 architecture could be launched in 2024, as the Zen 3 and Zen 4 were released in 2020 and 2022, respectively. Is a good guess that Zen 5 will launch in 2024.
