AMD Ryzen Lead Product Manager, Robert Hallock has confirmed that the Zen 3 based Ryzen 4000 processors are on track for a late 2020 launch. This was reiterated just minutes ago in the Ryzen 3000XT briefing. As per Hallock, both the next-gen desktop Ryzen CPUs as well as the Milan chips will launch in Q4, first the former and then the latter.
Recently many sources had claimed that AMD might push the mainstream Ryzen 4000 launch to early 2021 as the existing Zen 2 parts are doing quite well thanks to a lack of competition from Team Blue. A rumor from Taiwanese outlet, Digitimes had also pointed to the fact that Zen 3 might leverage TSMC’s 5nm node rather than the 7nm+ variant. Both these rumors are fake and AMD has officially confirmed that both the consumer and server products based on Zen 3, namely Ryzen 4000 “Vermeer” as well as the 3rd Gen Epyc Milan CPUs will launch in Q4 2020. Thanks!
