Ryzen reaches Pinnacle
According to DigiTimes, AMD has confirmed to motherboard manufacturers an updated roadmap with 12nm LP Pinnacle CPUs coming in February 2018. The Pinnacle series are considered a Ryzen refresh on a smaller node.
The Pinnacle Ridge is a codename for Summit Ridge successor. I’m not sure what DigiTimes is referring here, but they claim that Ryzen 7 will be succeeded by a CPU codenamed Pinnacle 7.
The report further confirms that AMD is also planning low-power Pinnacle CPUs in April 2018, which will be followed by Pinnacle Pro for the enterprise market. The 400-series motherboards (X470/B450/A420) would also launch in April.
Bear in mind, that it is possible that Pinnacle is just an internal codename for Ryzen 2000.
