Update: Gigabyte has invalidated the previous claim, citing it was an error. The company does not know when exactly next Ryzen series will be released.

Gigabyte confirms AM5 support for next-gen Ryzen CPUs

An update to the AM5 platform should be launched this year. 

It looks like the 7000 and 7000X3D series may not be a final word from AMD for 2023 Ryzen desktop CPU plans. Gigabyte is now claiming that there is a next-generation upgrade for desktop platform is to be unveiled later this year.

This was stated in a press release for workstation E133-C10 and R133-C10 servers which are designed to support AMD Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” series processor. Whether Gigabyte here refers to workstation or gaming AMD AM5 CPU series, it is simply too early to tell.

One could argue that the series update could launch in a form of a Zen4 refresh, but the press release clearly states ‘next-generation’, strongly implying Zen5 architecture. Moreover, the same text refers to this upgrade as ‘Ryzen 7000 successor’, which is typically not a word to be used for series refresh.

Although Intel made no comments on the LGA1700 platform future, it is now expected that the company will refresh its Raptor Lake-S series in a third quarter of this year. Those series would have to compete with the Ryzen 7000X3D series and, if Gigabyte’s press release is to be believed, a possible next-gen upgrade.
