Initial support for AMD Zen4 in HWiNFO

AMD Zen4 systems are nowhere to be seen yet, but proper firmware is already being distributed to partners, which allows some software companies to offer initial support for the upcoming series.

AMD Zen4 is not launching till next year, but HWiNFO, a popular diagnostic and information tool for computer components, already lists Zen4 support in its upcoming changes. The changelog lists ‘enhanced early support for some Zen4-based systems’ but it does not explain exactly which systems are to be supported.

AMD is to launch its EPYC and Ryzen series based on Zen4 architecture in late 2022, the most recent rumors seem to suggest. In the last few weeks, we have had substantial leaks on AMD’s upcoming AM5 desktop platform for upcoming “Raphael” CPUs. The Zen4 will bring support for DDR5 memory which will match Intel’s Alder Lake support. The series will also require a new AM5 socket which will be LGA-based, a render of such GPU has been leaked earlier this month and has been attached to this post above.

HWiNFO also adds support for NVIDIA Lite Hash Rate variants, as well as dedicated support for custom RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti models (NVIDIA reference cards are already supported). Custom cards often feature more sensors that can be read through software such as HWiNFO.
