Today AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su will unveil the next-generation of Ryzen processors codenamed Vermeer.
AMD to announce its Ryzen 5000 series
The announcement comes with a twist. AMD decided to skip the 4000 series for its mainstream processors and introduce Zen3 cores under 5000 series instead. This should help to unify Ryzen and Zen nomenclatures for future series. Next year, AMD is expected to launch its Cezanne mobile processors, which should also feature Zen3 architecture.
AMD has kept the details under a closed lid, and there were practically no leaks, other than Ashes of the Singularity benchmarks or earlier rumors about skipping 4000 namings.
The announcement video, which will premier very soon, is titled ‘Where Gaming Begins’, indicating that the manufacturer has been focusing on gaming performance with this generation of AMD Ryzen processors.
It’s been so much fun getting ready. Looking forward to sharing what's next for @AMDRyzen. ? Join me tomorrow – October 8 at 11 CT https://t.co/hLv7CGFuQi #GameOnAMD pic.twitter.com/2sNd5IOFGh
