In latest presentation AMD confirms 5 nm Zen 4 CPUs will launch by 2021


AMD presented a set of slides with roadmaps for the next couple of years. We were able to spot some interesting additions here and there which basically confirm that AMD is pushing most CPU and GPU lineups to TSMC’s 5 nm manufacturing process by the end of 2021. First up is the Data Center CPU roadmap slide that shows a 5 nm Zen 4 EPYC “Genoa” lineup launching in 2021. We also know that AMD booked considerable 5 nm production capacities at TSMC for the remainder of 2020 and most of 2021, so there is still a chance to see 5 nm desktop CPUs in late 2021. As for the upcoming GPU architectures, the new slides show that both CDNA 2 and RDNA 3 are to be released next year on an “advanced node.” We are not exactly sure why AMD does not mention 5 nm here.
