AMD is not finished with AM4, that is been confirmed by themselves, however what precisely does the pink crew plan on doing with the platform shifting ahead? Well, the reply could be increasing it with much more Ryzen CPUs with 3D V-Cache and low-end choices.
AMD’s AM4 Longevity Plans: More Ryzen 3D V-Cache and Low-End Options In The Works?
There have been various rumors of what AMD is planning on with its AM4 platform now that the corporate has launched its AM5 platform. The AM5 platform is the trail ahead, providing Ryzen 7000 CPUs with Zen 4 cores and DDR5 / PCIe 5.0 assist. But AMD is aware of that the overwhelming majority of its userbase will not be shifting to AM5 simply but. As such, AMD gave us a teaser of what to anticipate on the platform with its Ryzen 7 5800X3D and several other mainstream Ryzen 5000 choices. Based on the most recent rumors, it appears like we’re going to see extra of that motion coming to the AM4 platform within the coming months.
There may even be new low-end AM4 merchandise sooner or later.

Leaker, Greymon55, states that the rumors of AMD prepping not one however a number of Zen 3D merchandise below the AM4 banner are true and there can be extra info coming this month. Note how solely Zen 3D is talked about which suggests we’ll get new CPUs below the Ryzen 5000 household. AMD’s 5800X3D relies on the 5800X with elevated cache and retains the 8 core / 16 thread design.
It’s attainable that the following additions may very well be based mostly on the Ryzen 5 5600X, Ryzen 9 5900X, and Ryzen 9 5950X. We cannot precisely say which SKU can be getting the 3D V-Cache therapy however 5600X3D can be a single CCD V-Cache chip, providing as much as 32 MB L3 + 64 MB LLC (V-Cache). The Ryzen 9 components will theoretically function twin V-Cache CCD’s in order that’s 64 MB of L3 + 128 MB of LLC (V-Cache) or 64 MB per CCD for a complete of 192 MB of cache. If you add within the 8 MB of L2 too, you get a complete of 200 MB of L3 cache.
Now an fascinating route that AMD might go along with a Ryzen 9 V-Cache half is to supply a single CCD with V-Cache and the opposite with out it to make up a complete of 128 MB of cache. That’s nonetheless 33% extra cache than the 5800X3D and will end in some spectacular gaming efficiency numbers. But as we talked about earlier, we can not verify if such an SKU exists or not however solely that AMD may be engaged on it. As for the low-end components, it’s attainable that AMD plans on changing its Ryzen 4000 Renoir-X chips with Cezanne-X chips below the Ryzen 5000 household. Cezanne-X with Zen 3 cores will provide higher efficiency and provide a very good likelihood of the pink crew being aggressive towards Intel’s Alder Lake and Raptor Lake funds CPUs until Zen 4 goes mainstream.
These 3D V-Cache Ryzen 5000 CPUs will enable customers on AM4 to have one thing new with out the necessity to change their complete platform migrating to AM5. With that mentioned, AM5 may even be getting an upgraded Zen 4 V-Cache lineup by the top of this 12 months, giving fanatic avid gamers the choice to both follow their present AM4 setups and use a Zen 3D half or go all out within the premium Zen 4D vary.
