AMD Zen 3 with 3D V-cache coming in Q1 2022@ 2021/10/13
In a special video interview/presentation celebrating five years of Ryzen and led by none other than AMD's own John Taylor and Robert Hallock, AMD shed some light about its future CPU path, including Zen 3 with 3D V-cache, Zen 4, PCIe Gen5, and DDR5.
AMD set up a rather neat video interview with John Taylor, AMD Chief Marketing Officer, and Robert Hallock, Director of Technical Marketing, looking back to the past several years of Ryzen, and what it brought in terms of performance improvements, advancements in packaging, and efficiency.
The video, which you can check out below, talks about AMD's commitment to Zen architecture, as well as what we can expect in the future. These include improvements and new features like the 3D V-Cache, as well as AM5, which is on track for 2022 with next-gen connectivity, like DDR5, PCIe Gen5, newest I/O standards, and compatibility with current AM4 coolers.
The video also talks about AMD focus on fixed function accelerators like noise cancelation and machine learning algorithms for teleconferencing as well as new power states and power managements profiles in the firmware which should maximize power efficiency in notebooks.
