During a special presentation celebrating the 5th anniversary of the Ryzens, AMD confirmed the path it had taken with their development. In other words, we learned how Ryzen processors will be developed in 2022.
What awaits Ryzen processors in 2022?
According to the disclosed information, new Ryzen will be released in the first quarter of 2022. We are talking about Ryzen 5000/6000 (the name remains unknown at the moment), which will use the current Zen 3 architecture, but combine it with 64 MB of additional 3D Vertical Cache. It is said that this add-on provides a 4 to 25% increase in gaming performance, which gives the impression of not so much an improvement as an entry into a new generation of processors.
