Gigabyte Clarifies It Doesn’t Know When Ryzen 8000 Will Arrive
When Gigabyte’s enterprise division revealed last week that AMD would be introducing a successor to its Ryzen 7000 series CPUs this year, it caused quite a stir among die-hard fans. However, the company has since removed claims about when AMD’s Ryzen 8000 series products will be launched, and has since changed the wording of its press release. @9550 Pro and computer based.
“[We] We don’t know when the Ryzen 7000 successor will be released,” said Gigabyte spokesperson Liam Quinn. tech radar, confirmed that the wording was incorrect. “[We will] Please comment on the press release for clarification. But keep the original wording. ”
AMD’s official roadmap slides released in mid-2022 show that the company plans to release CPUs based on the Zen 5 and Zen 5c microarchitectures by 2024 (see right side of AMD’s roadmap slides). The year in the bottom corner is usually ‘by the end’ unless AMD changes something in the way it presents the data), meaning it was reasonable to expect Zen 5 powered Ryzen 8000 series processors this year .
In fact, AMD’s public client roadmap clearly indicates that Zen 5 based Strix Point CPUs for notebooks and Granite Ridge CPUs for desktops will be released by 2024. This is probably why Gigabyte mentioned this in their press release.

However, a Zen 5/Zen 5c launch in the second half of 2023 doesn’t exactly fit into AMD’s cadence of releasing new microarchitectures for client PCs about every two years. Moreover, given the sluggish demand for PCs, releasing an entirely new CPU family this year could be counterproductive. To that end, even if AMD had previously planned to launch Zen 5 based products in his 2023 calendar, such plans may have changed now.
“The next generation of AMD Ryzen desktop processors coming later this year will also be supported on this AM5 platform, so customers who buy these servers today have the opportunity to upgrade to the Ryzen 7000 series successor,” said the original. I read the press release.
