It seems like the Ryzen 3000 series of desktop CPUs has only just come out. We’ve loved every second of it, especially with the crazy Ryzen 3950X in the Alienware Aurora 9 Ryzen Edition. Hell, when a CPU can run a game like Crysis, what’s not to love?
So new reports suggesting that the next generation of Ryzen are coming soon is awesome news. According to Digitimes via Tom’s Hardware, Ryzen 4000 will be announced officially in August or September, and will release later this year. Which is great news, especially since the original announcement should’ve been at Computex in May.
AMD has been crushing it in both the desktop and laptop segments. If you’ve been keeping up with us, you know we at Coolnation have been loving it on both fronts. Intel may currently have the benefit of higher clock speeds, but AMD’s Ryzen chips are on a smaller die process (7nm), offer more cores, and have so far been more affordable to boot. And the company’s stock price shows for it, barely staggering even with Coronavirus hurting much of the economy.
This news absolutely doesn’t mean that you should wait before picking up a new CPU. After all, Ryzen 3000 has proven spectacular in so many ways. If you are thinking of upgrading, Tom’s does point out that the 4000 series should use the same AM4 CPU socket.
