AMD Socket AM5 "Raphael" Ryzen Processor Confirmed for H2-2022 Launch

AMD's next-generation Ryzen "Raphael" processor could launch only in the second half of 2022, confirms a leaked company slide scored by VideoCardz. The slide points to a Ryzen 5000X3D series product-stack update within the 1H-2022. These are Socket AM4 processors that leverage the company's updated "Zen 3(+)" CPU core die (CCD), which features 64 MB of 3D Vertical cache memory in addition to 32 MB of L3. AMD claims that 3DV Cache technology significantly improves performance akin to a generational update (anywhere between 5% to 25% depending on the application). The company is targeting "Spring" 2022 for launch, which would put this around early-Q2.

The "Raphael" Socket AM5 processor is sure to catch much of the attention, as it's the company's true next-gen desktop product. It heralds Socket AM5, a new LGA-based socket; and next-generation connectivity that includes DDR5 memory and PCI-Express Gen 5. The CCDs of these processors are built on the TSMC N5 (5 nm) silicon fabrication node, and are based on the "Zen 4" microarchitecture. The leaked slide shows the first grainy picture of Socket AM5, with a retention mechanism not unlike what we're used to, on the Intel platform. We're hearing rumors that AM5 will somehow manage cooler-compatibility with AM4 despite the radical redesign to the socket. An H2-2022 launch would put "Raphael" close to Intel's 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" launch, as team blue hopes to return to an annual IPC-uplift cadence, with up to 8 "Raptor Cove" P-cores, and 16 "Gracemont" E-cores.

I read a very interesting news article on another website about this architecture.

"a single 8 'LTDP' Zen 4 core stack with 30W TDP will offer faster performance than the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X (105W TDP)"

Wow.

If they achieve a 15% core for core performance update with the v-cache, I don't think anybody can claim it's a waste....now Zen4 should be very impressive though, I've been paying attention to leaks for a while now and we're talking a 29%+ IPC uplift (though some sources put it higher), v-cache performance uplift, frequency bump from 5nm....we could be seeing a 35%+ core for core performance uplift which would be seriously impressive.

AM5 DDR5 only, so will there be tons of AM4 setups +DDR4 dumped on ebay for sale at the end of the year? Lets hope the DDR5 supply is upto it by then.

It does? I see only one specific model number in there.

You're welcome :)
Since it requires the same parts that are in shortage to scale up ddr5 production likely won't go anywhere but let's wait and see I guess

At least this time the CES keynote will be interesting contrary to whatever they did last year

Looks like 5800X v-cache is the going to be the lowest/cheapest model of the series.

More like the only model, why would AMD otherwise put that exact model there?

Rumor now is a $500 5800x3d. Which if true, is a major OOF.

They basically conceded until Zen 4 . 5800x3D will be overpriced and underwhelming. This is what arrogance and greed looks like. 5800x will be my last purchase from this company.

Yes, but it's quite rude to point to a different site, when the site you're at have coverage of whatever it is you want to mention.
Manners is apparently not a thing any more.

This website took the story from another website, it's not as if it is exclusive to this website.

Why do I need manners to use the internet? Why are you getting your knickers in a twist so much? Anybody would think I had posted a link to a porn website or something.

No, I took it from a YouTube video, which I also linked to and gave credit to, as that's how you do things.
I get my knickers in a twist since as you admitted, you have no manners.

But I'm not posting a news story that requires credit...

So you think when someone needs to look for something on the internet they use this website to look for it? And they must always say please and thank you? lol

Don't worry there's plenty of other websites like this that steal their stories from one another :)

They don't steal, they just repost them. Hence why most tech websites show their own take on the same stories.

Didn't ask for a thanks, I simply tried to explain to you about manners, which you already admitted you don't have any, so...
In this case though, I did actually add some details that at least at the time, weren't known about the engineer that did the video.
