AMD will not leave the AM4 platform to itself, as they already noted some time ago. The easiest way to keep the socket alive is to add processors periodically. The latest reports indicate that Reds can expand the width of the AM4 module with systems equipped with the revolutionary 3D V-Cache. In addition, models from the bottom will also appear.
Over the years, the AM4 platform has gained a lot of popularity. No wonder, because AMD Ryzen processors are the chosen and often chosen by consumers, and the carrier itself is backward compatible. Therefore, AMD’s decision to continue support for AM4 is not surprising. Reds has not revealed any details about it, but there have been reports on the net that we can expect more chips with 3D V-Cache memory and modules from the bottom. The new AM5 platform will allow the installation of Ryzen 7000 series processors, and support for DDR5 or PCIe 5.0. However, AMD knows very well that despite significant improvements, a large group of users will not decide to switch and will remain with the already outdated AM4 mount.
According to the latest reports, we can expect the width of the AM4 socket to be extended by additional processors using 3D V-Cache memory.
A well-known source for the Greymon55 pseudonym claims that rumors that AMD is not bringing one, but several models with 3D V-Cache memory for the AM4 are true and more information will be released this month. It is very likely that later systems of this type will be based on units already known to us, such as the Ryzen 5 5600X, Ryzen 9 5900X or Ryzen 9 5950X. Certainly, these modified processors will bring great benefits in terms of performance, especially in games.
It’s also possible that Reds plan to replace the budget Ryzen 4000 series with Ryzen 5000 systems with Zen 3 cores. Such a move would allow for effective lower-chip competition with Intel. It is undeniable that AMD is unparalleled in terms of long-term support. Finally, let’s remember that the AM4 platform debuted in 2016.
