The AMD Zen architecture, which has given the PC market a lot of surprises in recent years, began in 2016, when AMD revealed many new architecture details and announced the new Ryzen brand at the end of the year. After introducing more cores and improving the efficiency of the architecture, Ryzen processors give the PC processor market more choices. AMD recently uploaded a new video. Marketing Chief John Taylor and Technical Marketing Director Robert Hallock not only celebrated the 5th anniversary of the launch of the Ryzen brand, but also revealed the development of new products.
Although Robert Hallock did not directly mention the development of the Zen4 architecture processor and AM5 platform, he confirmed that AMD will switch to a new platform in 2022 and support DDR5 memory. He also confirmed that the new generation platform will have better heat dissipation than the existing AM4 platform. Equipment compatibility.
Robert Hallock also responded to the rumors that the Zen4 architecture processor codenamed Raphael may only support the PCIe Gen4 standard, saying that the leak map only lists the PCIe Gen4 standard.

It is rumored that it will be the last product of the AM4 platform, marking a perfect end to the AM4 socket that has been in use for several years.
