According to latest report at Chinatimes, Intel has already reached an agreement with TSMC wherein the latter will reserve a significant chunk of its upcoming 6nm capacity for the former.
Twitter user MebiuW posted a picture appears to be from some kind of an internal roadmap of upcoming AMD processors. It seems that code name “Warhol” for the upcoming AMD Ryzen 5000 series Zen3 processors, and code name “Raphael” for the upcoming AMD Ryzen 6000 series Zen4 processors.
Along with AMD Ryzen 3000 “XT” series coming next month, AMD will also release Ryzen 4000 “Vermeer” series CPUs in Q4 of 2020. According to latest rumors, Ryzen 4000 “Vermeer” series CPUs will feature with TSMC’s 5nm plus node instead of 7nm EUV fabrication node.
We already know that AMD Zen 3 CPUs based on TSMC’s 7nm+ process node are on track for launch likely during the second half of 2020. Recently, TSMC is already progressing nicely with its next-generation 5nm process node. So this means AMD Zen 4 CPUs are likely released in 2021.
