AMD showcases its CPU/GPU Roadmap to RDNA 3 and Zen 4

AMD’s plans didn’t end with Zen 2 and RDNA. Moving forward, AMD has plans to not just compete, but lead. At their 2020 Financial Analyst Day, AMD has revealed both their CPU and GPU roadmaps for 2020-2022, revealing Zen 3, Zen 4, RDNA 2 and RDNA 3. 

For starters, AMD has confirmed that Zen 3 will release in 2020, that Zen 4 will be built on a 5nm process and that RDNA 3 is in the works. AMD plans to build the best products for gaming, supercomputing and home systems, requiring some major architectural changing moving forward.

Above, you will see a teaser for a future dual-fan RDNA graphics card, a gaming GPU that looks fairly similar to Nvidia’s RTX Founders Edition GPUs. AMD plans to adopt the latest process technologies aggressively, seek domain-specific architectural optimisations and deliver efficiency improvements with every generation.

In the future, AMD plans to take its multi-chip approach to new levels, detailing what they call an “X3D” packaging, utilising the benefits of both 2.5D and 3D packaging techniques. 

At this time it is unknown when AMD will create these super 3D chips, but it’s good to know that AMD is already investing in this technology.
