Gigabyte expects AMD to launch next-generation Ryzen processors later this year 

As part of a press release for their socket AM5-based E133-C10 and R133-C10 servers, Gigabyte has claimed that “next-generation” Ryzen desktop processors are due to launching “later this year”. 

Currently, it is unknown what these new Ryzen processors will look like, be it refreshed Zen 4 processors or all-new Zen 5 CPUs. The term “next-generation”, implies that AMD’s upcoming CPUs are based on AMD’s Zen 5 CPU architecture, though this has not been confirmed. 

Below is what Gigabyte had to say in their press release.

    Support for Future Generations of Processors

Even though these new products are entry-level servers, CPU support does not end here and the AM5 platform is supported until at least 2025. The next generation of AMD Ryzen desktop processors that will come out later this year will also be supported on this AM5 platform, so customers who purchase these servers today have the opportunity to upgrade to the Ryzen 7000 series successor.  

Gigabyte claims that

Today, competition is running hot between AMD and Intel within the x86 CPU market, with AMD delivering strong performance with their Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 series CPUs, Intel delivering a strong counter with their 13th Generation Raptor Lake CPUs, and AMD following up with their V-Cache enhanced Ryzen 7000 X3D processors.

Rumour has it that Intel are planning to release refreshed Raptor Lake series CPUs later this year, and Gigabyte’s latest press release claims that AMD will have something fresh coming in the second half of 2023. If Gigabyte is to be believed, AMD have next-generation CPUs on the horizon.
