Since the seventh generation of APU, amd has always insisted on using AM4 as a packaging interface, as is the case with the first, second and third generation of sharp dragon, which provides excellent compatibility. The old motherboard can brush a BIOS to get a new generation of processor.
Under the road map, the AMD will next introduce a Zen 3 architecture IPC performance is expected to increase by 15%, while a single CCX module from 4 to 8 cores, a unified deployment of 32 MB three levels of cache, and the use of optimized and upgraded 7 processes, the corresponding Ruilong 4000 series desktop processors are expected to be on the scene around September this year.
Amd has promised that the AM4 interface will last at least until 2020, so will the sharp dragon 4000 desktop processor remain unchanged?
German notebook brand xMg confirmed when introducing new products,The b450 chipset can be compatible with the sharp dragon 4000 series desktop processor only by updating the isomorphic microcode, and the AM4 interface will fight another generation!
Of course, except for b450,The existing x570, x470 and even older x370 can support the sharp dragon 4000 series, but it's hard to say whether the early mainstream B350 still supports it. Theoretically, it's OK, but it may depend on the wishes of the motherboard manufacturers.
In addition, the b550 motherboard is also expected to be released in the next few weeks. Compared with b450, it will increase the support for PCIe 4.0, which is conducive to promoting the popularity of PCIe 4.0 SSD. At the same time, it will go further in USB and overclocking.
In the more distant future, amd has also prepared the Zen 4 architecture and will use the 5nm process for manufacturing. It is expected to launch at the end of 2021 as soon as possible. At that time, it is likely to support ddr5 memory or even PCIe 5.0, and the interface will finally be changed.
