AMD released Zen 3 “Refresh” (Zen 3+) codenamed “Warhol” before releasing Zen 4. 2021 will be a very awaiting year with the return of Intel when the company first changed its CPU architecture completely new after 5 generations (since the Skylake).
Although Rocket Lake Gen 11’s IPC is still 5-10% less than Zen 3, but by taking advantage of the 14nm process, it will have a high clock speed. As a result, the final performance can be equal to even higher than that of the Ryzen 5000.
Of course because it is still 14nm, the power consumption and temperature will still be very high similar to the 9th and 10th generation, which is also the reason why Gen 11 will only have a maximum of 8 cores 16 threads instead of maximum 10 cores. 20 threads like Gen 10.
According to the leak, it is possible that AMD will release Zen 3 “Refresh” (Zen 3+) codenamed “Warhol” before the release of Zen 4. It is possible that Zen 3+ will be using the new 7nm + or 6nm process to achieve higher clock speed.
However, after all the most desired by the current user after 2020 is the improved condition of goods so they can be easily bought at a better price.
