AMD Ryzen 4000: Everything you need to know

[2019.11.13, Wed 15:05] The first Ryzen 4000 CPUs will almost certainly be laptop processors built around the Zen 2 architecture at the heart of AMD's Ryzen 3000 desktop CPUs. AMD hasn't announced any models or pricing information yet, but we would expect a similar makeup to the current Ryzen 3000 series, with CPUs ranging in price from $100 APUs, all the way up to around $750 for the most heavily capable multi-threaded CPUs. Ryzen 4000 series CPUs, like Ryzen 3000 before them, will use a combination of two architectures throughout the range. The new Ryzen 4000 mobile CPUs will leverage the existing Zen 2 architecture that combines a 12nm I/O chip with 7nm CPU and GPU chiplets to form the overall APU. Ryzen 4000 desktop processors will use the upcoming Zen 3 architecture, which makes further refinements on the design. Zen 2 on Ryzen 4000 mobile chips will be a major upgrade over existing Ryzen 3000 mobile APUs based on the Zen+ design. The Ryzen 4000 mobile CPUs should see a significant performance uplift over their Ryzen 3000 counterparts. That's meant that those who bought first generation Ryzen CPUs and motherboards, have been able to upgrade their processors without the need to buy a new motherboard - they just need to update the BIOS. That will be the case with Zen 3 Ryzen 4000 processors too, though this will be the last generation of Ryzen chips to use the AM4 socket.
