AMD will launch the successors to its Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processors by the end of next year. This is according to a rumor shared by @sepeuwmjh, who previously leaked a portion of red team’s roadmap and believes that the first Zen 4-based desktop CPUs will be released in Q4 2022. Code named “Raphael,” AMD’s Ryzen 6000 Series will leverage TSMC’s 5 nm process technology for what is rumored to be substantial IPC gains in the region of 29 percent. These CPUs are also expected to feature an integrated Navi2 GPU.

While the existence of Warhol and Raphael has never been confirmed by AMD, they have been mentioned by multiple parties (media and leakers) either directly or through their own contacts. While both codenames allegedly do appear on a roadmap, it is still unclear if AMD introduced changes to those roadmaps. After all, as we know the original roadmap slide originated in early 2020.
