Zen future

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Did AMD officialy confirmed that Zen3 will support current am4 motherboards?


In this news is stated that Zen2 and Zen3 is 7nm and we know that 100% Zen2 will be compatible with current AM4 boards so there is a big chance that Zen3 is also compatible.


From comment section:

"From what I've read, everything up to 2020 will be on AM4. So let's hope. I would love to be able to upgrade my PC without buying a new mobo, ram, etc. It's the smartest way to cell new CPUs, simply make it a viable/logical option to do so."

Yeah, for the sake of convenience.


But i doubt the White Haven is requiring another Socket, and the Raven Ridge, AMD APU

Mention me if you want to summon me sooner or later


My head on 2019 :

Note 10, S10, Samsung becomes Apple, Zen 2, 3700X, Renegade X lol

Well the socket might be the same, but the chipsets will likely change. It remains to be seen if the current chipsets will be updated to support newer cpu's. If it is as simple as a bios update and updated chipset drivers, then the chances are good.

it's wtf tech so take it with this grain of salt:



Though I can imagine that they keep am4 a longer time, the same way intel does it with their sockets: same socket, new chipset per chip generation
