Later in 2022 AMD will be releasing its 7000 series 5 nm ‘Zen4’ architecture, which anticipates high-performance computing for all users. The new series will boast a 5.5GHz speed that was presented and demoed during a recent event. The release for public usable DDR5 and PCI Express 5.0 is being a possible focus for the later renditions. The AM5 platform has three levels of motherboards: X670 Extreme, X670, and B650. The AM5 platform has a 1718-pin LGA design with support for 170 W TDP processors, dual-channel DDR5 memory, and a new SVI3 power infrastructure.
The motherboard manufacturers should be anticipating the new designs and looking to produce the newer architecture and we may see a change in the availability in DDR3 to almost non-existent and the DDR4 will have a price shift, depending on the production capacity of the equipment that is available and the supplies needed to produce them.
Be ready to see a change in graphics card designs as well from this new tech. It may not directly change the design but the power usage and availability from the motherboards are going to make a new power sending unit (PSU) a priority to evolve. Modularity may have to become the standard for us to focus on.
