AMD Multi-Generational Roadmap Includes AMD Zen 2, Zen 3

It seems that the current generation of AMD Ryzen CPUs are not the only thing that AMD has plans for. Lisa Su talked about a multi-generational roadmap where she mentioned AMD Zen 2 and Zen 3. Currently, we know of AMD Zen+ that is already on the roadmap and we do not know whether Zen+ and AMD Zen 2 are the same or two different things altogether.

This does mean that there will be two variants of AMD Zen coming out in the future. It will be interesting to see if these will be optimized versions of the upcoming AMD Ryzen CPU architecture or something new entirely. My bet is that AMD Zen 2 and Zen 3 will be revised versions of what we are going to see next month. AMD Zen 2 could provide better overclocking and optimization in the future.

What this tells us is that AMD has a plan for AMD Ryzen and this will last for years to come. AMD Already talked about how the AM4 platform will be relevant till 2020, so this could be one of the reasons why that is so.

It is possible that chips coming out with AMD Zen 2 and Zen 3 will also be compatible with the AM4 platform. Looking at how this platform will be coming out soon, it is unlikely that AMD is going to change the CPU socket so soon.

Intel has said that AMD Ryzen will not be a threat for the company and that Kaby Lake will be enough to take on the upcoming CPUs from AMD.

That may be what Intel thinks but I am sure there are other people like me that think the exact opposite. But with only a few days to go until the launch of AMD Ryzen, we will see once and for all.
