In related news, AMD has confirmed that it is working on Zen 5 architecture. This is according to lead Zen architect Mike Clark who confirmed that he is working on Zen 5 mico-architecture while talking about AMD’s successful Ryzen processor family.

However, the upcoming Zen 5 architecture might skip the 5 nm altogether and will be based on 3nm process.

According to CEO of GlobalFoundries, he doesn’t think that 5 nm is going to be enough for the company to invest in it and 3 nm process will be required to get “full performance”. However, he didn’t confirm that the company will indeed skip the 5 nm in favor of 3 nm process.

As for its 7 nm Zen CPUs, AMD has confirmed 7nm+ Zen CPUs And next-gen GPUs for 2020 release.
