The second Socket AM5 generation is said to follow similar core layouts as existing Ryzen chips.

According to both PC Games Hardware (pcgameshardware.de) and YouTube channel Moore’s Law is Dead, AMD’s upcoming “Granite Ridge” Ryzen 8000 processors are set to continue offering the same amount of core counts ranging from 6 to 16 cores (codenamed “Nirvana”) per chip. The CCDs, which is likely also containing 8 cores per physical die has another codename called “Eldora”.

According to PCGH’s sources, most of the uncore features seem to retain over, with the new chips set to feature the same 65W-class SKUs as well as high-performance 170W-class SKUs. The cache configuration remains the same too, with L3 cache maxed out at 64MB (not counting X3D models) and 16MB of L2 cache. It’s also said to be manufactured under TSMC’s N3E or N3P process, however there seems to be conflicting information so take this with a fair amount of salt at disposal.

Meanwhile, MLID posted a timeline of release roadmap of upcoming AMD processor lineup. Socket AM5 will see just one direct successor over Zen 4 ‘Raphael’, with the Granite Ridge set to launch somewhere in between late Q1 2024 and Q1 2025 (specific timeframe may be dependent on TSMC’s production availability, as 3nm are mostly taken by Apple during initial production). Zen 5 as a whole will first be featured on mainstream server Socket SP5 with the new ‘Turin’ family of CPUs, set for early Q1 2024 release.

Pokdepinion: Given the early rumors of potentially a hybrid architecture, this sounds a bit underwhelming so far. We’ll see – there’s still a year to go.
