However, due to the new corona virus pandemic, the organizers have postponed the opening of Comptex 2020 until September this year, and there are even rumors that the 40th edition of the show may be cancelled.
Even so, the source insists amd will release the Ryzen 4000 Series desktop CPU product line based on the Zen 3 architecture in August-September, with TSMC’s enhanced 7nm process.
This may be the last generation of Ryzen series CPUs compatible with AM4 motherboard slots, according to AMD’s long-standing commitment. While compatible with some older motherboards( some features are limited), the new 600 Series chipset is expected.
Rival Intel, meanwhile, is preparing to release the 10th generation Comet Lake-S desktop processor and the matching 400 series chipset in the event of the end of April.
This date coincides with the previously proposed potential release date of April 30, with the high-end Z490 Series motherboard arriving in mid-May and the budget-grade H470/B460 motherboard waiting until late May.
