AMD Ryzen 4000 ‘Vermeer’ Zen 3 Desktop Processors Lineup Could Feature 10-core SKUs, new Curve Optimizer & Infinity Fabric Design

Recently we got some rumors fo new AMD’s Ryzen 4000 Desktop CPUs from 1usmus. Next-generation AMD’s Ryzen 4000 series Processors based on the Zen 3 core architecture might feature a few new flavors as reported by 1usmus. The 1usmus revealed some interesting new details for AMD’s next-gen Zen 3 architecture based desktop processors. AMD has not provided a launch date for Ryzen 4000 series processors yet.
As per the 1usmus, AMD Next-generation Ryzen series is based on the Zen3 series that might feature 10-core models. He reports that the information is confirmed within the new AGESA 1.0.8.1 firmware and that at least one AMD Ryzen 4000 processor with 10 cores is confirmed to be featured in the lineup.
This is an interesting choice since the 10 core AMD SKU will compete directly with Intel’s 10th Gen Intel Core processors( Core i9-10900K ). We could expect, for instance, 10 ( 5+5 ) Zen CCX configurations.
While Intel does have 10 core processors in its 14nm process technology and The 11th Generation lineup won’t feature any 10 core SKU but rather the maximum core count would be limited to 8 cores. We know so far, Rocket Lake-S processors will feature a new architecture but won’t feature higher core counts that the competing Ryzen 4000 CPUs will have to offer. 

AMD Zen3 to support “Curve Optimizer”

The 1usmus also share two interesting features that would come with Zen 3 based chips. The first feature is referred to as “Curve Optimizer” in AMD’s new series processors. The feature allows without any restriction users to configure the boost frequency of Ryzen processors and also allows users to customize the frequency of each core. It will be interesting to see how the CCX design for Zen 3 core architecture is handled within overclocking utilities and new motherboards.

AMD Zen3 to feature Infinity Fabric dividers

The second feature of the new AMD Zen 3 is the Infinity Fabric dividers which should provide more flexibility to memory controller frequency configurations, such as mixed mode.
As Yuri says, There are some mentions of this, but I do not know the mechanism. However, we might see even more updates related to the AMD Zen3 series in AGESA soon.
