What is AMD Vermeer (You Must Know This!)



What is AMD Vermeer – AMD will use the 5000 series naming instead of the 4000 series naming for the upcoming Zen-3-based Vermeer processor series. This is something that makes a lot of sense considering AMD already has the Ryzen 4000 series on mobility (Renoir) and OEM desktops (also Renoir) so marketing the Vermeer as 4000 would also only be bad marketing. It would be much better to align the next generation of Desktop and Mobility parts under the 5000 Series banner.

For the 8 core parts, the three variants listed have clock speeds of up to 4.6 GHz. Interestingly, the base clock is set to 4.0 GHz – which is a pretty big number and should help in general speed and responsiveness in general use. One variant has a maximum turbo of 4.4 GHz and 3.8 base clock. This is where things get interesting, according to Patrick, these alleged 16 core sections are actually 12 core sections/24 threads. Both halves can be clocked up to 4.6 GHz and have a base clock of 3.7 GHz. All the OPNs mentioned have revision A0 which means you are looking at a very early engineering sample and will feature a unified L3 cache.

In case you were wondering, the main difference between Renoir for Desktop and Vermeer for Desktop is that the former is an APU platform whereas the latter is a CPU-only platform. Vermeer will not feature an iGPU and will of course be based on the Zen 3 core. The Renoir also represents an interesting experiment from AMD as it is their first venture into high-end APUs and perhaps why they are targeting the budget market first with the Zen 2 and the vega-based iGPU. The real cherry on the top for the ultra enthusiast and professional market will be the Zen 3 based Genesis Peak which will replace the current Thread Ripper series.
