Although the temperature in many places in our country is currently high, it seems that the real heat will not reach the new technology industry until after the holidays. AMD itself is preparing for the premiere of Radeon 7000 graphics cards and Ryzen 7000 processors, and now there have been voices that the manufacturer is preparing a small surprise for us in the form of dedicated Zen 4 chips … for the older AM4 platform .
If AMD Zen 4 processors are already on the AM4 version, they will certainly be a natural choice for people who are already equipped with older motherboards.
As we know, the upcoming AMD Ryzen 7000 (Raphael) processors are designed for new AM5 motherboards that will only support DDR5 RAM. Popular leaker @greymon55, who has insight into AMD’s plans, reports that the manufacturer plans to release some Zen 4 chips as well on the older AM4 platform that supports well-known DDR4 bones. It’s too early to talk about specific products, but given the credibility of the leaker, we have a right to believe that something may have happened.

AMD has no intention of resigning from the AM4 socket. It is possible that more processors for this platform are already on their way
It should also be noted that Lisa Su herself said last month that AMD does not want to abandon the AM4 platform and in the future we can count on new products dedicated to this well-worn socket. At first, we thought the red was about updated Zen 3+ models, but who knows if the manufacturer is also considering a special edition Zen 4 that’s compatible with older technologies? If such systems did emerge, they certainly wouldn’t offer the same full Rafael units, but they would be a natural choice for people already equipped with an AM4 motherboard.
7700X is still not in the first lineup.
