AMD showed off its CPU roadmap. The first processors based on the Zen 3 architecture will ship towards the end of this year, these chips will be made on a 7nm process. The company did not specify which specific process from TSMC will be used for Zen 3. AMD also didn't really comment on whether it will use EUV for these products.
Next on the roadmap is Zen 4, this 5nm design is expected to hit the market in 2022. No specific date was mentioned but barring any delays, it will likely be in early 2022. The consumer version of Zen 3 is codenamed "Vermeer", there was no word yet about the Zen 4-based Ryzen part.
The Zen 4 based EPYC processor is codenamed "Genoa" and will power the upcoming El Capitan supercomputer.
