According to the Digitimes report, Intel still won't be shipping 10nm parts in volume this year, relying no the 14nm Rocket Lake architecture to carry it through most of 2021. Consequently, AMD doesn't have a competitive imperative to drop Zen 3 this year.Next month we'll see the arrival of AMD's Matisse Refresh so a delay of Zen 3 consumer chips to 2021 seems plausible. Where it gets a bit murky is the claim that AMD may be skipping the enhanced 7nm process node entirely, to launch Vermeer on TSMC's 5nm process. This contradicts an official AMD roadmap that was published earlier this month, so take it with a grain of salt.
AMD Zen 3 CPUs delayed to 2021 due to lack of competition?
