Yesterday there was news about a new B2 revision of some of AMD's Vermeer-based processors. Speculation arose about a possible refresh of the current Ryzen 5000 lineup. Usually, companies don't comment on these sorts of rumors but AMD quickly dispelled the news.

In a statement to Polish tech site, an AMD representative clarified that Vermeer chips with B2 stepping offer the same performance and feature set as the current models. AMD explains it's merely an improvement in terms of production and logistics capabilities. The company doesn't go into details about what is different, but adds that the Ryzen 5000 series will gradually move to B2 stepping over the next six months.
As part of our continued effort to expand our manufacturing and logistics capabilities, AMD will gradually move AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors to B2 Revision over the next 6 months. The revision does not bring improvements in terms of functionality or performance, furthermore, no BIOS update will be required. — AMD spokesperson to
There is no news about a possible refresh of the Ryzen 5000 series CPUs.
