AMD Ryzen 4000 Zen 3 Vermeer desktop CPUs rumored to have 10-core offerings, custom boost and frequency tweaks

AMD has been toe-to-toe with Intel recently, and it seems to have no plans of slowing down. Intel recently announced its 11th Gen Tiger Lake CPUs, and AMD is readying its answer for it. We now have some details of the upcoming AMD Ryzen 4000 desktop CPUs, codenamed Vermeer, and based on Zen 3.

The leaks come from Twitter user and leaker 1usmus, who revealed the plans for AMD’s upcoming 4000 series desktop CPUs. Apparently, the details were found within the new AGESA 1.0.8.1 firmware update.

The most important information from this leak is that AMD Ryzen 4000 desktop CPUs could have a 10 core variant. This is a great move given that Intel didn’t introduce any 10-core options in Tiger Lake.

Additionally, the 10-core chip, if announced, could become the new flagship for AMD, and is likely to become the best performing consumer-grade AMD chip.

1usmus is claiming that the Zen 3 desktop chips will come with a Curve Optimizer, which will offer users a great deal of customizability with boost frequencies.Β 

Additionally, apparently these chips will also come with Infinity Fabric Dividers, which will let users play around with memory controllers to tweak frequencies. There are apparently a lot of references to this, but no information on the details of its functionality.

AMD has officially confirmed that the Ryzen 4000 series Vermeer desktop CPUs will arrive in 2020. That means we’ve got a window of only a few months to see if this leak comes true.
