AMD Has Launched Whopping 145 CPUs & APUs For AM4 Platform

Expert Verified By

AM4 Going Strong Since 2016!

Story Highlight
  • AMD unveils Ryzen 9000 Series with Zen 5 architecture and expands AM5 to 38 CPU/APU models.
  • At the same time, AMD is supporting AM4 with new models.
  • The legacy AM4 platform has now received over 145 CPUs and APUs combined.

As AMD’s technical marketing manager Donny Woligroski stated, the company will continue to support the AM4 platform until the cost of manufacturing DDR4 memory becomes more than that of DDR5.

Users should remain confident regarding any concerns about the support AMD will provide for the AM4 platform. Following recent leaks, the Red Team just announced two new CPUs based on AM4 at CES this year.

The AM4 platform, which first debuted in 2016, is now a lineup of 145 CPUs and APUs from the company. This highlights the Red Team’s commitment to longevity and supporting the existing user base.

Why it matters: Unlike Intel, which typically moves on from one platform in two generations, Team Red is staying true to its promise of an extended platform.


In July, the Ryzen 9 5900 XT processor, which has 16 cores, 32 threads, and a maximum boost clock speed of 4.8GHz, will be available for $359. The Ryzen 7 5800 XT, on the other hand, will feature a total of 8 cores, 16 threads, and a maximum boost frequency of 4.8GHz.

The Ryzen 7 5800XT is set to launch for $249. Moreover, AMD also announced the much-anticipated Zen 5 architecture at Computex 2024. The AMD Ryzen 9000 series is set to become the gaming CPU series of choice for upcoming PC builds.

Zen 5 offers a 16% IPC performance boost over Zen 4. AMD has unveiled four models as expected, announcing the Ryzen 9 9950X with 16 cores and 32 threads as the flagship of the series.

Meanwhile, the Ryzen 9 9900X, the Ryzen 7 9700X, and the Ryzen 5 9600X are also being released, offering similar options as the Ryzen 7000 series.

Following an incredibly successful run with AM4, AM5 is set to expand further. The company has promised support till 2027, with the platform currently offering 38 CPU and APU models to date.

Moving on to the next generation, the company will carefully consider when to switch platforms. For now, PC gamers can rest easy and anticipate the future generation of Ryzen gaming processors.
