This info comes from Igor’s Lab, whose sources reckon that Ryzen 4000 CPUs have reached ‘B0 stepping’ – a technical time period for a special revision of a processor – with that silicon prone to be the ultimate model, and therefore AMD’s prepared to start mass manufacturing of the completed merchandise.

Naturally, now we have to chuck in an enormous heap of salt with this one, provided that it’s simply chatter from the grapevine.

In different phrases, don’t get carried away, though it’s tough to not get a minimum of a little bit excited on the prospect that Ryzen 4000 desktop processors might be about to start out rolling off meeting strains.
It’s nonetheless not sure precisely when these CPUs may launch, however we’ve heard the potential of AMD unveiling the chips as early as September. In actuality, as to once they may really go on sale, it might be October, or certainly any of the closing months of 2020.
With mass manufacturing about to start out – probably – the chips may actually come sooner fairly than later, though even when the strains are cranked up, AMD might not essentially really feel a complete lot of strain to hurry Ryzen 4000 out the door (or a minimum of not your entire vary, as another rumor mongers appear to imagine that solely the high-end CPUs may arrive initially).
In any case, current Ryzen 3000 processors are a lot aggressive in comparison with Intel’s newest Comet Lake merchandise, and certainly now we have refreshed Ryzen 3000 ‘XT’ models because of debut very shortly.
With Intel’s Rocket Lake next-gen CPUs nonetheless a way off, and potentially launching in Q1 or Q2 of 2021 – and nonetheless constructed on 14nm (albeit with a brand new structure) – AMD appears to be very a lot within the driving seat, and gross sales of desktop merchandise clearly replicate this.
