Based on AMD Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 (Vermeer) The processor belongs to Best CPU In the current market. However, this chip maker seems to have excess Zen 2 chips as new chips. USB-IF list (by Komachi_Tosaka) Three unreleased Zen 2 processors have been exposed.
The A1 version of Athlon Gold 4100GE, Ryzen 5 4500 and Ryzen 3 4100 processors were mentioned in the submission. We are not sure whether these three AMD chips use Zen 2 cores. Because AMD uses the Ryzen 5000 brand for Zen 3 products, it is unrealistic to think that chip manufacturers will use Zen 3 in addition to the name.
Given the model name, the unreleased AMD processor may be an updated version of its Ryzen 3000 equivalent. The processor may also be a special SKU of the OEM, and we know that AMD likes to produce custom chips for its partners.
Starting from Athlon Gold 4100GE, this processor may be a successor to Athlon Gold 3150GE (OEM APU). AMD’s Athlon Gold SKU has an integrated Vega graphics solution, so Athlon Gold 4100GE is no exception. Although we don’t know the core number or clock speed of the APU, the GE name tells us that the Athlon Gold 4100GE is limited to 35W TDP (Thermal Design Power).
On the other hand, it is reasonable to assume that Ryzen 5 4500 and Ryzen 3 4100 are the direct successors of Ryzen 5 4500 Ryzen 5 3500 with Ryzen 3 3100, Respectively. For reference, Ryzen 3 3500 is a six-core chip, while Ryzen 3 3100 is a quad-core part. Both have Zen 2 cores, adhere to 65W TDP and lack integrated graphics. We suspect that Ryzen 5 4500 and Ryzen 3 4100 will inherit most of the features of their predecessors, but may have higher clock speeds.
It is not clear when AMD submitted the entries to the USB-IF, but it is enough to prove that the chip manufacturer has prepared these three processors. Perhaps the chip manufacturer will launch them silently soon, but only time will tell.
