AMD 600 series motherboards first exposed: with four generations of desktop Ryzen

The interface of the AMD Ryzen processor has always been the same, but every generation of chipset motherboards is bringing new features. For example, the X570 first supports PCIe 4.0, and the new B550 and A520 motherboards for the mainstream and entry-level markets are not far away.
The X570 chipset was built by AMD himself. The previous 300 series, 400 series, B550, and A520 all came from ASMedia. According to the latest news, Xiangshuo has also placed orders for AMD 600 series chipsets.

This is the first time I heard about the AMD 600 series chipset, but without any specific details, it will be used with a fourth-generation desktop Ryzen 4000 series processor if no accident.

It is reported that the AMD 600 series chipset is planned to be released at the end of 2020.

This means that the fourth-generation desktop Ryzen will not be available until the end of this year. The first generation is later than the first: the first generation was released in March 2017, the second generation was released in April 2018, and the third generation was released in July 2019.
Taking into account the strong performance of Ryzen in recent years, Intel can hardly come back for a while. AMD can completely control the release rhythm according to its own wishes and market conditions, including appropriately extending the life cycle of each generation.
The fourth-generation desktop Ryzen codename is Vermeer, which basically uses the Zen 3 CPU architecture and is manufactured using 7nm + technology, and the interface will definitely continue to be AM4 (next year or will support DDR5 and change the interface).
Which also means that the old and new platforms are still compatible. , 600 series motherboards can be equipped with old processors, old motherboards can also be equipped with four generations of Ryzen.
In addition, Xiangshuo is still developing USB 3.2 Gen2x2 and USB4 master controllers, which will be put into commercial use this year. It is also likely to be adopted by the AMD platform.
AMD's top graphics cards embody: RX5950XT, RX5950, RX5900, RX5800XT
AMD RDNA architecture and Navi core graphics cards have successively released the RX 5700, RX 5600, and RX 5500 series, but they are all concentrated in the mainstream market and still lack competitiveness at the high end.
With the possibility that NVIDIA will announce the next-generation Ampere GPU core in March, AMD is facing increasing pressure, and it is even said that AMD has transferred experts from the Zen design team to help GPU research and development. 
At the CES 2020 conference, Su Zifeng also revealed that AMD will have a high-performance Navi graphics card that supports ray tracing this year, which may be the previously rumoured core Navi 12.
According to foreign media, the unknown graphics card manufacturer AFOX recently submitted a series of new AMD graphics card models to the ECC (Eurasian Economic Commission), including RX 5950 XT, RX 5950, RX 5900, and RX 5800XT. There are higher-end products.

In fact, this is not the first time we have seen these names. As early as last June, Sapphire submitted a large number of AMD graphics models in ECC. In addition to the above, there are RX 5900 XT, RX 5850 XT, RX 5850, RX 5800, RX 5750 XT, RX 5750, RX 5650 XT, RX 5650, RX 5550 XT, RX 5550.
However, it is not normal for so many models to be concentrated. According to AMD ’s consistent style, it is impossible to have so many versions of the same generation of products, and the graphics card manufacturers announce their product names will have their own naming method. , So it looks more like a placeholder behaviour.
In any case, AMD's top graphics card is not too far away.
