AMD Ryzen 4000 Zen 3 processors remain on track for a Q3 2020 release, a company spokesperson has confirmed. The confirmation quashes a rumour to the contrary, which stated that AMD might have delayed the release of its Vermeer processors until Intel announces its Comet Lake-S architecture.

AMD's next-generation desktop processors have not been delayed, contrary to previous speculation about the matter. The rumour seems to have originated from DigiTimes, which claimed that AMD's Zen 3 "Vermeer" desktop processors might have been delayed until 2021 because of a perceived lack of competition with Intel. Instead, DigiTimes stated that AMD had postponed announcing its next-generation desktop processors until Intel released its Comet Lake-S architecture.

According to an AMD spokesperson, "the rumor on Zen 3 delay is inaccurate". The clarification was offered during a call by AMD's client-segment product managers, to which TechPowerUp claims to have been privy.

AMD apparently expanded upon this point further too, with TechPowerUp stating that "information about "Zen 3" launching in 2020 is not under embargo". So, Zen 3 desktop processors remain on track for a September 2020 release. The Vermeer architecture is expected to offer between 15-17% IPC gains and will support B450 and X470 motherboards.
