“Warhol” has apparently been leaked as the codename for AMD’s Ryzen 5000 series of mainstream desktop CPUs. According to the leak, Warhol will feature Zen 3-based parts utilizing a 7nm manufacturing process and offering PCIe4 support. The series would seemingly slot between Vermeer and Raphael in AMD’s roadmap.

There have been some interesting AMD-related leaks lately, including a potential roadmap for Team Red and a rumor about the company using a 5nm process for the Ryzen 4000 desktop CPUs (“Vermeer”). However, if the latest leak is accurate it would pour cold water over the idea that AMD and TSMC are gearing up to offer 5nm Ryzen 4000 processors.

Obviously, like all leaks this has to be taken with a healthy amount of skepticism. The source is from a Twitter account for MebiuW and features an alleged screenshot of an AMD roadmap (the relevant tweet has now been deleted). The image (see below) mentions Warhol along with the Zen 3, 7nm, and PCIe4 details stated above. It’s clear to see the next portion likely refers to “Raphael”.

Placed in tandem with the roadmap of AMD parts, this would put Ryzen 5000 Warhol neatly between Ryzen 4000 Vermeer and Ryzen 6000 Raphael. In another tweet, MebiuW has reiterated that Warhol is Zen 3/7nm while Raphael will be Zen 4/5nm based. Interestingly enough, the letters “Nav” can be seen in the Raphael box, which could indicate that Ryzen 6000 mainstream desktop processors may feature a Navi-based iGPU.

With Vermeer planned for 2020 and the somewhat potentially intimidating Ryzen 6000 Raphael series possibly penciled in for 2022, this would leave 2021 as the convenient timeframe for AMD to launch the Ryzen 5000 Warhol series. “Warhol” is named after the artist Andy Warhol, who is renowned for his pop art paintings such as the Marilyn Diptych and Campbell's Soup Cans.
