Entirely sensible and expected since it offers very significant gains across multiple fronts compared to the current iteration - and Intel competition. Well done again, AMD.

We can also see why Zen3 release might entirely reasonably get pushed into 2021...there's zero competition and Zen2 still kicks serious ass so yes, damn right we want to extend it's profitability. Note: this DOES NOT halt Zen4/5+ development-to-final whatsoever (TSMC+AMD can easily slot that in). Oh yes, AMD has RDNA2 running in parallel...and v3/4+ development too. Competition is good.
