    We once had Phenom II. Released with DDR2 and DDR3 support for certain models. Ryzen could very well bridge once again.
    I am thinking we will have another compatible AM4 release. It may be bridged, but we will have another.

    I'm not sure that's going to happen. To my recollection, all Phenom II chips were designed from the very beginning to support DDR2 and DDR3. I think it's more likely AMD will release a DDR4 and a separate DDR5 version of mostly the same CPU, especially since socket AM4 is nearing EOL.
