The fate of socket AM4 is more than decided but when that happens has yet to be finalized as AMD could potentially extend Ryzen 5000 via new X3D CPUs in the coming month.
It's been rumored in the last few days that there will be several new products for ZEN3D. It's true, and there will be further information next month.

Credible leaker Greymon55 is reporting that AMD may be producing more Zen3D SKUs which uses 3D Vertical Cache (V-Cache) and has shown excellent potential when it comes to games, easily tying the flagship Intel Core i9-12900K in gaming performance.
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is the sole Zen3D product out right now but AMD has previously shown a 12-core variant in most of their prior demos for Zen3D. That said, AMD could still be holding on yield of higher-performing SKUs like a Ryzen 9 5900X3D or a 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X3D and also down the line for Ryzen 5 5600X3D where they would make more sense.
This should potentially offset a shortage with Zen4 yields or if AMD plans to only release upper-end Zen4 products in the meantime as TSMC improves their 5nm yield.
