That's a bad take to have.AMD have likely picked all the low hanging fruit that Jim Keller left them for Ryzen. I highly doubt they'll manage more than a 5-10% IPC increase again, before going to a new architecture. Hopefully I'm wrong though, their pace of innovation to this point (using Jim Keller's designs) have been refreshing.
Zen 3 is a major redesign and new product family just so that AMD could create new low hanging fruit to take care of for Zen 4.
This is one of the things Jim Keller actually instilled into AMD. The best way to see generational leaps is to design a new architecture, optimise it and repeat the process.
