AMD at this time has introduced that they are going to be making a pair of shopper product shows in October. The chipmaker, who has been pretty quiet for the reason that spring, will likely be holding occasions for each their shopper Ryzen CPU and Radeon GPU product segments. Dubbing the occasions “A New Journey Begins”, the corporate will likely be asserting the primary merchandise based mostly on their eagerly anticipated Zen Three CPU structure and RDNA 2 GPU structure.
Main the cost will likely be AMD’s CPU division. On October 8th at midday Jap, the corporate will likely be presenting their Zen 3-based Ryzen desktop processors. AMD’s CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, will likely be among the many presenters.
Following that up slightly below Three weeks later will likely be AMD’s Radeon presentation, which once more is at midday Jap. There the corporate will likely be displaying off its first merchandise based mostly on the corporate’s forthcoming RDNA 2 GPU structure. In the meantime, tipping their hand a bit early on naming, AMD has confirmed that this will likely be known as the Radeon RX 6000 collection.
AMD hasn’t disclosed every other particulars about these occasions presently, however over the past a number of months the producer has shared bits and items of knowledge regarding its upcoming chip architectures. Primarily based on AMD’s roadmaps, Ryzen Zen Three processors will likely be constructed on an improved model of TSMC’s 7nm course of, most definitely TSMC’s N7P course of given AMD’s feedback clarifying that they aren’t committing to EUV for 7nm. In any other case, for the second AMD is remaining tight-lipped on the Zen Three structure itself, although provided that AMD isn’t going to get the advantages of a full node shrink, we’re anticipating Zen Three to ship some fascinating and significant architectural enhancements over Zen 2.
In the meantime on the graphics entrance, AMD and companions have beforehand confirmed that RDNA 2 will likely be a DirectX 12 Final (characteristic degree 12_2) compliant GPU structure, that means that AMD will likely be making important adjustments to the graphics facet of their GPU designs. The Navi 2x household of GPUs will acquire help for ray tracing, variable charge shading, and different options that may put AMD’s new GPUs at parity with the competitors, each for consoles and PCs. In the meantime from a efficiency standpoint, AMD is aiming for a hefty 50% bounce in performance-per-watt, which might probably eradicate the effectivity hole with NVIDIA. As nicely, the corporate has beforehand promised a high-end “top-of-stack” GPU for 4K gaming, so we’re anticipating some formidable efficiency targets from AMD.
Be sure you verify in on October 8th and October 28th for extra particulars on AMD’s subsequent era of shopper elements!
