AMD right this moment has introduced that they are going to be making a pair of client product displays in October. The chipmaker, who has been pretty quiet for the reason that spring, can be holding occasions for each their client Ryzen CPU and Radeon GPU product segments. Dubbing the occasions “A New Journey Begins”, the corporate can be asserting the primary merchandise based mostly on their eagerly anticipated Zen Three CPU structure and RDNA 2 GPU structure.
Main the cost can be AMD’s CPU division. On October 8th at midday Jap, the corporate can be presenting their Zen 3-based Ryzen desktop processors. AMD’s CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, can be among the many presenters.
Following that up just below Three weeks later can be AMD’s Radeon presentation, which once more is at midday Jap. There the corporate can be exhibiting 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 can be known as the Radeon RX 6000 collection.
AMD hasn’t disclosed some other particulars about these occasions presently, however during the last a number of months the producer has shared bits and items of knowledge regarding its upcoming chip architectures. Based mostly on AMD’s roadmaps, Ryzen Zen Three processors can be constructed on an improved model of TSMC’s 7nm course of, more than likely TSMC’s N7P course of given AMD’s comments 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 can be a DirectX 12 Ultimate (function degree 12_2) compliant GPU structure, which means that AMD can be making vital adjustments to the graphics facet of their GPU designs. The Navi 2x household of GPUs will acquire assist for ray tracing, variable charge shading, and different options that can 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% jump in performance-per-watt, which might doubtlessly remove the effectivity hole with NVIDIA. As properly, the corporate has beforehand promised a high-end “top-of-stack” GPU for 4K gaming, so we’re anticipating some formidable efficiency objectives from AMD.
Make sure you test in on October 8th and October 28th for extra particulars on AMD’s subsequent technology of client elements!
