AMD will release the Ryzen 3000 CPUs and Navi graphics cards at Computex

AMD’s executive director, Lisa Su, will deliver the inaugural conference at Computex in May, with big revelations that will revolve around the third-generation Ryzen processors and the next-generation AMD Navi graphics cards.

AMD will apparently share “new details” about these upcoming 7-nanometer (nm) products, as well as the company’s 7 nm Epyc CPUs for the use of heavyweights and data centers, although no specific details of what we are going to have been mentioned. to see exactly.

His in turn said enthusiastically: “It is an honor for me to deliver this year’s keynote address and offer new insights into the next generation of AMD’s high-performance platforms and products.”

The opening speech will be delivered at the press conference prior to the fair on Monday, May 27 at 10:00 am, Taiwan time (3:00 am GMT, 10:00 pm ET on May 26).

Available in July?

Previously, we have heard that the new Navi graphics cards (with the most affordable models and expected to be released first, instead of the high-end GPUs) will be presented at Computex before they go on sale and are released at the beginning. July, possibly July 7.

That date could make sense from a marketing perspective, because 7/7 would be a nod to the 7nm technology used in these new AMD chips.

This new revelation is related to the previous rumor, which speculated that the Ryzen 3000 CPUs could also go on sale at that moment – with a 7/7 that possibly also refers to a double launch of 7nm CPUs and GPUs. new generation-, but all this remains, of course, a very large speculation.

In fact, we’ve also heard that Navi graphics cards will not come out until October, but again, that’s just a rumor based on some of the production difficulties that AMD was experiencing earlier this year.

However, AMD can not afford a long delay, since Nvidia is busy moving forward with its new and affordable Turing graphics cards , with another lightning-free pattern that is supposed to debut shortly in the form of the GeForce GTX 1650 (and potentially also with a GTX 1650 Ti).

AMD Ryzen 3000: What we know so far

This is what we already know about the CPUs of the Ryzen 3000 series. Ryzen 3000 is based on the Zen 2 architecture. The original Zen architecture was the basis of the first generation of Ryzen processors. Zen + was an incremental improvement over the original Zen architecture, and is what gave rise to the Ryzen 2000 processor series launched last year.

The Zen 2 architecture is very different, since it is a completely new iteration with great changes. The size of the matrix has been reduced from 12nm from Zen + to 7nm , and this is not just a rumor. This will make the Ryzen 3rd generation desktop processors the first CPUs to be built in the 7nm process node. AMD Ryzen 3000 will also be the first desktop processor to support PCIe 4.0 x16 from the first moment. However, it is important to keep in mind that, for the moment, this will only affect storage systems and not graphics cards.

AMD is looking to increase the IPC (instruction by clock), clock speeds and counting cores with the Ryzen 3000 series, while reducing its power consumption. The company is already ahead of Intel in counting consumer cores and multi-thread performance at this time, but its goal with the Ryzen 3000 series processors is to compete or even beat Intel in the performance department of a single core, while maintaining the extremely competitive price that has made Ryzen CPUs so popular.

We know for sure that the CPUs of the Ryzen 3000 series will have at least the same subcategories of processors, that is, Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7. There is also much speculation with the Ryzen 9 processors, which will compete with the Intel Core i9 processor 9900K in single-core performance, although they comfortably outperform Intel’s current star processor in number of cores and multi-threaded performance.

Lisa Su, CEO of AMD, confirmed that the firm is looking for an approximate launch date in mid-2019. In addition, at CES 2019, AMD showed an engineering sample of a 16-core, 8-core Zen 2 processor that exceeded to the Intel i9 9900K in a Cinebench R15 multi-core execution. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of this sample was that it was successful at consuming 47 watts less than Intel’s flagship processor. To ensure fair competition, AMD made it clear that both processors had been cooled using the Noctua NH-D15S refrigerator, leaving no possibility of thermal throttling in the Core i9 9900K.

Unfortunately, this is all the irrefutable information we have about the Ryzen 3000 processors. Everything else beyond this is based on leaks and rumors.
