At CES 2019 exhibition in January, AMD intends to present three new types of products: the Ryzen 3000-series CPUs and APUs, as well as the consumer graphics cards based on the Vega architecture. We remind you that earlier Advanced Micro Devices announced the presentation of the Executive Director Lisa Su (Lisa Su), who will provide details about the upcoming 7nm solutions.
The new AMD graphics cards, according to rumors wandering around the web, should be the Radeon Vega II. It is the latest project of ex-CEO of Radeon Technologies Group Mike Rayfield and will be built on the basis of 7nm graphics processor Vega 20. Note that this GPU was originally planned to be used only in professional accelerators.
For the AMD Ryzen 3000 Series APUs, there have been quite a few leaks lately. Mobile solutions that combine up to four x86 cores (probably on a 12-nm Zen + architecture) and a Radeon Vega graphics module will debut first on the market. Preliminary technical characteristics of the new products are given in the table below.
As for the new generation of central processing units, not much is known about them at the moment. The recent announcement of the second-generation AMD EPYC server chips spawned many rumors and conjectures about their desktop counterparts.
With confidence, we can talk about the transition to the 7nm process technology and Zen 2 architecture, as well as the AM4 design. Let us hope that at CES 2019 we will have at least a “paper” announcement of AMD AMD Ryzen 3000-series CPUs.
