AMD CEO Lisa Su shared during the company’s second quarter earnings that many of its anticipated product launches are still to release in 2020. It consists of a 7nm processor based on the Zen3 architecture and its RDNA 2 (or “Big Navi”). Graphics card. Su also shared that AMD has begun initial production and shipment of the next gen-only console for the PS5 and Xbox Series X. Both consoles are scheduled to release this holiday.
This is all good news for those hoping to upgrade their PCs with upcoming AMD parts, or for those wanting to buy a new console later this year. But this is unfortunate for Intel, which recently had some major product roadmap failures. Intel announced that it was starting an already delayed 7nm process for its CPU by 2022. Intel’s hardware chief, Drs. Venkat “Murthy” Renduchintala is also leaving the company in August.
Su shared that part of AMD’s success this past quarter came from its Ryzen 4000 mobile processor, a growing number of very good laptops that, for the most part, provide a lot of power and solid battery life for the money. We do. In fact, the revenue derived from these processors is reported to be “faster than any mobile processor in our history”, so they are making an assumption with people who are shopping for laptops – those who are gaming or Are made for otherwise.
AMD still expects uncertainty throughout the year due to the remaining COVID-19 epidemic. But at least until now, the company’s more exciting consumer-focused launches are still on track.
