CES 2019 is one of the biggest tech display events and even though it’s still months (January 2019), AMD has announced that it will showcase its next-gen CPUs and GPUs at the event. The company’s president and CEO, Dr Lisa Su will be hosting a keynote during the Consumer Electronics Show 2019 to announce the new chips that are based on a 7nm architecture and going by AMD’s release from last year, we are expecting the launch of the third generation of AMD Ryzen and AMD Threadripped processors that are built on a 7nm Zen 2 architecture, along with 7nm Vega GPUs.
AMD says that in 2019, the company will, “catapult computing, gaming, and visualization technologies forward with the world’s first 7nm high-performance CPUs and GPUs, providing the power required to reach technology’s next horizon.” The company might be able to introduce considerable improvement gains seeing how it was able to bring considerable improvements to its hardware with the 2nd Generation of Ryzen and Ryzen Threadripper chips last year. However, what’s more, interesting is the introduction of AMD Vega GPUs based on a 7nm architecture as we will get to know if they be able to take on Nvidia’s new Turing graphics cards.
AMD recently announced the availability of its Ryzen 5 2500X and AMD Ryzen 3 2300X processors for OEMs worldwide. The new models are aimed at helping OEMs and SI partners build configurations and customisations for customers who are looking for desktop PCs, and gaming solutions that can be bought off the shelf and even family PCs. Both the new Ryzen processors feature 4GHz Max Boost clock speeds using the Precision Boost 2 and XFR 2 algorithms that were introduced in the 2nd Gen Ryzen desktop processor line. They are built on the 12nm process and sport “Zen+” core architecture that the company says are nearly 8-10 percent faster in single and multi-threaded workloads than the previous generation.
