Today at CES 2019, AMD President and CEO Lisa Su is expected to bring 7nm to the masses with the third-generation Ryzen 3000 family of processors based on 7nm Zen 2 architecture. The keynote starts at 12PM EST and can be viewed live below:
We have seen leaks regarding these processors heat up over the past few weeks, and it's expected that the family will expand to include a new Ryzen 9 tier. At the low-end, there will reportedly be Ryzen 3 3300, 3300X and 3300G SKUs ranging from $99 to $129. AMD will also allegedly launch Ryzen 5 3600 Series and Ryzen 7 3700 Series processors, with Ryzen 7 parts expected to make the jump from 8 physical cores to 12 cores/24 threads.
However, the big news is expected with the rumored Ryzen 9 3800X and Ryzen 9 3850X, both of which could include 16 physical cores and 32 threads. The latter is rumored to have a base clock of 4.3GHz and a boost clock of 5.1GHz while operating in a 135W TDP.
On the GPU side of things, we may hear about consumer graphics cards based on 7nm Vega architecture. AMD recently filed a trademark for a Radeon Vega II logo, which will no doubt be plastered all over the retail boxes for next-generation gaming cards.
Of course, all of the above info is rumored at the moment, so stay tuned for the full details in less than two hours.
