Watch AMD CEO Lisa Su's CES 2019 Keynote Here, 7nm Ryzen 3000 And Radeon Vega II Expected

AMD Zen
We've been hearing a lot about AMD's 7nm products over the past several months, but the company has primarily focused on the enterprise market. In early November, AMD announced its 7nm Zen 2-based EPYC processors along with the 7nm Radeon Instinct MI60 for datacenter customers.

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.

Vega II

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.
