A couple of leaked slides from AMD have found their way to the web, and they show a high level overview of what the Sunnyvale chip designer has in store for consumers through 2022. There are no big surprises, though—the slides essentially reiterate what we already know, which is that Zen 4 in the works on the CPU side, and more Navi GPUs are on the way. The slides are part of an "AMD Corporate Deck-September 2019" presentation, which we imagine will be made public whole in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime, let's have a looked at leaked slides, courtesy of Guru3D, starting with the one focused on Zen... Zen and Zen+ are bunched together, though they actually represent two different...

Here is some bad new for Intel—rival AMD is not resting on its laurels. Having just ported its Zen 2 architecture over to its EPYC processor line for servers, AMD took the opportunity during the launch event to briefly discuss its future roadmap, noting that the design phase for its next-generation Zen 3 architecture is complete. Before we get into that, let's have a look at the Zen architecture to date. The original Zen architecture, built on a 14-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process, launched in 2017 and put AMD back in the game, so to speak. Prior to Zen, Intel pretty much dominated the high-end processor scene. A year later, AMD launched another round of processors under the Zen+... Read more...
It looks as though AMD has made some adjustments to it processors lineup for 2019, and at least one expected produce family has gotten the boot. In March, AMD presented its 2019 product roadmap to investors in which it clearly showed that 3rd generation Ryzen 3000 desktop processors would arrive in mid-2019, while the 3rd generation Ryzen Threadripper processors would arrive sometime later in 2019. However, in its most recent roadmap issued to investors last week (and now available online in PDF form), the 3rdgeneration Ryzen Threadripper processors are a no-show. We can't say that this revelation is too terribly surprising for a number of reasons, as the 3rd generation... Read more...
