After what looks as if an eternity, AMD lastly got here out of the woodwork and formally introduced launch dates for its highly anticipated CPUs and GPUs. The Zen 3 keynote will likely be on 10/8/2020 at 12pm PT, and the RX 6000 “Big Navie” keynote is on 10/28/2020 at 12pm PT.
What does this imply for AMD? On the CPU aspect of issues, Zen 3 is rumored to be an absolute monster of an structure. Based on what we already know, Zen 3 will likely be primarily based on an enhanced 7nm node from TSMC (both N7P or N7+), and focus considerably on growing IPC efficiency, through enhancements to latency with the L1-L3 caches and growing cache sizes to feed the beast.
For AMD’s RDNA 2/Big Navi architectures, we’ve got been anticipating their launch for months, and with Nvidia’s Ampere GPUs now heading into the market, all of us are hoping for good competitors from AMD within the graphics card market.
