AMD confirms their next gen Zen 3 CPUs will release this year

by January 8, 2020 0 comments

This year’s CES has been quite a blast. Especially for AMD. After announcing the Threadripper 3990X and the competitor to Nvidia’s GTX 1660 Ti, the RADEON 5600 XT, AMD’s announcement today should worry Intel. Dr. Lisa Su, AMD’s popular CEO under whose leadership the brand has become a threat to Intel, today confirmed to journalists at a press conference that Zen 3 would be releasing this year. 

“You should expect that we’re going to be very aggressive with the CPU roadmap,” thus spake the Doctor. “We think Zen 2 is the best CPU core out there today, and we’re very proud of it. We’ve completed the family and Zen 3 is doing really well, we’re very pleased about it and you’ll hear more about it in 2020.” 

She then went on to assert, “Let me clear: you will see Zen 3 in 2020.” 

In the past Forest Norrod of AMD had told The Street that Zen 3’s architecture will be different than those of the current generation Zen 2. And this should really worry Intel. 

Zen 2 proved to be extremely popular processors. They provided a 15% performance increase than previous AMD processors and are in many cases performing better than Intel’s processors. The newer architecture means we might see a performance jump just as good, if not better. 

Dr. Lisa Su also talked about AMD’s upcoming APUs for laptops, the Ryzen 4000. Ryzen 4000’s GPUs will be using the Vega architecture instead of the newer Navi. As far as the CPUs are concerned, they will use the Zen 2 mobile architecture. 

If CES announcements are anything to go by, 2020 will be a big year for AMD. Do you believe that the company will finally take over Intel in terms of market share? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
