Like a snub to Intel. While the founder of Santa Clara was forced to postpone its transition to 7 nm engraving and that he reorganize his teams following this announcement, at AMD, conversely, everything is fine. This is what Lisa Su, the P.-D.G. company, said during the presentation of the financial results for the second quarter of 2020. Results which, by the way, are good and boosted by sales of Ryzen chips for laptops:
“Their adoption [par les partenaires d’AMD] was massive and made faster than any other laptop chip in AMD history ”.
These processors, we had the opportunity to test them in three Asus machines in recent months, the Zephyrus G14 and G15 as well as the TUF A15-566. The Ryzen 4000H have proven themselves in their chosen field and are placed within gaming laptops offering good performance-equipment-price ratios.
AMD is sticking to its original schedule and won’t be late
- The custom chips imagined for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X?
They have already been in production for a while. AMD ensures that deliveries will be made on time so that these little monsters are then integrated on the technical platforms of future consoles Sony and Microsoft, expected by the end of the year.
- The launch of its 7nm Zen 3 processor architecture for 2020?
It is still relevant today. It will surely be this Zen 3 architecture that the AMD Ryzen 4000 processors for muscular desktop PCs will use, whose release is long overdue.
As a reminder, currently, Ryzen 4000G APUs for stationary PCs, the Ryzen and Threadripper 3000 as well as processors for laptops Ryzen 4000H all use the Zen 2 architecture (also engraved in 7 nm).
- New GPUs for our desktop PCs?
Yes, it is also planned. No worries. It’s been over a year since AMD has made us languish but Lisa Su has assured that the more muscular version of the graphics chips, code name Big Navi is on its way. As a reminder, it will use the RDNA 2 architecture – like the processors of the next gen consoles. It should allow AMD to launch several graphics cards to complete its current offer which consists only of models. Entrance and midrange and who stand up to Nvidia GeForce GTX 16 Series.
On the high end, Nvidia continues to reign supreme thanks to to GeForce RTX and RTX Super and has been for over two years now. We therefore hope that the time taken by AMD has been used to draw a solution capable of standing up to the current (and future?) Monsters of Nvidia.
