While Intel is currently finding itself in the 14nm doldrums, AMD has confirmed it will be in attendance at CES 2019 to showcase 7nm high-performance CPUs and GPUs.
AMD president and CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, will be delivering a keynote address at CES 2019 in Las Vegas, scheduled to take place on Wednesday, January 9 at 9:00 AM local time.
The focus of Su’s keynote will be on AMD’s plans for 2019, covering computing, gaming, and visualisation, specifically with its new 7nm technology in mind.
“AMD is transforming the future of computing in our ever-expanding digital world and revolutionizing the $35 billion gaming industry,” said Gary Shapiro, president, and CEO, CTA. “We look forward to Dr. Su’s keynote as she paints a picture of the next-generation of computing that will help redefine the future of gaming and virtual entertainment.”
Up until this point, AMD’s focus with 7nm has been on mobile and server chips, rather than gaming needs. That looks as if it’s all set to change at CES 2019, where we’ll be getting our first peek at the high-end desktop parts coming our way. Hearing about 7nm Navi GPUs seems like an absolute banker, while 7nm Zen 2 CPU cores are also on track for launch next year.
If everything’s going as well as it appears from the outside, AMD is poised to have a barnstorming 2019. Intel has stalled lately with its well-publicised difficulties with 10nm yields, combined with lack of 14nm stock. Nvidia, too, has just launched its 12nm GeForce RTX 20 Series Turing GPUs, and there’s a real chance here for AMD to leapfrog the pair of them, particularly at the middle and low-end of the graphics card and CPU markets.
We’ll be sure to update you on all of the key events surrounding AMD and CES 2019 during the beginning of next year.
