Tech company AMD’s ‘Next Generation’ products to push the limits of gaming
Huge technology conference Computex 2019 recently gave the stage to computer processors and related technologies maker AMD, which gave us a look at their new PC products. And they’re looking impressive.
AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su gave us a look at graphics products that are expected to deliver new levels of performance, features and experiences for PC gamers, enthusiasts and content creators.
Continuing its path of PC leadership and industry firsts, AMD announced the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desktop processor, the most advanced desktop processor in the world3 with ground-breaking performance across gaming, productivity, and content creation applications.
Based on the new “Zen 2” core architecture with AMD chiplet design approach, 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desktop processors are expected to offer more performance-critical on-die cache than ever before to unleash elite gaming performance. Yes please.
Additionally, all 3rd Gen Ryzen desktop processors are supported by the world’s first PCIe 4.0 PC readiness for the most advanced motherboards, graphics, and storage technologies available, setting a new standard of performance and providing the ultimate consumer experience.
That’s not all, as AMD unveiled RDNA, the next foundational gaming architecture that’s designed to drive the future of PC gaming, console, and cloud for years to come.
With a new compute unit10 design, RDNA is expected to deliver incredible performance, power and memory efficiency in a smaller package compared to the previous generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture.
It is projected to provide up to 1.25X higher performance-per-clock11 and up to 1.5X higher performance-per-watt over GCN12, enabling better gaming performance at lower power and reduced latency.
RDNA will power the upcoming 7nm AMD Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards which feature high-speed GDDR6 memory and support for the PCIe 4.0 interface.
During the keynote, Dr. Su showcased the power of RDNA and one of the new AMD Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards in a head-to-head comparison with a RTX 2070 card running a Strange Brigade gameplay demo, beating the competition by delivering incredible 100FPS gaming.
Best part? The AMD Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards are expected to be available in July 2019.
Speaking of new technology, Sony unveiled new details about the PS5 and just how fast it’s processing power is. Spoiler: It knocks the PS4 Pro out of the water.
It’s a good year to be a game.
