There have currently been loads of rumors that Ryzen 3rd Technology and AMD Navi would be launching in July 2018, with AMD CEO Lisa Su herself hinting that Team Red’s Computex 2019 keynote would expose ‘new details’ about the 7nm lineup.
As for what these chips will be capable of, AMD Ryzen 3rd Era will be based off of a 7nm architecture and will bring PCIe 4. tech to the mainstream. This need to enhance bandwidth to GPUs and M.2 SSDs, which are additional common than ever prior to.
We know a bit less about AMD Navi graphics playing cards, we know they are coming in Q3, but we really do not know what they’ll be capable, or whether they’ll compete with Nvidia Turing playing cards at the substantial-finish. We have viewed preceding rumors that AMD Navi graphics cards would not see higher-finish playing cards until finally future yr, so we could just see some mid-selection Navi 10 GPUs at Computex.
What about Threadripper?
Just one detail which is notably lacking from this roadmap is AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3rd Technology. We had earlier envisioned Threadripper 3000 chips in 2019, but it is conspicuously lacking below. This traces up with a earlier rumor that Threadripper 3rd Generation would be pushed back to early 2020.
What will be attention-grabbing to see with this Threadripper hold off is whether or not the rumored bigger main counts of Ryzen 3000 will cannibalize Threadripper revenue. We doubt we’ll see a mainstream Ryzen chip that will get on the Threadripper 2990WX’s amount, but we could see up to 16 cores on a Ryzen 9 processor.
This also means that Ryzen 2nd Technology will also have to compete with the rumored Intel Cascade Lake-X, the subsequent Intel HEDT platform rumored to launch at Computex. However, because Staff Blue’s next HEDT chips are rumored to be dependent on its 14nm production process, this could possibly not be the death sentence it looks like. We’ll just have to wait around and see.
