The Computex is an annual event where all the major PC tech and components maker reveal and release their new products, services and this year, it is all set to begin tomorrow. Prior to this, we saw that AMD released its new 3rd gen Ryzen 3900X CPU at the event. During its Computex inaugural keynote presentation, the President and CEO of AMD, Dr. Lisa Su revealed the 7nm-based CPU and GPU for 2019. Other than the CPU and GPU, the company also launched some of the new products and services ahead of the Computex 2019.
AMD Zen 2 core will be used in the next-generation of AMD Ryzen and EPYC CPUs. According to the company, the Zen 2 core delivers 15% more IPC and it is more powerful and gives a better performance than the earlier used cores. It comes with a design improvement, has larger cache sizes and comes with a redesigned floating-point engine.
AMD also launched the world’s first PCIe 4.0 supported chipset – X570 for socket AM4. The new chipset offers the broadest ecosystem readiness in the AMD history. The company also launched PCIe 4.0 storage solutions along with 50 new motherboards. Other than a new chipset, AMD’s new 3rd Gen CPU – Ryzen 9 3900X and all the other 3rd Gen AMD CPUs also come with PCIe 4.0 support.
Dr. Su also announced the launch of AMD’s RDNA gaming architecture along with AMD Radeon RX 5700-series GPUs. Comparing it to the earlier Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, the new RENA architecture promises to deliver good performance, power and a better memory efficiency in a smaller package. On the other hand, the 7nm AMD Radeon RX 5700-series GPUs is powered by the same RDNA architecture and it will come with the GDDR6 memory. The Radeon RX 5700-series will also support PCIe 4.0.
The CEO also announced its Datacenter updates where a demonstration of the 2nd Gen AMD EPYC-based CPU gave 2 times better performance than two Intel Xenos on the NAMD benchmark. AMD teamed up with Microsoft’s Azure to announce better levels of performance for the CFD (computational fluid dynamics) which earlier was unobtainable. To achieve this, Microsoft’s Azure HB cloud ran on a 1st Gen AMD EPYC-CPU based system.
The world's first PCIe 4.0 ready platform for gamers: the new X570 chipset for socket AM4 enables high-performance graphics cards, networking devices, NVMe drives, and more. Available only with 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen processors. https://t.co/OgLHoqWv9T pic.twitter.com/3rP9Wt7fu6
