AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su will be kicking off Computex 2022 with a keynote on the 23rd of May focused on AI, HPC, digital resilience, startups, and the increased importance of technology as a result of the pandemic. At least those are the official themes. We know that Dr. Su is very likely to announce AMD’s next-gen Zen 4 CPUs, Ryzen 7000 for consumers, and 4th Gen Epyc Genoa for data centers. The keynote will be streamed online on the 23rd of May at 14:00.
Just a few days back during the company’s Q1 earnings call, the CPU roadmap for the next six quarters was unveiled. We have the Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” CPUs launching later this year with Zen 4 cores, PCIe Gen 5, DDR5 memory, etc. In the notebook market, Dragon Range will lead the charge in the performance segment with up to sixteen Zen 4 cores, DDR5 memory, PCIe Gen 5, and a TDP of 55W. The hard launch will reportedly take place in September (as per DigiTimes).
Phoenix will serve the ultrabook market with up to eight Zen 4 cores, LPDDR5 memory, PCIe Gen 5, and a TDP ranging from 35-45W. The high-end X670 motherboards should also be unveiled during the keynote. It will feature a chiplet design with two B650 die, essentially doubling I/O capabilities and bandwidth. The Radeon RX 7700 XT may get a small teaser but don’t expect an announcement anytime soon.
