After months of rumors and anticipation, AMD has finally teased its upcoming Zen 3 CPUs and Navi 2x GPUs. The former is set to be announced on the 8th of October while the latter on the 28th of October:

The Ryzen 4000 and Epyc Milan processors based on the Zen 3 core architecture are expected to bring significant improvements on the single-threaded performance front. We already know that Zen 3 powered chips will see an 8 core CCX design with unified L3 cache and a variety of features aimed at fine-tuning the boost clocks and gaming capabilities.

RDNA 2, on the other hand, will primarily be a refresh of RDNA 1 with better performance per watt, ray-tracing support and higher API feature-level. This is the same architecture powering both the next-gen consoles and as such should perform on the same level as the RTX 3080 (Big Navi). You can read more about RDNA 1 and 2 here:
