AMD shows its cards at Financial Analyst Day

During the Financial Analyst Day AMD has taken the opportunity to make an interesting summary of its new generation solutions and technologies, with which it intends to face all the challenges that are to come, and with which it hopes stay as one of the great players of the technology sector on numerous fronts.

Undoubtedly one of the most important announcements has been its new roadmap focused on Zen architecture, where we have been able to see that Zen 4, Zen 4 with 3D cache and Zen 4c They will be your next “key pieces” to compete in the high-performance x86 processor sector, both for general consumption and in the HEDT and professional markets.

The first will come the Ryzen 7000 processors, configured with up to 16 cores and 32 threadswhile the second will be headed by the new generation of AMD Threadripper processors which, if all goes according to plan, should have up to 64 cores and 128 threads. Finally we have the EPYC chips, which will be aimed at the professional sector, and which will be configured with up to 96 cores and 192 threads in its version based on Zen 4, and up to 128 cores and 256 threads models based on Zen 4c.

Another interesting novelty can be found in AMD’s commitment to adaptive architectures (XDNA), the development of the world’s first data center APU within the AMD Instinct MI300 serieswhich will be the first of its kind to use an MCM (interconnected chiplets) design and will integrate a GPU based on the CDNA 3 architecture, a Zen 4 CPU, 3D stacked cache memory and HBM memory.


AMD also plans to continue expanding its offer of semi-customized solutions, and it is totally understandable since this business unit has provided significant income over the last decade, especially thanks to the success of its APUs when integrated into two generations of consoles (PS4 and Xbox One, and PS5 and Xbox Series XS) .

On the other hand, AMD has made it clear that it expects to take the lead in the AI ​​and deep learning industry by strengthening its portfolio of software and hardware solutions, and will rely on Xilinxone of his latest acquisitions.

The general consumer Zen 4 processors, known as Ryzen 7000, will hit the market in the second half of this year, and the new fourth generation EPYC, also based on said architecture, will start arriving during the fourth quarter of this year. We do not have an exact date, but this information that AMD has given is quite limited and takes us directly to the months of October, November and December.
