AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su is heading the opening Keynote at the 2019 Computex trade-show in Taipei. Her company is on the inflection point of new product-lines, namely the 3rd generation Ryzen desktop processors, 2nd generation EPYC, and Radeon Navi graphics cards. This post serves as our Live Blog of the event.
2:17 AM (UTC): Dr. Su takes centerstage as Computex CEO Walter Yeh welcomes and introduces her.

"We want our devices to understand what we want."

2:25 AM (UTC): Dr. Su sets the stage for "Zen 2" CPU core and "Navi" GPU technology reveal.

2:30 AM (UTC): Dr. Su announces Azure Cloud expansion for up to 11,500 cores.
2:32 AM (UTC): AMD updates development of EPYC "Rome" 64-core enterprise processor, with a performance benchmark, showing a 2P "Rome" system outperforming a 2P Intel "Cascade Lake" system. AMD announced a Q3-2019 launch for EPYC "Rome."

2:35 AM (UTC): AMD is unveiling the Radeon Navi GPU.

2:39 AM: Next-generation Sony PlayStation powered by AMD Navi and Ryzen CPU.

2:40 AM: Navi based on new RDNA architecture that is NOT GCN! RDNA is a clean-slate GPU design that is not based on Graphics CoreNext.

2:44: 1.25x IPC increase over Vega SIMD core

AMD announced Radeon RX 5000 series based on "Navi" in honor of AMD 50th Anniversary:

Radeon RX 5700 beats NVIDIA RTX 2070 at "Strange Brigade" by roughly 10 percent. The GPU launches some time in July 2019.

3:00 AM UTC: AMD turns its attention to the PC processor family, with an introduction to 2nd generation Ryzen processors driving high-performance notebooks

3:01 AM UTC: ASUS unveils its AMD X570 motherboard family for Ryzen 3000 processors, with up to 30 models in the pipeline. It also unveiled an ROG Strix desktop based on 3rd generation Ryzen processor.

3:03 AM UTC: Acer unveiled a new "beastly" gaming notebook based on 2nd generation Ryzen mobile product.

Acer also unveiled a new Predator desktop featuring 3rd generation Ryzen and Radeon RX 5700 graphics.

3:10 AM UTC: The 3rd generation Ryzen is here!

3:12 AM UTC: Zen 2 cores, AM4 socket, PCIe gen 4.0

3:14 AM: 2x Floating point, 2x cache size, 15% IPC uplift!

3:16 AM: Ryzen 7 3700X 8-core/16-thread, 3.60~4.40 GHz clocks, 65W TDP, and 15% performance over 2700X. Significantly (30% faster) than i7-9700K

Astounding gaming performance gains over 2700X! Gaming performance beats Core i9-9900K.

3700X + Radeon RX 5700 + X570 is a pure PCIe gen 4.0 platform. PCIe gen 4.0 makes a difference in 3DMark PCIe b/w feature test.

3:35 AM UTC: The Ryzen 9 3900X: 12-core/24-thread, up to 4.80 GHz clocks, 72 MB cache. Beats Intel's HEDT 12-core Core i9-9920X processor.

Pricing and product details:

Availability July 7, 2019.

BIG TURN OFF
why would AMD pit R7 3700X against i7 9700K
EDIT: nvm, they put their R7 3800X vs i9 9900K
EDIT2: Press F for i9 9920X

navi is nice but if it doesn't have a version that is better then what nvidia has to offer. it just shows they are not for our best interests and just the interest of being greedy... push tech forward at a higher level. greed slows progress down...

Yup the last "draw back" on going Ryzen is gone. :clap:
I just hope there are enough spare EPYC for AMD to make another Threadripper.

I'm impressed Zen 2 hoping we will be getting a rx 3800 custom type in the Ps5/xbox and not a slow laptop variant like ps4 and xbox one. DeVs be able hit 60fps more often provided they dont go to crazy with graphics. Also like that it's not GCN something new :)

What's that sound? Oh yeah, that's the sound of Intel's board of directors shitting a brick.

They are still making record profits, it takes more than this for Intel to truly feel it.
Intel had been in far even worse situation than this.

Yup that was my biggest takeaway from this. Looks like they fixed latencies and memory speeds. Along with IPC increase ofc.

Don't expect any real benchmarks until launch, as AMD has apparently embargoed their partners from showing anything outside of what AMD has shown at the event.

Looks like their performance ended up better than they expected on the CPUs, so they held back the clocks a bit and increased pricing.
I guess people will still bash all the leakers and say they were wrong and AMD didn't deliver etc.
Yeah, I'm a bit disappointed with the pricing as well, but such is life. Do expect more SKUs later in the year though.

That may very well be true but it still doesn't take away from the fact that AMD just handed Intel a massive blow.

This is what all of us have been waiting for.

I'm guessing they did not need the 16 core part with Intels current fails but the 12 core still looks delicious.

12 cores and not 5 ghz at $499, no 16 cores, milking time for amd, top end navi faster than 2070, pcie4 matters, that is pretty much it.

No single thread performance and when they did a cinebench multithread 3700x 8 cores 16 threads, they poorly x 9700k which is an 8 cores and 8 threads, badly matched, why they did not use the 9900k? price will be their excuse.

I currently have a i7 4790k and have been waiting till today to see where I go next. Intel or AMD.

Whilst a lot is subjective and still needs testing I now know I will go AMD. Even just for the future upgrade path as Intel has clearly stalled somewhat in new CPU design. These increases and performance along with cost. I'm certainly happy to go this route. For $500 as well, much cheaper than intel too so $ per performance must be amazing.

you know the shit is real deal when AMD start to compete ryzen 3000 with their own previous generation CPU, and only put i7 9700k and i9 9900k as comparison
its mean intel aint worth their precious time on stage and slide anymore

Considering the competition has less cores & less IPC, though higher clocks, I can't see who's AMD milking?

Same MSRP as 2700X -> 3700X

Remember the Intel Roadmap leaked from Dell presentation only shows Intel moving to a 10c. Intel has their presentation in 26hrs. We'll see then if anything new is shown.

CPU's are impressive! Kind of lost hope in replacing my GTX 1080 with an AMD card this year unfortunately.

If Intel does not come with a 12 or 16 cores in future amd will be like Intel has been past few years, milking the bullshit. I knew they would back down this time, they have the perfect time to let the hype train die with 12 cores. I would not buy the 16 cores but I really wanted amd to deliver, i guess i was an overhoper fool. TDP review might have been the case here but if that is true then amd will never launch 16 cores on 7nm.

Don't worry, you can get the 9900KS at 300W for 5 ghz :roll:
I just get FX 9590 flashback, oh god

arent we all excited for AMD CPU only? as its common knowledge that AMD no longer fight Nvidia at flagship grade GPU since RX 400 series
