AMD Computex 2019 Lisa Su CEO Keynote: Live Blog

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.

Considering the competition has less cores & less IPC, though higher clocks, I can't see who's AMD milking?
He's just mad he's bent over for intel all these years and can't handle the AMD value. $850 bucks for 7900x that's going to be rofl stomped vs $500 3900x. He's panicking.

What stands out to me is the wattage difference from 3700x to 3800x, 65W to 105W for only 300Mhz more base clock
Is this just where the power creep sets in (3.5GHz) and it becomes less cost effective to clock up, or is there something else behind the wattage increase? (better turbos, etc)

3700x looks like a low wattage power house for gamers

These look to be solid CPUs!

So...... what did Adored say versus what came out?

Is anyone else happy we didn't see a 16c/32t part on mainstream? hehe!

For the speed, wattage and price it's s very impressive CPU, if that's their entry level example too, no more 4/6 cores?

Higher base clock & higher all core turbo.

As mostly a gamer, I don't see what 16c/32t would have offered me, I'm pretty happy with what was announced, I'm sure higher speed chips will come soon ie 3950x etc but not too fussed for the 16c right now.

Probably like the previous gen. All core boost is -200 from single core boost on 2700x and 65W tdp chip only goes to +200 over base.

The ceiling doesn't look great, but it's not that compact. They must be heavily binning, so everything below 3900X has junk dies, but I guess we'll see. AMD notoriously overvolts.

It is just a matter of time for the 16-cores anyway.

100% agree... Intel's only advantage right now is clock speed and latency. AMD has already crushed them in $/multicore performance.

With the core-to-price bracket remaining the same, there's really no hope for a 64 cores Threadripper.

That price per core of the 12-core is great !

Not 5 Ghz like some people have "predicted", but still dam' close ... 4.6 is not bad at all!
What a monster of a CPU, for the same introductory price as the 1800X just 2 years ago.

100% getting one + X570 + some future PCI-e 4 NVME SSD !

AMD had the perfect time, perfect reason, 50 years, back on track after so many years behind. AMD had everything and yet they preferred to kill the hype train while they could hehe

I will still buy the 12 cores as I planned few months ago, even though I will have to pay $170 more for the 12 cores.

I wonder if there'd be non X variants on Ryzen 9 or low(er) power versions :confused:

You do realize they do have Rzyen 2xxx & TR2 to sell right [IMG alt=":rolleyes:"]https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/styles/tpu/smilies/rolleyes.gif[/IMG]

Real world TDP will be higher.. 65w does not mean exactly it..
Probably Ryzen 3500 may be 65w

Remember the Zen+ 5 series came out later as well as the B450 boards. I'm guessing a Quarter apart. July 7 if friendly to Back to School and 5 series/550 might be released by Holiday Season.

First of all M$ Windows needs to not spontaneously combust with that many cores and threads.

Did anyone else notice the absolutely insane amount of cache on the 3900x?

that should be a BEAST in games.
Every Zen2 CCX has double the L3 cache compare to Zen/+, the 3900X has access to the full amount of L3 on those dies.

if they show flagships at computex that means Rx 5700 is the best?? ..

so the rumors were indeed lies, no 5ghz boost.

I bet overclocked 9700k still beats AMD at 1080p sadly... not that it matters, but just sad... I was hoping for bigger performance jump this round. silicon is just a dying beast is all there is to it.

Come on Intel, now you need to push AMD to release their 16 core Ryzen! :oops:

15% IPC increase is notable, considering.

I think you're really underestimating the amount Cache plays into games. These chips are going to be buttery.
