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.

I would like to see some matx x570 boards.
Here are the MSI boards but no mATX

15% IPC increase is notable, considering.

LOL, pound sand. Nobody wants that on the mainstream!!! :D:roll:
I'll wait for benches, 5ghz Intel 9700k prob still beats all the new AMD chips at single core game 1080p min and max fps... and that is just sad to me... I know it doesn't matter for most of us, not even me as I game at 1440p and the results then become more even, and probably AMD wins this time finally, but I was just hoping for more progress is all.

I think it'll be 57xx, as Xzibit explained above
Wait what a 5770 I have two of those sitting here right now

Yeah right, now you're talking out of your donkey...
What do you expect from an Intel fanboy? The guy is showing all the classic signs of an Intel fanboy.

I don't know, if researchers keep finding exploits and the fixes keep including a "few percentage points of lost performance" then the performance gap is going to be closed even more so than it already is with Zen 2/Ryzen 3000.

Even if there is going to be a performance difference between AMD and Intel, unlike with Zen and even Zen+, the performance difference is going to be much smaller. If I had to hazard a guess, probably 5% difference in performance, maybe even less. And once you get down to those numbers, it doesn't at all matter except to those who care about nothing but benchmark numbers. Real world performance difference will be negligible to 95% of users this time around and that's really all that matters.

In other words, as Hardware Unboxed titled their video... Intel is screwed.

Hey guys.... What's with the animosity towards each other. Either way from an AMD or Intel fan point of view these releases are good news.

I've used Intel for years (before that it was AMD) so I swap and change based on best CPU but I can see something here for AMD is really worth trying and looks to be an amazing lineup of CPUs, especially with the IPC increase.

So AMD fans have a great, future proofed family of CPUs to sink their teeth into.

And Intel fans, well hopefully for you guys it will get Intel to push back against the competition.

At the end of the day whether you're Intel or AMD fans or like me and unbiased. This is good news for everyone and is pushing computing to the next stage.

In games/ST performance, the 3700X matches the 9700K, 3800X matches the 9900K. Fantastic.

Hopefully, new GPUs will be priced under NV and be available in satisfactory quantities too (unlike the Polaris, Fury, Vega start).

So the msrp of Ryzen 3600 is 199usd ?
Yep. The prices are the same, but you get 15% more performance in single threaded performance and same power consumption. :)

we will find out soon enough when @W1zzard gives us new benches July 7th. I hope I am wrong.

the 9900K/9700k at 4.9/5ghz OC (which is easy to obtain on them) still beating the new ryzen chips by a few FPS across the board. I was just hoping for more progress than 4.6ghz. the 5.1ghz rumors for the new ryzen chips were a longshot I knew, but I was hoping 7nm was a game changer, but nope, the fact is Silicon is a dead beast when it comes to true IPC gains of past ages.

Define a few. If the difference is less than ten frames per second, big deal.

And besides, yes you can overclock those Intel chips very high but it's getting to the point where you need your very own nuclear power plant cooling tower to cool the damn thing.

Yeah unfortunately they are but in their day they were quite good GPU's for what they were

From what I have heard Navi 10 is still GCN, just a RDNA optimized tweaked version of it, and Navi 20 (5800+) will be the true full RDNA arch release.
