AMD Confirms Launch of Next-gen Ryzen, EPYC and Navi for Q3

During AMD's annual shareholder meeting today, AMD president and CEO Dr. Lisa Su confirmed the launch of next-generation AMD Ryzen, EPYC CPUs and Navi GPUs for the third quarter of this year. The expected products are going to be manufactured on TSMC's 7 nm process and will be using new and improved architectures.

Ryzen 3000 series CPUs are rumored to have up to as much as 16 cores in Ryzen 9 SKUs, 12 cores in Ryzen 7 SKUs and 8 cores in Ryzen 5 SKUs. EPYC server CPUs will be available in models up to 64 cores. All of the new CPUs will be using AMD "Zen 2" architecture that will offer better IPC performance and, as rumors suggest for consumer models, are OC beasts. Navi GPUs are the new 7 nm GPUs that are expected to be very competitive both price and performance wise to NVIDIA's Turing series, hopefully integrating new technologies such as dedicated Ray Tracing cores for higher frame rates in Ray Tracing enabled games. No next generation ThreadRipper launch date was mentioned, so we don't yet know when and if that will that land.

Third quarter... so, Hot Chips? That'd be 19th of August.

To be fair though, has ANYONE heard a rumor about Matisse being an OC beast?

Higher stock clocks, yes.

OC beast, well that's something different. The days of of a 1 GHz overclock or more on air are gone.
Agreed, maybe just "regular-non OC beasts" is better since AMD aggressively pumps their clocks on their chips to where most OC's on XFR chips are immaterial.

Didn't you see 8C ES matched 9900k at much lower power? with this extra ~50% power saving, I am sure you would be able to OC at least by 20% more.
So lest say 5.65Ghz 9900K equivalent - at least on CB R15 kind of workloads.

LOL...Seriously? You are an emotional loller coaster. I'll never need a gaming rig again because laptops are great then it's I can't wait to buy a whole AMD rig again next it's AMD GPUs are power hogs and now it's I can't wait 4 more weeks. Patience young grass hopper.

A better and cheaper processor await you for a wee bit of time.

To be fair though, has ANYONE heard a rumor about Matisse being an OC beast?

Higher stock clocks, yes.

OC beast, well that's something different. The days of of a 1 GHz overclock or more on air are gone.
Apparently, with XFR AND PB, normal OC are not needed because the CPU will do it for you. So, it could still be true and the purest sense.

laptops are great if you can cool them proper, but I want a proper 1440p high refresh setup for my Final Fantasy XIV Shadowbringers binge session, has nothing to do with patience, its the free markets and its how i want to spend my money and time, i enjoy that mmo immensely and go back every new expansion for a good three months. i don't want to be limited by my laptop anymore, not for this game.

mmos are a lot more exciting at launch, i don't want to miss out on the new expansion "energy"

Manually or automatically, it doesn''t matter. That great OC headroom isn't there anymore. If not, show me one rumor that says it's an OC beast. (Not the OP..)

Navi really needs to move the needle on price / performance.

Well, the current Intel socket is more or less a dead end.

If you buy a Ryzen you'll be able to upgrade to upcoming CPU's.
eh not really, if i went with ryzen 1700x or 2700x i would still need a new mobo if i wanted to upgrade to 3700x. because i personally want the new samsung pci express 4.0 storage drives that are inevitably coming, etc.

That's an upgrade you have to do with Intel as well if you want PCIe 4, right?

I just saw your specs, you have a 9700K? If so, why upgrade?

There's a difference between want to and have to.

You should be able to have a Zen 2 CPU running on a X370, X470, B350 or B450 board (perhaps even A320): whether or not all Zen 2 CPUs will run on gen 1 boards remains to be seen (referring to those with higher core counts), most likely due to VRMs.
