AMD's 50th anniversary - May 1, 2019

It's about 6 weeks left, will AMD launch an anniversary product?

I think it's possible that we'll see the launch of a 12 nm Zen+ Picasso APU. They've already been launched for laptops. Not very exciting though, as I don't expect much improvement compared to the 2400G.

What seems less likely to me is the launch of a 7 nm Zen 2 Matisse CPU, it just a tad too early IMO. If it happens, I'm pretty sure it would have 8 cores or less, saving the higher core count for later.

What I least expect is a graphics card, I don't know what it could be at this point. Maybe an 8 GB Radeon VII with a lower price, that's the only thing I can come up with.

Paper launch of Zen 2 (seen it called in some places: "Valhalla").

Actual availability later.
But still... seeing it how it will perform should be awesome !

Even 8 core only, if those 8 cores are faster and with less power consumption than 9900K, people will drool hard for it !

Some demos about Zen2 cpus and maybe a Navi one would be ok since they are to be launched in a few months time.

It's far too juicy for a Nano version, unless the clocks take a huge tumble.
A wide but lower clocked GPU? Sounds a bit like Max-Q, if they slash the VRAM as well that's not a bad sell.

But unlikely.

Intel will need to surprise me with some extraordinary before I give them 500-600 euro for Processors for my next platform.
That must to be huge step forward in single threaded performance compare to i9-9900K or many people will build AMD platform in future.
Ryzen 3000 10 Cores + 700 euro worth high end Radeon Navy same performer as RTX2080Ti.

I think X570 Motherboards are over the corner- In my country the biggest PC Hardware retailer with 52 stores - almost no X470 MB in stock, this days only 3 models listed and 2 of them in stock only in 2 stores and the third model with little better availability.
Looks like they are waiting to get the X570 instead of ordering another stock of X470 MB's..
Same with other Retailer with 36 stores -not a single X470 MB available in stores.

How is it on your country?

they could've made it 2750X at least.
and add 50MHz.
I mean anything for that +$50 price

I hear ya.
Or slightly lower price, really.

It remains to be seen if they will do some kind of giveaway.
This is where we could see the next generation Ryzen, as the winners could be getting their CPU's maybe two months from now.

(Intel's 8086K didn't get delivered until at least 6 weeks after the competition ended.)
