In an interview with Forbes, AMD’s CTO Mark Papermaster revealed that they will not let their foot off the accelerator for CES 2022, but give full throttle. This confirms that Team Red will have a ton of announcements aimed at its consumer base that have the primary focus on high performance computing.
AMD is in full swing with its CES 2022 announcements, so expect some important revelations
While AMD has its keynote scheduled for Jan 4th at 7:00 AM PST (15:00 GMT), there is already an incredible amount of hype about it. The reason is that the company is teasing the announcements on Twitter and other social networks. On top of that, there is also speculation about what’s next!
The following quote from Mark should make us even more excited about the upcoming event, which is only a few weeks ahead of us.
To mark: If you think about what we wanted to achieve with each generation – it was a better experience. With the PC market – it was undersupplied. On notebooks, battery life wasn’t improving, graphics technology wasn’t being used as quickly and we wanted to change that, better CPU and GPU performance, better performance per watt and it turned out to have helped desktops too, especially gamers – You benefit from having a great CPU and GPU and how they communicate with each other. This is what gives PC users a great experience, and that’s what we’ve focused on.
We’re really looking forward to the upcoming CES in January – it’s going to be quieter than usual with a large virtual presence, but we couldn’t be more enthusiastic than the next generation of products. We can’t give too much away now, but Antony, stay tuned. We do not let our foot off the proverbial gas pedal. We are ahead at full speed.
Additionally, while AMD is expecting an important CPU announcement in the form of Vermeer-X Ryzen 3D V-Cache chips, it will also expect more details for that Next generation Zen 4 core architecture This will be the greatest architectural and performance enhancement in the years after Zen 3.
Antonius:With a view to 2022 and of course very excited about the release of Zen 4, what are your hopes for the new architecture, what do you think PC enthusiasts like me will be most impressed with and has it brought special challenges?
To mark: I can’t go into many details, but it will be a completely improved experience. In the beginning we had to put the consumer first and if you want value, go to AMD. Well, we wanted to go way beyond value. We wanted to offer the best performance and the best experience, and after we did that, thanks to our guidance, we got a place with our gaming partners, our PC partners and right down to our server partners. We can optimize deeply for the end experience so that customers can soon expect ever longer battery life, service quality and improved application performance. We expect high expectations from our customers for the next AMD launch and we are working hard to make that happen with Zen 4.
Antony, regarding the next generation – I refer to the January CES. We’re excited to announce some additional details on our new product launches that will deliver phenomenal experiences, and as mentioned, we’ll be adding more details on Zen 4 later in the year with some of those mentioned at CES, share announcements about this in 2022. It will be a very exciting year for AMD.
AMD CES 2022 – What to Expect
The AMD CES 2022 Keynote is likely to host a number of products, most notably the next-generation Ryzen CPU / APU line for mainstream and high-performance notebooks. The new line of products will be known as Rembrandt and will power the Ryzen 6000H and Ryzen 6000U notebooks and be coupled with the Zen 3 and RDNA 2 architectures. That being said, AMD could also give us more details on its upcoming Zen 3D V-Cache ‘Vermeer-X’ CPUs, which are expected to hit the market in the first quarter of 2022.
As we move to GPUs, AMD will likely showcase more entry-level RDNA 2 designs based on the Navi 24 architecture, and may even provide an updated roadmap in 2022 so we understand where Navi and AMD’s GPU business are going next.
