It’s no secret to anyone that in the second half of this year AMD will introduce new Ryzen 4000 desktop processors based on Zen 3 (Vermeer) and video cards based on Navi 2X GPUs with RDNA 2 architecture. Now Chinese sources are ready to specify the timing of the announcement of these new products .
It is reported that AMD will officially introduce consumer news at the beginning of the fourth quarter of this year. That is, tentatively, announcements should take place in the coming October. At the same time, it is possible that AMD will hold the presentation a little earlier – as part of the Taiwanese Computex 2020 exhibition, which was postponed to the last days of September this year. Note that the current Ryzen 3000 processors and Radeon RX 5000 video cards were presented just at last year’s Computex.
As for the timing of the appearance of new products on sale, there is no exact data yet. Most likely, Radeon RX video cards based on Navi 2X can be bought soon after the announcement – just in October. But Ryzen processors 4000 Vermeer generation may be delayed, and in October they will only take their so-called “paper” announcement.
In the second half of this year, the release of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series video cards on Ampere GPUs is also expected. There are no specifics on the timing of the announcement and release of these devices, but recent leaks indicate that the wait is relatively short. And by the fourth quarter, it seems that we are waiting for an interesting fight in the segment of video cards.
As for the processor market, here too we can expect increased competition. At the beginning of next year, Intel may introduce Rocket Lake-S processors, which, although they will be carried out according to the 14-nm process technology, but will become carriers of a new architecture, different from the bored Skylake.
