For 50 years AMD has driven innovation in high-performance computing, graphics and visualization technologies  the building blocks for gaming, immersive platforms and the datacenter. Hundreds of millions of consumers, leading Fortune 500 businesses and cutting-edge scientific research facilities around the world rely on AMD technology daily to improve how they live, work and play.

AMD again made technology history with the announcement of high-performance 7nm-based computing and graphics products that are expected to deliver new levels of performance, features and experiences for PC gamers, enthusiasts and content creators. During the first-ever Computex opening keynote, AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su announced.


  • The new “Zen 2” core widely outperforms the historical generational performance improvement industry trend, up to 15% estimated instructions per clock (IPC)2 uplift over the predecessor “Zen” architecture. The “Zen 2” CPU core powering the next-generation AMD Ryzen and EPYC  processors also includes significant design improvements including lager cache sizes and a redesigned floating point engine.
  • The 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desktop processor family, including the new 12-core Ryzen 9 processor, offers leadership performance.
  • The AMD X570 chipset for socket AM4, the world’s first PCIe 4.0 supported chipset with more than 50 new motherboards at launch.
  • RDNA gaming architecture designed to drive the future of PC gaming, console, and cloud, anticipated to deliver incredible performance, power, and memory efficiency in a smaller package.
  • The 7nm AMD Radeon RX 5700-series gaming graphics card family featuring high-speed GDDR6 memory and support for the PCIe 4.0 interface.

AMD High-Performance Desktop Updates

With the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen desktop processor family, AMD introduced a new category of Ryzen 9 desktop processor with the flagship 12 core/24 thread Ryzen 9 3900X. Pushing the high-performance envelope for socket AM4 by offering leadership performance1, the family is rounded out with 8 core
Ryzen 7 models and 6 core Ryzen 5 models.

During the keynote, Dr. Su showed various live demonstrations highlighting leadership performance of the 3rd Gen Ryzen desktop processors versus competitive production parts:
  • Ryzen™ 7 3700X vs. i7-9700K with real-time rendering: The Ryzen 7 3700X offered 1% more  single-threaded, and 30% more in multi-threaded performance.
  • Ryzen™ 7 3800X vs. i9-9900K with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds gameplay: The Ryzen 7 3800X matched the performance of the i9-9900K.
  • Ryzen™ 9 3900X vs. i9-9920X with Blender Render: The Ryzen 9 3900X beat the Intel i9 9920X by more than 16%.

3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Desktop Processor Line-up and Availability

AMD also introduced a new X570 chipset for socket AM4, supporting the world’s first PCIe 4.0 readiness, which exhibited 42% faster storage performance than PCIe 3.09, enabling high-performance graphics card, networking devices, NVMe drives, and more. With PCIe 4.0 doubling the bandwidth for motherboards with the X570 chipset over PCIe 3.0, PC enthusiasts can gain more performance and flexibility when building custom systems.

The X570 offers the broadest ecosystem readiness in AMD history, with over 50 new motherboard models anticipated from ASRock, Asus, Colorful, Gigabyte, MSI, as well as PCIe 4.0 storage solutions from partners including Galaxy, Gigabyte, and Phison.

AMD High-Performance Gaming Updates

AMD unveiled RDNA, the next foundational gaming architecture that was designed to drive the future of PC gaming, console, and cloud for years to come.

With a new compute unit design, RDNA is expected to deliver incredible performance, power and memory efficiency in a smaller package compared to the previous generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture. It is projected to provide up to 1.25X higher performance-per-clock and up to 1.5X higher performance-per-watt over GCN, enabling better gaming performance at lower power and reduced latency.

RDNA will power the upcoming 7nm AMD Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards which feature high-speed GDDR6 memory and support for the PCIe 4.0 interface. AMD Radeon RX 5700-series graphics cards are expected to be available in July 2019.

AMD Datacenter Updates

The AMD datacenter business continues to gain traction with customers, winning in application workloads from the biggest cloud environments to exascale supercomputing, and capitalizing on the massive market opportunity for both AMD EPYC and AMD Radeon Instinct  processors. The 2nd Gen AMD EPYC server processor family is projected to deliver up to 2X the performance-per socket and up to 4X the floating performance-per-socket over the previous generation.
