AMD set to detail Zen 2 and Navi architectures in August after the Computex and E3 2019 tease
AMD CEO Lisa Su might be due for a break after all these speeches and tours. After announcing her keynote plans for Computex 2019 on May 26 and E3 2019 on June 10, Su will have yet another keynote at Hot Chips 2019 on August 19 where she will highlight the "future generations of computing and graphics products" according to the announcement. The annual Hot Chips symposium serves as a platform for CPU, GPU, and PCB makers to detail their product designs to other makers in order to create better market-wide standards between various manufacturers.
In addition to the keynote above, AMD will be hosting two other sessions focusing on the architectures of Zen 2 and Navi during the two-day conference. Engineers will offer a deep dive into the silicon of the 7 nm Zen 2 set to be the basis of the 3rd generation Ryzen processor for desktops and EPYC servers. Meanwhile, the Navi talk will focus on the implementation of the GPU and the technology behind it.
It's essentially guaranteed that the talks will relate heavily to the next generation XBox and Playstation systems and so we can expect even more rumors about these unannounced consoles to come out of Hot Chips 2019. Unlike the Computex or E3 keynotes, however, these private technical presentations will not be livestreamed.
