As if the Playstation 5 and XBox rumors haven't been rampant enough, we can expect even more speculation pieces once AMD gives the deep technical dive into both Zen 2 and Navi during the private Hot Chips 2019 conference.

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
