AMD has a very favorable position on the CPU market, especially now that Intel is going through rougher times caused by shortages. The red team should be able to increase the market share with the release of its 7 nm Ryzen 3000, Threadripper 3000 and EPYC "Rome" CPUs, plus the Instinct GPUs in early 2019.

Initially scheduled for a late 2018 release, AMD’s 7 nm CPUs and GPUs may actually be delayed a few months, at least judging by AMD CEO Lisa Su’s intent to showcase the new technologies at CES 2019 in early January. This will not really affect AMD’s excellent position on the market in any way, since Intel only announced 10 nm CPUs for 2019, so the red team still has a considerable advantage in this respect.

The AMD press release announcing Lisa Su’s keynote at CES 2019 may be going a bit overboard with the bold claims. Of course, AMD is trying to hype things up and sell the best it can the upcoming 7 nm products, but it also sounds like the jump to 7 nm is the next big thing since modern-day computing was introduced:

In 2019, AMD will catapult computing, gaming, and visualization technologies forward with the world’s first 7nm high-performance CPUs and GPUs, providing the power required to reach technology’s next horizon. During her CES keynote, Dr. Su and guests will provide a view into the diverse applications for new computing technologies ranging from solving some of the world’s toughest challenges to the future of gaming, entertainment and virtual reality with the potential to redefine modern life.

“AMD is transforming the future of computing in our ever-expanding digital world and revolutionizing the $35 billion gaming industry,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “We look forward to Dr. Su’s keynote as she paints a picture of the next-generation of computing that will help redefine the future of gaming and virtual entertainment.”


Previous roadmaps released by AMD showed that the 7 nm node will bring quite a wide selection of products. For the mainstream and gaming market, AMD is preparing to launch the Ryzen 3000-series CPUs and Ryzen Threadripper 3000-series HEDT chips. The server sector will benefit from the introduction of the EPYC “Rome” processors, while the computing and visualization markets will be targeted with the Instinct GPU.

As Nvidia already launched its new gaming GPUs, AMD is also expected to present a new gaming GPU lineup based on the Navi 7 nm chips, However, it looks like the gaming GPU sector is not a primary focus for AMD anymore.

The AMD CES keynote will take place on January 9 at 9 AM PT.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
