According to the official roadmap, the Zen 3 architecture will be based on TSMC’s second generation 7nm process (7nm EUV), with reports that IPC performance will continue to improve by 17%. During this year’s CES interview session, AMD CEO Dr. Su Zifeng answered some important topics of concern to the outside world, including the following:
1, everyone will certainly see Zen 3 this year;
2, AMD this year will launch a video card to support ray tracing technology;
3, high-performance Navi core graphics card on the road;
4, there will be navi GPU APU processor;
5, the new desktop APU is still too early, after all, it is only January;
6, TSMC 7nm supply is indeed tight, but gradually improved over time;
7, AMD is concerned about ARM and RISC-V, but does not consider this to build high-performance processors, x86 system is still the most suitable choice.
As for the high-performance Navi graphics card, which supports ray tracing, is said to be based on the RDNA2 architecture and may carry 5,120 stream processors, AIB says it can at least level with the RTX flagship.
