Default AMD says its PS5 and Xbox Series X chips, Zen 3 CPUs, and RDNA 2 GPUs will ship on ti

AMD CEO Lisa Su shared during the companyís second-quarter earnings call that its many anticipated product launches are still on schedule to release in 2020. This includes its 7nm processors based on Zen 3 architecture, and its RDNA 2 (or ďBig NaviĒ) graphics cards. Su also shared that AMD began initial production and shipment of next-gen console chips, including for the PS5 and the Xbox Series X. Both consoles are set for release this holiday.

This is all good news for people hoping to upgrade their PCs with upcoming AMD parts, or those interested in buying a new console later this year. But itís unfortunate for Intel, which recently suffered a few big product roadmap setbacks. Intel announced that itís pushing back its already-delayed 7nm process debut for its CPUs to 2022. Whatís more, Intelís hardware chief, Dr. Venkata ďMurthyĒ Renduchintala, is also leaving the company in August.

Su shared that part of AMDís success this past quarter came from its Ryzen 4000 mobile processors, which power an increasing number of very good laptops that, for the most part, offer a lot of power and solid battery life for the money. In fact, Su stated revenue from these processors ramped up ďfaster than any mobile processor in our history,Ē so they seem to be making an impression with people who are shopping for laptops ó those made for gaming or otherwise.

AMD still expects uncertainty throughout the rest of the year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. But at least so far, the companyís more exciting consumer-focused launches are still on track.

The APU is based off the Zen 3 architecture. It is a different stock number.

I had to re-read it and check but basically Zen 3 chips are NOT on next gen consoles. They're Zen 2 although elements of Zen 3 may be present it's largely Zen 2 and the GPU is a custom RDNA2 version. The other stuff being mentioned is separate product lines etc. Shipping on time.

Honestly, AMD are doing extremely well and good choice for Sony to have stayed with them given how things are panning out. The future silicon from Zen 3 & Big Navi could end up being as early as in a PS5 Pro should we get one circa 2023 before a full on next gen PS6 upgrade comes.

Thatís because we still haven't seen the Nvidia GPUs set to release this year and according to rumour having up to 30 Teraflops worth of performance.

That would be perfect for Switch 2.

I think itís only a matter of time until AMD catches up & surpasses Nvidia.
