As for the event itself, AMD is expected to deliver a number of announcements. No specific products are mentioned, but we can expect a few if high-performance launches from AMD. The first and most obvious is the AMD Ryzen 5000 mobility setups codenamed Cezanne and Lucienne. These will be based on Zen 3 and Zen 2 update core architecture and provide faster performance in the mobility segment.
We can also expect that AMD will unveil the next generation RDNA 2-based Radeon RX 6700 series family, which will bring the Navi 2X into the regular segment and placed directly against such as the RTX 3060 Ti and below. Just like the RX 6800 series, we can expect the RX 6700 series to offer absolutely insane performance per dollar value. AMD will also announce support for Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs codenamed Vermeer on 400 Series motherboards through a new and official AGESA (184.108.40.206) firmware that Board partners are currently testing internally.
Just to summarize, last year the red team made several announcements that included the Ryzen 4000 CPU range for the mobility segment, the RX 5000 high-end GPUs for the mobility segment, the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X flagship HEDT CPU, the Radeon RX 5600 XT desktop graphics card, and provided us also a first teaser of RDNA 2 GPUs along with several roadmaps describing the CPU and GPU portfolio. Overall, it is an event no one should miss if you are interested in high performance computing, so stay tuned!
