AMD at Computex 2022
AMD reinvites its fans to watch Computex 2022 keynote next Monday.
Thus far, AMD has only confirmed it will discuss “AMD Advancing the High-Performance Computing Experience”, strongly indicating the upcoming Ryzen and Radeon products. This information was included into the Taitra/AMD press release two weeks ago.
Today, AMD updated its Computex website with an invitation to the upcoming keynote on May 23. The website’s description tells us a bit more than previous PR materials. Apparently, AMD CEO will discuss the company’s vision on ‘next generation mobile and desktop PC innovations’, which is the first confirmation that the event will cover new products rather than simply those which are already available.
Join us for the digital AMD CEO keynote at Computex 2022 as Dr. Lisa Su shares the AMD vision to advance the PC experience through next generation mobile and desktop PC innovations. Combining cutting-edge CPUs, GPUs and software, AMD and its ecosystem partners will show breakthrough performance and leadership experiences for gamers, enthusiasts and creators.
Last year at Computex AMD announced its Radeon RX 6000M series, which were later updated with faster and more efficient SKUs. Furthermore, a teaser for upcoming (at the time) FSR 1.0 upscaling technology was shown. It is very likely that FSR 2.0 will be part of the event this year.
AMD also revealed they are developing a new CPU featuring 3D V-Cache technology. It took many months for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D to come out, but such far-fetching announcements are exactly what one should expect at this keynote.
According to some rumors, AMD is to reveal its next-gen AM5 platform, including motherboards with X670 and X670E chipsets. One should also expect new information on Zen4 and Raphael (Ryzen 7000 CPUs).
Computex 2022 might be the last major event before Radeon RX 7000 series (based on RDNA3) architecture arrive. The company will probably hold a separate event once new cards are ready for launch, but Computex seems to be a great place to tell us more about the new series. Gameplay teasers powered by next-gen graphics would certainly not go unnoticed by the fans.
AMD keynote starts on May 23rd at 2 PM (GMT/UTC+8), which is 7 AM London time or 2 AM in New York. Timing could definitely be better.
