AMD to Unveil Vega, Navi, and Zen 2 Next Week?
Ashley Allen / 2 weeks ago
An insider has revealed that AMD is set to divulge information on its next-gen CPU and GPU technologies very soon. At a Sunnyvale event on 16th May, the company will discuss its new Navi and Zen 2 (otherwise known as Zen+) CPU and Vega GPU architectures, according to WCCFTech.
16th May AMD Event
“AMD will finally be disclosing more information about its next generation CPU & graphics architectures Vega, Navi and Zen+ in 10 days,” WCCFTech’s Khalid Moammer reports. “The company is set to unveil its long-term CPU & graphics roadmaps for 2017 and beyond in a little over a week, sources close to AMD have told us.”
Not an Official Launch
Moammer stresses that this is not an official launch event, but rather a broader discussion of AMD’s future. Its future plans, though, rely heavily on its new architectures.
“AMD’s CTO Mark Papermaster, RTG Chief Architect Raja Koduri and Computing & Graphics head Jim Anderson will all join CEO Lisa Su on stage at the company’s headquarters in Sunnyvale to discuss AMD’s long-term vision,” Moammer explains. “Vega, Navi and Zen+ cores will take center stage. This will not be a Vega launch.”
When is AMD Launching Vega, Navi, and Zen 2?
AMD is on course to launch its Vega architecture before the end of June. Navi, the GPU generation beyond Vega, won’t emerge until sometime in 2018. Zen 2 is expected early 2018 in the form of the Pinnacle Ridge CPU family.
