AMD tease two dates in October for Zen 3 and RDNA 2

By - | Views: 19,840

Are you ready for the next generation of AMD processors and graphics? Well, AMD have two events planned in October so it's time to get excited again.

We don't know exactly what they will announce, as they've only just given us the dates. For Zen 3 their new CPU architecture we're getting something on October 8, and for RDNA 2 their new GPU architecture some event is happening on October 28. Quite a while to wait on both counts, which is a little surprising.

Source - AMD Gaming Twitter, teasing that "A new era of leadership performance across computing and graphics is coming. The journey begins on October 8.".

NVIDIA only just recently announced the RTX 30 series, with them due to release this month so AMD are running quite behind here overall. We knew they were both due to be properly announced this year though, and with the pandemic it probably hasn't been easy for any vendor to keep to their schedules.

This is all especially exciting though! On the CPU side, because AMD are continuing to be extremely competitive on both price and performance while Intel are struggling with smaller processing nodes. So AMD coming back again, with another push forwards is going to be fun to see. On the GPU side though, is where things get even more interesting, partly because this will bring Ray Tracing as well. Having all PC GPU vendors with Ray Tracing should bring it forwards, especially with Intel's new Xe-HPG GPUs coming next year too also with Ray Tracing.

What are you hoping for? Are you excited? Let us know in the comments.

Will be interesting to see the price tags, esspecially for the GPUs, because there had to be a reason Microsoft picked it for the new XBox, so I hope both performance and price will be good.
