With CES 2019 barely in the mirror behind us, the consumer electronics industry is already barreling towards its next major trade show, Computex 2019 in Taiwan. And, as it turns out, leading that charge will be none other than AMD’s CEO, Dr. Lisa Su.

Announced by the show’s organizers this morning, Computex 2019 will be establishing a new “prime” keynote to kick off the show: the CEO Keynote. Delivering that keynote, the very first keynote of the show, will be Dr. Lisa Su, who will be giving a presentation to be called “The Next Generation of High-Performance Computing”.

Computex of course is no stranger to corporate keynotes and press events. However until now, the show has never held an official lead keynote (ala-CES), and rather keynotes have largely been semi-official, frequently off-site affairs. So for the show to establish a lead keynote is a big deal, overshadowed only by the fact that the organizers specifically invited Dr. Su to deliver the very first keynote, making this an auspicious honor for AMD and its CEO.

While the announcement itself doesn’t go into much concrete detail about the presentation, AMD’s 2019 roadmap is well-known at this point, with a slate of 7nm products scheduled to launch, including both AMD’s highly anticipated Zen 2 CPU architecture processors (EPYC, 3rd gen Ryzen, etc) and products based on their upcoming Navi GPU architecture. AMD has previously announced that the next generation of EPYC processors would be available in mid-2019, so Compute falls right in the middle of that timeframe.

The CEO Keynote will kick off at 10am local time on May 27th, which is the show’s usual pre-show press conference day. AnandTech will of course be there in force, and we’re looking forward to seeing just what AMD has up its sleeve.

    Goes to show how being tired will affect memory. Yep, the Penium M, and even the entire Core series is really an extension from the Pentium 3, which wasn't the first to use that design.

    That she absolutely has, at the very least she likely was the muscle all them putzes needed to put the ship headed in the right direction AND she was able to tilt the angle of said ship in subtle but effective ways.

    Ryzen was her and teams baby, amazing all around and there is likely a serious amount of things they know they can tweak that much further should it be required. Treadripper, EPYC very much are almost a culmination of ideas that cam many generations ago cementing some of it.
    Hypertransport got Infinity Fabric
    AM4 has been very great just like all previous AM sockets
    Athlon 64 became Ryzen
    Athlon FX (quad father) became Threadripper (the true FASN8 return from the dead lol)
    Opteron became EPYC

    I wish they had better thought out the 1xxx 2xxx naming earlier on as the name Ryzen+ would have been ok, but it seemed like there was way to much #$%$# confusion in this regard for nothing AND Ryzen 3xxx for the mobile crowd is NOT 7nm nor 2nd generation either which is going to $%#@$% with things even more.

    blekkk.....beyond the numbering/naming the ship has been turned into much better waters since Dr Lisa Su took over as captain, she got a team assembled, likely had a key part in tweaking things as well, she got the right talent and ensured the wrong got pushed along the merry way.

    Shem most analyst not see where AMD was, where they went, whom they face and how uphill they shot in very short order beating everyone's estimates time and again, sad that all misteps of everyone else are what hold AMD valuation lower than it should be especially when they also have to deal with their own misteps causing valuations to go wacky.

    Something big is coming...

    Too much fiber?

    You know what... I think it might be Microsoft...

    The news might be about Microsoft new datacenter centric xbox experience. Just imagine the blow to Nvidia as a statement. We all know it is coming to either E3... or there?

    How do you know they won't be using Nvidia GPUs in their streaming service?
  • SaturnusDK - Tuesday, April 2, 2019 - link

    Why would they use Nvidia? The Xbox currently uses an AMD APU so it's far more likely they'd stay on the same platform. Google Stadia also uses AMD hardware, although in the beginning they're using existing redundant Intel CPUs until they can be replaced.

    The Ryzen 3 Not the Ryzen Third Gen is clearly a budget chip so the idea of putting over 4 to 6 cores would defeat the reason for having that chip in the first place. Plus adding 16 cores to any chip limited to 24 PCI express lanes would not in any way take away from my Threadrippers 64 PCI express lanes. The cores are not in any way what separates the different chips. Even though most AM4 boards offer multiple PCIex16 slots, only ONE can be used at x16, therefore, SLI is pointless as with multiple M.2 slots. Get the point?
