As part of AMD’s quarterly earnings presentation, the company has briefly reiterated its product plans for the second-half of the year. The company was previously slated to launch new CPUs and GPUs for the client and server markets late this year, and on today’s call the company has confirmed that those plans are on track.

On the client side of matters, both AMD’s new CPUs and GPUs are currently set to launch late in 2020. The first GPUs based on the company’s RDNA 2 architecture – which is also underpinning the new Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles – will be released later this year. And AMD is confirming that RDNA2 will eventually be a “full refresh” of the company’s GPU product stacks. Meanwhile the eagerly anticipated Zen 3 architecture is set to make its desktop debut late this year as well. As always, with these sorts of events it’s prudent to note that a commitment to launch a product by a certain date doesn't guarantee that AMD will be able to have it on retail shelves by that date – though it sounds like AMD is certainly going to give it their all to avoid disappointing their user base.

Meanwhile on the server side of matters, the picture is much the same. AMD reports that they are on track to begin shipping the Zen 3-based “Milan” EPYC processors late in 2020. As well, AMD’s first CDNA architecture GPU for the data center market is set to launch late this year as well.

    I think it's a combo of allaying coronavirus concerns and dispelling the rumors that it was delayed to 2021, going on a 5nm node, etc. Reply

    Because of bullshit rumors all over the place saying Zen 3 is off the track and AMD wants it to get it on 5nm to compete against Intel RKL or some bs drama and that's why XT refresh and all sort of trash news. Reply

    Yes, this, Intel has been getting by with a lot of games, smoke, mirrors and rumors for 5 years. AMD has to keep beating the drum, because of all the money on the Intel side. Reply

    "all sort of trash news"

    You need to stop reading WCCFTech. :-)

    It's not just them - plenty of other sites (Notebookcheck is one I'm familiar with) like to pick up the rumours and launder them further, to the point that people can point to a few articles as "evidence".

    We are now living in the Disinformation Age.

    Absolutely. It's amazing how a baseless rumour gets recycled through a few articles or YouTube videos and suddenly it is, Indeed, "evidence". Reply

    Really? Zen 3 has always been 2H 2020. Nothing has changed. Reply

    I just want a release date for Zen 3. Or even a more precise ballpark than "late this year". Reply

    October is likely. That puts them ahead of an Online-Only Black Friday and the Christmas season. Reply

    They can't possibly do December or next month. That leaves September October and November. Reply
