While we may have few details about AMD's upcoming AMD Ryzen 3000 and AMD Radeon Navi processors, we seem to be hearing more about them sooner rather than later. According to a new report from RedGamingTech, they learned that AMD will launch three new product platforms, including Ryzen 3000, X570 and Radeon Navi in July.
AMD Ryzen 3000 processors, X570 Mainstream motherboard and Radeon Navi GPUs announced for July 7
The source reports that, like Radeon VII, which obtained the Feb. 7 release date, which clearly highlights the 7-nm processing technology shown on the map, the July 7 (7/7/2019) version emphasizes the use of 7 nm in all traditional AMD families (GPU & CPU). It's a very good marketing approach for AMD. It is also interesting to note here that the date mentioned is the date of publication, which means that AMD would probably make an announcement earlier.

Computex 2019 seems to be the best platform for AMD to announce its new consumer product listings. Last year, at Computex, AMD announced that its 2nd generation Ryzen Threadripper processors would be available in August 2018, almost two months later. If the rumor is correct, AMD will give us a month before the actual availability starts.
We have already heard of various announcements regarding the Ryzen 3000 series, so we might see the Zen 2 in action at the AMD press conference. Computex would also give AMD partners the opportunity to showcase their new motherboards, which will also be announced at this event. Let's talk about upcoming product families, starting with Ryzen 3000.
AMD Ryzen 3000 & X570 Motherboard Specifications, Pricing and Launch – Zen Architecture 2, More Cores, Higher Efficiency / Watt, Improved CIP and 7nm Process Design
At CES 2019, AMD announced Mattise, also known as the family of 3rd generation Ryzen desktop processors. AMD has confirmed that the processors will be available in the middle of 2019, which is in line with the announced release date of July 7, 2019. The AMD Ryzen 3000 series desktop processors, as they will be labeled, will use the latest 7nm TSMC process node and the all-new Zen Architecture 2 which aims to provide a higher CPI and improved efficiency compared to the 12nm Zen + architecture that currently resides in the Ryzen series desktop processors 2000.

The first official AMD demo of their Ryzen 3000 desktop processors was a 8-core, 16-wire chip, as opposed to the 8-core, 16-core Intel Core i9-9900K processor. The AMD Ryzen 3000 series desktop processor was not only a little better than the Cine-Bench R15 multi-thread benchmark, but it also managed to consume nearly 50 W of less energy.
It's amazing considering that in just one generation AMD will surpass the Intel in terms of overall efficiency, which Intel has been leading for many generations, but their stagnant progress and heavy reliance on With respect to the 14 nm process, AMD surpassed its competitors in performance per watt and just pure performance as well.
While AMD has shown part of 8 threads, 16 threads, we are also expecting higher core number parts. Later, it was confirmed that AMD could incorporate a second Zen 2 die on the chip, which would create up to 16 hearts and 32 threads on a mainstream piece. There have been leaks of several 12 main parts and, yes, higher number of parts on the traditional platforms come with the Ryzen 3000 Series
As with every Ryzen launch, the prices will play a determining role in their popularity. The 1st and 2nd generation Ryzen chips were fantastic about their value proposition. They not only have a higher number of nuclei than their counterparts, but they also managed to run cooler and consume less energy. It is clear that this will improve with the Ryzen 3000 series, and it seems that AMD will offer much better prices for each of their respective count modes.
The top 8 models can sell for $ 199 to $ 299, the 12 main parts for $ 399, and the 16 main pieces can reach $ 499. If we're looking for such good prices, then unlike Threadripper processors that use a larger PCB and four arrays (depending on the EPYC structure), Ryzen processors will only have two arrays, which saves space and design costs. In addition, the 6 main components and 4 main components could be in the range of 150 to 200 USD, making it an ideal choice for low budget users.

The AMD X570 Chipset – A New Home for Next-Generation AMD Processors, Ryzen 3000
As we saw with X470, there were some features for the Ryzen 2000 series processors that were supported only by new motherboards such as Precision Boost Overdrive and XFR 2.0. There is no doubt that the AMD Zen 2 based Ryzen consumer processor family will offer new features, but the main highlight will be PCIe Gen4 support. The X570 platform would be a fully PCIe Gen4 solution, which means it would most likely be the first mainstream platform to support the new PCIe standard.
This does not mean, however, that the AMD Ryzen 3000 series will only be compatible on X570 cards because, just like last time, the new processors will also be compatible with X470 and X370 cards. They will not display the same features as the newly released X570 series, but will provide completely stable functionality for users who simply want to install a new processor and continue to use their PCs without having to update the motherboard. everything from scratch.
Motherboard manufacturers expect to have 12 or 16 essential components and would design their future motherboards based on this information. So we can see better power distribution and more stable operation for chips with higher cores. However, OEMs have not released any samples yet, as they are expected to be available by April this year, just before mass production of Mattise 7nm processors begins.
Radeon Navi GPU – All-new AMD GPU architecture for traditional players and high-performance players
Coming from Navi, AMD's next largest version of GPU architecture in 2 years, the company would follow a similar strategy of launching it near the traditional processor family. This would give AMD the opportunity to market its future Radeon family to potential buyers. The July 7 release date of Navi is also mentioned, but given the rumors of delay and the fact that AMD is under pressure from TSMC's manufacturing capabilities, it is possible that we would get an ad rather than a publication at the date mentioned above.
With the release of AMD Radeon VII, AMD would focus all its efforts on Navi rather than on the Vega architecture, which is now AMD's high-end offering since 2017. AMD's Radeon Vega GPUs were designed with HPC spirit, but they also served in the gaming market. There are several products for prosumers based around Vega. You can even call the Radeon VII a prosumer card, but that could change with Navi.
With the Radeon Navi GPUs, AMD would make the game a top priority. You see, in addition to high-performance, high-performance cards, Navi has long been known to power the next-generation Sony and Microsoft consoles. AMD talked about partnerships on future platforms with Microsoft games manager Phil Spencer at CES 2019, further confirming what we were told.
"With regard to the future platforms we are building and working on, the partnership and innovations we have seen in the past have led to what we have been able to do today, I think they will be of crucial importance for our future projects. I can not wait to show them more in the future. "
– Phil Spencer, Game and Xbox Manager at Microsoft
The AMD Navi GPUs have been announced as RTG's next major novelty and are probably the latest generation of GPUs to present the GCN architecture as a DNA. With Navi, AMD will focus on all-new architectural design changes that would increase its efficiency and performance. For comparison, Radeon VII uses architecture at 7 nm, but it is essentially a reduction of an existing architecture. Navi GPUs will be designed from the start at around 7nm, which would certainly help AMD to take full advantage of the 7nm process node.
Previously Lisa Su, CEO of AMD, and Mark Papermaster, CTO of AMD, both confirmed an update of their Radeon program.
"We are very happy to start on the high end with our 7 nm Radeon VII. […] and you will see ads during the year as we update our Radeon program. "
"What we do during the year is what we do every year. We will complete the whole roadmap ",
– Mark Papermaster (via The Street)
"We believe that we will be globally very competitive and that this includes the high end of the GPU market. Obviously, there are new products among our competitors. We will also have our new products and we will be at the rendezvous "
"When it comes to ray tracing in particular, I think it's an important technology, but as with all important technologies, it takes time for the ecosystem to actually embrace it. [it]. And we work closely with the ecosystem on hardware and software solutions, and we expect ray tracing to be an important element, especially as it further integrates the market, as a matter of fact. "

That said, it looks like AMD has full hands for 2019 and we are going to get many great products from its CPU and GPU divisions in the coming months. Let us know what you think and what you would like to see in AMD's upcoming announcements.
