AMD today announced that its CEO Dr. Lisa Su will host a virtual keynote at next year’s Consumer Electronics Show/CES event. The keynote will take place on January 12, 2021.
Due to the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic, most of the public events and tech/gaming expos have been cancelled, so as a precautionary measure AMD will host the event on a digital platform.
Back in July, the Consumer Technology Association already announced that the CES 2021 event will be presented as an all-digital online only experience.
We expect AMD to make two major announcements at CES 2021. The first would be on AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 5000 mobility CPUs codenamed as Cezanne and Lucienne. These mobile processors will be based on the Zen 3 and Zen 2 refresh core architectures, respectively.
Secondly, we also expect AMD to unveil its next-generation RDNA 2-based Radeon RX 6700-series of Navi 22 GPUs. CES 2021 seems like a perfect opportunity for the announcement of both these products.
AMD might also talk about the upcoming HEDT Ryzen Threadripper 5000-series of processors for content creators, which are based on the Zen 3 architecture, but we are not fully sure about this.
But the company will surely confirm support for the Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 Desktop CPUs on the 400-series motherboard chipsets through a new and official AGESA BIOS firmware, which the red team will roll out to its respective board partners.
