Advanced Micro Devices Inc has uncovered its next generation graphics processor and power-efficient and smaller computer chip.
Unveiling these chips will help the AMD for better competing with its bigger rival Nvidia Corp and Intel Corp.
On Wednesday, a preview of AMD’s third-generation Ryzen CPU chips for desktop users was given by Lisa Su, Chief Executive Officer of AMD, during her keynote address at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
Competing with PC processors by Intel, for Ryzen CPU chips, AMD has been intending a roll out at about mid-2019.
Also in mid of this year, AMD will start shipping its next generation of EPYC server chips whereas shipping of its Nvidia gaming chips challenger Radeon VII graphics chips will be started from Feb 7, said CEO.
AMD’s new 7nm manufacturing technology can boost performance at lower power and packs more transistors on smaller chips and all three recent chips are based on that new technology.
A renouncement of making such advanced manufacturing techniques on its own and rely upon outside supplier such as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd for that was announced by the AMD last year. TMS has also been making 7nm chips for Apple as some analysts believe.
AMD had launched Zen chips in 2017 and further developed Zen 2 which is an advanced form of Zen and used that architecture in its Ryzen CPU chips and EPYC server chips. According to many tech websites, AMD will be outperforming the Intel in chip performance and if not so then it will be leveling at least.
Power consumption of Ryzen III was found 30 percent less than Core i9 CPU chip of Intel, as showed by Su during her keynote.
For AMD’s Radeon graphics chips to be used on Google’s recently announced video game streaming service, Project Stream, Alphabet Inc’s Google was partenering with AMD, also announced Su.
