Lisa Su calls 2020 AMD’s “year of high-performance computing” – A big year for Radeon

2020 is due to be a big year for AMD, solidifying its gains in 2019 with Ryzen and EPYC with a focus on “high-performance computing”, both within the CPU and GPU markets. 

That’s right, 2020 is due to be a big year for Radeon, with AMD’s Lisa Su stating that “Our focus at AMD is in on pushing the technology envelope in high-performance CPUs and high-performance GPUs.”

This year, AMD plans to deliver “high-performance solutions to the PC, gaming and datacenter markets”, which means that Radeon will have a huge role in the companies continued success. AMD doesn’t want to play second fiddle to Nvidia anymore, and that means that AMD needs to create high-end Radeon products. 

In Lisa Su’s comments to CRN, she claimed that AMD’s product roadmap required “big technology bets 3-5 years in advance of products coming to market.” This reveals that AMD’s current success comes as a result of long-term planning, which extends to both Ryzen and Radeon. 

Later today, AMD plans to host its 2020 Financial Analyst Day, and here is where we expect AMD to discuss its long-term vision. Lisa Su has already confirmed that we can expect to hear about Radeon at the event, but at this time it is unknown what AMD plans to reveal. 2015’s Financial Analyst Day saw AMD announce their “Zen” CPU architecture, leading us to expect AMD to give analysts a peek at their product roadmaps for both Zen and Radeon. 

AMD’s Financial Analyst Day will be streamed at 1 PM PST today through AMD’s website.
