Watch the AMD Computex 2024 Keynote Here

Expect to see Zen 5 and more at AMD’s Computex 2024 keynote

AMD will be hosting Computex 2024’s opening keynote, and the company has confirmed that they will be “sharing the latest” on the “next generation of high-performance PC, data center, and AI solutions” at the event. At a minimum, this means that we will be seeing AMD’s upcoming Zen 5 CPU architecture at the event. Even so, AMD has not specifically revealed what they plan to showcase.

Lisa Su will be hosting the AMD Computex Keynote. The event will start at 2.30 am BST on June 3rd. In local Taipei time, the keynote starts at 9.30 am. The event will be streamed live on YouTube and we have embedded that stream below.

Regardless of what AMD showcases, it is clear that Zen 5 will be part of the showcase. AMD’s next-generation PC and data center CPUs will be powered by Zen 5 CPU cores. Beyond that, AMD’s next-generation AI-enhanced Ryzen CPUs will feature XDNA 2 AI accelerators and Zen 5 CPU cores.

Computex 2024 is an important event for AMD. Here is where AMD will showcase all of their most impactful products. Here, we expect to see new Ryzen CPUs, EPYC CPUs, and XDNA and Instinct accelerators. At the event, we expect to see AMD’s partners showcasing future AM5 motherboards and other AMD-powered products.

The Next Generation of AMD processors

AMD has stated that they are now sampling Zen 5 processors with customers and that “the silicon is looking great”. When discussing Turin, AMD”s CEO Lisa Su has stated that they will deliver “significant performance and efficiency increases” over today’s Zen 4 offerings. On top of that, AMD has stated that “there are 30% more Turin platforms in development from our server partners”. This places AMD in a position where they can grow their data center CPU sales. It may even allow AMD expand into new areas of the data center market.

With their “Strix” mobile processors, AMD’s planning to deliver Zen 5 CPU cores alongside RDNA 3.5 graphics and an XDNA 2 NPU. This brings together AMD’s latest AI processing tech and the company’s newest CPU cores. These changes will deliver boosted performance in traditional workloads and emerging AI workloads.

Sadly, AMD has not commented on their Ryzen 9000 series desktop CPU plans. AMD’s Ryzen 9000 series is expected to be the brand name for the company’s Zen 5 based AM5 processors. Today’s AM5 motherboards will support these new processors. Even so, it is likely that AMD also plans to launch a new series AM5 based motherboards alongside Zen 5.

You can join the discussion on AMD’s Computex 2024 keynote on the OC3D Forums.
