AMD chief reaffirms arrival of Zen 4 processors and RDNA3 GPUs this year

AMD chief reaffirms arrival of Zen 4 processors and RDNA3 GPUs this year

Preparations for the new series are on schedule, with reds opting for the supply chain.

AMD recently released its business results for the last quarter of 2021 and the full year, and the numbers give shareholders confidence that the company set a record for both revenue and profit last year.

Lisa Su, CEO of AMD, spoke to investors this year about the conference call, confirming that we can still count on the next generation of Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 processors and RX 7000 Radeon video cards based on the RDNA 3 microarchitecture. appearance.

The CEO also spoke about these not so long ago, at CES 2022 in early January, but it is good to know that no factor has emerged since then that would jeopardize the start of the second half of the year.

“Demand for our products is very strong and we look forward to another year of significant growth and earnings per share as we roll up our current products and introduce the next wave of Zen 4 CPUs and RDNA 3 GPUs. we have invested in the capacity to support our growth in 2022 and beyond ”

said Lisa Su. The CEO reported that they have worked hard over the past 4-5 quarters to strengthen their supply chain, so they have a “very good” feeling about meeting the 2022 targets. However, capacity expansions that consume heavy sums can also be reflected in product prices:

“We always think long-term and work with our supply partners and customers to find ways to share the extra costs. However, the emphasis is on providing the supplies we need to meet high demand.”

So AMD is proud of the improvements in the supply chain, but it would be a shame to hope that by the Christmas shelves will be shrinking from the video cards available at the recommended consumer price. On the other hand, the fact is that Lisa Su herself and Nvidia’s CFO Colette Kress have repeatedly stated that the easing will start in 2022.

And in terms of the magnitude of the improvement, Pat Gelsinger, Intel’s first man to enter the GPU market, may be close to the truth, waiting for supply and demand to balance by 2023.
