AMD CES 2023 keynote announcements

There were a lot of announcements from CES for AMD, not all of which were actually mentioned in the keynote itself.

One of the most exciting announcements was the continuation of 3D V-cache chips. AMD is bringing the technology to three new chips, no longer limiting it to just a single CPU. The Ryzen 9 7950X3D is the flagship CPU, sporting 16 cores, a 5.7GHz clock speed, 144MB of cache, and a claim of 24% faster game performance than Intel’s best. The Ryzen 9 7900X3D and Ryzen 7 7800X3D round out the lineup of 3D V-cache chips.

As expected, AMD has announced its new Ryzen 7000 mobile chips for laptops as well. There’s a huge number of new chips, going up to 16 cores. Some of the chips use older CPU architecture, while the flagship ones, the 7045 and 7040 series, are built on Zen 4. It’s a pretty complicated chart of chips, but the good news is that some of them have RDNA 3-based integrated graphics onboard.

AMD also announced some new non-X desktop processors as part of its Ryzen 7000 line. These are just 65-watt parts this time around, and they’re a lot more affordable too, which should help them sell a bit better.

Lastly, AMD announced its new mobile GPUs. The AMD RX 7600M XT is the flagship, which AMD claims can beat a desktop RTX 3060.

The GPU shortage is over, and gamers around the world can breathe a sigh of relief. For those in the market for one of the best graphics cards, we looked closely at graphics card prices and availability to determine where the GPU market is headed and the best time to buy.

If you're looking for a cheap GPU deal, now is the time to buy. Cards from AMD and Nvidia usually hover around the recommended list price, but some models are actually priced well below that, and the same goes for Intel GPUs.

AMD has a lot to prove this year

AMD has clawed its way up from many disasters. Always chasing Nvidia and Intel, the so-called Team Red stayed strong over the years and found its niche in the PC market, a niche that has seemingly worked well, especially over the past few years.

Despite these valiant efforts, this past year has made me worry about the future of AMD, and the beginning of the year so far has only confirmed some of my worries.

AMD still hasn’t made the big APU dream a reality
AMD's Ryzen 8700G APU socketed into a motherboard.

I could barely contain my excitement when AMD announced its Ryzen 8000G APUs. It was a return to form, offering the latest in AMD's CPU and GPU architectures in a single package for a low price. More than that, there was hope that these would be the first APUs to allow for some serious PC gaming without the need to spend loads of cash on one of the best graphics cards.

But after testing them and looking at the other options, I'm not convinced this is the best starting point for aspiring PC gamers.
