What to expect from AMD’s Computex 2021 keynote

We expect AMD’s keynote to focus on gaming and high-performance computing. Thus far, the company has offered little hint as to what it will announce.

“The past year has shown us the important role high-performance computing plays in our daily lives — from the way we work to the way we learn and play,” Su said. “At this year’s Computex, AMD will share how we accelerate innovation with our ecosystem partners to deliver a leadership product portfolio.”

Industry observers have speculated that AMD could preview its next performance Threadripper CPU at Computex, which would feature the Zen 3 processor architecture. This certainly would showcase AMD’s leadership in processing performance. The company could also unveil new processors to its current Ryzen 5000 series of processors as well as expand its Radeon RX 6000 family with Mobile GPUs for laptops and gaming notebooks.

Additionally, AMD could showcase its updated road map for processors and graphics cards at Computex, giving gamers a preview of what to expect in the next few years. The company is also rumored to be moving to a new architecture for its next-gen RDNA 3 graphics architecture that will give the future Radeon RX 7000 series a major uplift in performance thanks to a new manufacturing process called MCM. Su could use a portion of her stage time to talk about MCM and the performance of RDNA 3 during her keynote.
