What to Expect from AMD's Computex 2021 Keynote
We expect AMD's keynote to focus on games and high-performance computing. So far, the company has given little indication of 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," said Su. "At this year's Computex, AMD will share with our ecosystem partners how we are accelerating innovation to deliver a leading portfolio of products."
Industry watchers have speculated that AMD might preview its next performance Threadripper CPU with the Zen 3 processor architecture at Computex. This would certainly demonstrate AMD's leadership in processing power. The company could also introduce new processors for its current Ryzen 5000 processor series and expand its Radeon RX 6000 family with mobile GPUs for laptops and gaming notebooks.
In addition, AMD could present its updated roadmap for processors and graphics cards at Computex and give players a preview of the next few years. The company is also rumored to be moving its next-generation RDNA 3 graphics architecture to a new architecture that will give the future Radeon RX 7000 series a significant performance boost thanks to a new manufacturing process called MCM. Su could use some of her stage time to talk about MCM and the performance of RDNA 3 during her keynote.
