As a prelude to Computex, which starts tomorrow in Taipei, AMD Chair and CEO Lisa Su has delivered a keynote that touched on the company’s latest processors.
She spoke on the upcoming Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processors based on the new Zen 4 architecture, to be launched in fall of 2022. The new processors will double the amount of L2 cache per core, feature higher clock speeds, and are projected to provide greater than 15 percent uplift in single-thread performance compare to the previous generation
In a momentum update, Su pointed out AMD’s strong growth in the mobile market with 70 of the more than 200 expected ultrathin, gaming and commercial notebook designs powered by Ryzen 6000 Series processors that have been launched or announced.
Other AMD executives announced Mendocino, the latest addition to the Ryzen Mobile lineup.
Expected to be priced from US$399-699, Mendocino processors are designed to deliver the best battery life and performance in the price band so users can get the most out of their laptop. The first systems featuring the new processors will be available from OEM partners in Q4 2022.
“At Computex 2022 we highlighted growing adoption of AMD in ultrathin, gaming and commercial notebooks from the leading PC providers based on the leadership performance and battery life of our Ryzen 6000 series mobile processors,” said Su.
