AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su Reveals Coming High-Performance Computing Inflection Point in CES 2019 Keynote

— Power­ful new genera­ti­ons of 7nm AMD com­pu­ting and gra­phics pro­duc­ts to enab­le crea­tors, rese­ar­chers and inven­tors to sol­ve the world’s toughest and most inte­res­ting chal­len­ges —


AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today high­light­ed his­to­ric leaps in com­pu­ting, gaming and visua­li­za­ti­on tech­no­lo­gies expec­ted in 2019 based on a com­bi­na­ti­on of lea­ding-edge 7nm tech­no­lo­gy and the most advan­ced com­pu­ting and gra­phics designs the com­pa­ny has ever crea­ted. During her CES 2019 key­note pre­sen­ta­ti­on, AMD Pre­si­dent and CEO Dr. Lisa Su announ­ced the world’s first 7nm gaming gra­phics pro­ces­sing unit (GPU), AMD Rade­on™ VII; detail­ed the world’s fas­test pro­ces­sor for ultrat­h­in lap­tops1, 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen™ Mobi­le pro­ces­sors; and pro­vi­ded the first public demons­tra­ti­on of the upco­m­ing 7nm 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ desk­top pro­ces­sor. Su was joi­ned by a num­ber of indus­try lumi­na­ries inclu­ding Micro­soft Exe­cu­ti­ve Vice Pre­si­dent of Gaming Phil Spen­cer, Mas­si­ve Enter­tain­ment Mana­ging Direc­tor David Pol­feldt, and FNATIC Co-Foun­der and Chair­man Sam Mathews.

Su’s key­note focu­sed on sol­ving the world’s toughest and most inte­res­ting chal­len­ges through high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting and gra­phics inno­va­ti­on. From brin­ging a storyteller’s visi­on to life through digi­tal cha­rac­ters, to hel­ping com­mu­nities come tog­e­ther through a sha­red love of gaming, to sol­ving some of our toughest chal­len­ges in the realms of edu­ca­ti­on, health­ca­re, cli­ma­te chan­ge and ener­gy solu­ti­ons, AMD sees incredi­ble oppor­tu­nities to app­ly more power­ful com­pu­ting tech­no­lo­gies to sol­ve some of society’s toughest pro­blems.

This is an incredi­ble time to be in tech­no­lo­gy as the indus­try pushes the enve­lo­pe on high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting to sol­ve the big­gest chal­len­ges we face tog­e­ther,” said Su. “At AMD, we made big bets several years ago to acce­le­ra­te the pace of inno­va­ti­on for high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting, and 2019 will be an inflec­tion point for the indus­try as we bring the­se new pro­duc­ts to mar­ket. From our 7nm Rade­on™ gra­phics chips to our next-genera­ti­on 7nm AMD Ryzen™ and AMD EYPC™ pro­ces­sors, it’s going to be an exci­ting year for AMD and the indus­try.”

AMD Gaming Graphics Updates

Rein­for­cing its com­mit­ment to next-genera­ti­on gaming lea­dership, AMD announ­ced the world’s first 7nm gaming GPU, AMD Rade­on™ VII, desi­gned to deli­ver excep­tio­nal per­for­mance and ama­zing expe­ri­en­ces for the latest AAA, esports and Vir­tu­al Rea­li­ty (VR) tit­les, deman­ding 3D ren­de­ring and video edi­t­ing app­li­ca­ti­ons, and next-genera­ti­on com­pu­te workloads. The AMD Rade­on™ VII gra­phics card pro­vi­des 2x the memo­ry2 and 2.1x the memo­ry band­width3, up to 29 per­cent hig­her gaming per­for­mance on average4 and up to 36 per­cent hig­her per­for­mance5 on average in con­tent crea­ti­on app­li­ca­ti­ons com­pa­red to the AMD Rade­on™ RX Vega 64 gra­phics card, enab­ling maxi­mum set­tings for extre­me frame­ra­tes at the hig­hest reso­lu­ti­ons. It also pro­vi­des seam­less, high-refresh HDR gaming6 at 1080p, ultra­wi­de 1440p and 4K, and powers the next-genera­ti­on pho­to and visu­al crea­ti­on app­li­ca­ti­ons on razor sharp, vibrant 8K moni­tors.

AMD Rade­on™ VII gra­phics card is expec­ted to be avail­ab­le begin­ning Febru­a­ry 7, 2019.

AMD High-Performance Desktop Updates

For the several thousand key­note atten­de­es and the record-size CES key­note live­stream audi­ence, AMD per­for­med the first public demons­tra­ti­ons of the upco­m­ing 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ desk­top pro­ces­sor. The 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ pro­ces­sor is based on the new AMD “Zen 2” x86 core built using world-lea­ding 7nm pro­cess tech­no­lo­gy. It is expec­ted to deli­ver new levels of per­for­mance7 and will be the world’s first PC plat­form to sup­port PCIe 4.0 con­nec­tivi­ty8. The new AMD Ryzen pro­ces­sors will offer bet­ter gaming, crea­ting and strea­ming expe­ri­en­ces than ever befo­re with a fas­ter and quie­ter PC.

The live demons­tra­ti­on show­ed a 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ desk­top pre-pro­duc­tion pro­ces­sor vs. an Intel Core™ i9-9900K pro­ces­sor in a real-time ren­de­ring demons­tra­ti­on using Maxon Cine­bench R15. The AMD Ryzen pro­ces­sor offe­red com­pa­ra­ble per­for­mance at appro­xi­mate­ly 30% lower power9. Addi­tio­nal­ly, Dr. Su show­ed the power of AMD tech­no­lo­gy working tog­e­ther with a live gaming demons­tra­ti­on of a 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen™ desk­top pro­ces­sor in an AMD socket AM4 plat­form pai­red with an AMD Rade­on™ VII gra­phics pro­ces­sor.

The 3rd Gen Ryzen™ desk­top pro­ces­sor is plan­ned for intro­duc­tion in mid-2019.

AMD Server Updates

The AMD EPYC™ dat­a­cen­ter pro­ces­sor had a tre­men­dous first year, win­ning in the big­gest cloud envi­ron­ments, and amas­sing more than 50 EPYC™-based plat­forms ship­ping from lea­ding ser­ver pro­vi­ders.

Su show­ed the world’s first 7nm dat­a­cen­ter CPU, code­na­med “Rome,”10 based on the “Zen 2” x86 core. Su revea­led the real-world power of the next genera­ti­on of AMD EPYC™ by demons­tra­ting a step-func­tion increa­se in dat­a­cen­ter pro­ces­sor per­for­mance using the sci­en­ti­fic app­li­ca­ti­on NAMD, which simu­la­tes lar­ge bio-mole­cu­lar sys­tems. The demons­tra­ti­on com­pa­red a sin­gle pre-pro­duc­tion EPYC™ “Rome” pro­ces­sor to two high-end Intel Xeon Pla­ti­num 8180 pro­ces­sors, and the sin­gle next-genera­ti­on EPYC™ pro­ces­sor deli­ve­r­ed appro­xi­mate­ly 15% hig­her per­for­mance11. By using EPYC™-based sys­tems, AMD is hel­ping sci­en­tists to advan­ce their rese­arch and get clo­ser to fin­ding the next big solu­ti­ons.

The AMD EPYC™ “Rome” pro­ces­sor is on track to start ship­ping in mid-2019.

AMD Mobile Computing Updates

AMD laun­ched the 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen™ Mobi­le pro­ces­sor with Rade­on™ Vega Gra­phics, deli­vering the world’s fas­test pro­ces­sor for ultrat­h­in lap­tops. With up to 12 hours of gene­ral pro­duc­tivi­ty and 10 hours of video play­back bat­te­ry life12, 4K HDR video capa­bi­li­ty and Micro­soft Modern PC fea­tures, the 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen™ Mobi­le pro­ces­sors deli­ver the ulti­ma­te enter­tain­ment expe­ri­ence for the modern lap­top buy­er.

A record num­ber of AMD Ryzen-based note­books powe­red by the 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen™ Mobi­le pro­ces­sor with Rade­on™ Vega Gra­phics are expec­ted to be avail­ab­le in 2019 from Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Hua­wei, Leno­vo and Sam­sung.

AMD tests con­duc­ted on AMD refe­rence plat­form con­fi­gu­red with 1 x EPYC 7nm 64 core SoC, 8 x 32GB DDR4 2666MHz DIMMs, and Ubun­tu 18.04, 4.17 ker­nel and using the AOCC 1.3 beta com­pi­ler with OpenMPI 4.0, FFTW 3.3.8 and Charms 6.7.1, achie­ved an average of 9.83 ns/day; ver­sus Super­mi­cro SYS-1029U-TRTP con­fi­gu­red with 2 x Intel Xeon Pla­ti­num 8180 CPUs, 12 x 32GB DDR4 2666MHz DIMMs and Ubun­tu 18.04 , ker­nel 4.15 using the ICC 18.0.2 com­plier with FFTW 3.3.8 and Charms 6.8.2, achie­ved an average of 8.4 ns/day.

  12. Tes­ting by AMD per­for­mance labs as of 12/4/2018. “Bat­te­ry life” defi­ned as hours of con­ti­nuous usa­ge befo­re the sys­tem auto­ma­ti­cal­ly shuts down due to deple­ted bat­te­ry. Video play­back tested accord­ing to Micro­soft WER metho­do­lo­gy, while “gene­ral usa­ge” is tested via Mobi­le­Mark 14. Results pre­sen­ted in minu­tes, in order of: 1st Gen AMD Ryzen™ 7 2700U Mobi­le Pro­ces­sor (100%) vs. 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen™ 7 3700U Mobi­le Pro­ces­sor.

    Gene­ral Usa­ge:
    Ryzen™ 7 2700U: 8.1 hours vs. Ryzen™ 7 3700U: 12.3 hours (51% lon­ger)

    Video Play­back:
    Ryzen™ 7 2700U: 6.9 hours vs. Ryzen™ 7 3700U: 10 hours (40% lon­ger)

    Ryzen™ 7 2700U Test Sys­tem:
    Leno­vo Ide­a­Pad 530s, Ryzen™ 7 2700U, 2x4GB DDR4-2400, Rade­on™ Vega10 Gra­phics (dri­ver 23.20.768.0), 1920x1080 AUO 403D 13.9” panel, 512GB Toshi­ba KBG30ZMT512G SSD, 45Whr bat­te­ry, 150 nits bright­ness, Win­dows® 10 x64 RS4.

    Ryzen™ 7 3700U Test Sys­tem:
    AMD Refe­rence Mother­board, AMD Ryzen™ 7 3700U, 2x4GB DDR4-2400, Rade­on™ Vega10 Gra­phics (dri­ver 23.20.768.0), AUO B140HAN05.4 14” panel, 256GB WD Black WD256G1XOC SSD, 50Whr bat­te­ry, 150 nits bright­ness, Win­dows® 10 x64 RS5.

    Results may vary with dri­vers and con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on. RVM-164
