AMD unveils next-genera­ti­on hard­ware and soft­ware road­maps, expan­ded pro­duct port­fo­lio addres­sing new mar­kets, and stra­te­gies to acce­le­ra­te data cen­ter growth and deli­ver per­va­si­ve AI leadership

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today at its Finan­cial Ana­lyst Day, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) out­lined its stra­te­gy to deli­ver its next pha­se of growth dri­ven by the company’s expan­ded port­fo­lio of high-per­for­mance and adap­ti­ve com­pu­ting pro­ducts span­ning the data cen­ter, embed­ded, cli­ent, and gaming markets.

From the cloud and PCs to com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons and intel­li­gent end­points, AMD’s high-per­for­mance and adap­ti­ve com­pu­ting solu­ti­ons play an incre­a­singly lar­ger role in shaping the capa­bi­li­ties of near­ly every ser­vice and pro­duct defi­ning the future of com­pu­ting today,” said Dr. Lisa Su, AMD chair and CEO. “The clo­se of our trans­for­ma­tio­nal acqui­si­ti­on of Xilinx and our expan­ded port­fo­lio of lea­ders­hip com­pu­te engi­nes pro­vi­de AMD with signi­fi­cant oppor­tu­nities to deli­ver con­ti­nued strong reve­nue growth with com­pel­ling share­hol­der returns as we cap­tu­re a lar­ger share of the diver­se $300 bil­li­on mar­ket for our high-per­for­mance and adap­ti­ve products.”

Tech­no­lo­gy and Pro­duct Port­fo­lio Updates
AMD announ­ced expan­ded mul­ti-genera­tio­nal CPU core, gra­phics, and adap­ti­ve com­pu­ting archi­tec­tu­re road­maps inclu­ding new details on the:

  • Zen 4” CPU core expec­ted to power the world’s first high-per­for­mance 5nm x86 CPUs later this year. “Zen 4” is expec­ted to incre­a­se IPC 8%-10%1 and deli­ver more than a 25% incre­a­se in per­for­mance-per-watt2 and 35% over­all per­for­mance incre­a­se com­pa­red to “Zen 3” when run­ning desk­top app­li­ca­ti­ons3.
  • Zen 5” CPU core plan­ned for 2024, which is built from the ground up to deli­ver per­for­mance and effi­ci­en­cy lea­ders­hip across a broad ran­ge of workloads and fea­tures and inclu­des opti­miz­a­ti­ons for AI and machi­ne learning.
