AMD says PS5 and Xbox Series X custom processors and graphics cards will be shipped on time
Due to the coronavirus epidemic, the research and development efficiency of many companies has been severely affected. For example, due to the epidemic, Microsoft shifted the focus of Windows 10X from the dual-screen devices to single-screen devices.
However, not all companies’ R&D work has been severely affected. AMD is such a company that can still launch products on time according to the product launch plan.
AMD CEO Lisa Su mentioned the sales plan of the new product on the company’s second-quarter earnings conference call recently. She said that the 7nm processor and RDNA2 (or Big Navi) graphics card based on the Zen 3 architecture will still be listed as scheduled. In addition, the custom processors designed for Sony PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X will also be shipped as scheduled, so there should be no problem with these two game consoles being launched during the Christmas holidays this year.
Lisa Su mentioned that a major reason for the company’s successful performance in the second quarter was because of the Ryzen 4000 series of mobile processors.
The excellent market performance of AMD’s Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors has made Intel nervous. For example, the laptops equipped with the new Intel mobile processors provided by Lenovo are even cheaper than the old ones. At the same time, Intel is also stepping up the development of 7nm.
