AMD’s focus at CES 2022 is X3D packaged Ryzen products and Radeon solutions
Less than a month left until CES 2022, AMD will announce a series of new products at the conference site, and CEO Dr. Lisa Su will also give a keynote speech at 10 am Eastern Time on January 4, 2022. AMD’s official announcement did not specify the details of the event but only indicated that it will focus on introducing the Zen 3 architecture Ryzen desktop processor with 3D vertical cache (3D V-Cache) technology, as well as the innovations and solutions of Radeon graphics cards.
At present, Intel’s new generation of Alder Lake platforms has caused a relatively large threat to AMD. With the further popularization of the 12th-generation Core series processors early next year, AMD needs a strong counterattack. In this year’s Computex 2021 keynote speech, Dr. Lisa SU has already demonstrated that this innovative technology can bring an additional 64MB 7nm SRAM cache for each CCD of the Ryzen processor, increasing the L3 cache capacity of the processor from 32MB to 96MB, which is three times the original capacity. It is rumored that the new processor has been mass-produced in mid-November. According to AMD, the use of 3D stacking technology will increase overall game performance by 15%.
In terms of graphics cards, there is a high probability that AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT and RX 6400, which have been continuously reported recently. Both graphics cards use Navi 24 core, configured with 16MB unlimited cache, 1MB L2 cache, and 128KB L1 cache. MD Radeon RX 6500 XT will be configured with 16 CUs and 1024 stream processors, while MD Radeon RX 6400 will have only 12 CUs and the number of stream processors will be 768, but no external power supply is required. The two graphics cards will be equipped with 4GB of GDDR6 memory, and the memory width is 64 bits. This is also the first RDNA 2 architecture GPU with a memory capacity of less than 8GB.
