AMD has re-confirmed the launch of its upcoming 7nm products in the third quarter of 2019, including Ryzen 3000 CPUs, EPYC Rome server chips, and AMD Radeon Navi graphics cards. The launch of all three product lines is scheduled for the third quarter of 2019, and AMD was further confirmed availability during the annual general meeting.
AMD 7nm-based Ryzen 3000, EPYC Rome and Radeon Navi product lines are expected to be available in the third quarter of 2019.
The confirmation indicates that AMD is on its way to introducing the next generation 7 nm based products, including the AMD Ryzen 3000 processor for standard desktop PCs, EPYC Rome chips for servers and Radeon Navi Graphics cards for gaming PCs. All three products will be equipped with TSMC process technology and new architectures, with Ryzen and EPYC powered by the new Zen 2 CPU cores and Radeon Navi powered by a brand new GPU architecture that replaces the Vega-based predecessors.
AMD Ryzen 3000 Series Desktop CPUs – What You Can Expect
The AMD Ryzen 3000 range is based on the new Zen 2 core architecture enabled with TSMC's state-of-the-art 7nm process node. AMD has again confirmed that the Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 processors for the AM4 desktop platform will be available by mid-2019. Already during CES 2019, AMD compared an 8-core example of its 3rd generation Ryzen desktop processor with the Intel Core i9-9900K. Not only was the AMD sample faster, it also consumed much less power.
However, the sample was just the tip of the iceberg, as AMD assured that it was still an early version and the final tact rates would be higher in sell variants. In addition, it was later confirmed that the Ryzen 3000 series CPUs contain up to 16 cores, as there is room for a second Zen 2 chip on the main chip interposer, which has the enthusiast-level multi-threading performance AM4 platform should bring.  AMD has made significant changes to the CPU architecture, helping to achieve twice the throughput of the first-generation Zen architecture. The main features include a completely redesigned execution pipeline, important floating-point advances that double the floating point registers to 256 bits, and double bandwidth for load / store units. One of the major enhancements for Zen 2 is the doubling of core density, which means that we now look at twice the core number for each core complex (CCX).
- Improved Execution Pipeline
- Doubled floating point value (256 bits ) and load / store (double bandwidth)
- Doubled core density
- Half the power per operation
- Improved branch prediction
- Better prefetching of instructions
- Newly optimized instruction cache
- Larger operation cache
- Increased send / retire bandwidth
- Maintaining high throughput for all modes
Zen 2 also includes stronger hardware-level improvements when it comes to security , This will further strengthen AMD CPUs over extended Specter variants, and these mitigations will be fully adopted by Zen 2. In terms of security, AMD already had strong software-level support and further improved it through low-level mitigation
AMD X570 chipset – a new home for AMD's Next-Gen CPUs of the Ryzen 3000 Series  As we saw on X470, there were some features for Ryzen 2000 series processors that were only supported by new motherboards like Precision Boost Overdrive and XFR 2.0. There is no doubt that AMD's Zen-2-based Ryzen mainstream processor family will be equipped with new features, but the main focus is on supporting PCIe Gen4. The X570 platform will be a pure PCIe Gen4 solution, meaning that this will most likely be the first consumer platform to support the new PCIe standard.
However, this does not mean that the AMD Ryzen 3000 series is only compatible with X570 cards, as the new CPUs are backwards compatible with X470 and X370 cards, as was the case last time. They are unlikely to offer the same capabilities that will be available in the newly launched X570 family, but provide completely stable functionality for users who simply need a new CPU and want to continue using their PCs without the hassle of upgrading the motherboard Everything from scratch.
AMD Radeon Navi Graphics Cards – What to Expect
We know a few details about the features that AMD Navi GPUs would support, such as: Sony and Microsoft consoles using AMD Navi 10 GPUs and Zen 2-based Ryzen CPUs. There has also been talk of introducing Variable Rate Shading on Navi GPUs to modernize the Radeon graphics card for the mainstream market.
Navi may be the last GPU architecture based on AMD's GCN (Graphics Core Next). DNA. AMD's Linux driver has confirmed that Navi is indeed based on GCN and has the latest GFX1010 codename, while Vega has been named GFX900. The Navi architecture has made some significant improvements to the IPC, and 7nm efficiency would be a figurehead of the new cards, which would deliver more dramatic results than the Radeon VII, which is also based on 7nm technology. but it's just a smaller Vega 10 GPU (Vega 20).
We've already seen a leaked PCB shot for an upcoming navi-based GPU with GDDR6 memory and some rumors I've listed below, but one thing is for sure: Navi-based Radeon GPUs will replace the existing mainstream While the Radeon VII will serve as the flagship of AMD's enthusiast market until a high-end sat nav card is introduced, which is currently rumored to spread for some time in 2020.

AMD EPYC Rome Server Processors – What to Expect
What the EPYC Rome As far as processors are concerned, AMD has confirmed that they are planning to launch in Q3 2019, which should be a few months away from the Ryzen and Ryzen thread ripper processors. It is expected that the AMD EPYC Romeo processor family will increase the market share of AMD's server CPU to 10% by 2020. This is an important aspect, considering that Intel's ex-CEO Brian Krzanich has stated that AMD does not want to achieve a 15% market share, but that this is true. Demand for and adoption of EPYC processors on key server platforms should be 15 % not too far away.
Just for the sake of number, Dell has announced EMC that they will triple their AMD server offering by introducing more EPYC series of processors.
"Of about 50 platforms we have today," he said, "three of them are AMD – we're likely to triple that by the end of this year."  He also confirmed that Dell EMC in the second half In the year 2019, it will bring to market servers powered by AMD's latest architecture – a 7nm architecture codenamed "Rome".

Bas With such strong growth and acceptance rates, we can assume that AMD will support Intel's Xeon efforts and acceptance Server page will burden significantly. We should expect up to 64 cores and 128 threads, as well as impressive PCIe Gen 4 connectivity with up to 162 lanes, as summarized here.
It should also be noted When AMD designed its 7nm Zen 2 EPYC Rome processors, they appreciated Intel's performance internally Next generation server. The next-generation 10 nm part, known as Ice Lake-SP, is scheduled to be launched in 2020, with Cascade Lake-SP and Cooper Lake-SP as an interim solution based on 14nm (++) and Cascade Lake -AP and Cooper Lake -AP would be designed as a multi-core HPC part.
"Rome was designed to compete with the Xeons of Ice Lake, but it will not compete with this chip. We are incredibly excited, and everything comes together at one point. "- Forrest Norrod.
"Our plan for the Naples-Rome-Milan roadmap was based on assumptions about Intel's roadmap and our assessment of what would happen. We do it if we were Intel," continues Norrod.
"We thoroughly thought about what they look like, how they do not look, how their culture is and what their likely reactions are, and we planned it against a very aggressive Intel roadmap and I really like Rome and Milan and what is after them against what we thought Intel could do. And then we realize that they can not do what we thought possible. So we have an incredible chance
. AMD confirmed that Rome's EPYC processors are designed to compete with Intel's Ice Lake SP parts. This just means that AMD would have an even greater lead over the Intel 14nm ++ server parts introduced this year.
One of the biggest advantages of EPYC Rome processors over Intel parts is that they are compatible with EPYC Naples. Of the providers that used Naples, AMD would on the first day have a drop-in compatibility for the 7nm Receive EPYC processors from Rome.
AMD seems to be in a really good position with its EPYC server processors, even more than its desktop and mobility portfolios. If everything goes smoothly for AMD and its long-term Zen roadmap in the coming years, we can see that they are again dominating all sectors of the CPU market.
AMD has scheduled several events to pre-announce the upcoming products with Computex 2019 on May 27 and E3 2019 on June 10. AMD will be showcasing its new products as well as announcing the correct availability dates for its consumer-centric product groups previously proposed for the official launch in July 2019.
