Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Welcome NeoGAF to the AMD Next Horizon Gaming event viewing and discussion thread



What to expect:
This conference will probably mostly be technical details about the next-generation AMD products. We may get some more technical details about the chips powering Xbox Scarlett as well as next generation PCs.

Where to watch:




Have fun





Go red team!

AMD will actually disappoint a lot of people.

If these GPUs and CPUs don't deliver twice the performance for half the price, it becomes a failure.

Pretty sad.

An historic day, and something many youngsters haven't witnessed, because of the painful slowdown in process tech.

When I got into the PC (33MHz 486 - the *first* decent x86 chip that finally added FPU support on the die), process tech was burning hot. CPUs had just gotten *passive* cooling. And with the 486, the rapidly improvement in every metric of the CPU was about to go crazy. Shrink and improve, shrink and improve, shrink and improve. No longer. Now every true shrink is a rare incredible event, as we grind our way to the last ever shrink.

AMD is going 7nm and 7nm (CPU and GPU). Way, way ahead of Intel (whose own process tech is now an official *bust*, but that hardly matters since it is now known their CPU architecture is utterly *broken* and should be used by no-one). Ahead of Nvidia, cos Nvidia is taking the greatest risk in its corporate history (good for them) and betting the farm on EUV at Samsung (Samsung has *never* beaten TSMC - but things change).

Zen is the first exciting thing to happen to CPUs since Intel's 'core' (but now we know core was only 'good' cos core was *broken* and had zero thread security).

Navi is the beginning of the culmination of AMD's work into fundamental efficiency in their GPUs, something Nvidia conquered with Pascal a few gens back. AMD is drawing at least level (and likely ahead for a moment, techwise, until Nvidia gets its 7nm) with Nvidia (tho actual performance depends on their die size, of course). But Navi is also revolutionising the new consoles.

Indeed Zen and Navi have biggest impact on consoles, since PC gamers could always power up via very high spends to compensate. Although on the PC side AMD is making better performance way more affordable, even if current AMD affordable maximal performance doesn't beat yesterday's mega expensive solutions from Intel (pre-mitigations) + Nvidia.

In other words 7nm is bringing the sea change other major shrinks brought in the early days on a far more frequent schedule.

And future shrinks? Don't hold your breath. Your lifetime may see only *two* more true shrinks.

I'll be there to see AMD Ryzen reach 5GHz with such huge gains in IPC combined, this should be momentous.....I'm also there to see Navi with only 40CU's kicking ass and taking names...…..Remember, Polaris was only 36 CU's......Better performance over RTX 2070 with only 4CU's more, speaks a lot to the IPC/architectural gains they made with Navi......Can't wait....

Well the 3pm PST start time is clearly bullshit

3PM Pacific Time is still several hours away. It's currently 11:41am PST. This is coming on after the Ubisoft conference, but before Kinda Funny or Square Enix.

If people expect twice the performance for half the price vs NVIDIA/INTEL...People really deserve the anal assault they get by said companies with their prices to performance ratios......AMD is no charity......Yet, I've never seen them offer a product that was not well balanced price to perf......

Jesus Christ. You’re right! I was thinking 3PM PDT was two hours ahead and not two hours behind.

Everyone can laugh at me now.

I am ready for this. I've been rocking my 4790k for around four years and I've been wanting to upgrade.

I'll still wait for benchmarks, but AMD's offering is looking good.

AMD wants to give me exactly what I want.

I like this.

Next Generation Playstation talk

But we confirm nor deny nothing

Same for Xbox Scarlett, nothing

What will chip makers do to improve their chips then? Will we be getting minuscule improvements year after year starting soon?

They really need to mic that crowd. Take a hint from Bethesda's playbook.

Something post-silicon. How many years on stagnant silicon before that is the question.
