AMD President and CEO Lisa Su announced the third generation Ryzen desktop processor at the company’s CES keynote presentation Wednesday. It’ll launch in mid-2019, Su said, though no pricing information has been mentioned.
AMD demoed it briefly running Microsoft’s Forza Horizon 4, on the7nm GPU announced today, maintaining a consistent frame rate over 100fps at 1,080p. And on a side-by-side Cinebench multicore test versus the Intel i9-9900K, it slightly outperformed the Intel.
“This system is the most advanced PC gaming hardware in the world, together in one system — third gen Ryzen, [and] Radeon VII,” Su said.
The Radeon VII will debut before the Ryzen processor, landing in stores February 7 for $700, and will come bundled with digital copies of Resident Evil 2, The Division 2 and Devil May Cry 5.
