Taking their sweet time, particularly on the GPU front. With NVIDIA and Intel recently showcasing their new wares, and Qualcomm also jumping in the party, all that is left is for AMD to make things official.
And the company is all set to.
The chip giant on the ascent has just announced a couple of events where it will reveal its next generation lineup of processors and graphics cards. The two families of products will be announced on separate days.

October 8 is when we will get a look at the CPUs based on the Zen 3 architecture, the follow up to the current Zen 2 architecture that powers the Ryzen 3000 desktop processors and the Ryzen 4000 mobile line of processors.
This new architecture is based on an improved 7nm process.
And is clear the AMD response for the newer Intel processors that are hitting store shelves.
Speaking of hitting store shelves, new graphics cards from NVIDIA are about to do so, at spectacular price and performance levels. To bring the fight to this front, AMD is readying its second generation scalable RDNA architecture.
It is the technology that is expected to be inside the Xbox Series X and S, as well as the PlayStation 5.
RDNA 2 will be introduced on October 28.
Two big, big days, these.
