We are nearing the end of the year 2019, and this year we saw tons of updates and releases. This year marked the launch of AMD’s Zen 2 processors marking the end of Intel’s reign over the CPU market. NVIDIA launched their new 12nm Turing Architecture with a new lineup of RTX GPUs. Due to this new hardware launch in 2020, we always have high hopes for the new year. So what do we have in the bag for the coming year ?
AMD heading towards success and domination:
AMD seems to have a lot of products to reveal next year. Rumors and leaks show that AMD is preparing to release a new graphics card under the name NAVI 23, NAVI 22, and NAVI 21. The leaks come from a Linux driver released by AMD. If all the rumors are true, the NAVI 23 is internally named the “NVIDIA KILLER.” NAVI 23 based on the RDNA 2 architecture, but we won’t be able to see this specific graphics card until Q3 of 2020. AMD is releasing the RX 5500 at Q4 of 2019, so budget 1080p gamers keep an eye on for this release.
After the release of 3950X and 3rd Gen Threadripper, AMD is planning to release the 4th Gen AMD mobile processor and maybe hinting the architectural advancement we can get to see on the fully-fledged 4th Generation desktop processors. According to a published roadmap from AMD, it shows that AMD’s 4th Gen mobile processor based on the 7nm architecture while the new desktop 4th Gen will be on the new 7nm+ architecture. We might see a small performance gain with the latest 4th Gen Ryzen processor. Maybe Ryzen 4300G? Anyone?
MSI has made big oopsie in their latest video. While introducing their new TRX40 creator motherboard in their new video, MSI mistakenly showed the task manager screen with the CPU info. Looking at the threads, that CPU is the new Ryzen Threadripper 3990X. AMD have released more information today on the 3990X and have set the launch date for the year 2020. The AMD threadripper 3990X costs $1999 and have been target to “Hollywood Creator”.
NVIDIA looking to release new Ampere Architecture:
NVIDIA shook the world when they released the new Turing Architecture and introducing Ray-Tracing to the consumer space. They aren’t stopping there; rumors are going about the hardware market that NVIDIA is looking to release the Ampere architecture for the new graphics card. NVIDIA isn’t scared of AMD and its new NAVI Graphics lineup. NVIDIA has the best performing cards in the market, and their high tier cards have no competition as they fly above cruising high. Ampere rumored to be launched during GTC or Q2 2020. AMD seems to take back the graphical space with its launch of RX 5500 and their new undisclosed NAVI 23 card, But NVIDIA isn’t afraid of what AMD throws at them.
The new Ampere has based off a 7nm chip manufactured with Samsung. Rated to have an even better performance than the Turing card and have a faster, better ray-tracing tensor core. It looks like NVIDIA isn’t quickly going to give up the graphics market to anyone. By the time Ampere comes out, there will be tons of ray-tracing supported games. So next year might be the year for Ray-traced games and hardware.
Intel set to release the 10th Gen Desktop:
Intel, now seen on the dark side as AMD began to outperform them by a considerable margin. AMD has taken back the CPU market share from Intel, and Intel products have seen a steep price drop recently. Intel looking to gain dominance in the consumer space, set to release Comet Lake processors. The 10th generation processor packed with tons of features like Wifi 6 support, Integrated UBS 3.2 support, Enhanced Overclocking support, etc.
With the new hardware release means loss of compatibility, Intel has ditched their old LGA 1151 socket and has introduced new LGA 1200. LGA 1200 paired with the new 400 series Chipset delivers 18% better performance in multithreaded workloads. No significant generational gains as they reported the 10th Gen, only being 8% better than the 9th Gen in terms of performance.
The Flagship processor i9-10900 comes with a base clock of 3.0 GHz and a boost clock of 5.1GHz with a TDP of 60W. The “K” variant has no listing, but it’s rated to have a higher TDP and higher base clock. Even the Xeon will be getting upgrades as well, but products aren’t named. Wccftech insider released information on all the chips for in-depth details on Intel’s 10th Gen Processors.
Intel seemed to wrap up the 10nm development and is willing to push ahead of the 7nm processor. They don’t seem to adapt the chiplet style, as seen on the AMD CPU. Intel look to produce a single 7nm die for its CPU. More on Intel, they have been teasing their development on the discrete graphics card. News and leaks showed that Intel is working on Intel Xe Graphics card development. Well, Good Luck on that Intel, as the competition the graphical sector tightens itself for release from 3 sides.
2020 seems to have a lot of technology brewing for the average consumer and prosumer alike. We are excited about the Ryzen 3990X Threadripper and the new NVIDIA Ampere Graphics card. There are tons of upcoming projects upcoming for the coming year, and we expect big moves and release.
