The red team has managed to create the competitive environment that hardware lovers have dreamed of recently. Lisa SU’s statements are that the table will continue in favor of users.
AMD managed to deliver the jaw-dropping IPC boost with Zen 3. On the other hand, it has achieved an ambitious efficiency on the same node as RDNA2. The firm seems determined to continue its success.
The interview with Lisa SU, who took AMD from the edge of the cliff and made Intel cold sweat on the one hand and forced Nvidia to compete in the upper segment on the other, gives an idea for the coming period.
Competition will heat up in Zen 4 / Zen 5
In Zen 4 and Zen 5, the firm will focus on being extremely competitive, according to Lisa SU. In addition, the red team, which seems to have reached a good level in Zen 4 and Zen 5 architectures, is preparing to offer high IPC increase, as in the Zen 2-Zen 3 transition.
Pointing out that a list similar to the long development list behind Zen 3’s 19% IPC increase is on the way, Rick Bergman stated that they will take full advantage of the efficiency advantage of new production nodes.
RDNA 3 will be even more efficient
The answers about RDNA 3 point out that the company will further improve the energy efficiency offered in RDNA 2. Rick Bergman drew attention to the fact that high power consumption brings along a cost increase in both non-graphics card components and BoM (components to be used in the card), which determines the price of the graphics card.
In addition, he underlined that energy efficiency, which is becoming more important in laptops, is also the determining factor in the performance to be offered in this segment. According to Bergman, efficiency will be an important focus in RDNA 3 as well.
