We already have dates for the next important AMD presentations, all the details of the new AMD Ryzen processors with Zen 3 cores will be announced on October 10th and the new Radeon RX 6000 desktop GPUs with Navi 2X cores based on RDNA2 a few days later, specifically on October 28th. No doubt good news to push the competition regarding Intel processors and the new graphics cards just presented by NVIDIA.
AMD Zen 3
The new AMD Ryzen processors with Zen 3 cores are still a mystery but everything points to more cores and more speed. With the internal name of Vermer the new AMD processors will offer us up to 10 cores with the redesign of their Chiplets (cores + L3 cache packages), in addition they will have a much more detailed speed and voltage control for each core. The RAM memory will also support higher speeds through the Infinity Fabric link, a key factor in the efficiency of Zen, we will see if they support DDR5, something not rumored for now.
Next October 10th we will know all the details of the new Zen 3 but it will undoubtedly put its rival Intel in serious trouble, we are still waiting for its new products in the real market out of virtual presentations.

Radeon RX 6000
As we have seen in this next generation of consoles AMD monopolizes the sector, thanks to RDNA2 technology has managed to renew the contract with Sony and Microsoft. This new Navi 2X architecture (Big Navi) promises 2x performance over RDNA in addition to integrating technology at a hardware level compatible with Raytracing thanks to the DirectX X12 Ultimate library.
Without a doubt AMD has a very tough rival in this sector with NVidia that has just presented its impressive 3000 product line with brutal performance levels. It is to be expected that AMD will rely on the software options offered by Microsoft to compensate for its possible hardware competitive limitations, the price factor will be important and AMD can score a point in this aspect. We will see what it offers at the presentation on October 28th.
