AMD Radeon Vega II Gaming GPU & Ryzen 3000 CPUs TBA in January


It appears that AMD is planning to go all-out this CES (in January). As per a report from WCCFTech, team red is almost certainly expected to reveal the Ryzen 3000 CPUs, along with a new APU lineup, and here’s the kicker, after a very long time, a high-end gaming GPU to compete with NVIDIA’s RTX lineup as well.

We’ve been talking a lot about the Ryzen 3000 CPUs. We know that they will be based on the Zen2 micro-architecture and will bring notable performance improvements over Zen+, especially in the gaming department. A new APU lineup, possibly Picasso is also expected to make an appearance.

And now for the important part, the new Radeon gaming GPU. As per rumors, the new consumer graphics card from AMD will be called the Radeon RX Vega II and will be an offshoot of the Vega 20 GPU, the same chip expected to power the upcoming next-gen Xbox console. It’ll be interesting to see how NVIDIA reacts to this move, and whether the GeForce GTX 11-series is actually a thing and if yes, which sections of the market will it cater to and where they’ll fit in between the pricey RTX cards.

As of now, there’s no word on the specifications of the Vega II GPU, but the release is imminent, nonetheless. All three chips, the Zen2 CPUs, the APUs (Zen2 paired with Vega?) as well as the Vega II will be based on the 7nm node. AMD is the first manufacturer to fully migrate to the 7nm process, and it’s only a matter of time before the others (NVIDIA and Intel) follow. Still, it’s nice to see red leading for a change. This is still a developing story, and we’ll keep updating it as we get more info.
