Ryzen 3000 CPUs could debut as early as Computex 2019 later in May.
After leaving the tech community in the dark since CES 2019, AMD has finally announced an official launch date for the long-anticipated next-gen Radeon GPUs. According to an official statement, the chipmaker is set to announce its upcoming gaming products for consoles and PCs at the ‘Next Horizon Gaming’ event at E3 2019.
While the press release didn’t go into the specifics of what products are going to be announced, it is quite apparent that the chipmaker is set to debut its next-gen Navi GPU architecture for PCs as well as the semi-custom silicon that’s being developed to power the next generation Xbox and PlayStation consoles.AMD’s next generation of Radeon graphics cards presumably the RX 3000 series are set to be based on the new Navi architecture and could offer stiff competition to Nvidia’s RTX 2060 and 2070 with some rumours suggesting a better price-to-performance ratio than what Nvidia is offering with the GeForce RTX 2070 and 2060.

There’s also a good chance that AMD will announce the new Navi-based cards with price and specification information, holding back on a commercial release sometime later in Q3. Given the company’s confirmation that the new cards will arrive in the third quarter, a commercial release date may not be that far off.
AMD is yet to reveal its 3rd Gen Ryzen CPUs built on the Zen 2, 7-nanometre architecture. However, we’re likely to see those processors later in May at Computex 2019 during the event’s first ever keynote.
