AMD has announced a new event called “together we advance_PCs” at which the company will showcase its next-generation technology and products. The event will be attended by prominent AMD executives such as President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su and CTO Mark Papermaster, and will be held in person and broadcast live.
As predicted and officially confirmed by the CEO, this presentation will detail the upcoming Zen 4 architecture, which should power the new AMD Ryzen 7000 Series, and there will also be more information about the new AM5 platform, built around DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 technologies.
In short, this is expected to be a major event, giving us more information on what are sure to be some of the best processors when the 7000 series launches, possibly at the end of september, as well as other announcements about new technologies.
As such, here’s the scoop on when the event is happening and how to watch it. We also have some predictions about what we expect to see during the live stream.
When is the AMD event?
AMD’s “together we advance_PCs” event takes place on Monday, August 29th and is unfortunately scheduled at rather inconvenient times for many viewers (and not a few writers), but don’t worry, we’ll still be covering that in in person and remotely.
The main event will start at 4pm PST / 7pm EST / 12pm BST, so an extra apology for those of you living in the UK. Fortunately, we’ll have all the coverage you need here, so feel free to sleep well and catch up on all the news in the morning.
If you can stay in the loop, this event is sure to introduce an interesting and impressive array of new products, so it’s worth tuning in. Here’s how to watch the AMD event.
How to watch AMD’s Advance_PCs event
AMD will stream the full event on its official YouTube channel for easy viewing. However, as of now, it didn’t load the live stream direct link, so we embed AMD YouTube channel (opens in new tab) for your convenience, and we will update the feed with the event channel when it goes live.
As soon as AMD updates their channel and adds the direct streaming link, we will update with this video. We’ll also be liveblogging about the event as it unfolds, so be sure to tune in to that as well.
A few hours after the show ends, AMD will have a full replay of the stream available on your official website.
Our AMD Event Predictions
AMD was very clear about which products and new technologies will be unveiled during the event. We already know that the company will introduce the Zen 4 architecture that powers the Ryzen 7000 series – with a lot of speculation surrounding the AMD Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X models. We will likely have a demonstration of what these processors are capable of in a variety of tasks, including gaming.
It’s also been confirmed that we’ll see a reveal of the AM5 platform built around DDR5, PCIe5, and other technologies. Since this particular technology is focused on desktop PCs, there may even be a demonstration of its capabilities.
The company can also talk more about its vertical chip stacking technology that allows AMD to “stack” cache memory on the processor, creating additional L3 cache to boost performance in games and server processes. This technology is at odds with Team Blue large architecture.LITTLE (Team Red even openly mocking this) so it would make sense for AMD to promote it further.
