AMD CEO Lisa Su announced that its 7nm processor and many of the company’s anticipated products are still on schedule to launch in 2020. Su said this during the company’s 2020 second-quarter earnings calls.
The products scheduled for launch include 7nm processors based on Zen 3 architecture and its RDNA 2 (or “Big Navi”) graphics cards.
Su also says that AMD has started the initial production and shipment of next-gen console chips. This includes the RDNA 2 chips to power Sony’s PS5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X. Both consoles are set to be released later this year.

According to Su, AMD recorded a huge success in the second quarter of 2020 with its Ryzen 4000 mobile processors. The Ryzen 4000 processor offers a lot of power and solid battery life for the money. So far, it’s been doing well as it is now powering an increasing number of very good laptops.
Su even stated that revenue from the processors ramped up “faster than any mobile processor in our history”. AMD is on track, even though it expects a bit of uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The chipmaker still fares better in comparison to rivals, Intel. Intel unlike AMD is experiencing product delays for products that are already behind schedule. The company’s Chief Engineering Officer, Venkata Renduchintala, also stepped down from his role earlier this week, with his role being divided into five different teams which will report directly to CEO, Bob Swan.
Although Intel did not give a specific reason for Renduchintala’s departure, the announcement follows news that its next-gen 7nm chips are delayed until at least 2022. Meanwhile, AMD is on schedule to launch its own version of the 7nm processor this year.
