AMD announced in its latest financial report that its Zen 4 processors and RDNA3 graphics cards will be released this year, as previously indicated.
A discussion of the company's considerable revenue increase in 2021 and its projections for AMD in 2022 followed.
Demand for our product is very high, and we look forward to another year of significant growth and stock gains as we ramp up our current production and launch the next wave of Zen 4 CPUs and RDNA 3 GPUs. We have also made significant investments to ensure the capacity necessary to support our growth in 2022 and beyond.
Regarding capacity, Lisa Su noted that in addition to TSMC, the firm has had issues sourcing chips from other suppliers, and that they have been working aggressively to strengthen the supply chain. AMD was negotiating with its suppliers and sacrificing some revenue to absorb some of these increases and not completely pass them on to the end user, and will continue to do so throughout 2022 to try to improve the market situation as much as possible. While RDNA3-based GPUs are still unknown, AMD did discuss Zen 4-based GPUs. A new Ryzen 7000 processor based on Zen 4 with revised I/O and a vastly better processing architecture will be introduced to the consumer market. AMD will also debut new EPYC processors featuring Zen 4 cores, as well as a cloud-optimized variant called Zen 4c, in which instructions not utilized in cloud computing are deleted to reduce core size and allow for more cores per DIE, up to 128 cores per CPU.
It's unlikely we'll hear much more about them until late May at Computex 2022, when we might see some demos, and then their release in late September or early October. October.
