AMD announced a new event called “Together We Advance_PC,” where the company will showcase its next-generation technology and products. The event will feature top AMD executives, including President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su and CTO Mark Papermaster, and will be held in person and streamed live.
As predicted and later officially confirmed by the CEO, this presentation will detail the upcoming Zen 4 architecture, which is expected to power the new AMD Ryzen 7000 series, and there will also be more information on the new AM5 platform, built around DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 technologies.
All in all, this is expected to be a great event that will give us more insight into what are sure to be some of the best processors once the 7000 series is released, possibly as soon as the end of September, as well as other announcements about new technologies.
As such, here’s the scoop on when the event will take place 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_PC” event takes place on Monday, August 29, and unfortunately it’s scheduled at a rather inconvenient time for many viewers (and not a few TechRadar writers), but don’t worry, we’ll still be covering it in person and remote form.
The main event will kick off at 4pm PST / 7pm EST / 12am BST, so an added apology to those of you who live in the UK. Fortunately, we’ll have all the coverage you need right here, so feel free to get a good night’s sleep and catch up on all the news in the morning.
If you can stay awake, this event is sure to feature an exciting and impressive array of new products, so it’s worth tuning in to. Here’s how to watch the AMD event.
How to watch the AMD Advance_PCs event
AMD will stream the entire event on its official YouTube channel, making it easy to watch. However, as of now, it hasn’t uploaded the direct livestream link, so we’ve integrated AMD’s YouTube channel. (opens in a new tab) for your convenience, and we’ll update the feed with the events channel when it’s released.
Once AMD updates their channel and adds the direct stream link, we’ll be sure to update with that video. We’ll also be live blogging the event as it unfolds, so be sure to tune in too.
A few hours after the show ends, AMD will have a full replay of the broadcast available at their official website.
Our AMD Event Predictions
AMD has been quite clear about what products and new technologies it will introduce during the event. We already know that the company will be showcasing the Zen 4 architecture that powers the Ryzen 7000 series, with much speculation surrounding the AMD Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X models. Chances are we’ll get a demo of what these processors are capable of in a variety of tasks, including gaming.
It was also confirmed that we will see a presentation of the AM5 platform built around DDR5, PCIe5 and other technologies. Since this particular technology is focused on desktop PCs, there might even be a demo of its capabilities.
The company could also talk more about its vertical chip stacking technology that allows AMD to “stack” cache memory on the processor chip, creating additional L3 cache to improve performance in server and gaming processes. This technology is at odds with that of Team Blue architecture big. SMALL (The Red Team even openly mocked it), so it would make sense for AMD to promote it more.
