Among the items touched upon by AMD in today’s earnings release, CEO Dr. Lisa Su’s prepared remarks included a brief update on AMD’s GPU product roadmap.

For those of you wondering where AMD’s mobile Radeon RX 6000 (Navi 2x) parts are, you shouldn’t be waiting too much longer. At the start of this year AMD announced that RDNA2 mobile products would be launching in the first half of the year, and on today’s call, Dr. Su has confirmed that this is still the case. At this point the company is expecting the first notebooks using its mobile-suitable GPUs to launch later in the quarter – which means that the hardware itself should be shipping to OEMs and ODMs soon.

Overall, AMD is continuing to ramp production of GPUs in what continues to be a tight environment for 7nm production capacity at TSMC, as well as the packaging AMD’s advanced chips require. Today’s financial release didn’t include any further information on when additional (mid-range) desktop video cards would launch, but those are expected on a similar time scale as AMD’s mobile parts.

    How are Bitcoin wallets being seized? I get that you can ban the use of Bitcoin so that nobody in the country can officially offer it as an option but is there a way to seize the wallet? Or are they linking the wallet to an individual (not an impossible task) and then going after the individual? Or going after known large mining operations and seizing their wallets?

    i mean they shouldn't take away the bitcoin but with there great firewall i don't get why they just don't block the signals tbh

    OMG I have a great idea why doesn't USA use crypto to pay off its debt 🤯 with mining of course

    AMD, like nVidia, has their hands tied on capacity and they are unable to accurately project mass-availability, as both are married to, and only to, TSMC. While nVidia and AMD have long relationships with TSMC, it isn't unrealistic to point out the obvious: TSMC will produce for the highest bidder.

    I don't understand why AMD is suffering from TSMC chip constraints, they should have ordered Global Foundries for the production of navi21, like Polaris, TSMS is buried in orders .

    Global Foundries doesn't have the technology to produce all Navi chips. It's not like Polaris.

    This. Navi is TSMC 7nm, porting it back to a lesser process is costly, takes time and is generally not a good idea. Rocketlake is a good indication why ...

    It would be a shame for consoles to be stuck with lesser hardware.
  • yeeeeman - Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - link

    they use tsmc cause the process is very good.
    global foundries would turn them into a hot mess.

    Global Foundaries best node is 12nm LP+ (14nm for HP). All FinFET. The former are based on Samsung's process and the latter licensed from Samsung.

    They abandoned their 7nm attempt and there hasn't been word of them trying again.

    The only games in town are TSMC and Samsung. And Samsung's offering isn't as good (though still good).
