In 2014, Dr. Su was chief operating officer responsible for integrating AMD's business units, sales, global operations and infrastructure enablement teams into a single market-facing organization responsible for product strategy and execution.
Dr. Su joined AMD in January 2012 as senior vice president and general manager, global business units and was responsible for driving end-to-end business execution of AMD products and solutions.
As for the event itself, AMD is expected to deliver a range of announcements. No particular product is mentioned but we can expect a few if high-performance launches from AMD. The first and the most obvious one is the AMD Ryzen 5000 mobility lineups codenamed Cezanne and Lucienne. These will be based on the Zen 3 and Zen 2 refresh core architecture and bring faster performance in the mobility segment.
We can also expect AMD to unveil its next-generation RDNA 2 based Radeon RX 6700 series family which will bring Navi 2X in the mainstream segment and positioned directly against the likes of RTX 3060 Ti and below. Just like the RX 6800 series, we can expect the RX 6700 series to offer absolutely insane performance per dollar value. AMD will also be announcing support for Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs codenamed Vermeer on 400-series motherboards through a new and official AGESA (18.104.22.168) firmware that its board partners are currently testing out internally.
Just to recap, last year, the red team made several announcements that included Ryzen 4000 CPU lineup for the mobility segment, RX 5000 high-end GPUs for the mobility segment, the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X flagship HEDT CPU, the Radeon RX 5600 XT desktop graphics card, and also gave us a first teaser of the RDNA 2 GPUs along with several roadmaps detailing their CPU & GPU portfolio. Overall, it's an event no one should miss if you're interested in high-performance computing so stay tuned!
