It is getting to that time of year when we start to look forward to CES in the coming year. Before we go further, of course CES 2021 is going to be 'All-Digital' in January but touch wood for a return to the physical event in 2022. CES 2021 runs from Monday 11th to Thursday 14th January.

On Tuesday 12th January the AMD CEO, Dr Lisa Su, will step up to provide a keynote speech and presentation. Su will be presenting the AMD vision for the future of research, education, work, entertainment and gaming. However more important for tech enthusiasts it is hinted that "a portfolio of high-performance computing and graphics solutions," will be unveiled. To get an idea about what AMD might be unveiling one can look at a combination of the company's official roadmaps, its history, and recent leaks.

With the recent release of the first Zen 3 architecture processors focussed at the higher end of the desktop market one might expect this lineup to be extended downwards. Think about a Ryzen 5 5500X and lower, and even some new Ryzen 3 chips. Other Zen 3 enhanced processor ranges could be in the offing too; Mobile Ryzen processors, and Epyc workstation processors might get the Zen 3 treatment at CES 2021.

Considering GPUs, we have recently seen signs of an AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT being prepared. Such a product could easily be launched alongside a non XT suffixed model, and who knows perhaps the Radeon RX 6600/XT cards too. Lastbut not least AMD could announce some RDNA2 GPUs for laptops.

As a reminder, last year AMD used CES to announce a similar array of new hardware and we reported upon the launch of the RX 5600XT graphics card, the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X, and the Ryzen 4000 Series of mobile processors.

Other confirmed CES 2021 keynotes at the time of writing come from; The CTA (organisers of the event), General Motors, and Verizon.

I think most of us would be happy if she just announced that you could buy the products they've already released!
Article (and thread) title should of course be 2021 rather than 2020.

I know many would want to erase this year from memory and start over, but sadly we can't. ;)
oooh maybe threadripper 5xxx might be announced, maybe the lack of stock on ‘everything’ is a sign and I should be getting a 32c/64t one of those instead (I've been back and forwards on it)….


Oh who am I kidding, if they can't make enough of the consumer models the ‘prosumer’ models will be even harder to get hold of…

Looks like CPUs are being delivered in their thousands this month.

Amazon UK right now have the 5600X in stock, but at £300 they can keep them. That's almost double the £155 I last paid for a 3600. Fingers crossed with availability will come sane prices.

Edit: Amazon sold out while I was typing, so don't bother checking. Get on the Stock Informer Discord channel if you want any chance.
As far as i recall 300 are the MSRP for the 5600 X ?
And that 3600 did you buy that at launch for 155 ??

Granted the 3600 as i recall was not a 300 bucks processor at launch, but the 5600X are also another beast and the price hike over older similar parts with same core count dont get much flack in reviews.

If you want results sort of immediate, ban banks in dealing in bitcoins, CUZ if those are not sell-able for real cash, no one are interested.
People are mining bitcoin to get real money, not to have a thick BC wallet so they can buy,,,,,,, i dont know i can not recall seeing any Danish shop accepting bitcoin,,,, aside for little shops i assume.
