Computex 2022

AMD Computer 2022 Lisa Sue

Computex is happening in Taipei this week – the show will officially start tomorrow but the keynote of Microsoft happened when I was compiling this newsletter; It ended just before AMD.


  • AMD’s most important news is announced Desktop Ryzen 7000 processor Based on Zen4 architecture.
  • It will get AMD CPUs beyond the 5GHz barrier, and will need a new motherboard as well: the current AM4 motherboards are no longer suitable, moving to AM5, the first need for a new motherboard in about five years.
  • Other specs: Fabed in a 5nm process, supports more L2 cache, DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 and more lanes, and breaks that 5GHz barrier to display a chip clocked at 5.5GHz. Also, the chiplet method remains (here it is two 5nm Zen 4 CPU modules, and a new 6nm I / O die, which will include basic graphics in an iGPU, not actually for gaming but diagnostics, such as Intel).
  • The top-line number is good but not a game-changer in the race against Intel.
  • AMD says the Zen 4 has a 15% single-threaded uplift on top of the 5950X that just sounds right, not surprising.
  • AMD just isn’t really giving all the details, there’s no final specs, so it’s probably waiting to talk about sandbagging or Intel’s 13th-gener chips, Raptor Lake, before saying anything.
  • However, we will wait for it to come out in the autumn for an overall analysis; And while no pricing has been set yet, CPU has no official name yet.

Also from AMD:

  • A “MendokinoThe chipset was also unveiled and I’m just going to quote Edge Here’s what AMD promises:
  • “… a new series of Ryzen laptop chips that combine four Last-Gen 2 CPU cores with TSMC’s latest RNNA 2 graphics from the 6nm process to provide more than 10 hours of battery life on a single charge – all priced between $ 399 and $ 699. That includes both the Windows machine and the Chromebook. “
  • Now, AMD has made such promises year after year.
  • But in 2022 AMD CPUs are not considered weird and weird for laptops, which means there are now 200 options set for 2022. Excellent!
  • One of them will be from Corsair. Memory Builder is an unveiling Full AMD-exclusive gaming laptop, Which comes after the acquisition of Origin in 2019. We don’t know much, but there is a touch bar (common F-function key) powered by “stream deck” technology. Stream deck, not steam deck. Got it?


  • Microsoft talked about Windows 11 with our old friend Panos Panay, Microsoft’s chief product officer but it wasn’t about new things, more Windows 11 and partner devices.
  • Not too new here… but, there’s probably a good reason.
  • Microsoft Build Also happening this week (May 24-26): This is where we get the big announcements.


🔨 ICYMI: The new Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 offers some speed bumps and efficiency improvements. Our guys have benchmarked the 8 Plus Zen 1 chip but the first real device to get one would be something from Xiaomi, probably the Xiaomi 12 Ultra. OnePlus, Motorola, Asus and others suggest releasing devices with the chip in the coming months. (Android Authority).

🍎 a Hand-in-hand with Apple’s 79-pound DIY repair kit to replace 1.1 ounce iPhone battery Says: “The more I think about it, the more I realize that Apple’s self-service repair program is the perfect way to show that the company supports the right-to-repair policy without actually encouraging them.“Which is true! It is also true that you will find all the pro tools. Only in a complex, risky, discouraging way. (Edge).
