AMD is set to reveal their next-gen CPUs and GPUs in October

Last week, NVIDIA announced its upcoming Ampere GPUs, setting a new benchmark for the GPU world. With the RTX 3070 being faster than the current-gen RTX 2080TI at only a fraction of the cost, NVIDIA came out guns blazing.

We have known that AMD has been working on the RDNA 2 architecture, which is also the backbone of the upcoming Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5. Alongside the next-gen consoles' release, AMD wanted to bring RDNA 2 to PC Enthusiasts with the "Big Navi" release. However, not much is known about these new cards, and other than what we know about the consoles, there have not been any benchmarks done publicly on the new RDNA 2 architecture.

But, finally, we have a bit of news. AMD revealed that they would be holding two events next month to showcase their upcoming CPUs and GPUs. The first event, on October 8th, will showcase their forthcoming Zen 3 CPUs. On October 28th, the second event will showcase their upcoming RDNA 2, or "Big Navi" GPUs.

I am excited to see what AMD will reveal. They have some major competition with the RTX 3000 series cards, and I wonder how they will tackle native ray-tracing support and if they will have similar technology to NVIDIA's DLSS 2.0.

With RDNA 2 being the backbone to the new consoles, I am expected to be blown away with what AMD will bring to PC gaming, and it may cause me to entirely switch from Intel/NVIDIA to AMD!
