AMD: Mid-range RDNA2 cards will launch in 1H 2021, Cezanne in February

Posted on Tuesday, January 12 2021 @ 18:02:29 CET by

Via a digital news conference, AMD announced the first laptops with RDNA2 based video cards will ship in the first half of this year. The company also mentioned that mainstream RDNA2 desktop video cards will be released before mid-2021 but didn't go into specifics.

During the livestream, a render was shown of a short single-fan card as well as a double-fan model (see the 17 second mark in the Twitter clip below). Presumably, the single-fan card was a Radeon RX 6500 series card while the latter could be a Radeon RX 6700 series part. The cards weren't discussed in detail so it seems a launch isn't imminent. The Radeon RX 6700 is most likely delayed to March, as was rumored a week ago.

The firm did launch Cezanne, the new Ryzen 5000 series mobile APU:
To support the dramatic shift to working and learning from home, AMD launched new AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors based on the “Zen 3” core, combining industry-leading performance with the power efficiency needed for next-generation mobile PC computing.

  • The world’s top notebook OEMs, including Asus, HP and Lenovo, will all bring AMD Ryzen 5000 systems to market starting in February, with more than 150 systems expected to launch this year.
  • The newly announced family of AMD processors includes AMD Ryzen 5000 U-Series Processors optimized for thin and light notebooks, as well as AMD Ryzen 5000 H-Series Processors for mobile gamers and creators.
  • Availability will start in February and Cezanne promises a big uplift in performance versus Renoir. AMD also revealed the Ryzen 9 HX, a new high-performance unlocked processor series for gaming laptops.

    The 5980HX will be an eight-core, sixteen threaded chip with up to 4.8GHz Boost, 20MB cache (L2+L3), and 45W+ TDP.
