The organizers of CES have announced that AMD President and CEO Dr. Lisa Su will keynote during next year’s event, which is going virtual due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Su has been a popular executive at past shows, so this isn’t exactly shocking.
According to a snippet on the official site, she’s expected to share more about AMD’s “portfolio of high-performance computing and graphics solutions,” which will hopefully include new insight on 5 nm Zen 4. (CES 2021 will take place Jan 11-14, 2021, so Zen 3-based Ryzen 4000 CPUs and Radeon RX 6000 Series should already be on the market.)
