AMD’s new sales department objectives are going to be something we’ll cover in the coming weeks and months.
We’ve been covering these objectives since the first announcement of them in January.
At the time, AMD was targeting sales of $10 billion in 2019 and $12 billion in 2020.
The company has since said that it is aiming for sales of over $15 billion in 2021 and $17 billion in 2022.
But AMD hasn’t released any sales targets for 2021 and 2022.
Instead, AMD has promised to target $20 billion in sales of its next-generation APUs in 2021, and $25 billion in 2018 and 2019.
Thats $3 billion per year in sales.
We’ll get into that more in a moment, but first let’s take a look at what AMD is aiming to achieve in 2021.
AMD is promising to deliver: $30 billion in hardware revenue in 2021 AMD will also claim to have the most advanced graphics processing architecture in the world.
AMD’s next-gen APUs will boast 64 cores and 8GB of RAM and feature a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface.
We have yet to see a GPU designed by AMD to rival Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
The graphics processing core of the APUs is expected to be based on the company’s Zen architecture, which is based on its Zen microarchitecture.
AMD claims that its next generation graphics processing unit (GPU) will deliver the most complex, advanced, and powerful graphics processing capability in the industry, surpassing even the best mobile GPUs in the market today.
AMD has also said that the APU will be the first of its kind to support DirectX 12.
AMD says that the Zen architecture will be capable of operating at 4Gbps data rates and 3D performance at up to 32.5 Gbps data rate.
AMD also claims that it will be able to provide 4K Ultra HD video gaming, allowing for a gaming experience that is as immersive as the finest movies, games, and TV shows.
AMD hopes to launch its first Zen-based graphics processors in 2021 through its subsidiary, ZenMicro.
The first Zen micro-architectures will be shipped to customers starting with AMD’s APUs and then eventually rolling out to other AMD APUs.
AMD will release more details about ZenMicro in the months ahead.
We will be covering ZenMicro more extensively in the weeks ahead, but AMD has released a teaser image of a Zen microprocessor that we believe you will enjoy.
The teaser image shows AMD’s upcoming APU, the Ryzen 7 1800X.
We are looking forward to seeing more of AMD’s Zen microprocessors in the near future.
AMD was also hoping to launch the first Zen APU for laptops in 2021 with the release of its ZenBook 7, but that didn’t come to pass.
The ZenBook has been delayed and AMD is still hoping to deliver an APU capable of running on the ZenBook.
AMD would also like to launch Zen Mobile APUs that are based on AMD’s Threadripper processors in the future.
In 2020, AMD plans to launch a second Zen APUs for notebook PCs and tablets.
However, the first one, the Zen Mobile Pro, has been pushed back to 2018.
We expect that AMD will eventually launch two new Zen-powered APUs before the end of the year.
The final Zen-branded APUs we expect to see are the Zen-W, Zen-E, and Zen-X lineups.
It will be interesting to see if AMD will bring the Zen desktop APUs to market for 2019.
